Books I Dig and Books I Would Like To Make






































I've made a fair few books of late and will continue the whole project for at least a year in total of a book a month. When a big chunk or my work has been finished I can possibly retire and use my own stuff or have some volumes revised, edited and kickstarter into more substantial projects.

Xor and Planet Psychon would be highest priority for such a project to fund art and the projects properly with editing etc. Shadelport would be next with whole city mapped and maps of the bridges.

EMO house rules in one book or in bits

-Character gen, stats and basics
-basic 4 classes, demihumans, specialist classes, monster classes, outre classes
-skills and spells and equipment
-monster book
