Unfortunately, 11 hour days, being on call throughout most the night and generally busting my ass at work and maintaining my relationships doesn't leave me a whole lot of time. One of the things I wanted to do to keep myself on track was to finish up the spell list which had been a perpetual thorn in my side for quite some time. Expect a post explaining spell casting soon. Creating rather than editing really enlivened me and has given me some semblance of hope that I'll get this done on time. Well, I have faith in my layout editor, we'll see what he comes up with.
In the follow-up post to this I'll be putting up an excerpt from the books Introduction explaining the name of this book patterned after numerous other retroclones that came before it.
