From early 2001 through the closing of the site in May of 2008, the D20 Magazine Rack was the hosting site for a variety of free E-Zines related to roleplaying and fantasy fiction.

With the shuttering of the site, a lot of the content was lost, but like many web published items, copies remain. I used archive.org to gather much of the information about what was distributed there.

This list is sorted by the order of appearance on the D20 Magazine Rack. I've tried to indicate where items are available, but feel free to add your own information.

Additionally, if there are items I missed, please add them as an item or comment here.

Five issues were produced, primarily on fantasy D20 topics. Guest content was provided by the same folks who produced the Backara Herald and that setting as well.

Deep Magic

Deep Magic: The E-zine of High Fantasy & Science Fiction ran from June 2002 to July 2006.

To my knowledge, this periodical had no direct RPG content.

A very regular publication when active, all issues were pulled when it went offline.

A HeroClix magazine, though volume 2 branched out a little from the base line. Content was morphed into the website at http://www.heroclixworld.com/

As magazine content is not yet available on boardgamegeek, I have linked to the base game.

I have not found any issues available online.

Dice & Drama

Gone or Vaporware
"A new fan-created online magazine is on the horizon from the same creative team that brought you d20Zine! magazine. Dice & Drama is a new quarterly magazine that focuses on gaming in general and not just specifically the d20 system. It will feature articles on multiple gaming systems and provide information that will easily move across the boundaries of the many different game engines."

I have been unable to find any information on this zine, and did not download any issues. Please contact me if you have more information.
