Fight On! is the new fanzine dedicated to old school fantasy gaming.  Issue #3 will be dedicated to the memory of Bob Bledsaw.  In addition to the normal mix of how-to articles, adventures, and new monsters/magic items/spells, we plan to include one or more articles by friends and associates of Bob.  Bob's son has kindly granted us permission to use JG copyrights and trademarks for this issue and we've got Rob Conley working on a Wilderness Map #19 as one of the highlights of the issue.

Submissions are still open, so if you've got something you'd like to say about Bob, the Wilderlands, or Judges Guild we'd love to hear from you.  Or if you want to contribute an adventure or any of the other usual game zine fodder, please feel free to contact me ([email protected]) or the editor ([email protected]).  The deadline for submissions for issue three is 9/1.  If you've got an idea for something that needs more time, please contact me right away.

This is a fanzine, not a professional outing, so our writers do it for the love of the hobby without compensation.  The print edition is print-on-demand via Lulu.com, so even the editor pays for his own copy.  Submissions remain the property of their creators, by submitting you grant Fight On! only the right to use the work in the issue it originally appears.

The third issue of Fight On!, the coolest magazine in the hobby, is now available for sale. Among other stuff, this issue contains entirely new Wilderlands of High Fantasy material available nowhere else! And since Fight On! is sold via print-on-demand you can also still get issues #1 and #2. And while you're at the mag's lulu storefront be sure to grab the free download of Wilderlands map #19.

I'm thinking Fight On! #3 deserves a scan and content write up for a spot in the Other section.  It was a nice tribute to Bob Bledsaw with some really good Wilderlands material in it.

I intend to, even have the picture already and the info sort of ready to plug in.  Don't think it'll happen anytime this week, but if I have the time I'll try and get it on the site.
