Fight On! Issue 8 Available

Issue #8 of Fight On! is now available in both print and PDF form, marking two years since the first issue appeared, which is a pretty remarkable thing, given that it's almost entirely produced by amateurs. As usual, the latest issue is jam-packed with some excellent material, including a terrific interview with cover artist (and issue dedicatee) Erol Otus by Jeff Rients. The interview contains a lot of great questions and interesting responses, including one of particular interest to our little echo chamber:
JR: Do you play any role-playing games now?

EO: I've been playing in a 1st edition AD&D campaign ongoing now for about 6 years, we only play about 6-8 times a year though. I've got two characters, a Magic-User and Cleric, both 9th level. It appears now that Emoglorgon is really Demogorgon and may well be enslaved by an unknown figure (seen only in visions while dead) who is behind the upheaval, war, and foul corruption of nature spreading across the lands. Last year I started DMing a 4e game when it came out. We've only played it a few times so far. It is kind of strange, everyone healing themselves, so many powers for 1st levelers. Might end up converting this back to 1e, but we will give it a few more tries.
Make of that what you will.

Congratulations to Calithena on another job well done.

  1. Thanks for the shout out, James! I think there's a lot of stuff you'd enjoy in this one - Ramsey's "Howling Emptiness" might be right up your alley, for instance. Fight On!

  4. Ordered my print copy yesterday...I would get the PDF, but I like the feel of having the hardcopy in my hands. I am anxious to see whats in it. From all indications it looks like it will be good.

    Good to know some never let the faith. Until, I came here Toronto seemed a very lonely place.

    Don't waste another moment, EO. Make that switch back to the good stuff, and you won't have to scratch yer head so much!
