Manor #3 Cover
A quick rant. I've been noticing the card stock is not the size it says it is. Its supposed to be the same size as regular paper, but its been short like a 1/8 of an inch vertically and horizontally. It makes it look like my zine is wearing high water pants.
Back to the zine. Each issue I've feature an OSRian on the back cover. I pick someone whose work I'm currently excited about and would like to help promote. This time around its John Stater's Blood & Treasure RPG. I've blogged about it in the past and think its a great addition to the retro clones. Hit the link and John's got some freebies to download including a great adventure called The Tumbled Towers. I'll be converting Mine of Rot & Disease for B&T.
I have 95% of issue #3 finished. I'm editing the first part and then will have someone look it over to minimize my goofs. Again, those of you who buy the print version you'll get the PDF free. I've added content to the PDF version because I don't have to worry about page count electronically. I have a handful of NPCs I wanted to stat out for the GM to use or should I say Treasure Keeper to use and I didn't want to take up that space with character sheets. This way the TK can print them out instead of flipping around. I am guessing the 2nd week of February as a release date. Hoping sooner. I need to get my gaming warchest refilled to buy some of the cool stuff that's out there.
I'll be posting about any price changes coming this week. I don't think there will be any change to the US shipping and none to very little for Europe and Australia. Canada looks to be the biggest change. More than likely be combined with the rest of the world. But I'll know more when I get to the post office and have a con fab with my main man down there. He's sports a 70's stashe like only a postal worker can.
