I've noticed something quite interesting with the various submissions to Knockspell Magazine over the course of five issues. This is that despite the massively wider audience of AD&D, despite the fact that Fight On! is focused on OD&D, and despite the fact that there is not a corresponding AD&D magazine, the vast majority of articles I receive have been designed and/or statted for OD&D rather than AD&D.
I suspect that one reason for this is that I've done most of my author recruiting via the Swords & Wizardry message boards (OD&D), but I have also done an equal amount of recruiting offers at Dragonsfoot and Knights & Knaves.
I can't account for it. Feel free to discuss. :)
(as long as it doesn't turn into an edition war)
PS if anyone wants to contribute to Knockspell #6, either art or articles, contact me at mythmere (at) yahoo (dot) com. I'm bringing them in now - the deadline is April 15 (which is likely to slip a bit). Monsters, magic items and spells are all welcome, adventure modules are particularly welcome, and I'm also interested in getting a few reviews of recent publications or funny convention stories. Fiendish tricks and traps are also lots of fun.
