I bought this zine off the recommendation of Martin Ralya and holy crap I am so glad I did. The art is beautiful and the writing follows suit very nicely! Thought my OSR game of choice is Lamentations of the Flame Princess and the stats here are presented as Labyrinth Lord it's still all OSR so the heart is in the right place. I purchased the Print-On-Demand version and it is lovely. The size and quality are exactly what I would like for a POD zine with gorgeous color covers and a nice content level for the price. There are exactly three things that might be listed as cons:
- Very slight formatting error (although I'll be damned if I can find it now so no big deal)
- The fungus table has a reference to a future issue of Wormskin (I'm buying them all but a con for folks that just buy this one)
- I find the forest texture very difficult to read in print (print is grayscale, PDF is color)
That last one is the only real con for me but it's offset by having the pdf where the colors make the map just look dandy.
In addition to the pros of all of the articles being full of flavor and general awesome, I LOVED the fungus tables. Grimalkin are cool, Moss Dwarfs are rad, but I would buy this again just for the fungus table and its potential hooks.
Well done, y'all!
