It's me BTW. :mrgreen:


Well?

He is aware of this thread. In true Troll fashion, I suspect he'll address it within the next 3-4 months.

That would be awfully fast.

Troll time is equal to one day TT for every three years real time.

Aren't the Troll Lords immortal anyway? If that's the case isn't time meaningless?

In the mean time the Trolls could do a hardback reprint of past issues similar to what Fight On! has done in the past. It would more than likely be two or three books but I think more than one of us would jump on that. It could also help fund the magazine's restart.

Wait - the Crusader is NOT in Limbo. Limbo is NOT in Little Rock, Arkansas.

It's in Johnson, Arkansas.

I agree with the sentiments though having been a subscriber and only receiving one issue in 2011 and maybe two issues the previous year, I think my subscription has got to be still good for a few years to come at this pace. ;)

I like the Crusader and appreciate finally receiving an issue (always a few weeks after everyone else gets it in the States). However, I think the format needs to be changed. Instead of trying to do a regular publication ... be it monthly or once every 4 months or just whenever they decide to do one, change it around.

Release just *one* journal per year. Beef up the page count a tad and put in some optional stuff people can use. Instead of releasing the 0.99 cent PDF adventure, put in the Crusader Journal. Continue to accept the submissions which will start flowing again if people start talking and getting excited about the journal. Charge a heftier price for the journal but cut down on some of the adverts (aside from TLG's core adverts) and focus on some interesting content that won't make into a regular product. For existing subscribers, consider what's left over in their subscription plan and take what's 'left' and enroll them into the new journal model (even it it means fewer journals than magazines since the journal will have more content anyway).

I don't typically keep the magazines, I hold on to them for a time and then part with them. I do keep all the PDF's though. However, I'd be happy to put these annuals on the shelf and I think it could work.

In the meantime, I'll echo what Josh had to say and just repeat -- Domesday.

The next one will be out before the end of this month so it's something. Hopefully the rest of the community will like it and we'll be able to grow some interest all around for both this and the Crusader once more.

I love this idea! Quarterly, Bi-yearly or yearly annual with all this good stuff would be great!

Why don't all the "wanters" and "contributors" start a page and start make submission wants then writers fill it, by the time the Trolls have free time to start pulling together the next issue, they will already have several submission to choose from that may have already been fairly well edited?

Just a thought why wait, start doing it now.

Because the Trolls already have submissions. I'm guessing the hold-up is they are trying to get in front of their Kickstarters, planning of future Kickstarters and getting their ducks all aligned before adding another project. Plus, Steve contributes heavily to The Crusader and, for now, his time is needed elsewhere. The sad fact is The Crusader is not a big money maker so probably gets bumped down the schedule frequently. But, until TLG gets caught up and things start to smooth out I'm guessing we'll just have to wait.

Just to put things in perspective, Mongoose discontinued Signs & Portents some time back. In their case, the stated reason boiled down to money. They gave away too much in Signs & Portents for free and in this day and age, RPG publishers need every dime they can get.

A magazine is the last thing TLG should worry about.

I'm hearing its dead or nearly so. Its always last on the list, rightfully so... that said, these boards are the next best thing, but the format is not that great. could not the Knights or a team from this group self publish, always leaving open for the Trolls to add as they see fit or "veto" as they see fit, but allow this crew to self publish a pdf each can down load and print as wanted. A rolling editorial staff, each taking turns with some basic ground rules... Start simple, give it a try.

Again, just a thought. Cost could be donations to TLG and an honorarium to the acting editor?

Just spit balling here..

The Domesday Book is part of the revival of the C&CS/KotC. However, we are not to the point of even looking at it. One thing I would suggest is a Wiki to contain articles and material for the game.
