Black Pudding Review at Print and Paper Games

Jeff George over at Print and Paper Gamer gave Black Pudding a nice, lengthy review that is much appreciated.

I will make a couple of clarifications, just to avoid confusion. Some confusion is undoubtedly caused by my lack of explaining myself in the zine so the blog author is not to be slighted here for it.

Black Bestiary: This title for the monster section only appears in issue #1 because after including it I did a Google search and realized that Black Bestiary was a name already in use by multiple entities. I normally Google stuff like that first, but in this case I didn't. So I decided to drop the name and just not worry about it. Now I am free to sprinkle monsters through the zine wherever I want, which is better for the chaotic nature of the venture.

OSR Playbook: The article says this was hand-lettered, but it is not. I use a couple of fonts. I did combine the use of Elsene with hand-drawn flair for the character class headers. The rest is not hand lettered. Also, the article states that there are 4 classes but there is no Cleric in the mix, so there are really only 3.

Thanks again to Jeff George for the very kind review!
