Threshold # 2

So, the second issue of Threshold: The Mystara Magazine is out this week. This is not the first time I mention this fan magazine on this blog. Although my name is listed in the credits, I'm not really sure there is much there I could take credit for. The end result however is terriffic! Even better for you Blackmoor fans, there is indeed a Blackmoor article by Francesco Defferrari (Sturm) in the magazine.

As with the 1st issue, Threshold #2 follows up with a classy cover, professional layout and editing and 182 pages of high quality fan material. The articles are well written and illustrated by a combination of commons lisence illustrations and art contributions. I really liked seeing the illustrations by I "Meandrathel" Calvin, both in the Hollow Moon and Lupin articles.

With the second issue of Threshold out, the editorial team has proven that they are able to deliver what looks like it will be a regular series of fan magazines for Mystara fans. Issues #3 and #4 are already in the works.

If you are still wondering how to get Threshold #2, simply click on this link. Also, the Magazine has a Facebook Page, so you can "like" Threshold here.

  1. I've always loved Mystara's mishmash of cultures. Cut my teeth on that stuff. Good to see someone actually doing something with it!

  2. Very cool! While I've never been the biggest fan of Mystara, the level of love and effort that is going into Threshold is making me reconsider... because when fellow gamers are passionate about something, it must be good! Confession: I did make a short-lived attempt to play some B/X (via Labyrinth Lord) in Thunder Rift in the last year, and the old Gazetteers were just cool.
