This reprint comes from Dragon #231 (Jan 1997) and was originally written by Bill Slavicsek & Richard Baker.
Based on the content/text it is probably the earliest mention of Alternity in Dragon Magazine, or anywhere (outside of TSR). This is mainly a nostalgic read, and offers nothing more than a look at the view held by Alternity's two foremost creators at the time of its inception. Of course, this pre-dates d20 and some terminology changed by the final release, but it is included for the sake of those who want to know "where it started".
Edit: This update adopts the 3-column magazine format and logo (which later appeared on the Limited Preview Edition of the Players Handbook) of the original.

High hopes indeed! I'm glad that the term "Rulesmaster" was dropped though.
