I can't believe that I (nor Cianty for that matter) haven't come here to hawk the Letters of the Damned. New scenarios, warbands, hired swords and fan fiction. Moreso, we strive to replace the Town Cryer as the official voice of Mordheim. Check out the first four issues through the link below:

Letters of the Damned


Edit: Stickied!
Edit: Now available from the Resources section.
Edit: Unstickied because the ezine has been discontinued. Check out the resources section for back issues.

I'm glad you opened this thread, Tom. Actually I was going to open a thread of the ezine recently but somehow forgot. I'll see to it that it gets represented here properly when you don't find the time. Smile

I'll try to announce every new issue here. This month's issue features some excellent work so I urge you all to have a look at it.

LOD #4:
- Secret Society warband: A warband of spellcasters that shows a sparkle of brilliancy.
- William Schäkestange: An awesome Dramatis Personae with crazy rules and fluff and a cool conversion to go along with it.
- A new scenario by the Mordheimer
- An improved Gallery with full color pictures for the DP, warband and other.

Check it out here: http://redclawgaming.com/cs/files/11/letters_of_the_damned/entry2776.aspx

Nice zine. How do you collect the rules you publish? Do people send you stuff or do you make them up yourself? Do you playtest stuff before you publish it?

Most excellent to hear, JohnYoung! I truly appreciate your praise! It's for people like you that the zine is being published...now if I could only find the time to start on this months issue...I know what's going to be in it, but that doesn't get it done, now does it? =)

Cheers!

ALL of the material in the zine is playtested...extensively. I will NOT allow just anything to be published in the Letters of the Damned as there are already several websites that post almost anything. Those websites that take a bit more responsibility (like mordheimer.com, for example) list playtesters, warband creators and the level of playtesting done to a warband/hired sword. I will always ensure that anything goes through at LEAST ten games prior to its inclussion in the zine, and I've even pushed back scheduled articles because we haven't had the time to properly playtest them.

In response to your other question, the rules/scenarios/warbands are all submitted. While I myself have been contributing to Mordheim for nearly four years now and some stuff in the zine is mine, everything else is submitted. You can find out about the authors on the Submissions - Authors page (usually located towards the rear of the zine). You are more that welcome to submit your articles, pictures of figs, battle reports or fiction to the email address supplied on the same page, assuming you agree to the submission guidelines and disclaimer.

Thanks for the interest, and keep reading!

The new issue of the Letters of the Damned is available now! Check it out at http://redclawgaming.com/cs/files/11/letters_of_the_damned/entry7611.aspx.

I highly recommend having a look at the Watchtower, which I think is a very nice and handy index. Please let me know what you think about it (PMs welcomed). You can also download the Watchtower individually from www.bordertownburning.de.vu (go to Articles, then bottom - or directly from here.).

Quote :

Greetings from the Damned! In this massive issue, you'll find:

* Preview to one of the most anticipated settings for Mordheim, Border Towns Burning!
* Starting rules for the dreaded Sylvania. Does your warband have the guts to venture into the land of eternal night?
* New Hired Sword from good ol' Grom, the Dark Mage.
* A great battle report featuring everyone's favorite psycho, Victor Danzig.
* Devils Den Challenge #2, New Equipment
* The Watchtower makes it's triumphant return.

Be sure to download today! As always, your comments and questions are welcome (Email addi provided in-mag).

Cheers!
Tom "Brahm Tazoul" Bell

So, I have the first six of these issues. Are there any plans for more issues? I think the letters of the damned are just wonderful. Is there a problem with publishable material? I have not found a status update anywhere, but I might just have missed it.

Thanks
Eric

I think Brahm is busy with other things. There is no "official" comment from him about this but he mentioned lack of time in some post on the (currently down) Specialist Games forum. We'll see...

I believe Brahm is dealing with some personal issues and no longer publishes his LOD e-zine. I have them saved on my computer, and wouldn't mind e-mailing them to you, but the files are pretty big (1.8, 8.7, 10.5, 16, 6, and 7 megs respectively). PM me if you're interested.
