Summary

Adventurer was a general gaming magazine, covering broadly the same topics as White Dwarf. Articles covered fanzines, play by mail games, scenarios and general articles of interest to gamers, such as the pioneering "More Deadly than the Male" a series on the role of women in fantasy gaming that ran from issue 6 to issue 10. The magazine also published a lot of short fiction, most notably several short stories by Brian Lumley, including reprinting in two parts the comic book adaption of "Return to Arkham" that had appeared in the fifteenth issue of Dagon Magazine.
