Other Minds Magazine has now "launched" the new version of the website. Lots of new functionality improvements. We currently do not have any artwork added, and welcome any submissions.

This is a magazine with strong emphasis on scholarly quality content, presented so as to be accessible and usable for both non-gaming Tolkien enthusiasts and role playing gamers alike.
