    Haha! Etsy shop in Phlan! Love it!

    I've heard of it, but I always thought it was its own... standalone ruleset. Like Pathfinder. Or Sword & Sorcery. Or D&D 5E. Etc.
    I'd have to look into it more to see. Thanks!

    You are rare person "Remedeez", and maybe we need your angle of view and your version because another peoples and Im 100% sure has different. They read different books, blogs, attend portals, play different styles, has favourite different colours, using different words etc .... and idea which you have now in present time they can't have.

    Don't worry about what other people do. Tell your own stories, and don't spend your time looking over your shoulder. Don't worry if someone else has made the "same" thing as you were thinking about. Make your thing anyway. It will be yours. And it will be different from theirs, because you're different from them.

    Wow, nice work! It's a wonderful feeling to get so much done, isn't it? Even better, now that you have it you can keep using it for as long as you continue gaming. I'm still using the campaign world I created almost 30 years ago. It really makes the time I spent then seem worthwhile. Keep up the good work!

    Does your creative talent have peanut butter? Because I am jelly!

    Careful Rem, I think LFan is just a tease!

    I've found that its best to create for only one person. Because the time, love and effort you put into it will probably only be best appreciated by that person, you.

    Not to say don't create and share, but rather your inspiration and your motivation should come from the reward you get by creating, not by the praise or profit you might garner.

    I love your thoughts whenever I find them, Rem. I need a way to follow you!

    If you are the Queen of Homebrew, that makes me a baroness then. I recently found a trick to help me figure out new D&D creative ideas... I will have to PM you it because of I posted here, then everyone will know and you will be back at the same place! Lol

    I have heard it said that there is nothing new under the sun. And I feel your pain. You are not alone in finding that one's brilliant idea has already been thunk of. But then, wen you get down to it, there are only really 5 stories. And when you take in account "Boy meets girl," "Boy looses girl," and of course "Boy finds girl," that only leaves two left. Sorry just being silly ... Seriously remember the words of Piccasso.

    "Good artists copy ... Great artist steal."

    Take what you want, give it a twist, make it your own. if nothing else this led you to blogging and that was a good idea. Keep'em coming!

    If you distribute elsewhere (including the forum), if you include the OGL, then you can still provide links to official source items (i.e. a link to a magic item in the DMG, but not a copy of the item itself). Rob2e does this with his 5e Random Monster Tables (though he distributes through the DMsG).

    PM me if you want my help figuring it out.

    Most definitely! When I finish it up I'll hunt you down and have you take a looksie and give me advice on where to go with it from there, if you don't mind.

The reason I'm on the fence is that a lot of the items I've made formulae ("recipes") for come from the DMG, particularly the items of the magically enhanced variety. So in order to make this into a shareable module I'd have to prune out so much stuff that comes from the DMG, and then it would probably end up being... really lackluster. Again, something I'm still considering doing, of course! I just have to find a way to do it that delivers in a way that is satisfying. I hope that all made sense?

    I do like the idea of the titles "journeyman" and "tradesman" and I might just employ those. Thank you!

    One suggestion, change the skill level names from skilled and professional to journeyman and tradesman. I think you'll find those names (at least for me) to be more medieval and fantasy themed. You also might want to spend a little more time looking up crafting / profession names. I've seen some really goods one on the net, but not sure where.
