Issue 1, Introduction to DDWRPG
The idea for the DDWRPG ‘zine came about in early 2010, when we were preparing for the 25th Anniversary game of our own Doctor Who RPG campaign. Started on 01 April 1985, we were doing a special game celebrating the campaign’s anniversary when someone asked how we would be able to play such a big module, with players from all eras of the game invited to play at the same table at the same time. Many of the players at the table had taken a turn game mastering during the campaign but not everyone knew how one could bring together such a large group, many who hadn’t gamed in years, for a special event like this. It was at that time that we realized that we had a lot of gaming experience between us. Not just with Doctor Who games, but with lots of systems such as Dungeons
& Dragons, Vampire and the World of Darkness, Call of Cthulhu, Paranoia, Star Trek, and so many more roleplaying games as well as board games, miniatures, historical, and live action RPGs as well. This was knowledge that we could share with other gamers and so the idea to do a Doctor Who RPG fanzine was born.
