The Savage AfterWorld As A 1984 Zine

The newest meme racing through the RPG blogging universe is to imagine what your blog would look like if it had originally been created as a paper 'zine back in the 1980s. Several blogs have posted their decidedly low-tech concepts, so I thought I'd jump on in. It was a fairly easy matter, as I actually had an RPG 'zine back in 1984 named "AQ - Adventurer's Quarterly." I think I put out one or two, distributed free at the local game store. Anyway, here is what TSAW would look like if created in the same manner as AQ:


  1. I love your 80's cover. I am fortunate enough to have a book store nearby that still sells independent and home brew stuff. I regularly buy homebrew games there My personal favorite being "Orcs in the 'Hood."

    Great blog, keep up the good work. I've been wanting to get into a Cyberpunk or Dystopian game for a while now, it seems like a great genre.

  2. Oh, that is made of pure win. I would've bought that right off the mimeograph, dampness be damned.

    Where did you find that skull graphic? I want to add it to my archives.

  3. Nicely done. I'm afraid I just couldn't pull one together for I See Lead People.

  4. I love this idea! And I agree with Justin on the mimeograph. I only wish I had a manual type writer to make my own!
