    Oh, sorry! Thought I picked it up exactly as you wrote it.

    Will fix that soon along with some further improvements. Grabbed Open Office last night but didn't give it a try yet.

    What do you think about writing a short introduction for each chapter?

    Update coming soon.

    Holy carp! I just took a look at this and I have to say it's an amazing resource, A. Thanks a billion for sharing this with the community. Not only is it great for use with mapping but also for writing - all those list of gems, stones, metals, trees... excellent.

    And Moe, not taken a look at your revised version yet but I'll check it out after lunch. But cheers for spending the time to make it more accessible.

    As for ideas on things to add... the only thing I noticed was that in your "Water" section at the start you have things like strait but not the basic things like: sea, ocean, gulf, bay. Unless I missed them. It's worth knowing the difference for map labelling.

    Thanks ;-) - check out chapter 1.5 in the new version to find the terms you've mentioned.

    Changes in version 0.3:
    • Cover page edited
    • Added chapter numeration
    • formatting issues erased
    • Ascensionz name corrected ;-)
    • some technical changes

    I will delete the older versions within this thread and link to the new one.
    Hope you all enjoy!

    Wow, I just looked at this for the first time. That is a ton of information and I want to add my word of thanks to you for putting this all together and sharing. It's a good reference for Game Masters as well because you are probably building a world as well.

    Thanks again! (and to you Moe for polishing the look)

    Moe - I'll look at the chapters as you have them and see if can come up with something. Don't hold your breath that it will be soon because I'm still reacquiring everything that I lost last week with the hard drive meltdown.

    Ramah - those things were there, I'll see if they got axed.

    Jax - I build a world with every map, shrug. Other than that, nope. I'm an idea-man so I like to gather ideas and info and just strange tidbits that make cool story lines, art pieces, or game hooks. I've always wanted to write an epic thing but I never got past the "someday I'm going to do this..." stage. But for those of you who are writers or GMs, this is meant to give you ideas you might need if you get stuck. The alchemy section will be most important once I finish detailing all of those flowers and minerals and things.

    Take your time, Ascension - so I'll have more to concentrate on mapping

    Wasn't axed - you'll find it in chapter 1.5

    Wow, this is a really awesome resource. Thanks Ascension for the time you spent writing this. Thanks to Moe for converting this to the really nice PDF. Rep to you both.

    Now I am just waiting for the GIMP brush pack.
