A Killer First Issue!
Our first issue's cover is a wonderful watercolour painting by Rising Stars of Manga award winning artist Lanny Liu. It is called the Dragon and the Knight, both are taking a break from fighting to read BIV #1. As you should too!
In this issue ...
A complete new game by Keith Foo entitled Mysterious Circumstances. It is a new style of "Beer and Pretzels" RPG that is meant to take only three hours to complete. Simple, yet entertaining it will no doubt provide hours of "down time" fun while taking a break from your usual campaign.
We were blessed to have Shelly Mazzanoble be part of our first issue. Renowned as the author of Confessions of a Part-time Sorceress she has been instrumental in encouraging the explosion of women gamers we see today.
In addition, we have ongoing columnists working on such topics as Living with a Gamer, Coming out of the gaming closet, The best store in the GTA and Keith Hackwood's deep dive into the gamer's psyche with Through the Mountains of Qaf and plenty more campaign material that can help you flush out your world. Our tough but fair reviewer of old school games checks out Castles & Crusades in the column Kickin' It Old School.
To add even more value, www.thehobbykingdom.com has generously provided a $10 CDN gift card in the magazine as part of their ad. Bring a copy of Big Iron Vault #1 to their retail store, show them that you support independant publishers to receive your bonus. (Due to logistics you need to be there in person, printing of the advertisement is allowed and one card per family while the offer lasts.)
So why not get an issue today? With all this value it's really a no brainer!
