Written not just to inform but also entertain some sections are written in-game style - most specifically the New Creatures Section which is recounted by two brothers as the go on their adventures and report back to their masters.


Our inspiration goes back to the early years of White DwarfDragon and Dungeon magazines as well as other less well-known titles like Ares and Level-Up.

We aim to honour their tradition and deliver practical, useful and imaginative content to your inbox once a month, every month.

Issues are A4, a minimum of 52 pages long (from issue 7), and in a modern landscape format ideal for viewing on phones, tablets and laptop screens.

Subscribers have the option to submit content - and receive a free issue in return plus a writing credit and shout out!
