Regrettably I have neither time,motivation or the layout skills. Mine was very much a joint enterprise with Kevin Bracey.
The torch has passed.
And you both did such a good job that nobody else dares attempt the next issue.
Dan Hembree did an amazing job on his 5 issues. It would be lovely to see Trollszine regenerate, but even without that there is also loads of great T&T stuff happening. I think we played our part in the T&T renaissance that happened once Ken retired from his day job, and the Fellowship of the Troll reunited.
Very excited that Prof Gremlin is working on something. Happy to try to provide some small amount of help to any new editor - copy editing/articles/sharing my old contacts.
I have fumbled in my stewardship of TrollsZine! 9, and it's past time to acknowledge that I'm not the right troll to serve as editor.
There were signs that it wouldn't work out at this time in my life. I feel embarassed that I ignored the writing on the wall, and for not exploring ways to set this right earlier.
I owe you all an apology for failing to turn things over to another editor. But no one deserves it more than the creators who sent me their submissions for the 'Zine; the evangelists who spread the call for articles-and-support near and far; and everyone who volunteered for the under-appreciated work of copy editing, layout, and other tasks that make the 'Zine possible.
I specifically want to give thanks to Burraggha, Stefan Jones, Dhonn, Ira Gossett, Mari Volmar, Simon Tranter, ProfGremlin, and Zanshin for the concrete submissions and support. And to Mahrundl, Khaboom, Shades, Bud, ElvenScribe, Mosker, and Gwindel for your offers of support. I hope I didn't miss anyone!
I acknowledge it was a mistake failing to fess up sooner that the reins of TrollsZine! should be passed to someone else, and I sincerely apologize.
I will gather the content and documentation I have, to pass along to the next TrollsZine! editor. I estimate it will take me a few weeks, and should be done no later than 23 June 2017. ProfGremlin has offered to take delivery of the package until a new editor is selected.

I agree with Zanshin, Gaptooth - You have a unique spin on T&T and a fantastic imagination to unleash upon unsuspecting players delvers. I hope to see more of your thoughts, ideas and musings here on the 'Bridge. We are all the richer for them.
I'll have the deep-fried battered pixie with balrog dipping sauce and a Hobgoblin ale.
