[dragwars] New Magazine
- Are you interested in receiving a free role-playing games magazine with a

that nobody makes any money, so we don't pay for contributions. Of course,

I'd love to see role-playing articles and scenarios (not fiction) of any
length, and art work - all bearing in mind the comments about what Annwn is
likely to be. Please email them to me in a PC-friendly format.
Any questions, do write. This should be a lot of fun.
