TrollsZine Issue 2

TrollsZine Issue 2 Issue 2 of TrollsZine, the new Tunnels & Trolls magazine has been recently released on Lulu. The free magazine is available at Lulu and this issue not only features a full-color cover but it’s also a whopping 92 pages long!

The content is definitely top-notch and there’s a lot of stuff that any fan of T&T can put to good use, but I am not too fond of the layout. I would have preferred a more magazine-like look. But perhaps they are trying to retain that old-school feel in layout, too.

But aside from that minor issue, I very much enjoyed leafing through the new issue of TrollsZine. As soon as I have time, I will make sure I read it from cover to cover. I can wholeheartedly recommend the magazine to all fans of T&T in particular and Old School Gaming in General. It’s definitely worth your time!

One thought on “TrollsZine Issue 2”

  1. Stargazer, the people doing TrollsZine have zero experience with producing magazines. Thus, what they do is a simple conglomeration of the material available to be published. It's not that they're trying to be Old School–it's just that T & T and its spinoffs were Old School before Old School was invented. However, for any T & T player or fan, TrollsZine does contain a ton of good material and more will be coming in the future.
