Slingshot number 267 coming soon
The Society of Ancients have announced that issue 267 of Slingshot has been sent to the printers.
From their announcement:
The latest issue of Slingshot (number 267, November 2009), the bi-monthly publication of the Society of Ancients, has (finally, once again) gone to the printers; given the holiday season it may not arrive with subscribers until early January.
This issue is 60 pages long, not including the cover pages. It’s published in the same format introduced with issue 258.
The contents of Slingshot 267 are as follows. For games articles, I’ve indicated the relevant rule set where it’s not immediately obvious from the title; with historical articles I’ve tried to indicate period if a similar issue applies.
