Publication historyEdit

The magazine was started in 1994.[1] Angus Abranson was one of the forces behind the foundation of Valkyrie (1994-2004), and reported news for Valkyrie afterward while working in his position at Leisure Games.[2]:341-342 It was published by Partisan Press and edited originally by Dave Renton (original editor of Role Player Independent) and then taken over by Jay Forster. Renton held the post from 1994 to 1998 and Forster from 1999 to 2003.[1]

Some[who?] claimed that it was the successor to White Dwarf amongst the UK role-playing community,[citation needed] with numerous contributors from across the hobby, including Phil Masters and Marcus Rowland.

The magazine was resurrected as a quarterly with issue 19 and ran for several years before ceasing publication with issue 28. It folded in 2003.[1]

On the 15th of September 2019,[3] the first edition of an all new Valkyrie magazine will be released based in Australia. Details are scarce at this point in time, however the announcement of the release date, as well as some preview of its content was posted to the Official Valkyrie Facebook page on the 17th of August 2019. It is not known if this new magazine has any relation to the past magazines of the same title.[citation needed]
