    Ok I'm home from the convention (got to play three C&C games, yay!) so just wanted to clarify: are you referring to the spellbook sidebar or the bonus spells sidebar?



    I guess I can add the spellbook one to the class sheet, that one kinda does make sense, but I'd rather keep "explanation" sidebars in the reference manual, unless everyone agrees they'd rather have the full monty on the class sheets?

    Also, not sure if you've seen this thread, but it's where my patch notes have been posted each time.

    The spellbook sidebar, it's essential for making a Wizard or Illusionist, and the player would be looking at the class sheet anyway to drag the abilities into their character sheet.

    @Franklinson just pinged me about this. I see why it's happening -- the ruleset was updated so the ability windows have some new data fields but most importantly the text used to be string text and now the window uses a formatted text field. That's why nothing is displaying. @Mortar is assigned to do the CKG update but I just sent him a PM asking about it. I have some ideas how I'd handle this (and a few other things) above and beyond simply switching the text fields.

    The CKG update is coming. Initially my efforts are geared towards the CKG itself, and getting it ready for use. Intro, and the first two chapters heading to a beta reader for a review of the organizational break down of the revised module . Using the reference manual format can get awkward to handle with walls of text. I tried make some separations where the text seemed to have a natural lull to it.

    I also still thinking of tinkering with the index system - again

    Try to mimic how I did the PHB, which is the same-ish as the 5E PHB. They now want each "topic" (ie. bold heading) on its own page that can be shared rather than sharing huge walls of text with multiple topics whenever possible. I think there may have been a handful of times where that didn't "flow" as well or make sense, but generally I tried to stick to the standards they're putting forth for us.

    For the most part, that is what I did. There are likely a few exceptions. I'd love to see one or two levels in the reference manual hierarchy - section/subsection maybe. Some of these indexes can be lengthy walls of text on their own
