Kickstarter is running a focus on RPG zines in February of 2019. The KS ZineQuest is an opportunity to put out an old school style fanzine for people to enjoy. I am all for this, but it seems to me that we have an opportunity to do better here. We have an opportunity to marry old school feels with diverse ideas and this has me excited.
So I am officially launching my first Kickstarter in February to bring D.I.R.G.E.zine to life. D.I.R.G.E. (Diversity In Role-playing Game Experiences) is a project I have wanted to do for a long time now. I have envisioned a program that reaches out to creators and communities that are under-represented in role playing games. I believe this zine will do that. Depending on how successful it is, this could be a yearly zine or perhaps something that happened more often. For now we are going to focus on doing one very cool rpg zine.
I will provide a KS preview soon, once some of the details are nailed down. I think delivery will take place in 2019.
So, how can you help? How can you contribute to making D.I.R.G.E. zine a success?
Support the Kickstarter when it launches in February of 2019
Provide Content. We are open to submissions from creators of all stripes, but especially those of under-represented groups. The content should be focused on role playing games but can be any of the various sub-genres: science fiction; fantasy; urban fantasy; Cyberpunk & the Other Punks; and everything in between. If you can turn into something role playing related, more power to ya.
We are looking for art, short (1-3 page) adventures, 500 to 1000 word opinion pieces and articles related to rpgs. You will paid (assuming the KS funds) and also be provided with a physical copy of the zine. Those details are available when you contact us.
There will be a dedicated form, but for now use the Feedback form or email me directly (firstname.lastname@example.org)
