Using information gathered over years, and then cut-to-fit to my house rules. Nothing is a carbon copy of any source, some of which have disappeared from the web.
Would this be "safe" to share here?

If it relies on house rules, rather than the BFRPG Core Rules, you may want to share those first, or you'll need to combine them with your equipment into one supplement.

If your info is compatible with the Equipment Emporium you could post it there.

I wouldn't say necessarily, for 2 reasons: 1. It's an already in-print item (ie basically finalized as-is), and 2. It's made of contributions from members and is material released under the OGL.
We don't know (yet) the sources for this material.

The original, unmodified material came from many games and over a dozen books and web articles, mined and refined over many years.
I don't even remember all the places I looked, but all of them were, ultimately, original sources -- for example the pipe rolls of Henry II of England. But I didn't note which translation I was using.
That is my concern, getting smacked for improper attribution.

Since I don't know where a lot of it came from ... (Sigh) filing the project.
