Dungeon Crawler Quarterly

Fantasy Adventure Role Playing in the Old Style

Dungeon Crawler Quarterly is going to be print and electronic magazine in the old style of fantasy adventure magazines from the 70s and 80s—where content was king and gamers shared fun, and inventive material with other gamers, and the art was so bad it made us all think we could be successful artists.

In this space, you will be able to find previews of articles in the print version of the magazine here as well as some cool web-only content and fascinating stuff we find in our travels. If you would like to write with us, visit jobs.cailore.com to learn how our party divides the treasure. If you are still interested after that, fill out the contact form, and we will get you started.
