The HackJournal is a quarterly PDF magazine designed specifically for (and by) the members of the HackMaster Association - an organization of dedicated HackMaster players and GameMasters who meet online and in person to discuss and play the HackMaster roleplaying game.
HackJournal also previews special pre-release material, including 'alpha' and 'beta' rules previews for future HackMaster products! Readers are encouraged to try out these new rules and provide feedback on the Kenzer and Company discussion forums.
The magazine was originally released in paper form, mailed to members and available at some game stores.
The first issue was published in 2002.
The first two issues were of "zine" size, 7" x 8.5"; issues 3 and above were a more standard 8.5" x 11".
Issues 9 and above were published online as PDF; subsequently all issues were made available online.
Issues 1-12 were numbered in the form "HJ 4.##", to represent the 4th edition of HackMaster.
Issue 30 was the first issue after the release of HackMaster 5th Edition
