The Even More Magic & Mayhem netbook has been almost finished
for some time now. To help get it finished Greywolf (of the WoWRPG website greywolf.com) has put the document out for a public proofreading and testing:http://greywolf.critter.net/wow.htm
Here is the latest update, as of today:
Hello! I just wanted to drop you a note to let you know that the EMM&M.pdf document has been slightly updated since your last email. Fabrice Egal (a French WoW fan) made a very diligent reading-through of the document, listing layout and typographical errors (complete with page numbers - what more could I ask for?) way back in March, and it was only now that I finally managed to find the time to comb through and make all the changes as per his notes. Most of the issues are minor layout tweaks (not affecting game content), but there were a couple of spells with glitched descriptions, some tables (table 6-7 for steam armor, in particular).
There was also the matter of making the match-up beteen energy types and elements more consistent with d20 standards for shamans (e.g., before, EMM&M claimed that fire = fire, water = cold, earth = electricity, and air = sonic; now, earth = acid and air = electricity though the "sonic resistance totem" is still classified as earth for lack of a better place to put it).
Plus, I did a bit of clean-up in the InDesign file to remove some needless elements, so the final file size is down to about 20 MB, instead of 24 MB. I guess that's pretty small potatoes in the big scheme of things, but it took a lot of work to get the file size smaller without reducing the image quality any further, so I'll trumpet it anyway.
Regretfully, my stated "to-do" list for layout issues is much the same as last time, but at least it's still some small progress.
Anyway, the file link is still the same: http://greywolf.critter.net/wow.htm
More about EMM&M:
Even More Magic & Mayhem is a fan-made netbook contributed to by frequenters and fans of the White Wolf Games World of Warcraft RPG forums. No infringement is intended upon the trademarks, copyrights or other properties of White Wolf Games, Sword & Sorcery Studios, Blizzard Entertainment, or Wizards of the Coast.
It is presented in its incomplete, "beta" format, as a free PDF download for players of the World of Warcraft RPG, using version 3.5 d20 rules.
Please report any errors, editing glitches, etc., you see in the EMM&M Beta to me at mecha AT gate DOT net, and please include mention of "EMM&M" or "Warcraft" in the subject line so I can have a better chance of picking your message out of all of the daily spam. Generic subjects such as "hello" or "hi there" or "question" are likely to get overlooked.
Special thanks to Jeff Moller and Fabrice Egal for help in proofreading for errors in the EMM&M document.
As I said in the [resource] Warcraft RPG fan netbooks
thread, this is the first of three fan netbooks. So it looks like errata checking may be holding up two equally cool netbooks.
If you like World of Warcraft RPG, please download this netbook and email any errors to the email address on the above page.
