Table-top RPGs from back in the day and today.


This is quick reminder that we’ll be taking the numbers for the ‘zine we’re launching at GROGMEET (12th November). If you want a hard copy then you’ll need to register at the Patreon site with a $3.50 plus level backing before the end of September.

PDFs will be available to all backers, but I think you’ll really enjoy having the real thing.

Here is a hint of what you can expect:

  • This week I have received a FANTASTIC cover, exclusively designed by a very, very special artist from back in the day. There’s further artwork on the way from great professional artists who have contributed to the ‘zine.
  • The GROGMEET Games Masters have made special contributions about the games that they are running at the event.
  • There’s an excerpt from the memoir we wrote before we did the podcast, that covers the very first game we played and our struggles to find other players.
  • @dailydwarf explores the delights of the White Dwarf small ads page
  • SAFE WORD – a FATE accelerated scenario set in the world of Jerry Cornelius, with a personal mix-tape for every single copy of the ‘zine, which one will you get?
  • A special short story from a best-selling author
  • A special ‘Collected @dailydwarf’ supplement featuring the collected works from the podcast so far.
  • much, much, more!

We will be printing a copy for every Patreon above $3.50 from the 1st October, every attendee of GROGMEET, +20 copies for friends, supporters, contributors and personal use.

    How could I have missed this?!

    Is it too late to join the patron and get hard copy zine? Or have I missed the boat? (I’m Australian so that’s almost a pun maybe?)

    There are still a handful of the hard copies left. The PDF will be available to Patreons over the weekend.

    If you join the Patreon campaign, it’s still possible to get one – but once they’re gone they’re gone – strictly limited to 100 copies.

    Hey Dirk!

    Just recently found The Grognard Files via your Tunnels & Trolls episodes (which were amazing). Now I’m going back to the beginning and listening from Ep. 1 on. Really enjoying the podcast. I even joined the Patreon campaign tonight.

    But after reading your message above, I hope I’m not too late to grab one of the last hard copies of the ‘zine. I guess I’ll just have to take my chances and roll the dice… 😀

    Keep up whatever you guys are doing. It’s really quite good and there aren’t enough podcasts like yours. And, hey, if you decide to add more Tunnels & Trolls, I wouldn’t object.
