A number of people have brought up Hermes Portal recently, and noted that they have material that they would like to see published, either online or in a fan magazine.
I am setting up an Ars Magica fan magazine, following the closure of Hermes Portal. Now that ArM5 is established, it is important that it receive fan support, both from Ars authors and specifically fans.
A great number of current Ars authors got their break in Hermes Portal (not to mention Red Cap and Mythic Perspectives). Hopefully this zine will likewise help.
The zine will be similar to Hermes Portal - online, pdf issues, produced (hopefully) every quarter.
If you are interested in contributing in any way, please email me at:
Great initiative Alex! I would love to help out but I just can't see any spare room in the calendar in the months to come. If the powers that be allow me some slack come summer, I'll return to you. Untill then I'll be happy to concur with Yair's interest in buying.
Not having subscribed to any of the previous, since I wasn't playing the game back then, I have no preconceptions. So, for the newbies amongst us, please expand a bit on what you are looking to publish, it's expected utility (primarily storyguides, or player info and hints, history nuts, et cetera), and openness to contribution.
The Ars Magazine would be for both story guides and players. It would be written by fans, for fans, so its content is contributor driven.
It is based on the previous Ars fan zines, most recently Hermes Portal. Articles in the past have included new mysteries, spells, virtues, adventures, characters, discussions, new or altered rules, short stories, and more
