The official newsletter of 12 to Midnight does not have a very representative name. It's not limited to America. There's no "research". And it's not really a journal. But it IS a free, cool resource for your modern RPG campaign!
Issue 4 brings you:
~The Cradle, part 1: Bring the world of Innana's Kiss to life with this free campaign setting. Part 1 introduces the cradle of civilization, ancient Mesopotamia--perfect for fantasy gaming. Part 2 will describe the region today for modern campaigns.
~ Pinebox Places: An expansion to the free Pinebox campaign setting found on the 12 to Midnight website.
~ Paranormal Lexicon: A new feature to become a regular page in the Journal. This edition covers terms beginning with A or B.
