Re: The Almanack is Dead

Not that my approval is needed but... Hurrah! I wish you would have done it before I spent the time dissecting what I wanted out of the old boy. Should make it easier for new players to find what they want though. One topic supplements are really the best in my opinion.

Re: Expanded Ability Score Values

Re: other Basic games
