Zines to Love

 Zinequest 3 is upon us and several of blogging and gaming compatriots have some entries for your enjoyment:

GRIDSHOCK 20XX is the long-awaited (at least by me) totally 80s, post-apocalyptic superhero game by Paul Vermeren. GRIDSHOCK is a great concept, imminently gameable and fairly original (in its synthesis of its influences), and the art and design look gorgeous. 

The Many Crypts of Lady Ingrade by Tim Shorts is an old school adventure with art by Jason Sholtis. I did the cover design for this one. Tim's GM Games really cranks out really table-ready, classic-gaming stuff, and I expect this one to be no different.

Through Ultan's Door #3 will reveal more of Ben Laurence's dreamlands-type fantasy setting. It's already busted is initial goal and blazed through it's stretch goals, but there's still time to jump in. The previous issues are both great physical artifacts and chock full of content.

Greetings Trey! Thanks for the tip on Grid Shock. I've already gone in on the other two zines. They all look fantastic! I need to get back on the zine making thing, but am waiting for the Zinequest frenzy to die down. Perhaps something later in March or April. Cheers!

Dang, I almost missed the new Ultan's Door, this is the first I've seen it mentioned anywhere. Hard to keep up with the flood this year, so much coming out.
