Looking for new submissions for volume 3 as well. Already getting started on it with some ideas of my own and material that was left over. My email is in the fanzine- you can send me submissions or ideas there. If possible have them in word format double column as that is the format I use.

I e-mailed you an article from a few years back. Check your inbox.

For those looking for canon the fanzine does have some new items that can be used for those using various canon publications for their campaigns for background information or to expand the canon.

The Senegalese Tirailleurs references and expands several canon units from Going Home, the RDF and the East Africa/Kenya sourcebook.

The 15th Senegalese Tirailleurs Regiment is in Going Home while the 1st Senegalese Parachute Regiment is in the RDF.

The official canon East Africa/Kenya Sourcebook mentions both the 20th Senegalesee Tirailleurs Battalion in the section on Liberia and the 6th Senegalese Tirailleurs Regiment is mentioned as fighting in the Central African Republic against the LRA.

Matt's Naval Forces article has sections in it that I added the official canon US and French IO and Kenya naval forces from the East Africa sourcebook.

The new fanzine is being very well received and am getting started on volume 3 - please send your submissions or ideas to me - dsadams1@msn.com

Like to have it be done sooner and not another several year gap

I guess my article didn't make the cut. If it needs some revision, I'd be happy to tackle it and offer again for the 3rd issue with some new pictures I've got from the National Archives.

Please send it to me again with the new pics. It is one I am planning to put in the next issue but want to make sure the pics are clean and not copyrighted in any way

And dont worry anyone if your stuff didnt make the cut this time - wanted to leave some for the next edition instead of going 80 plus pages

and let me emphasize that - its not making the cut - its just that I dont want a monster fanzine and then nothing left over for the 3rd volume - will have a better handle on how much material will come in and be able to really pace the size and number of submissions needed

Didn't mean to sound overly negative! I'm excited for this volume, but figured I'd messed something up with my article. Thanks for the good work, Olefin. I've got some new photos all bundled up to send with properly identified credits. All Public Domain, most from the National Archives.

Still looking for more input for the 3rd and hopefully 4th editions of the fanzine

What kinds of things would people like to see more of? New locations? mini-modules? Things like the medical supplements for Twilight 2013 or the cooking in Twilight 2000?

Medical rules would be nice. Maybe more on night fighting or underground warfare. Ideas on muzzle flash and NVGs.

I would love some sort of article regarding the terms in v1 and v2 and how they can be altered in various lenghts, just like how v2013 has variable lenghts of their terms, or how to translate v2013 terms to v1 and v2.

So, if anyone has such a treasure stashed away I would be very happy.

Just as a reminder along with V1 and V2.2. submissions I am also open to anything anyone has done for MERC or for Twilight 2013 - had two submissions for 2013 in the 2nd edition and have one so far for the 3rd.

and here you guys go - let it stand alone on DriveThruRpg.com for a month as a free download but want to make sure its available here as well

This one is slightly edited from the one posted there - waiting for Marc to eventually update it - had a few spelling errors pointed out to me and that I had missed Dave Ross on the list of authors from the original fanzine - so corrected those errors and omissions

Would there be any room to add in the hydration rules?

https://forum.juhlin.com/showthread.php?t=6052

A guy over on one of the FB groups came up with them, a hybrid based on food rules and T2k13 rules, he's not active on this forum but I asked him and he's happy for them to be put out there if everyone would like?

Yes I would be interested in the hydration rules - can you send them to me - I can put them in the fanzine as a Twilight 2013 entry similiarly to the two articles I had in the 2nd volume - you can send me a private message here and I will give you my email or its in the 2nd volume of the fanzine itself at the end
