I really enjoyed this issue! The barbarian clans described are interesting, maps are (as always) well done, and the plot hooks for the town of Tervissa provide good adventure fodder. My favorite piece was the "A Bone, A Stone" game; PCs in my campaign will see this at some point.

Is there a PoD copy planned? I enjoyed being able to order the softcover version of the August 2021 issue. There should be a place where can just subscribe to the soft-version copies. ;)

Hi Gawain,

I have to wait a few weeks for the POD version print proof to come to me, but once I have it and know the print version is okay, then I'll release that version for free (you only pay print and postage) as well. I'll announce it on my social media sites.

Unfortunately, the magazine is a side project for me, as all the work I do on it is free of charge and I have to make a living producing other content. The 'occasional' release dates means no subscription service - sorry.

You can follow me on social media to know when new copies and other products are available, either on twitter at @SteveStillStand or facebook at LaidbackDM (sorry for the lack or real links, as sometimes DrivethruRPG doesn't like them).


Steve :)

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
