Coming Soon!

Welcome to the home of Crawl! A fanzine for Dungeon Crawl Classics Role Playing Game. What I hope to bring you is a little magazine full of goodness that you can add to your game.

Fanzines, or zines for short, go back to the very roots of the hobby. One could say that the very first RPG, Dungeons & Dragons, was very much a zine. They were homemade, self-published, and were the product of someone's imagination and love.

The same goes for this zine. It's goals are to collect and share ideas, tips and tricks, to make your game as awesome as it can be. What about websites & blogs, you say? They're nice and all, but nothing beats a physical book in your hand, no matter how small or low budget they seem. What also can't be beat is the approach-ability of a fan-made, independently produced...thing. It might not be as slick as the big guys, but that's not the point. It's about form and function. The point is to create an outlet for everyday creative minds to put out and share their ideas for, in my opinion, the best Role Playing Game out right now.

This project is very personal and I hope to have more submissions that I can possibly publish in my lifetime. This zine, like the DCC RPG is for Joseph Goodman, is a dream for me. And I hope you enjoy it. For now here's a sneak peek at a mock-up of the premier issue.
