The GROGNARD Files

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

It was officially launched at GROGMEET 2016… and now it is virtually yours!

The 100 hard copies of the first annual GROGZINE have been released into the wild. They are appearing in the nooks and crannies of the globe. They’re popping up on podcasts and appearing on  timelines.

You can get a PDF of the ‘zine by supporting the podcast at Patreon. A new ‘zine is planned for next year and new goals for the campaign will be updated in early 2017.

The podcast will always be free, but the tips cover the overheads, help us seek out new material and allow us to develop other related projects.

The ‘zine includes:

  • Great artwork from Russ Nicolson and Mark Laming
  •  A special Open Box featuring the GROGMEET games masters remembering Star Wars (WEG), Shadowrun, Boot Hill and GangBusters
  • Judge Blythy with the first instalment of The Armchair Adventurer’s Memoir
  • Ed in the dwarf-coverShed scrap-booking Call of Cthulhu
  • @dailydwarf poking in the corners of White Dwarf’s small ads
  • An exclusive RuneQuest short story by Justin Hill (his novel Viking Fire was a Times Book
    of The Year 2016)
  • A FATE accelerated scenario set in the world of Jerry Cornelius
  • Dirk the Dice talking bobbins about a PBM he played back in the day

 

PLUS – a special appearance of someone very special.

All this AND the collected works of @dailydwarf

It has been a real labour of love for The Armchair Adventurers and we are grateful to our contributors for making it happen.

Now, let’s start planning the next one!

    Terrible admission, I hadn’t read my paper copy – it’s safely in its envelope in a pile of games I need to sort out.
    So I read it this morning on my IPad – it’s fantastic! I love the attention to detail with the White Dwarf pastiche layout. The articles are equally great, and I never tire of that picture of you and Blythy aged ?14 (who is the third adventurer?).
    Definitely looking forward to the next one!

      Thanks Andrew! If you’ve still got your ‘zine sealed, there’s a ridiculous, home-made shrine bursting to get out.

      We were 16, on our way back from playing Call of Cthulhu in York. The other guy – it’s Eddy – with hair!
