What makes a Zine Quest zine?

Double-click to edit this text

Zines must either contain an RPG or feature RPG-related content, like maps, adventures, monsters, comics, articles, and/or interviews. 

Zines must be 5.5” x 8.5” (A5) or smaller.

Zines must feature one-color printing. Think beyond black ink, or consider printing on colorful paper.

Zines must be unbound, folded, stapled, or saddle-stitched. No hard cover or perfect binding allowed.


Campaigns should last no more than two weeks. Keep your project small and doable. In two weeks, you could launch another zine, or just look back proudly on a job well done.
