Can't wait

Olefin 05-13-2020 12:01 PM

Volume 2 has been published on drivethrurpg.com as a free download - will have it here and on facebook as well

https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product...-2?cPath=21_23

FYI the original volume 1 is also there as well

Olefin 06-16-2020 09:42 AM

uploaded the second volume of the fanzine on that thread - will upload it here tonight as well

Olefin 07-07-2020 04:58 PM

FYI just to give an idea on how well the two fanzines were recevied when they went up on drivethrurpg.com

and also keep in mind that by late June I had posted the second volume here for free and Grimace's volume 1 had been on Paul's site for years - so putting them there brought a much wider audience for both of them

Working on it now - I got distracted by my yearly battle with the IRS and doing the taxes for myself and my kids - but on it now - have a canon expansion of the East Africa Sourcebook, "The Free Port of Zanzibar", almost done (my contribution) and looking for more for the 4th edition of the fanzine

Updated info (as of today) on fanzine downloads since last issue released - thank you all for your continued interest in the fanzine

No. 1 - 2040
No. 2 - 2011
No. 3 - 1319

Regardless of what happens to this forum the fanzine will continue and there will be new editions on a regular basis.

Found an article that shrike6 and Paul were talking about back in 2018 for Panama that was originally posted on Chris Callahan’s Twilight 2000 page which was dedicated to Twilight 2000 South America and dealt specifically with US and other forces in Panama, Colombia and Central America.

Orrin Ladd reposted this on his page and tried to contact Chris but was unable to contact him. If anyone knows how to get a hold of Chris please get a hold of me as I would love to use this for the fanzine.

Can use it as is for V1 or edit it for the V2.2 canon which saw the 173rd temporarily deployed to Central America before it went to Kenya.

Can give accreditation to Chris and post as is but would much rather get his official blessing.

This was the link Shrike6 posted - https://web.archive.org/web/20021206...uthamerica.htm

thread here where Shrike6 and Paul were discussing it - https://forum.juhlin.com/showthread.php?t=5740

Olefin 08-04-2021 12:13 PM

Still looking for contributions for the fourth volume of the fanzine and definitely will need them for the fifth - you can either attach them here or send me them as a PM or email

shrike6 08-06-2021 02:32 PM

What kind of deadline do you have on the issues? I'm busy but might be able to find some time to pull something together depending on when.

trying to get the fourth edition down now - still working on it - send it to me and worst case it goes in number 5

Vespers War 08-12-2021 04:06 PM

I see the "Modern History of Chemical Weapons" section sticks to the commonly taught (false) history of Germany using chemical weapons first in World War I, when France had been using gas grenades since August 1914 (and Germany had at least two failed chemical attack attempts before April 1915, an October 1914 dianisidine chlorosulfate attack where the bursting charges incinerated the chemical and a January 1915 attack with xylyl bromide where the chemical froze so quickly it didn't have any effect).

ETA: the description of Jan Husster in "The Treasure Mine" says he joined the militia in 1197 instead of 1997.

sorry about that - I can fix the typos and see if Marc will update the file - thanks for catching that

Olefin 08-17-2021 08:15 AM

fyi for those looking to send me submissions you can do so here by PM or you can email me at dsadams1@msn.com

Olefin 09-09-2021 12:33 PM

Ewan 11-07-2021 11:50 PM

Excellent, I’m heading down to London for the weekend so will give me something to read for the journey :)

Matt Wiser 11-12-2021 01:54 AM

Vol. 4 now available at Drivethrurpg.com. Got my copy a few minutes ago. And yes, it's very well done.

Olefin 11-12-2021 06:49 AM

Here is the link to the 4th edition - and correction on the cover - the thumbnail shows the cover differently than the actual download does - https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product...o-4?src=newest

Thank you very much Matt and thank you as always for your submissions for it and for the next edition!

Olefin 11-15-2021 07:18 AM

Thought I would share this comment on the last fanzine for all those who have contributed to the four fanzines

PURCHASER
I don't play Twilight 2000 but I enjoy reading your fanzine. Props to you Mr. Adams and to all the volunteers.

FYI 325 downloads in its first week of publication - thanks for the continued interest in it and all the content created by those who contributed to it

Grimace 11-19-2021 08:18 AM

Good to see this is still going on. I received an email from a fellow, I'm guessing to submit new material, so I directed him to the msn address for sending new material to.

Keep up the good work!

You are welcome and love to continue the legacy of what you started - would never have occurred without all the hard work you did to get the original put together and published
