Description Edit | History

Product description-

"The first issue of Knockspell Magazine, the magazine for old-school fantasy roleplaying games using 0e, 1e, OSRIC, Swords & Wizardry, and Labyrinth Lord."

Note on Winter vs. Spring: The back cover shows "Winter 2009" whereas the table of contents page shows "Spring 2009". This entry chooses to call the magazine the Winter 2009 issue, because the release month (Feb) is not a Spring month, and because the following issue was called the Spring issue.
