Crawl! fanzine at Gen Con!... (kinda)




Harley Stroh, writer and lead adventure coordinator for DCC RPG, has offered to lug a box full of Crawl! zines around Gen Con! So what does that mean? It means you can purchase copies from him or if you're daring, you can try and win a copy! All three current issues will be available, as will a few printed copies of Jeremy Deram's DCC RPG Reference Sheets (with the cover I threw together for it, hand stapled by me.)

Here's the deal. You have to find him. He'll be running several adventures during the Gen Con, and he'll also be found hanging out with Doug Kovaks at his booth in Artists Alley. At these spots, he'll "giving away" a few products, including a limited amount of Crawl! zines and T-shirts from Purple Sorcerer Games. And by "giving away", it means you'll have to battle in The Great Gen Con Dice Off! But you don't have to take any chances, he'll be selling copies of Crawl! for me. As a bonus, you can get all three available issues as a bundle, and get a copy of the Reference Sheets risk free.

UPDATE! COLLECTORS TAKE NOTE!

I failed to mention that as a special GEN CON bonus, all the copies are signed by me, and every copy is signed by some of my regular artists, editors & writers. It's worth noting that  #1 & #3 are signed by Brett Miller, the writer and artist for his iconic creation and Crawl! fanzine patron, Van den Danderclanden.

  1. What did you use to staple the Sheets? I haven't been able to find a deep enough stapler to get in the middle to staple the darn thing.

    1. The same tool that all most all zines are stapled with, ask/search for "Long Reach Stapler." Swingline & Stanley Bostitch make them. There are some generic ones out there for cheap, and really expensive ones with electronics and stuff. I suggest getting the basic Long Reach by Swingline or Stanley Bostitch. These are must for zine makers and homebrewers in general. You can even make your own calendars and repair old modules, etc.

    1. Sorry, I didn't make very many of the Ref Sheets. I've chosen to only give them as gifts, and I've sent them all to Gen Con.

  4. +1 for a way for those of us not attending to get signed copies!

    1. I had to figure out a way to make the Gen Con copies special, so I went out of my way to get them signed by a bunch of folks. I didn't keep any copies, so they're out in the wild now. I'd be happy to sign future copies, but you have to find me. I can't speak for the rest of the contributors, they're all over the world. I actually signed copies at a demo a ran in Burbank and at Strategicon in LA. Live in Southern California?
