Tomorrow we launch our Kickstarter to make Maximum HP a reality! We’re starting with the “dwarfhome” issue.
In our inaugural issue, we explore the dwarven community of Dwarfhome mountain in Artera. We chose to focus on dwarves this issue because there are so many possible directions to go with them rather than presenting them as just dour short people with Scottish accents. Though we focus on Dwarfhome, the information and quest provided can be inserted into any dwarven society to bring life to your old school campaigns.
We are at 31-32 pages before ads for issue #001. It will be perfect bound with a full color card stock cover.
You are about to become part of the first issue of Maximum HP, a zine for all the gamers and GMs who play 1E and its clones. What follows in this and upcoming issues of Maximum HP are articles, notes, tips, tricks, traps, and treasure for your 1E gaming table.
To keep the zines fresh and exciting, we have liberated ourselves from a production deadline to allow us to channel maximize creativity into each issue. Content will be nurtured, not rushed, and will be chosen as inspiration strikes or from where we see a need at our own tables. The majority of these publications are intended for GMs, but players may also find much of the content interesting and, hopefully, inspiring. We do suggest that players not read the adventure section if their GM intends to run the adventure. It is our intent to share the Fail Squad Games style with other old school gamers to enrich their gaming experience.
The zine format will present small, easy to digest articles firmly rooted in the spirit of the older edition games. Although the content may be informal, we want the physical product and internal presentation to be the best we can deliver for the cost. As is always the case for Fail Squad Games, we offer rousing content for your tabletop roleplaying games, never hard and fast rules. So grab your dice good adventurer, grab your books good GMs, and get ready for Maximum HP!! From here we catalyze your creativity with our world of imagination, ideas, and quests.
