Hello Ronin Warriors/Yoroiden Samurai Trooper fans!

First off, you are all awesome! The amount of interest in this project has been unbelievable--it's amazing to see so many people reaching out and wanting to take part. There's a lot of love for this series, and it's great that we can come together to make something that shows it. Thank you!

1. More Communication Methods

So we've got e-mail, tumblr, deviantart, and our own website...where else can we be reached?

Now we've got Discord! Feel free to friend me at emwing#2957. I may not appear online, but I will see notifications via my phone and will answer any questions asap.

The fanzine project is also being advertised on Twitter! If you've got a twitter account and a few seconds, click the link and to help advertise with a retweet.

My fingers are crossed that these will help keep everyone up to date on the project. Let me know if you have any questions or require a specific communication method not yet listed here, and I'll do my best to accommodate you!

2. Project stats

Who likes a pie chart? I do! Here's one showing the estimated art, prose, and photo stats:

Fanzine Stats

Neat, right? Okay, maybe not. But at least we can get a general idea that the zine's make up is mostly comprised of art. We've got 11 weeks to go, so this can easily change, especially since more and more people are reaching out to sign up! I suppose we'll just have to wait and see!

3. Bio Ideas

A participant had a great question about their bio: aside from advertising where to find the participant online, what else should be included? Here are some suggestion questions that may help fill up the bio:

  • Why and/or how you got into this fandom?
  • What has kept you an avid fan all this time?
  • Who's your favorite/least favorite character, episode, or quote from the show?
  • For the artists, what is your favorite media to work in?
  • For the cosplayers, how did you create your cosplay or is there something you wish you'd known before making them?
  • For the writers, which character, genre, or person (first or third) is your favorite/least favorite to write in?

For the bio, feel free to write about the Ronin Warriors universe since that is really how most of us first got into it. Most importantly, have fun with it.

And don't forget to create an avatar to be printed alongside your bio. Visit the site for the details.

Submission Deadline:

So, to sum it all up:

  • Discord and Twitter are open for communication.
  • So far the fanzine is mostly art, but that can change!
  • In your bios, try writing about your connection with the series along with where fellow fans can find you.
  • Just eleven weeks left until the submission deadline:
