Fanatical Sci-Fi and Fantasy Stories Inspired by Tabletop Games 6

Fledgling Listing: This project is new and has been listed with us for less than six months.


Fanatical is the magazine of sci-fi and fantasy stories based on tabletop games. What exactly does that mean? Often when playing games around a table with friends, stories are told that go on to fuel the imagination well after the game has finished. This could be the result of roleplaying games, board games or miniature wargames. Fanatical is the place to for those stories. For all those people that turn up to their first session of Dungeons & Dragons with 17 pages of backstory. For those that "definitely aren't into roleplaying" but play the part of their character in Betrayal at the House on the Hill a bit too well. For those that have worlds within their head that need to be explored. Come join us and maybe, guide us through a world of your own.
