AGP ANNOUNCES LAUNCH OF ADVENTURE GAMES JOURNALâ„¢ PRINT MAGAZINE
      
IOLA, WI -- September 5, 2007 — Adventure Games Publishing, publishers of Wilderlands of High Adventureâ„¢ products for the Castles & Crusades® role-playing game, is pleased to announce the October 2007 launch of a new bi-monthly print gaming magazine, Adventure Games Journal. Adventure Games Journal is dedicated to providing players and judges of role-playing games extensive materials to assist in game play, including new monsters and treasures, organizations, races, classes, locations, adventures, and other game elements to enhance and expand the role-playing game experience.

"Adventure Games Journal is all about the cool, fun stuff that players and judges want to bring to the table," said James Mishler, President of Adventure Games Publishing and Publisher of Adventure Games Journal. "The models I used to build the Adventure Games Journal format were all from classic magazines and fanzines, which were chock-full of new and unique elements to add to your game. There's no room for whining about ‘post-modern game theory' in the pages of Adventure Games Journal. It's all about playing games and having fun."

Subscribers receive a 32-page Campaign Installment with each issue. Each Campaign Installment focuses in detail on a region, city, town, or adventure area of the Wilderlands of High Adventure. Future Campaign Installments may include material for other worlds and even other role-playing game systems. Though Adventure Games Journal focuses on the Wilderlands of High Adventure and Castles & Crusades, Adventure Games Publishing plans to include coverage of other role-playing games both in Adventure Games Journal and in Campaign Installments. The first issue of Adventure Games Journal is scheduled for release in October 2007, with subsequent issues to follow every other month thereafter.

The first issue of Adventure Games Journal includes a guide to the world of the Wilderlands of High Adventure, details on the royal family of the City State of the Invincible Overlord, two complete adventures, two organizations, a Lost God of the Wilderlands, two new classes, a new race, and plenty of new monsters, treasures, and judge's charts. The campaign installment for the first issue is the Player's Guide to the Southern Reaches, a mysterious region of the far south caught between the monstrous Demon Empires, the accursed Kingdom of Karak, and the howling savagery of the Wilderlands.

Adventure Games Journal subscriptions are available direct from Adventure Games Publishing. Subscribers receive each issue of Adventure Games Journal, along with its related Campaign Installment, plus various special subscriber-only limited-edition items available from time to time during the period of the subscription. A one year (six-issue) subscription costs $120, and includes shipping and handling. For more information on subscriptions e-mail: [email protected].

About Adventure Games Publishing
Iola, Wisconsin-based Adventure Games Publishing publishes the Wilderlands of High Adventure, designed and approved for use with Castles & Crusades. Adventure Games Publishing plans to support many disparate role-playing game systems and settings in the pages of Adventure Games Journal, and with licensed adventure modules and sourcebooks.

Ah, Shane, you know not what you ask!

Each subscriber package will include thre envelopes. The magazine and campaign installment will each be bagged and boarded in an envelope, while the third envelope will include subscriber goodies... which will be secret until the subscriber gets the envelope... So that's three envelopes to keep track of! :)

It looks like it will be $162 for a full year (6-issues) and $87 for a half-year (3-issues), unless there are any sort of tariffs or customs issues I am unaware of (and there may well be such). That's with Priority Mail International Flat Rate... each package could be upward of a pound or more with freebies.

Special shipping non-USPS would be more trouble than it's worth for me... the nearest UPS shop is a half-hour drive!

As I've mentioned elsewhere, it might work out better to find a business partner in the UK to print the magazine and campaign installment there...
