It is here, dear reader, The RPG Zine for Kids Who Read Good And Do Other Stuff. I called it PERIL though, and I painted in it spooky letters to put on top of the cover art. Yes, I used some paint to do something I could have done fine with a marker, font, or leaky octopus. But it is about the process, isn’t it? More on the process in a later paragraph. You may notice also, dear reader, that I gave it a number. 00. This is a good number to choose if you plan to do a 01, but no one will notice if you don’t. I also did not paint a spooky 00 to go on this one (but if I did, the zeros would have super evil lines crossing them diagonally so you would know they were a zero and not an o). That way if there is never a 01, no one will notice. It doesn’t lock me into doing spooky numbers all the time either, because numbers only look spooky in red and should look elegant otherwise. It has just short of enough content to get kids inspired. Some advanced S&B rules, die drop tables, monsters, a dungeon, and whatnot. It is written more like an activity book than a zine, really.
So no promise on ever having a PERIL 01, but here is PERIL 00. But before you click your grubby mouse all over this pristine new thing, I would like to tell you about how this zine almost didn’t happen. You may have to click a read more button to read this story.
