Joethelawyer's Not-So-Wondrous Imaginings

By Joethelawyer
Hi everyone! I'll be sharing my thoughts about all things Dungeons and Dragons related. I'm an old school OSR D&D gamer who finds himself running three different face-to-face D&D 5e games. Go figure. :)

My First Interview! Tim and Ivy Shorts Join Me For a Wide-Ranging Discussion!

A Retro-Review/Tribute to Christian Walker's Loviatar Zine, Wherein I Nominate Him For Patron Saint of All OSR Zines
This was the Zine that I believe started off the big Zine craze in 2011, 2012, 2013.  Since there seems to be a resurgence of interest in Zines now, due mostly to that big Kickstarter thing, I thing it's important to understand some great underlying principles that Christian explained he was trying to adhere to when publishing this Zine.  He sets out an ethos, a way of going about it, that we could all learn from.  Here's to Christian, Patron Saint of OSR Zines.
