[GP 1] About Grim Portents

I’m reposting the entire issue 1 of Grim Portents on the blog.

This is the first issue of Grim Portents, a fan zine for the Dungeon World tabletop roleplaying game. It was edited by Chris Sakkas and released in April 2013.

Release 1. For updates and new issues, see Living Libre.

Thank you so much to the authors who contributed articles: Adam Koebel, Mike Riverso, Kasper Brohus Allerslev, Johnstone Metzger, Giovanni Lanza, John Ryan, Scott Velez, Marshall Miller, Parker D Hicks, Jeremy Friesan, Jeremy Strandberg, Alexander Davis, At the Table Games, Kingston Cassidy, David Guyll, Matthew Gagan, Bill White and Chris Bennett.

Many of these contributors also proofread and edited the contributions of others.

Thank you also to the artists who contributed illustrations: Michael Wight, Giovanni Lanza and Nate Marcel.

This issue also uses pre-existing artworks from Open Game Art, Prismatic Art, Flickr and Wikimedia Commons. For a more detailed attribution of artworks, see the last page of this zine.

The cover was created by Jonathan Walton of Corvid Sun.

The layout template was designed by Raoni Monteiro. The theme of this issue, The Dead of Winter, was suggested by Jeremy Friesen of Take on Rules.
