Everyday there is something new - Draconic Magazine Review

Maybe you have heard about Draconic magazine, maybe you haven't?  Here is my little review of a very cool online magazine/blog that has just appeared.

From the "What's This About?" section of the website

Draconic Magazine is primarily a tabletop fantasy roleplaying game resource filled with articles (glorified blog posts, really) to help GMs and players alike. We want you to game better. If we've done our job, your adventures will be more adventurous, your characters will have more character, your villains will be more villainous, monsters more monstrous, and every new campaign will be that much more awesome.

Created/hatched from the mind that brought you "Liberation Of The Demonslayer" and the new "Island of purple haunted putrescence"  +Venger Satanis does it again!  The magazine is full of great ideas for players & GM's alike.  Since its inception (about a week ago?) there have been a ton of new posts.  It seems that almost everyday there is something new to read.  And not only is Venger writing posts, but he has a few other authors in the stable as well.  (I am currently trying to talk him into posting a article that I wrote this morning).  While not strictly OSR the site has its roots there.  It is really about role playing, GMing and helping you to be better players & GM's (as above statement).  We need more magazines like this.

The website acts as a vehicle for sales obviously, but it is a lot more to it than that.  But of course aren't we all trying to do this?   Take a look at my blog, huh there's a bunch of links to modules I've written and drivethrurpg etc.  It happens.  That being said the "Book Of The Month" currently is a module called "The Hanging Coffins Of The Vampire Queen", which was not written by Venger.

By far my absolute favorite post is Kodarrs Kommandements, I am hoping this will become a regular feature.

If you would like to publish a article with Draconic Magazine go and click here.

Speaking of submitting an article: You own the content. I only ask for 3 months grace period before you, the author, re-publish it. At which point, it would be nice to receive a mention of where it was originally published. If Draconic Magazine re-publishes content in a commercial form (PDF or print for sale), the original author will receive credit and a portion of the profits equal to the percentage of author's content within the entire manuscript.

As a side note the graphics & artwork all over the site are amazing and inspiring.

That's my 2 cents.
