Based on the turnout of articles for the webzine, I believe that I will be increasing distribution to 6 times a year (every other month) instead of 4 times a year.

I believe that will build the momentum and keep greater interest for The Hall of Fire.

The new release date for Issue 2 will be the last weekend of November.

Nice to see HOF back again. I remember the Decipher days well. May have to dust off some of my old submissions and see if I can revise them to fit TOR.

Will the new HOF also support the 5e version of the game?

I believe that Doug has said 'yes' to that, although I don't think it will be the main thrust of the 'zine. I'm developing an optional Heroic Culture that will include sections for both TOR and AiMe.

Hey Jim! Long time.

Yea, I will be including AiMe stuff in the zine, although I will not focus on that content myself. I bought the LM Guide and PH, but I have not spent much time on that system. Instead, our group has been playing TOR for the last two and a half years.

I am also making the webzine bi-monthly, so as to keep the release stress down some.

I like this idea, Otaku! Maybe in my current adventure write-up, I will include options for both, too.

I finished my first draft of my Optional Heroic Culture: Wild Men of Enedwaith for both TOR and AiMe, and have sent it off to HOF via email attachment.

Now that I've sent if off, I feel I can announce that I've drafted a new article for HOF. This one is an Optional Heroic Culture for TOR and AiMe: Elves of the Grey Havens.

My greatest hesitation in writing this was deciding whether or not to make them an Advanced Culture. Despite the Eldar of Mithlond consisting of a mixture of High Elves and Sindar from Beleriand, I opted to make them a normal Culture. If someone else thinks that they should instead be an Advanced Culture, I look forward to seeing your own piece on the subject.

Was that an ‘I’ll see you in the playground’ moment there OS? :lol:

I look forward to reading both your Heroic Culture articles.
