  • Burgs & Bailiffs: Warfare, Too! (OSR) The second installment of the Burgs & Bailiffs-‘zine/series clocks in at 34 pages if you disregard ToC, the introductory explanation of how this came to be, etc. The pages are laid out for pamphlet-size (A5/6’’ by9’’), but there is a difference here that you should be aware of: While the first book sported a two-column standard regarding layout, we get a one-column standard this time around.
