Mad Merc’s Gaming Gazette Issues 41 To 48 Are Now Online!

Checkered Demon Logo SmallDuring the early 90’s I published a newsletter that I emailed out to anyone who would listen. At the time my audience was comprised primarily of gaming buddies and folks on the Checkered Demon BBS. Each issue is like a collection of mini blog posts. 😉

Topics vary from issue to issue but focus on Hero Games product reviews/rules, video game reviews, comic book reviews, and other miscellaneous news items that would be appropriate for my gaming group. Looking back I think doing the small reviews in these issues whet my appetite for the type of more in depth reviews that I am performing now on this very blog.

You can find copies of the currently posted issues at this URL:

Issues 41 to 48 include the following highlights:

  • The Kid reviews Lobo Paramilitary XMAS Special and H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu.
  • My article on Hero System: Player Friendly, GM Ugly.
  • Review of Champions Presents, Gamer Magazine, and Normals Unbound.
  • Paladin’s review of the best computer games of 1991.
  • The Saga Of Rolf Sanswit by Chris Armstrong.
  • My review from Gen Con 25.
  • A Hero System trivia challenge!
  • More funny gaming quotes!

This is the last set of gazettes. Enjoy! 🙂
