Spectral Vision Issue 1
A,short-lived, Advanced Dungeons and Dragons Fanzine I created in 1984.
It contained a wealth of new and original material and plenty of illustrations.
The rules and statistics can be easily adapted to suit any fantasy or even sci-fi role-playing game. More
I began playing and game-mastering AD&D (Advanced Dungeons and Dragons) in 1978.
By 1984 I had a fair collection of new material and came up with the idea of creating my own fanzine.
Pulling together issue 1 took a fair amount of effort, and cost. I had 250 issues printed locally and then managed to persuade a few game stores to sell a few copies for me. In the end I sold around 200 copies – mainly thanks to a good review in Imagine magazine (issue 24 if memory serves me well) – at a small overall loss.
The first issue was in A4 format and had 40 pages.
In 1985 I managed to publish issue 2 (which will also be available for download shortly).
