For those of you who didn’t see the Dead Lands update forum list below, I’m assembling a team to help finish the Secrets of the Dead Lands book for general use:
What’s more, based on the discussions from the forum, we’re not just formatting the book, but finding ways to resolve the inconsistencies and incomplete bits of the work, as well as ensure consistency between it and the Dead Lands of Athas Ebook project that’s already been in circulation for more than a decade.
This is an opportunity to complete one of the last big puzzle pieces of the known world of Athas. Obviously, this is too much for one person to do alone. Besides, it belongs to all of us, so I’d like to give anyone who is keen on helping the chance to take part.
So I’d like to put out an open call to the group, asking if anyone wants to help.
In particular, there are a few key areas where I just won’t have the time to put any work into myself. Specifically:
1.) Proofreading, making sure the book is readable, and organised in a sane way.
2.) Checking the rules, NPC and monster stats.
3.) Checking for conceptual inconsistencies.
4.) Conversion form 2e to later editions. (Not as high a priority as the other bits, but still important)
5.) Helping with maps (the large one is already under works, but we need help with smaller area maps and adventure maps)
6.) Generating original imagery and illustrations
Would anyone else be willing to help out? If so, send me a personal message.
