Latest Dark Times Fanzine News

Post by Morthrai » Mon Apr 10, 2017 10:29 am

Hi all, I have been more active plugging Dark Times on the social media channels than on these forums. As I know there are people here who don't do Facebook, Google Plus and/or Twitter it's only right and proper that I keep you all in touch 8)

Submissions so far have been relatively scarce so please send us anything you might have. We literally can't do this without your input! Please also note that at the moment we don't have permission for Dark Conspiracy, but that may be down to a simple miscommunication on my part rather than anything else.

We DO have publisher permission to cover the following systems - plenty of choice here, so get creating :twisted:

Atlas Games - Feng Shui 1&2, Over The Edge, Unknown Armies all editions
Atramentis Games - Nightmares of the Dead Dreamers
Cakebread & Walton - Dark Streets, Clockwork & Cthulhu
Chaosium - Call of Cthulhu all editions
Delta Green all editions
Eden Studios - All Flesh Must Be Eaten, Army of Darkness, Conspiracy X, Witchcraft
Just Crunch - The Cthulhu Hack
Little Fears & Little Fears Nightmare Edition
Pelgrane Press - GUMSHOE system (Esoterrorists, Fear Itself, Night's Black Agents, Trail of Cthulhu)
Popcorn Press - D6xD6 RPG, D13 RPG, Wolfman's Curse card game
Purple Duck Games - 4Saken
Sine Nomine Publishing - Silent Legions

Generic is good too, and material for some of the other games apart from DC would also be very welcome :D

Balancing real life issues with learning how to use unfamiliar software is causing delays in getting the pilot issue together. We also still need submissions, and will continue to need them going forward. Stick with us, and please spread the word everyone! :D

Okay, here's an update. Getting a new free publication off the ground turns out to be a lot of work, especially when I have to do most of it myself. I promise I AM still plugging away at Dark Times Fanzine! However, as always, we need more horror-conspiracy-weirdness gaming submissions so please consider sending something in. At the moment there's more Dark Conspiracy stuff on the pile than anything else, so material for the other games in our remit is VERY welcome :)

August Update: apologies for the delay but I am still hacking away at the thing! With one thing and another in real life, plus still not knowing how to get the best out of the new (to me) software it's taking much longer than I thought it would. Just hope people think it was worth waiting for when I do get it out there!
