By retaining the history, preserving events of the last 10 years and adding rather than replacing/rewriting. don't publish the current state of play, this might sound controversial in a sourcebook, but the current state of play is already present in the forums and in adventures. Just provide history. Stuff whicvh has happened, stuff which isnt going to change.

Extending the Time Lines of stuff could be real cool.

A mix of Heroes and LRP events would be neat.

- Rewrite the city descriptions - not the history, but the current state stuff.

- More primal physics, just with a clearer "this is what you know Ic / OOC" split attached smile.gif

- something on the eth'Aderach & Lauiu for those of us who have forgotten.

- A glossary of IC terms.

- A better map

Ratfolk are nothing like as bad as "oh no they're not really bad, just angst-filled and misunderstood" undead.
Undead should be guilt-free cannon fodder, not people.

Getting back on track,

Myron needs to be written/re-written, and Rob/Giles probably have some Oelhave stuff from the Laundry Myths.

There are 2 things I'd like to see...

A bigger type face so that the miopic amongst us can actually read the book

and a Standardised format for the way classes are written out. It's weird to have to scan a page looking for Max AC when it should really be written in the same place every time.

Mr Cox I can send you the template for the New Version of Realm of Glass that I've been sporadically working on should you wish.

It was however desigend as pure sourcebook (in a Divine Guidance style) and had none of the stat stuff.

It was also updated with the "Imperial Cultural" stuff garnered from articles Alan Morgan wrote for the Companion.

But can we make it actually right? What we experience in LRP is whats right, not necessarily what goes in heroes

Define "right"? The cultural stuff is the stuff that provides back drop, which with all the CC work will become more and more entwined with how different parts of the Empire is viewed. The current stuff listed in the Realm of Glass is quite dated now, we've had ten years worth of dungeons set on Primus and 10 years worth of Heroes turns. All of which have contributed to bring things forward.

Once Refs use the CC facilities general settings for dungeons will quickly become more and more unified. For example it was really cool that three Bildteve dungeons I was involved in recently had near identical descriptions of the same location from three different referees. Normally you'd expect three totally different takes on the basic descriptions.

The cultural stuff is stuff about Imperial Structure, The Peons, The Noblility and so on (the kind of stuff in the Gameworld section here)
