I just finished browsing my Dungeon and Dragon magazine collection, reading Scale mail and the editorials. Some articles and adventures, because I was searching stuff for my RotRL campaign.
After I put the magazines back on my shelve I realized howhard I miss them both!
I love to get Pathfinder every month, but its not the same. The kobold Quarterly is out there and great (and I have every issue by now), but its not my Dungeon or Dragon magazine.
I miss my fan-zine, harder than I thought!

Well, maybe I am just a bit on the drama-side of life...


You're not alone, I miss 'em too.

I was fanatically dedicated to Dragon while it was in print. From #200, each and every month I'd buy my copy off the newstand, never missing an issue. I'm pretty proud of my collection ;).

I was extremely upset by the cancelation of the print mags. Still, I eventually decided to give WotC's D&D Insider a try. I like what I've seen so far; it's not quite the same as print however.

For one thing: I'm more inclined to read in-depth with printed material and more likely to skim with on-screen text (a subtle drawback for me). If I really like an article, I'll print it out but that gets expensive quick, so not so often. Also, a bunch of PDF files on my computer is not exactly what I would call a collection ;).

D&D Insider also (currently) offers a Rules Compendium, a set of Bonus Tools and a (beta) Character Builder; I've no real interest in the latter two online features, though I do plan on making liberal use of the Compendium.

My one beef with Insider is that subscribers must agree to auto-renew (there's no choice). If yo want cancel auto-renew, you must rely on customer service (that is, cancelation is not instantaneous and requires human interaction). The service detracts from what would otherwise be a fine effort (the articles).

Given a choice, I'd take the print magazines back.
