I just picked up a copy of an Australian gaming magazine called Drow, Vol 1, No. 1 from December 1992. I have seen this on Ebay a few times - but have never seen any other issue? Does anyone know anything about this magazine? How many were published etc?

Ah . I looked on Brette's site but didn't think to look under Creative Aspects. Strange how there was only one issue - it really is a very well produced magazine.

If it was well produced, then it probably needed to sell a lot of issues to break even.  If financed by Daddy, I'm guessing Daddy didn't want to loose any more money .

I wish my Daddy would finance an RPG concept magazine for me. Despite me being 40 and he being 65, he stills feels uneasy and awkward about my obsession with RPGS!!!  :)

It seems that Italy and Australia have a lot in common about gaming magazines, their sky high mortality rate for example  :cry:  (I have in the collection at least two Italian magazines that never went beyond issue zero...  8O ). Sigh...
