Looking good James. I can't wait to get the first issues.
What is the SL in the stat blocks? I realize that it's a "trade" level, but what does it mean to the game?
For instance, Celebglin the Steward has SL Military 6. Is there a list of categories in which Military is included? And what exactly is the 6 telling me?

SL is Social Level, and the "Military" portion is the Social Class or Caste.
Judges Guild started out long ago with social classes and levels as being an integral part of the City State setting. Added a whole different level of interplay between PCs and NPCs. It didn't matter if you were a 12th level fighter who had slain three trolls and a dragon, if you were just an SL General 5 ("Citizen") that 1st level fighter who was SL Nobility 5 ("Page") got better service, and his word was taken before yours in any civilized setting. It was a VERY important factor when dealing with the constabulary or when in court or when seeking an audience with the Overlord.
Each of the three main regions published (Roglaras, Viridistan, Tarantis) had its own range of social classes and levels. These will be continued in WoHA, though I've changed a few of them around and added more details here and there. Each Player's Guide will have details on the social classes and levels of the region.
Note that NPCs and PCs wouldn't use the "class level" system, they'd be known by a title. SL Military 6, for example, in the original chart is a "Man-at-Arms." SL Gentry 9 is a "Magistrate," SL Noble 10 is a "Count" and so forth.
Hmmm... Maybe I should whip up the SL Guide for the Roglaras as a preview iteml it is the baseline from which all others are derived. I'll see if I can fit that in the schedule this week...

It was my complete inability to understand much of AGP #1 that got me to read the Player's Guide to the Wilderlands. I also just purchased and read the C&C phb. Now AGP #1 is starting to make some sense.

Perhaps it would help yourself and others if I included a page or two in each issue that included some definitions of Wilderlands/Judges Guild specific terms and such, like SL and whatnot... Maybe a mini-map of the Wilderlands like used to be in every issue of Pegasus...

A C&C Players Guide to the Wilderlands would be great, especially if he does all the charts, tables, etc... like in the original version.

Just another idea I had - maybe you could do a regular feature - 'The Player's Guide to the Wilderlands', giving new or existing readers the basics of the setting without making them refer to the Necro Player's Guide. And explain about weather, seasons, BCCC, where the City-State is and all that.

Rhu if you find the boxed set for a good price, say $30 or less, get it. I like the Wilderlands and how Necromancer did it enough to own 3 copies. At Amazon prices, and the first one at full price so I got the PDF for free.
