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


I like that idea - have a pure background book, and all the stats collected in one place in the same format. Stats get revised more often than background and it's a pain remembering where the current version of the different bits of rules text is.

It also allows for an annual /bi-annual stat update with things like the new character options from the Almanac, that dioesn't require a re-write of an entire book.

Yes Dan we know.

But with all the recent efforts I would have thought you would be a little less defensive. Hote fleshes out the background the cities, the politics and LRP shapes how those are seen in the world and reality.

Even more so we have our own system background and culture not stolen from other games or sources.

LRP does give cities background and flesh like the new Drowe stuff Stuart did. But so does HoTE. There is no difference between Stuart changing the Drowe on a set of dungeons and Alan changing PM through turns. It all adds and compliments each other.

More history and current events, less stats. Please please keep all the interesting background stuff and timelines - it's a constant source of inspiration and information that helps flesh out backgrounds and link together adventures into a cohesive gameworld rather than a collection of pocket planes doing their own thing.

Discussions some time ago came to the conclusion that it would be far better to split the stat stuff into their own books and have all the background stuff elsewhere. This seemed a good thing especially as I quickly realised that there really is a huge wealth of stuff out there and it would be jam packed.

Using the template I developed for recent publications Mark actually put together a book with the stat stuff decanted into that (A proto races book) I'm not sure what happened to it though. It certainly deserves publication at some point.

That said its about time Divine Guidance was updated - which can be done relatively easily. Church of Mortai and Church of Iron and Empire being obvious ones to get some updated entries and no doubt Elbereth could be expanded on into a book of its own now!

PS ~ Time to plug the website for Deci background stuff, its relatively constantly being added to. Hmm, now there is a city that could probably go to a whole sourcebook of its own for background...

Can the noble statuses be re-written so that they no longer give out of date HOTE / SOTE benefits but something useful instead?

What? And run the risk that my Noble's Spend isn't (un)officially the worst spend ever?

Indeed I did a few years ago seperate all the source material out and have a 'source book' and 'stats book' -
It got messy because there are some things that ought to go with the source material - eg Noble Status' etc

I have 'Races of the Empire' book - doesn't anyone else? ph34r.gif

I believe the plan was scuppered when I realised I dont have a Dominion of the Circle / Land of the Seven Winds Book in Word.

If there genuinely is no source file around for either of these, I can OCR them for you (with the copyright holder's permission) - it'd only take an hour or so each. It'd cost you naught but a favour. ph34r.gif

Which would be somewhat easiser to handle than continuing to retype them.

Most definitely so...! Although someone would need to scan through and correct the occasional error.

I assume the copyright holder for DotC is Jan, since it says "© Mannerism" - there's no such explicit statement on LotSW, but I'm guessing the same? I'd prefer to get an explicit permission to do so, before going ahead...

I'm happy to take suggestions - either here or via email -

Ideally i'd like the published cost to remain the same - so something that fits into those costs.


For what its worth I have checked through stuff I have a written races book - Primal Gatherins [probably a BBB title] it has Nightsoil, Angelkin, and Demonkin in it - all deleted now though sanity has returned - and i drink a lot less these days...

Yeah - well I have that thing on my new shinney black box - but i'm wary as it was what was done to recover the old supplements and I spent an age uncoupling and changing the spelling mistakes that occured - hall-troll was my favourite - certainly set my brain thinking.
