This third printing has produced far fewer groans and slashes of the red pencil. Perhaps it's simply that she's older and lacks the energy to perform rants at her previous intensity. The only really cute comment she made this time was on the poison chart. It went something like this:
Poison doesn't have an AFFECT, it has an effect. If it had an affect it would be affected, thus sporting an affectation.
*scritchityscritch* went the red pencil.
As for me, I have had absolutely no impulse to carve up a mechanically delicious set of rules over some possibly questionable uses of the English language. The Troll Lords have no doubt already heard more than enough about employing proofreaders and mistrusting spell-check functions.
I LOVE the latest printing. Continued improvements in the structure of the information have made it an increasingly useful reference book. The higher clay content in the paper has imparted a fine gloss to the sheets and made a volume that is both thinner and more elegant than the previous incarnations. The alterations to the cover are equally appealing. I'm looking forward to the next M&T printing and the release of the CKG.
I'm extremely pleased with what Troll Lord Games has been doing (including the gradual improvements with each printing). I particularly delight in Gary Gygax releasing his Zagyg campaign within the context of these most elegant rules. Alas, Wizards has jumped in with a pending August release of their dreaded Expedition to the Ruins of Greyhawk , but I personally consider that an act of desperation and a crass attempt to glut the market before the true masterpiece can be fully conjured. I'm saving myself for the real thing.
In any event, huzzah! Bravo! Keep it up!
