Bruce Heard's "dad's" Mystara continuity production

I would like to collect all the links to Bruce's Mystara production from his blog.
I can't say it's "canon" continuity, because I'm referencing to the material that he published after he left TSR, I can't say either it's "fan" continuity, as he's much more than a Mystara fan... so I'm using the expression "dad's" continuity, as he's, in some way, the daddy of Mystara. :ugeek:

I hope maybe you (and he) maybe will help me collecting all his references and links as for sure I will make lots of mistakes. :oops:
I also hope he (maybe) will some day repackage all the scattered articles in a number of pdf each dedicated to a different kingdom of Alphatia, for more practical reading. :halo:

I actually started working on this but I was putting them all into 1 big file, with bookmarks for each kingdom, etc. It is an unfinished project for now..
If I ever finish it I was planning on sharing it here once I had obtained Bruce's permission. Otherwise it was for my own use.

My Word 365 seems to be crashing now :evil: but from memory my file was about 600-700 pages. It gets quite tedious so I think that's why I stopped at the time.

I've not used Word 365, but earlier versions of Word didn't like large files. I found it best to work on one chapter per file, convert to pdf, and then use Acrobat to 'sew' them all together.

Word 365 is crashing for everything.. but I have opened it with Word 2010.

The docx file is currently 67.3 MB, 679 pages and nearly a quarter of a million words.

I don't have Acrobat Pro. So I use Word to create all the bookmarks then save it as a pdf.

Word 365 "fixed". A quick Google-Fu indicated a clash with ABBYY Fine Reader. Removed that and it works again.

I don't know if this will help you, but Echohawk on ENWorld put up all of Bruce Heard's blog links on Mystara up through May 2013.
