  • Mystic Pangolin #2 (OSR) The second installment of the Mystic Pangolin ‘zine clocks in at 40 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page SRD, 1 page advertisement, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 34 pages of content, laid out in 6’’ by 9’’ (A5) digest style, meaning you can potentially fit up to 4 pages on a sheet of paper when printing this.   As in the first installment of the ‘zine, the rules-system employed would be Swords & Wizardry, though it should be noted that conversion to another OSR-system is pretty simple.
