Talking Good Luck, You're on your Own! (T2K Fanzine Thread)

I'm happy to announce the 1st Issue of the Twilight: 2000 fanzine!

Thanks to the contributions of a few people, I easily had enough material to create a decent first issue. I hope that people like it, and that it helps spur some more contributions from people for future issues!

For the time being, this file is going to be hosted on Yahoo Groups, though I have made the file viewable to all people, not just members.

Comments and suggestions are welcome, as are more contributions! You can either post on this thread, or you can email me at Twilightgrimace_at_gmail_dot_com

You can find the 1st issue here: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Twilig...0Issue%201.pdf

and also here (if you don't have a Yahoo ID) https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B7K...zFGd3dIY1R3ZVk

And it is also being hosted at: http://www.pmulcahy.com/PDFs/good_lu...wn_issue_1.pdf


I hope you all enjoy!

Can we maybe just attach it here? Yahoo makes doing stuff like this as difficult as possible and I've got enough internet identities as it is. I'd love to see it though.

If I can get a moderator to assist me with that, I'd be happy to. I set the parameters on the Yahoo Group so that the files should be viewable even to non-members. - Edit: But now I see that's not working correctly. I'll see if I can fix that.

The file is too large given current settings for the forum. After the migration to a new domain/server things might change but for now another site is probably best.

Thumbs up

Grimace,
the alternate access works just fine! I'll be reading the 1st issue (I just had a short glance at the Table of Contents, finding some prominent names) during the next hours.

Thanks to you, personally, and to those, who contributed articles.

Very well done

I've also discovered, though I'm sure some of you already know this, that if you go to the "File" menu of Google Docs and select Download, you can download the file and then you get full functionality of the bookmarks and links.

Great work! Issue 2 when?

Don't want to be that guy. But the member of the Adjutant General's Corps on page is in fact a member of the Intelligence Corps...

That's down to me, not Grimace or James. Iirc the cap badge wasn't clear on the original photo so I assumed it was AGC (which is very close in colour to the Int Corps). I should have checked the stable belt, which makes it obvious.

I'm thinking the end of time for contributors to submit material for Issue 2 will be the End of February. Then I'll have Issue 2 out by March. If I get a sudden, massive influx of material, then I might be able to get Issue 2 out sooner.

Otherwise Issue 2 will be scheduled for sometime in March 2013.

I just got it!!!!

First glimpse or two....

INCREDIBLE WORK!!!!!

I will be like the others, reading away.

Thank you all for making this a reality.

I do have an idea for a very short story. (Something on the order of a page or two)

How would you like this submitted to you?

If you've got something you'd like to submit for the next issue, or ANY future issues, email it to Twilightgrimace_at_gmail.com (just replace the appropriate sign)

I'd love to have people submit fiction, artwork, adventures, equipment, NPCs, whatever they've got that they want to share.

Glad you like the first issue!

Yahoo, GoogleDocs, Yahoo IDs?

I have a better idea. Email the mag to me and I'll put it on my site.

Very very good stuff - a great read for sure!

Especially loved the African article by Raellus. In my opinion it was easily the equal of many of the articles published in Challenge so long ago.

Still working on my own East Africa Sourcebook and should have it ready soon - and will see about getting you something from it for the next fanzine issue. May take a piece out of it for an article - possibly on the nuclear attacks in Africa which are part of it. My sourcebook has a different approach on Kenya than what Raellus has but that is the thing that makes Twilight 2000 such a great game - i.e. that freedom to innovate within the framework of the overall design of the game and the backstory.

Cant wait for the next issue and I hope for many others as well to come!

I'm glad you guys are liking it!

Make sure you guys spread the word about it! Tell your friends, tell people that you know used to like Twilight: 2000. Maybe it'll rekindle some interest in the game for others.

I'm sure you guys visit other places that I don't, so the more people out there spreading the word about it, the more coverage it'll get.

I have 80% plus of the Challenge portfolio and have read most more times than I can count.

With few exceptions (Air Module 1-2, Red Maple, The Village, a few others) the official works don't hold much of a candle to what you guys did...no offense to any of the original authors.

Issue 1 really is that good...fantastic work all around...can't wait for issue 2!

I like this idea. In my opinion, the more exposure the fanzine gets, the better. I'd also like to make this thread (or a similar one) a sticky so that it's always prominently displayed on this site. IIRC, Kato's forum and Paul's site usually end up near the top of the Twilight 2000 Google search results.

I used the email function on this site to send to Paul, but I couldn't attach the file. I requested an email back, so then I could send the file. Just waiting on that.

I also agree, that the more places this is available, the better it'll be. Likewise, it'll be good if everyone that likes it helps spread the word about it. More views = hopefully more interest in the game
More interest = hopefully more contributors, which means more issues

So, Paul, check your email.

I took the liberty of sticking this thread. I didn't consult with Kato or the other moderators so hopefully they're OK with it. If not, it might be unstuck later on.

I just want to make sure that this thread and its accompanying links to GLYOYO doesn't drop out of view over time. I'd like every new viewer to see it.

I replied to Grimace. I've been asleep all day. (It happens.)

Did Time Warner not accept the email with the attachment? It would be strange; I've had people send me up to 10MB attachments.

OK, here it is...

http://www.pmulcahy.com/PDFs/good_lu...wn_issue_1.pdf

I also found that two files that are listed on the PDF page were not actually on the site, so I fixed that.

The capitalized "PDF" in the address is important -- it must be capitalized.

The PDF page in of itself is the same; just lop off the "Good Luck..." part of the address.

Have a question - are you only looking for things that are new for the fanzine or can we post things there that were previously posted here?

The USN section and the Raellus piece on the 173rd had been posted here but were fleshed out for the fanzine. However there are some excellent things that have already been posted here that probably could go directly into the fanzine as is.

Stuff like:

49th Armored Division

The list of stuff that could be found by players instead of just the usual weapons, spare parts and food.

The Falklands Islands Sourcebook

Just wondering
