Taking the ‘zine aesthetic further

I think I’ve hit on a way to do the text in my book that will be fun and interesting. I’ve been trying to figure out how to write the text so it is both clear and flavorful, and tinkering around with the idea of the zine aesthetic I mentioned earlier, and it hit me.

I think I’m going to try to write the game text in the format of a ‘zine. Try and make the whole thing an artifact of the world, a near-future ‘zine written from the voice of the rebellious youth of that era. I may even do it as a straight-up “roleplaying ‘zine,” I’m not sure. At the very least I intend to ask some of my friends to help me and write “articles” in the GM advice “chapter,” perhaps from certain characters’ voices.

  1. Daniel Solis has wisdom to share about this. I *just* posted a mini MP ep where he shares an anecdote about another project that’s meant to look like an in-game artifact.

  2. Robert,

    That’s a really cool idea. I’ll be interested to see how the guest contributions work out.
