I'm still estimating hardback page count + map weight together to get a total weight. So, no estimate yet.

Money already set aside!  The map alone is going to be worth whatever you're charging. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/love.png

Awesome! (As long as you don't cleanse it by taking out the devils and demons etc.)

So... I found these boards. Just in time for Second Edition.

Woot!

It'll be a kinder, gentler Hyperborea, so as not to offend any soccer moms. Does anyone really play assassins and monks anyway? You'll hardly miss them. Plus, check out our new d10 initiative system.

Ba(atezu)hahaha! I hope there will be no ta(n)arr'i-ing in making Second Edition splatbooks.

EDIT: Every time I see your name/screen name, Dave, I am reminded of our talk about using the name "Damp Rat Alley" in that section of Yggsburgh that we weren't sure was mine or yours. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/cool.png

Ha! I remember Damp Rat Alley. I deeply regret not finishing the Mixed Company District. Gary, on the other hand, was quite relieved not to be saddled with that particular appellation for his unnamed alley. Maybe we can work it into Khromarium somewhere... http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/cool.png

Heh. That (Damp Rat Alley in Khromarium) would be cool.

I regret it, as well. I regret that I could not finish because of my first wife's declining health but more so that (with a couple of exceptions) *no one* could finish because of the events after Gary's passing. I would have loved to have seen all the cool stuff we were discussing on the old TLG "hidden" boards.

Selfishly, I wish I could have seen how my successor finished my paltry attempt at writing Rivergate.
