Leaving Soon: Hippogryph Zine

The best selling Hippogryph Zine is being discontinued. As of 1 September 2021, it will no longer be available on DriveThruRPG. The original idea was to build a system within a zine format, and then use that system as the basis for discussing various ideas and concepts related to game design. The concepts that I was playing with evolved into the Hippogryph System. It’s still a fun little stand-alone system that captures a lot of the flavor of D&D-style fantasy without all of the crunchiness.

These products have finished out their life cycles. Demand has dropped, and they have been part of the RPG Dollar Store for a while now. As we work on becoming the lo-fi publisher you deserve some of these titles, as useful as they are, do not meet our new standards of quality and design. It’s time to clear away the old to make room for the new.

Dancing Lights Press is a lo-fi publishing studio founded and operated by Berin Kinsman. One of the earliest RPG bloggers, Berin has been playing tabletop roleplaying games since 1979 and writing for the industry since 1992. Since founding the company in 2016, he has published over 100 bestselling titles. You can find Dancing Lights Press online at DancingLightsPress.com, and on Twitter as @LightsPress.

We champion the lo-fi approach to publishing. Utility of content takes precedence over ostentatious production value. Text is clear and concise. Graphic elements exist only to enhance the text. Books are compact, sturdy, and portable. This aesthetic creates toolkits that are useful and affordable. The game isn’t the book; it’s the creativity and collaboration that happens around the tabletop.
