In addition to all the work progressing in the Races & Cultures, and Magic in Middle-earth book, I have begun progress on a Creatures of Middle-earth book for Ea d20 3.5 Mostly just orcs and trolls detailed so far, but placeholders for all the rest. I also have made progress in adapting Ea d20 to AD&D 1st edition, AD&D 2nd edition, & D&D 4th edition.
For those of you interested in d20 3.5 spell casting in Middle-earth, I just made a large number of updates...
I have just put together a new group willing to play in Middle-earth (and beyond) using the Ea d20 3.5 rules, Races & Cultures, Character Sheets, and Magic in Middle-earth. This means a lot of updates are now happening for this variant of Ea RPG, and will continue to happen over the coming months thanks to very useful feedback from this group.
Another old email to look at implementing some ideas from....
I came across an old short discussion between Osric and myself on the email list, and I wanted to make a note here to remind myself to integrate his wonderful suggestions into the next rules draft... Thanks Os!
I am going through and cleaning up hundreds of formatting issues, and greatly updated the previously anemic Indexes. Also removing Umli and Umitic. And generally just giving it another major pass, though there will still be much to come back to, this should make it much more readable and usable. Will hopefully be ready to upload shortly.
I've decided to remove the ICE MERP legacy of "Umli" from the Ea d20 Races & Cultures. Anyone have any significant protest about this?
Here is the current draft of the Table of contents so far (still many more changes on the way). Hopefully the titles of the sections alone give some ideas to folks on how it is developing. More coming soon, comments welcomed.
Last week I made a lot of progress on the Ea RPGS Standard Rules, and made some updates on the Basic Rules...
