Interesting resource idea, but this:

(emphasis mine) absolutely gives this a big red flag. I'd love to see a review - I'm wary of someone else's "topics" and find it ludicrous that consulting entries alphabetically requires any "hunting" at all.

Perhaps my predilection for wordiness and archaic language predisposes me to a familiarity with regular thesauri (sp.?).

Who are the authors?


Chenault (Troll Lord Games) says it's James M. Ward (Metamorphoses Alpha, Pool of Radiance etc.) and Anne K. Brown (Pool of Radiance etc.). Both worked at / for TSR Hobbies back in the day iirc. I'm positive about Ward, Brown I think... definitely co-author of that series of books with Ward and I'm pretty sure employed at TSR. It's been awhile :)

is this a hardback edition?

I know the kickstarter mentioned BOTH hard and softcovers, so wanted to make sure

It's listed as a softcover.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Is the PDF text-searchable?

I already own the hardcover but a text-searchable edition would be fantastically useful.
