Goodman Games has finally announcedthereby freeing those of us who were involved in it to loosen our tonguesthe very first print magazine for 4th Edition Dungeons & Dragons: Level Up! Click there to read a bit more.
The editor-in-chief is Aeryn Rudel, a prolific game designer whom I consider to be my go-to guy for 4E mechanics and balance (perhaps to his dismay) and a really nice guy!
The fact that Level Up is the ONLY print magazine for 4th Edition is a very big deal, and I hope that means there's a lot of interested readers picking it up. (Like you!? Maybe?) Ever since Wizards of the Coast discontinued the print versions of Dragon and Dungeon magazines, we've all missed being able to leaf through some good materials with our hands, as opposed to scrolling through a computer screen.
Oh, and Level Up is going to be $1.99 if you pick it up in an actual gaming store. You can't beat that price. If you subscribe, and want a PDF version, it's actually $4 per issue. Goodman Games is big on supporting gaming stores.
I'll talk more about my contribution to the magazine (which is going to start off quarterly) when a bit more has been said about it. Check it out! I'm stoked to get that first issue in my hands, and can't wait to check out the artwork.
