[Review] Beholder Magazine #4 (OD&D); Upward

Another issue of Beholder magazine as we gear up for a long donation. No Artpunk 2 is on the way (cover coming soon). This one is overal very strong, and I agree with the editor’s that it is the best one thus far.

[Review] Dungeoneer 9 – Morkendaine (OD&D 3PP); Archeotech

It’s initial status as OSR all-star brand and vehicle for wild abandon, the Vertigo Comics of the OSR, only with even more tiddies and rape, has passed for the foreseeable future.
