I hope all our regular scribes as well as the visitors to these halls really do enjoy this new and amazine issue of the Compendium. It's composed of some of the most well-crafted fan-based Realmslore I've ever read.

As an aside though, Big Al, might I suggest that we create a *sticky* comments scroll for this second issue to keep our discussion tied to the specific issue that was released...

Those are partially my fault. I basically skipped over the Journal in the first volume, because at the time I didn't think it appopriate to edit what was supposed to be an on-the-fly, written-as-time-permits kind of journal.

Hopefully, you won't find any such errors in the rest of Volume 1, or at all in Volume 2.

I still have to read the second volume :-) I have another request: make it copiable. Presently, it is not possible to select a line of text and copy it.

Voilà, au revoir

That's very odd... When doing the editing, I usually copied and pasted from the PDF without a problem.

Maybe should I have mentionned I'm using Preview.app, the Mac OS X built-in (and very fast) application for visualising PDF.

Oh maybe I was just clumsy.

Ah. That case, I can't help you. I'm a Windows person, and I stick with Adobe for reading PDFs.

You could check the Adobe website -- I'd be surprised if there wasn't a version of Reader available for the Mac.

I like programming Macs. They give me an Apple if I do a good enough job .

Having said that, maybe I can help. Have you had any further problems David?

There is, or rather, there was. I believe a new update is already on the way...

I modified my Mac for case-sensitiveness. It normally works very well except for a couple of ill-programmed apps wich doesn't support case-sensitiveness (so far it had always been apps where the programmers get lazy and just use upper- or lowercase in complete fantasy in their soft).

It seems Adobe Reader is such an app. I'm on Tiger (latest Mac version).

I checked again for the copy and paste: it was wetware error :-) Eveything works fine. Sorry for false bug report (the typo thing still apply, though).

Dear venerable scribes,
This time I'm writing on behalf of official polish D&D website www.dnd.polter.pl (of which I'm the viceboss or whatever You wish to call it). I want to ask You for permission to translate Your Candlekeep Compendium to polish and publish it on our site as a pdf file. Our site is absolutely non-commercial so we won't be receiving any profits from Your work. Thanks in advance for Your answer!
P.S. From my part I would like to help the Compendium somehow so if there is a need for any interior graphics just give me a sign. I will be glad to help.

Indeed. I echo the words of Hammer...

Even though I didn't contribute anything for this issue, we are always curious as to your thoughts regarding the material within each of the latest issues, and all the issues released before them.

Happy reading!

Decemberish, but we decided the next one is going to be related to dragons in some way. :)

For some of us, books are as important as almost anything else on earth. What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet and excite you... Books are full of the things that you don't get in real life - wonderful, lyrical language, for instance, right off the bat. - Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird

Hmmm I dont really have anything Dragon related siting in my Candlekeep folder. The closest would be the Gem Dragon stuff Ive developed for my Jhaamdath article but Im hesitant to seperate it from the rest of th article as it would loose alot of its context

If it looks like we'll be running short on content for this themed issue, you might want to re-consider Dargoth.

Such a feature would make a great article for the Compendium. You can still tie it into your other work with Jhaamdath later, when you finish that.

Hmm I guess I could do a "Dragons of the North" style article for a single Gem Dragon, theres a Great Wyrm Saphhire Draon working with the Sword of the Drowned.

Again....outstanding!

Hammer's Stroke - hasn't failed to impress me yet! I love reading about the little fella's and i'm always thinking what the next article will be about. So, what WILL the next one be about No, no, don't tell me, I like surprises

Laborer's - Great stuff. This is just the sort of thing i'm after actually. I prefer NPC entries like this - more background, less stats.

Untold Stories - The best yet!! Nuff said

Earling's Spray - Perfect! I've been hoping for a sea-based article and even more so since reading Queen of the Depths recently. Also, i've been delving into Pirates of the Inner Sea and Sea of Falling Stars so this is just what I need! Great work (and nice lookin too!)

Mysteries of the Creator Races - I am only part way through this one but so far it is extremely interesting. I had never really read much on the creator races and the detail and flavour of this is excellent. Good work. Will there be follow up articles on the other races in future compendiums?

Mercenaries - Again, I love this set of articles from back in the first compendium. The variety of these is very welcoming and the detail is very well thought out. This one in particular appeals even moreso as I love Lisa Smedman's yuan-ti trilogy. I hope to work some of these companies into my campaign over time.

Olostin's Hold - Ya know, the articles from this particular series are my cup of tea. (It's nice having them at the end of the compendium too, being a nice warm ending ) Everytime I read these, I feel completely drawn in, like i've actually been there! This place was very interesting. Will there be a part 2 to this one or does the journey continue elsewhere?

So as a summary - fantastic!! Don't ever give up on this, guys. I have yet to see a better, more dedicated publication of realmslore on the web. My hat goes off to you all for what you put into this.

You should see some of the ideas we've all got planned for Issue IV Rad . There's truly some great material coming. I'm sure you're going to enjoy each and every piece that's included.

Every article starts with an idea, and then gets out of hand from there. I never know where I'll end up once I start. There is so much information out there, so its easy to keep coming up with ideas based off of all the lore.
Not to give it away, but there is a theme for the next Compendium, and it's not Dungeons(go with the other word).

Hello-

Well - I just finished reading through CC3 last night, after having read CC1 & CC2 previously.

I wouild like to say - that I am truly impressed!

No, really - this is some great stuff -a nd I'm just surprised that you are not on CC50 by now! LOL

Anyway - a deepest bow to all involved - great stuff - and keep up the good work!

As far as specifics - I will try and comment later - but sufice it to say that a lot of it may wriggle itself into my game-in-planning.

I do have one curious question - Do a lot of you hold the planes as a special and dear place? :) It seems that there was a lot of planar-related articles - as well as connections in other articles. Not that there is anything wrong with the planes - its just that having read all 3 CC's back to back - it was something I picked up on.

As for suggestions or other improvements - just two - one serious,a nd one somewhat silly.

1) Please consider numbering the pages - so that finding articles based on the table of contents would be slightly simpler.

2) Make the next CC longer.

I'll l;eave it to you all to decide which was the serious one and which one was the silly one! :)

BRAVO!

Dhomal

I am collecting the D&D Minis. I would be more than willing to trade with people. You can send me a PM here with your email listed - and I can send you my minis list. Thanks!

Successfully traded with Xysma!

A bit late in replying, but still a thanks for the compliments on the Compendium and in specific to the Scribe's Apprentice articles. As to your question on a sequel: Yes, it is currently slated for V along with an article on Feast of the Moon, and planned for issue VI is a return to Berdusk. More I will not say, it is rumored that Alaundo will invoke NDAs
