Post Domesday X
So the mantle of Domesday editor has fallen on me for a few issues.

While issue IX will be out this summer it's not too early to start planning future issues.

I'm open to hearing ideas regarding content but in the meantime I'd like to propose issue X to tie into a Sword and Sorcery/Sandal/Planet theme.

Bonus if we could find material that could compliment the recent "Codex" books.

Some things I could be looking for are:

Classes- hoplite, legionaire, sorceror, tribal warrior, charioteer...

A S&S sandbox city- perhaps 100 or so locales similar to the old Judges Guild City-state

S&S quick encounters

Possibly a magic sub-system or paired down version of psionics like Rigon's adaptation of the 2e system that more closely aligns with the S&S genre (lower powered magic, blood magic, corruption rules)

Monsters (obviously)

A S&S pantheon (Cthulhic-type entities)

Rogues Gallery

An S&S equipment page

Upcomming issue ideas:
Issue XI- a Victorious/Supers tie in
Issue XII- an Amazing Adventures tie in
Issie XIII- a Star Siege tie in
Issue XIV- the Infernal/Celestial planes

Any other thoughts come to mind?



Btw, submissions should be (eventually) be sent to with a subject like that begins with "Domesday"

A couple thoughts.

Diversifying content. (thumbs up)

Dedicating the entire issue to one system, if I am understanding the proposal correctly. (not so thumbs up) Pretty much it has been a clutch of about half dozen or so contributors writing what content there is plus artists. Not all of those contributors may have the systems you want to fill the issue with. Maybe go with a focus of that system but reserve space for standard fare to avoid reducing the number of folks contributing and possibly alienating readers. Not everyone is going to care about each game system. I know there is only one or two issues there than I could contribute to if the issue is limited in content.

Still...good luck in the driver's seat and watch for giant fire breathing miniature space hamsters! :D

I should, finally, start running a Victorious game in about 4 weeks from now. Once I start finally running it I will get ideas for articles to submit.

I will be happy to help with the sandbox town locations too. We already have one started, IIRC.

Since its 20,000 I suggest "Captain Nemo" as his title. Beyond the obvious connection, he is one who sails on his own terms and ignores those he doesn't agree with...confident in his journey and goals.
