From the Editorial of Issue #8:
June 1986 - A photocopied and stapled fanzine titled Arcanum appeared in Dalton, Georgia. The 30 copies of this which we printed sold pretty well (in our opinion at the time). In fact, we only have one or two of these still in our possession.
August 1986 - We decided to make Arcanum a monthly RPG magazine, but since Palladium Books had a publication called Arcanum we knew we couldn't stick with the title if we were going to go about producing the magazine seriously. So we changed the name. Yes, to White Wolf. White Wolf #1 appeared shortly thereafter and due to now having a distributor we sold about 140 copies.
September 1986 - White Wolf #2 appeared and in keeping with an undefined goal I had set down, we made an improvement over the previous issue as we would continue always to make the next issue better. We used a computer to coordinate assembling the magazine. Needless to say, this was a step which took us out of the dark ages. 200 copies of this issue were printed.
October 1986 - In addition to adding a new artist to our ranks this month, #3 also had an off-white cover. This definitely improved the attractiveness of the magazine. About 200 copies were printed.
November 1986 - We made a big step forward with issue #4. We actually took the issue to a printer. The days of stapling photocopied pages was behind us. We printed 300 copies of the issue.
December 1986 - We added color to the cover of issue #5 which was completed this month. At first we only printed 120 copies of this issue, but soon afterwards we began to receive several orders from distributors and we printed 1000 more.
February 1987 - Having discovered that a good deal more work is involved in preparing an issue that is to go to press, we began to slip from our monthly schedule a bit. But #6 was still a step forward. The second color that we used on the cover was not purely for decoration purposes - it was actually part of the picture itself. This issue also marks the first appearance of our current staff artist, Richard Thomas. 1000 copies were printed.
April 1987 - With issue #7 we began a two column per page format. This improved the overall quality of the magazine and gave it a definite professional touch. We were, however, still hopelessly a fanzine.
December/January 1987 - That's now. And White Wolf is back and in full stride. The magazine has tripled in length, added a color cover and has made so many other improvements that the earlier issues could not be considered even comparable to it. What's best is that there are 10,000 of us out there.
