GROGZINE’20 – call for submissions

Another GROGZINE, another magnificent Russ Nicolson cover creation!

The next GROGZINE which will be published in time for virtual GROGMEET next year.

I’m looking for submissions from the GROGSQUAD.

This time I want to make a bit different.

Previous GROGZINEs have featured articles and useable content like scenarios and reviews that were a homage to White Dwarf, Imagine and 80s ‘zines.

This time, I want to create a ‘peoples’ history of RPGs’, looking back at some of your home-brew creations from back in the day.

What were the worlds you created?

Who were your favourite characters?

What happened in your epic campaigns?

What were the conventions that you attended?

Who were you playing with and how did you get together?

I’m looking for articles, features, scenarios based on the ideas above: please let me know if you want to be part of the project.

It will have all the same illustrations and look and feel, but this time it’s all about your experiences. What about retro-fitting your favourite characters from back in the day to bring them into the 21st century? Or redesigning your favourite scenario to make it playable now? Or sharing the photo-scrapbook of your favourite session?

If you have an idea, or want to crawl up into the loft to discover your lost treasures, then contact me at the usual address: Dirk The Dice At Gmail dot com.

I would like to finalise content before the end of January 2020, so please contact me as soon as possible to discuss your idea.

Join us in a collective memoire of the 70s, 80s and 90s heyday of RPGs!

  1. I went digging through my old files and found an old adventure, complete with map in ascii code (so it could be shared through the internet) from about 1983. The map itself is an artifact, but I could include an updated version of the adventure if you like. It was for a very early version of my Journeyman system, which was originally an outgrowth of RQ2 and COC. It was an investigation of the abandoned castle of Caernoccoc, a wizard.

  2. Hi there

    I’m not sure whether this is the right medium to connect to you on, but I couldn’t find an email address. I’ll have been a big fan of the podcast for a while and am working my way through the episodes. I’m currently in the process of setting up a website called The Unreality Store to sell classic comics and RPG’s which should hopefully launch around May. As part of the added content I’m putting down some Blog ideas and one that I wanted to write was about Tunnels and Trolls. I’ve been a big fan of the game for over 30 years (and even published a fanzine called Pandemonium back in my teens which had a lot of T&T content). I particularly liked your episode on T&T and wondered whether you would be happy for me to include a link to your website or podcast in the Blog notes?

    All the best!
