  • Mageblade! ZERO (OSR) This game system clocks in at 32 pages, with the wrap-around cover provided as its own .png. If you take playtest thanks and editorial together, they’ll take up about half a page, and the character sheet provided similarly clocks in at about ½ a page. As a whole, one can claim that this has about 31 pages of content, which are laid out in 6’’ by 9’’ (A5)-size, meaning you can fit up to 4 pages on a sheet of paper when printing this.   This review was requested by my patreons, to be undertaken at my convenience.   Now, Mageblade Zero is a rules-lite system that could roughly be associated with the OSR games out there, […]
