Blatant Codex Broadsheet

Date: Tue 12 Apr 1994 - 02:33:08 EEST

"Codex #1 was brilliant"---Ken Rolston, RQ developer of
multiple Avalon Hill projects

 "...I like it a lot. It really makes me miss my Pavis days (and I wish I'd had this mag when I was running RQ). The material on Prax and Pavis makes these locales come to life. Good job."---- Jonathan Tweet, game writer and designer

I'm quite impressed. You made beautiful use of the Babylonian pictures to illustrate historical Pavisites....I thoroughly enjoyed reading Codex 1....and the print is prime quality .... " ---Jeorg Baumgartner, publisher of the German RQ magazine Free INT

"I just got issue one in the mail. It's really superb and I thank
you for for your efforts in improving and disseminating Glorantha."--Brent Krupp

Codex dedicates its entire contents to discovering the nature and secrets of Glorantha through scenarios, articles, fiction and essays.

Issue 1 was a Pavis special, with about half of the issue examining facets of Pavic history, Lunar strategy in the city, details of life and infamous residents. Very well received at RQ Con, the US edition of #1 is currently sold out and becoming a collector's item.

Issue are 32 pages typeset, plus front & back covers inside & out. See details of UK subscription for possibilities of getting a copy of the first issue as printed in England.

Issue 2 is a western/Fronelan feature due out in April. It focuses on the city of Galastar and its rebirth after the lifting of the Ban. Also to be included is Greg Stafford's map of the God Plane, Paul Reilly's Tribes of Mortasor, and more.

production. Your magazine is clean, well edited, and of course, a necessity for all Glorantha lovers. I initially signed up for just two issues. After once glimpse, I want more.
