(ATUALIZAÇÃO da atualização)


Palavras de Tim Kask, via Facebook:


Tim Kask Here's a snippet from our ad prospectus.....
so now you all the official word there is at this time.

Gygax is a gaming magazine for new and old
players alike.


We are looking forward to the games of tomorrow
and today, while preserving the traditions and history
that got us where we are now.

Our articles and features cover current independent
and major publisher games such as Pathfinder,
Savage Worlds, The One Ring, Shadowrun,
Godlike, Labyrinth Lord, Marvel Heroic Roleplaying,
Warhammer 40k Roleplay, Traveller, and others,
as well as classic out-of-print games with a modern
following, like AD&D, Top Secret, and Gamma
World.

Our features include comics by Phil Foglio (What’s
New With Phil and Dixie), Jim Wampler (Marvin
the Mage), and Rich Burlew (Order of the Stick).
Contributors include Jim Ward, Cory Doctorow,
James Carpio, Ethan Gilsdorf, Dennis Sustare, and
many more.

Publishing quarterly in print as well as PDF and iPad
editions, we hope each issue of Gygax will be an
anticipated and treasured addition to any gamer’s
library.


Bom, com isso vemos que será não apenas uma revista de D&D, como poderiamos pensar a principio, mas uma revista de vários sistemas. O fato de ter material para sistemas "fora de catálogo" é muito bom, e podemos aguardar novidades em breve.

Confesso que esperava algo apenas para o D&D pré-3x, mas da maneira que está, sinto que já é interessante para mais pessoas (afinal, a coisa tem que ser viável financeiramente, certo?).

Não acho legal postar duas vezes no mesmo dia, mas essa noticia merece.

A Gygax Magazine já teve o "staff" revelado, e como eu previa, são nomes de peso. Vejam as palavras do editor da revista no fórum do ENWorld:


"Hi guys, this is Jayson. I'm the editor for Gygax Magazine.

Gygax Magazine is myself, Ernie Gygax, Luke Gygax, Tim Kask, James Carpio, and Jim Wampler. Our first issue is out in December; since it's not finished yet, we've been pretty quiet about things until it's ready.

Just to address some of the questions, I thought it was best that I leave a reply. We do own the trademark for TSR, and have since December of 2011. We are a new company, not the old TSR, as they were purchased by Wizards in the '90s. The trademark was abandoned about nine years ago, and we registered it in 2011. 

We decided the best thing to release first as TSR was a gaming magazine, because we wanted a way to bridge the traditions of the old guard with the awesome new games that are out today."

Essa revista conta então não apenas com dois Gygax, "Tenser" e "Melf", como Tim Kask, Jim Ward, Phil Foglio, Len Lakofka, James Carpio e Jim Wampler!

Conforme eu souber mais, posto aqui!
