Oubliette Issue 5 for FREE!


Issue 5 of Oubliette is due for release next week.

With it, comes some good news and some bad news.

The bad news is that the cover price is going up to a heady $2.50.  This is mainly due to the size of the magazine.  I originally planned for each issue of Oubliette to be 18-24 pages long, but it has consistently been much longer than that.

The good news is that as a thank-you to everyone who has supported the magazine by buying it, reviewing it, and generally offering encouragement, Issue 5 will be available for free download from rpgnow.com until the end of March.

Here's an advance look at the contents:

• Tales from Hell – Words of Wisdom from the Soothsayer
• Monster Club #8 – The Monstermark System for Labyrinth Lord
• The Vampire – 12 Pages of Alternative Rules for Creating Labyrinth Lord Vampires
• Good Shop/Bad Shop – Mad Varto's
• What's on the Battlemat? – Dungeon in a Box
• PC for PCs – A Very un-PC Approach to Dealing with Paladins
• What's in the Oubliette? – A Selection of Gaming and Other Reviews
• Mouse Watch – Our Heroes Enter a Storytelling Contest
• The Song of Sithakk – Part 5 of our Serialized Story
• Plus Bonus Material comprising: Cleric Spell Cards for Labyrinth Lord and Blank Vampire Record Sheets

  1. Looking forward to it. I just ordered the bundle pack of 1-4 off of Lulu at the beginning of the weekend. Looks like I'll get another dose of Oubliette Magazine before too long.

  2. Thanks for ordering the compilation. I'll be interested to know what you think of it.

    Still buried in proof reading Issue 5 but it's getting there.

  3. Issue 5 is great and I really enjoyed it. It was like reading an old White Dwarf magazine (back when they were awesome and wrote about D&D).
