There are surprisingly many people who don't know there is a third edition of the excellent Over the Edge RPG. So it is not-so-surprising that there are just a small bunch of cool people who happen to know, that the 3rd edition Over the Edge is supported by a fanzine.
Therefore I figured out it would be a good idea to have a thread about the magazine that has supporting material for Over the Edge the 3rd Edition. So, here we go.
Over the Edge RPG, the 3rd Edition has its fan magazine full of in-game information, the latest and weirdest rumors on Al Amarja, faces and places of Amarja, and many kinds of other usable material. Material that you can use with any edition of the Over the Edge RPG. Especially with the third edition.
The fanzine is minimalisticly called Take the Edge. It is available in digital form through DriveThruRPGs. The magazine is prized as a Pay What You Want product!
There's more info available about Take the Edge magazine from the blog of the magazine's Primus Motor. Check out the links down below
Welcome to the Edge to Take the Edge! And welcome to talk about the fanzine in this thread.
Nice seeing it is happening something around the game, I haven't seen much since the Kickstarter – for better or worse. I browsed the preview of the first-and-half issue and I don't know if it is included in any excluded pages, but a page of fresh Little Scratches pulled from Al Amarja Today would be enlightening!
Out of curiosity, how many have you sold? (I am a very bad lurking burger and have not had the courage yet to approach the pusher of this ... government approved information material.)
Hello, You all Beautiful fellow citizens of Al Amarja!

Once again, Take the Edge brings you new material to use with your Over the Edge RPG, the 3rd Edition. Issue 4.2 brings you new characters and places to use in your games.

Especially for the new gamers or people new to the 3rd edition setting, this material is very usable content.
