I think some of the most interesting D&D items came from the UK. Here is a list that I put together:



White Dwarf 1-99, Best of Scenarios 1-3, Best of Articles 1,2

Imagine 1-30, Special

Polyhedron UK 1-8

D&D Players Association News 1-12

D&D Players Association Broadsheet 1-6

TORTURED SOULS! 1-12

Game Master Publications 1-5

Adventurer 1-11?

Fiend Folio

UK1-7 modules

ST1

Starstone

First Quest Album (or cassette; CD?)

Complete Dungeon Master boxed sets 1-4

D&D Players Association Broadsheet 1-6

Games Workshop printed modules and game books

TSR UK printed modules and game books

TSR UK Dragon magazines



Anybody else care for the "look and feel" of the UK D&D? Am I missing anything in the list?

And how about all those fanzines from the 80's, such as Dragonlords, Troll Crusher, the Beholder and so many others.  I'm happy to say that I have a couple boxes full of them and they are fun reads with an ample display of that wry English humor/humour.

Hi All,



I have to admit to being a fan of the UK-produced stuff (but then I'm in the UK so thats not a big surprise :)  ).



Until recently, we've always had a hard-working RPGA community. Unfortunately, thats fallen by the wayside recently.



Even now, I think Mongoose are the biggest publishers of D20 material.



Cheers,

Malcolm

I'd add the following (all info from respective Acaeum listings):



U1, U2, U3 (Saltmarsh series)

B10, I8, X8 - each of these has the UK flag on the cover.

- The Beast Entz boxed modules (for D&D and Runequest)

- Various indie productions, eg

 - No Honour in Sathporte.

I like the fanzines. They are full of new monsters, unbiased opinions and reviews, and most contain nice short adventures.



Go COLTS!!!!

*g*. Just pulled this thread from the archive. (Lots of interesting reading down there, still...).

Hey, you forgot the "Fighting Wheel"!
*lol...*.

More seriously, however, I strongly back the feeling that the UK fanzines were a key part of the UK D&D "experience" for many people (especially through to the mid/late 80s for me).
As an aside on that, Brian Misiaszek regularly updates a highly useful list of past/recent UK zines on <uk.games.roleplay>, which has just been topped up to 330 titles (not all D&D-related).
Google Groups

Having chatted with him, there's been more than one person interested in expanding this into a website with cover scans, contents and further details. Of course, getting the ball rolling on such a collaborative effort would be "fun"... (*tips hat to <The Acaeum> staff/contributors again*; only guessing at how much effort it took to get /this/ site as good/content-rich as it is!).

I have started to make a half arsed attempt at this... just bought a web site the other day as well, so all I need is the motivation to do it;)

Any good Australian material?

Yes!

Australian Realms magazine had a 30 issue run, and reminds me of Imagine magazine.  They even published material for Dark Sun, Al-Qadim, Spelljammer and FR before they got a cease and desist order.  There is also a module whose name escapes me at the moment.

Ariel Archives-

gives a pretty comprehensive list, there are a few additions that I will be makeing, some of the con modules are/ are set to be published in d20 format... there are other things not related to D&D that you might find interesting like MOB's fake Runequest zine "Gorp #2" etc... australia was a bit light on zines, there were a couple for traveller not listed yet on the list.. etc

Aussie realms put out 1 generic fantasy sup Wair-Rae:Unae Book 1... any q's just email/pm me/post here...

*g*.

Does that mean you've just saved me the effort of making the first move?

Thank you for mentioning your plans, Brette.

Still needs a serious combined effort for data collection, I suspect, but would be good to get some framework up-and-running for RPG zines (UK and otherwise (outwith U.S.?), no?).
Nothing fancy... just "up-and-running".

Had a quick dig around here and I'm probably down to well under 100 UK zines (largely taken up by complete run of "The Beholder" and suchlike), having given away/"lost"/etc. a fair number.
Will probably take a week or two to fill in what gaps I can in Brian Misiaszek's newsgroup list, first, but should be able to do scans, etc., later... and hopefully others might be able to join in, too, if that's workable :)

(Don't really need to worry about rarity categories: they're virtually all "4s and 5s". *vbeg*).

Best wishes. David.
