This was one of the most requested things I saw on the forums and in the comments in the original Kickstarter! Awesome! I hope that it does extremely well and we can have something like the old Autoduel Quarterly for TFT!

Of note, Phil Read also has a fantasy 'zine up on Kickstarter (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...-gamemaster-1/) which looks like it will have a lot of good ideas for Fantasy roleplaying in it too. It's not TFT-specific, but it does seem to be system neutral, and that means it doesn't use a lot of space for system stats and things.

Thanks for the share!

And that's two stretch goals crushed!

Come on TFT-ers! Only about 500 folks have backed this so far -- we had something like 3400 backers for The Fantasy Trip kickstarter back last summer. This thing is very low expense, and promises a LOT of cool stuff in content. Furthermore, if this thing takes off, we might even get an actual 'zine out of it instead of just a one-shot! That's potentially tons of extra content for a $6 cost (for PRINT -- the PDF is only $3) per copy!

I can't imagine not popping for this, especially given how many folks were asking for something like this (like a cross between the old Interplay from Metagaming, and a version of The Spacegamer back in the day) last summer. Heck, I'm chronically short of money at this time of the year (the first half of California's property taxes are due shortly), and even though I'm backing the Pocket Box kickstarter (great deal on that too -- check it out), I've managed to scrape up enough for this and Phil's Delayed Blast Gamemaster 'zine!

Your support would be greatly appreciated!

I've posted over at RPGGeek. I think it's just a matter of getting the message out.

Does the "Zine + Adventures" pledge include all the stretch goals that game with the "Adventures" Kickstarter $30 pledge? Or only the hard bound copy & PDF?
