    Is there a reason the table of contents for this issue is apparently listed nowhere on the internets?

    This is a sort of frustratingly opaque model of a magazine you’ve got here.

      The contents were listed in a previous post about this issue and in all the excitement of the premier release, I just forgot to include them here. But it’s fixed now!

    Ah, okay, you have to click through to DriveThruRPG to see the TOC.

    It would be helpful if the google search “worlds without master issue 1 table of contents” turned up anything useful, though, you know?
