As editor of Lone Warrior, I am honored to kick off this blog with a question. “What content do solo wargamers want from a publication dedicated to their needs and desires?” The answers to that question are probably equal to the number of solo gamers who respond, rugged individualists that we are.
Lone Warrior attempts to offer an extensive variety of content from scenarios to techniques, as well as to appeal to a wide variety of periods and scales. However, we have always been limited to what our writers send in.
Lone Warrior is currently a hard-copy quarterly journal of 50 pages without ads. The cost of postage drives up the cost of the magazine, hopefully not putting it out of reach of soloists. In the glorious days of Magweb.com, Lone Warrior was most often in fourth place of over 100 Internet wargaming and history magazines, so our writers knew they were doing something right.
Now, this blog initiates the first web presence of Lone Warrior in several years. So, my question remains and I invite your responses, what can we do to make Lone Warrior useful, interesting, and valuable to you, the solo gamer?
