Sharpen your swords and string your bows! Our annual Zine Quest open call returns in February 2023.
RPG zines emerged in the early 1970s, and were hugely influential in the early days of role-playing game fandom and publishing. These self-published projects included discussions of games, rules variants, reviews, interviews, game supplements, and even new RPGs. Today, RPG zines live on via a thriving community of DIY publishers from around the world.
Zine Quest is our celebration of RPG zines and the community of people who make and love them. To participate, simply launch a project in February for an RPG zine. In the past, creators have used maps, comics, and more to create new or elevate existing RPGs.
Build your project using the link on the Zine Quest landing page to automatically receive a Zine Quest tag. We’ll promote RPG zine projects throughout February in Kickstarter newsletters, throughout the site, on social media, and more.
