    Colonial Times #1
    by Luca V. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 11/25/2013 13:42:09

    I am not a 2300AD player, I dabble in Traveller; this notwithstanding, I found this magazine both useful and beautiful to read, with some downfall for me (but probably not for 2300 players and referees).

    I liked this issue so much, I contacted Stygian Fox and asked to contribute - which I did in the following issues (so, I won't review them as it would be ehrm... cheesy).

    I particularly like the fake ads, that lend life to the product - I know, it is not a first, but it is a good use of a quality trope.

    It is free. It is beautiful. It is useful. Do you need more?

    Colonial Times #2

    Features more artist contributions than issue #1 which improves the appeal but still lacks the new, purposeful content of a decent fanzine. Contains Charles Gannon's Operation Backdoor adventure which looks simply ported over from a 2300 fansite and has not been converted to the newest ruleset- although not new, an excellent adventure. Contains a review of another game (Ashen Stars) which is puzzling for a fanzine dedicated to 2300AD. Overall a few interesting bits but editing seems amiss like they're a bit out of their element. Not a page turner but hey, it's free. 2.5 overall (rounded up to 3)

    An interesting fiction from the current author of 2300AD, a few bits of art from Ian Stead that are nice and an interview with a GDW alum Charles Gannon. Otherwise Colonial Times doesn't really add anything necessary or interesting as would be expected of a Fanzine though - more like junkmail. Has fictional ads etc. that look a bit amateurish. Has some history or events in the gameworld that seem to be made up by the editor maybe(?) that aren't very good. Not worth buying if it wasn't free but since it is, you don't really lose anything but time I suppose.
