Description Edit | History

Introduction
Hi everyone,

Well here it is, as promised.

It's been quite a while since the last CM, and I've been pretty busy. I've written the Slayers Guide to Games Masters and the Jonny Nexus Compilation for Mongoose Publishing, written an article entitled "The Care and Feeding of an English Gamer for the Irish gaming fanzine White Elephant, been translated into French, and been cited in an academic paper! In addition to those, I had a column for Mongoose Publishing's magazine Signs & Portents, initially in print, but later as a free PDF download. You can get articles by me in Issue 26 ("Alternate Magic Items"), Issue 27 ("Goodbye Doctor Dalton"), Issue 28 ("The Day I Nearly Killed A Player"). Issue 29 ("Rebooting Your Campaign: Part I") and Issue 30 ("Rebooting Your Campaign: Part II")

I've also played around with my digital camera, been bored near to death at meetings, narrowly avoided poisoning myself, and felt proud to be English.

Oh, and the roleplaying's been as dysfunctional as ever.

Anyway, here's Issue 10. Hope it was worth the wait.
