Supplements Anthology?

Post Sun Jan 11, 2015 11:21 pm

I was wondering if there was a need for this? Similar to our Adventure Anthology but maybe take the best of or most popular supplements and make a printed book from them? I'm just thinking out loud here.. don't really have a dog in this fight but thought it might be useful to have a printed version of some of these..

I'd be down for one, especially the extra classes.

Early on that was how the supplements were started, but it was too unwieldy and not everyone wanted the same stuff grouped together, not to mention that we have multiple supplements for some of the same things, ie Rangers, Barbarians, etc.. But who knows, now that we have so many items in print Chris may return to the idea of One Supplement To Rule Them All.

I don't think these will ever see print. If you want one in print, take the ODFs you like, put them together and make a private project on Lulu.

In order to maintain all the supplement as much free as possible this kind of print should be avoided as to not put one supplement "above" any other, that's the same reason why most supplement won't ever reach the Download page.

As Chii said, nothing prevents an author (or a team of them) to create a specific set of Supplement and upload it to be printed on demand on one of the several pages used for the BF books.

Well not to offend anyone we can always do like we did with the Adventure Anthology and take a FIFO approach. I can understand why Chii doesn't like the idea.. He would have to edit all of them LOL

But I guess putting them together in a single ODT/PDF would work..

I would like to have a supplement book, but in the same time, it will be very hard to decide what would be included and what wouldn't...

I've actually been working on just this for my own game. I've got a bunch of the supplements stitched together into on 70-pp ODT file. Hoping to give it a quick polish, and then printing it out for my campaign binder.

While the idea seems good on paper, I would rather build my own game of the existing supplements. Once you get an anthology out it will give the false impression that this is an official expansion and somehow needed.
