Modern Dungeon Quarterly Number 1 Front Cover

Front Cover for Modern Dungeon Quarterly Number 1

Featuring a title that sounds like it began as a joke dreamed up late at night by friends chatting, the first issue of Modern Dungeon Quarterly is available as both a printed and electronic magazine.  Because I received the electronic copy immediately when I ordered the print copy, I began reading the e-book version instead of the hard copy.

The content in the first issue of Modern Dungeon Quarterly was all written by the editor, Perverted Imp.  This is not surprising as the first issue of most zines is typically the creation of one person.

This issue contains brief articles on dungeon safety, soundproofing, lighting, slippery floors, and floggers as well as the featured dungeon of the issue. To Modern Dungeon Quarterly’s credit, the writing in this issue is clear and easy to follow.  Unfortunately, none of the articles are particularly informative for anyone who has spent any time working on a home or public play space dungeon.

The print version of this issue presents well.  The paper is of good quality and the various photographs are much brighter and more detailed than the electronic version appeared.  Be aware that if you order the print version it is shipped in a clear plastic bag with the cover and magazine title visible – something to consider if you live in a small town and don’t want the mailman to know that you are kinky.

Even though the first issue of this zine is so-so, I hope that Perverted Imp continues to write and publish this zine.  If future issues expand on the themes explored in this issue this zine could become essential reading.  The covered topics would be very interesting and informative if covered in greater breadth and depth.

Copies of both the print and online version of Modern Dungeon Quarterly are available from their website at http://moderndungeonquarterly.com/.
