Greetings!

Issue 16 of the Grotty Little Newspaper is out NOW!

I think we've some interesting and provocative stuff in this issue, all sorts of tactics articles to discuss, fluff to compliment and customisation articles to build upon.

Please let us know what you think: we make the GLN for you, so we'd love to know why you read it!

We'll begin feedback in the one thread, but should some articles get lots of comments, we can split out as we go.

On behalf of the team, I hope you enjoy it! Smile

Thanks,

Goo.

First bit of feedback is that in the article "The Game" (p6) there is supposed to be a link to... well, the game, at the start of paragraph 4. But there isn't. For ease of reference, it's this game.

Edit: Link fixed. I had indeed chosen the wrong game. I just found their last match, before having read which teams they were using, and assumed it was that one. Then got distracted by reading the rest of the article.

Are there any early candidates for a breakout thread?

As I was reading through, I was really interested by bghandras's work on fouling. Pretty controversial stuff in these days of CRP, but can it really still be effective? Also, DrPoods... What a thing that is! Smile

I really enjoyed it all, but DrPoods phenemonal effort and the fouling article were my favourites. See, fouling ftw is still true (for a given value of true)!

There was one article missing - it's now fixed.

And thumbs up to our new editor - I know that's an ungrateful job. May this issue by the first of many.

I have a question.

Why is the snotling on the cover of the GLN holding a D20? When in Blood Bowl we only roll D6 or on occasion a d8?

Don't think there were ever that many interesting articles in a GLN before.
Kinda makes me want to read the whole thing.

If you try really hard you can squeeze 20 snotlings on the pitch, then you need a D20 for the Throw a Rock Smile

@ PS: I'll tell you if you write an article for the next issue. Very Happy

(Serious offer, a top list like what you did for the best major finals would be awesome! You know that's GLN material!)
