Just dropping in to let all y'all know that I've been working on the oldest work in the current iteration of my various rules systems, the Book of Magic. As a part of my attempt to fix the Pronoun Problem in all of my many works, I've cleaned up most of what I've written, but I hadn't yet gotten to the Book. The reason was that I have been wanting to completely overhaul the roster of spells one can use via the Book, and wanted to perform both tasks at once.
However! Since I've covered everything else save for the ridiculously huge Powers document, it seemed high time to go through the Book and get its text up to snuff. And this, this I have done. Of course, the benefit of putting eyes on the text again is that I've found a bunch of things I could do to improve the text overall, tightening up my grammar and breaking out the thesaurus to minimize the use of repetitive words as much as is possible.
I have yet to get around to the spell roster, since I have to decide what stays and what goes, and then what gets added in, but I figured I'd let you know that the Book is now on my radar once more, in case either of these issues were keeping you away from this thing. Hopefully, by the time I'm done, I'll have all the unique school spell lists filled in, as well as having greatly expanded the 'common' pool of magic everyone can draw upon.
Though I'll probably build out the 4C System: Edition 13 version of the Book first. I THOUGHT I had done this already, but I didn't see it anywhere on my site or in my files, so either I built it and lost it or I'm imagining things, after having done this with one of my other works. What can I say, I've had my hands so full with various calamities at both work and at home that my recall is a bit stunted of late. Especially with stuff I only get to work on during breaks at work.
Anyhow! Feel free to check out the Book of Magic once you're done here. You might see something you haven't before. Or, at least, find what you already have seen more pleasing on the lobes.
