The Dragons of Britain #1
Publisher: Stygian Fox

Excellent resource for Arthurian material. Although the magazine focuses on the Pendragon game systems, the stories and characters presented within can easily be used for any low magic medieval setting.

I haven't taken the time to fully review the content because of the excessively slow scrolling and loading of the pages. Why is this 64 page pdf 63 MB of data? I have other pdf products that have significantly more pages while still being beautifully illustrated and colored yet are less than half the size of this magazine.

Hi Ian, Thanks for your comments. Part of the problem has been that this issue was designed for print at a high resolution (the original idea was to have a full print run) but circumstances changed after the magazine was laid out. With helpful feedback like yours and from others, the second issue was reduced further. While still quite a large file of 47mb its below the specs of most of the readers we\'ve talked to and is a medium distance between loadability and attractive trade dress. The sad fact is that when we try to do an interactive version with a much lower size, it would come out as a double page spread (to be read on a wide screen) and this has been a common complaint with InDesign in an interactive PDF setting. I\'m sorry it became awkward to read and took time to load. I hope you find the second issue easier for your device to handle. I\'m a one-man-band operation and managing to reduce file size where I can and as I learn. Thank you for taking the time out to mention this problem.

The Dragons of Britain #1 is a stellar first issue. When first opening the magazine you get the feeling of pulling the sword from the stone as you are amazed by the content, illustrations, layout and overall professionalism of the issue. It must be said that its creator is really well known for his work on Call of Cthulhu and I would have been surprised if this didn't come out perfect. If there is only one negative point with this release, it is the size of the PDF. It is pretty hard to digest for my computer (Quad-core, 8 GB of RAM nonetheless) and makes it a bit of a pain to leaf through. I'm not sure I'm gonna try it on my Nexus 7.

That said, a big hurrah to Steff Worthington and long live The Dragons of Britain!

Hi Dominik, Thanks for the great review! I have taken your comments on board and I\\\'m looking into better ways to reduce the file size. Once I resolve the size speedbump I\\\'ll reupload and update this issue and further issues. Thanks again for helping Stygian Fox out with this! Steff
