SJ Games Launches Online d20 Magazine – First Four Issues Free!
On July 3, just in time for Origins, the publisher of the award-winning Pyramid will launch another online zine . . . d20 Weekly.
d20 Weekly is the only professional online magazine for the d20 System.

Our industry news is updated immediately, whenever a d20-related story breaks, and new reviews and articles are posted every Wednesday.
The new zine will feature:
- News – find out what's coming for d20.

- Reviews – what's hot and what's not, and why!
- Comics – a special edition of "Absurd Notions," by Kevin Pease, with a new strip every week.
- Articles and adventures – lots of features every gaming group can use.
- Archives – every article and review from Issue 1 onward will remain online and searchable.
