Welcome, DanZ.



Be sure to check out the thread on most memorable D&D moments.  It would be interesting to hear how that woodgrain set was used! :D

I can't believe it! 8O Are you Francesco Rivoira? The one that followed the old staff after the first five (six?) issues of Rune magazine?

Yes Ciro, this is a little world after all  :P

The Rune magazine went bust as we were preparing a very cool number 13 - about demons. I myself designed the cover - and it's still in electronic format on my Mac.

Sadly, as our audience was located in Italy, the mags are all in Italian. The interesting part is that it has been the first indipendent italian magazine - not connected or tied with the hobby industry in any way except for the ad pages. It was really a fan-magazine, but professionally executed and printed. Ciro-Sotterraneo has worked on its first six issues, then after a controversial number 7, I took the reins of the mag from its previous publisher, and published other six issues.

If someone here is interested, I could part from some numbers of it - with great difficulty of course. LOL :lol:

I just wish to point out that I didn't simply 'work on' the first six issues, I was the editor  :D . I am really pleased when people here write to me and tell me how fondly remember the magazine!

Sorry Ciro, you're right. The publisher was Sintagma, and you were what or english speaking friends call the editor-in-chief (head honcho, high mogul, resident evil wizard and such...)  :lol:

What was so controversial about issue #7? Was the theme 'Sex and D&D' or similar? Being an Italian mag I can't imagine that would have got the editor into hot water...



Regards

Well, no Sex and D&D, but it was a very slim issue - half the others in pages - and it had two comic stories inside. Lots of the D&D people were sadly disappointed - and some instead said they were a good idea - the comics were made to illustrate the basics of D&D, with all the stats, characters and such.

It was the last of the line for the old publisher, and he didn't want to spend much on it, I guess - then I and my other friends came and published from number 8 to 12.

Continuing with the comics, but keeping a good deal of adventures as well - and finely illustrated ones, too.

Hi, I'm one of the newbies. Just joined very recently. I've known about The Acaeum for quite a long time, but never visited the forums.



Recently, though, I caught a nostalgia bug and decided to look up some old Judges Guild stuff. Now I'm hooked! Dang it. As if the new gaming stuff wasn't enough of a drain on my wallet!



(oh, and I'm old too.)

We're all oldies but goldies here I'm afraid, Diablo... and that RPG addiction sure is a bad thing to have. Luckily here we can get some fix for it  :lol:

Introduction time.

Names Jeff.
I am a 30 year old gamer, got into the hobby when I was a well aged 12.  I learned the game from, of all people, a Catholic priest (thank you Father Dennis o'Donnel).

I basically collect anything RPG, my main focus now is the early days for the hobby, but I don't stick to just TSR or just DnD (which has the effect of spreading my money a little thin).


Prize of my collection(as of Feb 2005)...it's a toss up between my ratty Mechanoid Invasion set, The OCE box and my copy of Metamorphasis Alpha.

Yay for the old guys! I started gaming in '79 right after graduating from high school.

Yeah, for whatever reason, the JG stuff really pushes the ol' nostalgia button. I remember going into the nearby game and hobby store and just staring at all the RPG stuff. D&D, T&T, JG, C&S, Traveller, etc. My friend worked at the store, so I just went there and hung out all the time, and of course, spent all sorts of money.



The JG stuff really sticks out in my mind and now I wanna grab up as much as I can. :)

i will always like the JG stuff more than anything else. just used to like the "rough" way the items used to look.



i think some of the material in their stuff stands up there amongst the best RPG stuff about imo.

I have some. Dark Tower, the Maltese Clue, all the Island, Castle, Village, Temple supplements, War Cry and Battle lust and The first fantasy campaign by Arneson. All in pristine condition. Sure the "feel" of the material was rough, but looks like it's more durable than the TSR counterparts.



Sorry this is off topic, but sometimes I love to brag LMAO
