I'm on the staff of a new magazine dedicated to old-school D&D called & (And). Here's a blurb with info and the web site, where you can download a free copy:

A new magazine dedicated to old-school Dungeons & Dragons has arrived!
Entitled &, the quarterly publication focuses on 1st edition AD&D and
features fan-driven content such as fiction, editorials, rules variants,
adventure maps, original adventures, and a variety of game aids such as new
monsters, spells, and character classes. Each issue will focus on a particular theme.

Lost ships.

Missing crews.

Disappearing cargo.



The King is not pleased, and it's your job to find out what happened and bring a stop to it! To do so you'll have to unravel a mystery that's stumped the king's advisors. There are minimal clues: one ship that made it back with a stabbing spear of unusual design and some odd blood on the deck. Be warned though, the rough and tumble sailors in a bar and even a sea monster or two aren't nearly as deadly as the answer to this riddle.

&2: Rage from the Waves is the first non-collaborative adventure published by the & Publishing Group. Four to eight characters of 4th to 7th level will figure out the mystery, including who can tell them what they need to know, and rescuing the survivors before it's too late. The adventure includes two completely detailed businesses, a full set of deck plans for a carrack, a second set of partial plans providing design variations, and an island with room for additional adventuring if you so desire. Add to this over 80 fully documented characters for use in this and other adventures, including several ship's crews, and you have an adventure that is also a resource. The adventure pulls from multiple sources ranging from our own magazine issues to articles from The Dragon, to provide a setting steeped in the varied and dynamic resources of the OSR.

So visit http://www.and-mag.com today and download it for free! And while you're there, go ahead and download &1: The Valley of Eternal Rest and our first four issues if you don't already have them, all free and available now.

& Magazine Issue 5 Now Available!

The & Publishing Group announces their fifth issue, an issue focused on magic items and their creation. Give your magic-users and druids staves as foci of their magic, let your clerics create magic items that grow with the character’s level, discover ways to manage magic-user apprentices and assistants, and feast your eyes on large numbers of magic items, including more new magic items from Len Lakofta, along with other articles and our regular columns.



There’s also adventures, creatures, foes, maps, and other useful materials we feel you’d enjoy, along with the usual things you’ve come to expect from &, so download it today and feast your eyes on 92 pages of new material for your OSR game!

But wait, there’s more. Magic items are such a big topic that we had too much to squeeze into one issue, so we’ve moved some of it into its own supplement, &5002: Mundane Magica. This 36 page supplement gives you a new table of non-violent magic items generated from submissions from readers and folks on different forums and newsgroups, additional information for the original 100 item list from The Dragon #73, and a full table of stealth weapons and armor. Add that to the magazine and you’ve got 128 pages of magic item goodness to use in your game.
