  1. Alarums and Excursions

    Alarums and Excursions is an amateur press association started in June 1975 by Lee Gold. It was the first publication to focus solely on role-playing games. Each issue is a collection of contributions from different authors, often featuring game design discussions, rules variants, write-ups of game sessions, reviews, and comments on others contributions. It was a four-time winner of the Charles Roberts/Origins Award, winning "Best Amateur Adventure Gaming Magazine" in 1984, "Best Amateur Game Magazine" in 1999, and "Best Amateur Game Periodical" in 2000 and 2001. Although game reports and social reactions are common parts of many A&E contributions, it has also, over the years, become a testing ground for new ideas on the development of the RPG as a genre and an art form.

The January, 2009 collation of Alarums and Excursions was #400. Over the years, contributors have included:
