InQuest, the tabletop gaming magazine published by Wizard Press, is shutting down. I wrote many articles for InQuest in its early years, enough so that I’m still on the magazine’s comp list to this day. Now, 150 issues later, it’ll be gone.
Ironically, the last issue of InQuest will ship in September, the same month that Dragon and Dungeon magazines end their run. Games Quarterly Magazine ended earlier this year. What does that leave for adventure gaming magazines in print? Between the internet eating their lunches and a rough few years for gaming, there doesn’t seem to be much room for a professionally run consumer magazine that’s not based around some sort of catalog like White Dwarf or Game Trade Magazine.
Someone tell me I’m missing something. Please.
