Any chance you could turn that into a nifty PDF for printing? I'd love to stick it in my Freeport Pathfinder book!

I don't have any plans at this time to make my blogs available in PDF. Maybe if I set up a Patreon someday, I could? I know at least one game designer who collects each month's posts into a PDF for his Patreon supporters.
