B/X Essentials: Update and Core Rules Cover

A couple of updates on my B/X Essentials project:

Firstly, the basic content (text and charts) for the second book in the series, B/X Essentials: Classes and Equipment, is now complete! The document is available to view online here. Like the first book, my aim has been to compile and collate the information in as usable a way as possible. Some sections have been massively clarified, when compared to the original B/X rules. See the sections on water vessels and castle construction, for example, which were pretty vague, confusing, and even contradictory, in the original Expert rule book.

Secondly, in preparation for publication next month, the cover for the first book, B/X Essentials: Core Rules, is done! The beautiful, colourful illustration is from the hallowed hand of Andrew Walter.

    1. Weird. I re-uploaded the image with the typo fixed, shortly after making the post. Thanks for pointing it out, though ;)

    1. Great! I should be receiving the proof copies this week so, if all looks good, it should be available in print by the weekend.
