Shadis: the Science Fiction and Fantasy magazine #4

SKU: KC4 Category: Tags: , ,


Witness the beginning of a great adventure! Shadis: the Science Fiction and Fantasy magazine was started as a small press magazine in 1990 by Jolly R. Blackburn – the first step in what would eventually become the Knights of the Dinner Table magazine! Originally a photocopied publication, we’ve made it available just as it originally appeared, now in a form unimagined at the time.

Shadis provides a myriad of articles to enhance your role-playing, along with fiction, reviews, and much more!

Fans of Knights of the Dinner Table, as well as HackMaster, will recognize familiar writers and creators, as well as early references to the lands of Alderac (eventually to be HackMaster’s Aldrazar/Garweeze Wurld). Set your wayback machine to 1990 and download this classic PDF for yourself!
