Treefrog, I'm glad I could help out and get this book over the finish line. It was an honor and a privilege to work with you.

It was a privilege and an honor to work with you on this as well. I'm glad that you volunteered to proofread/edit this monster of a sourcebook.

D'awwwwww...

GROUP HUG!

*envelops Treefrog and everyone else within reach in the Rancor Pit in a humongous group hug the same way the Genie in Disney's Aladdin gave a big group hug at the end of the movie*

I've been sitting on this project for waaaay too long. I decided to put it together and get it out there. Currently, the formatting has some flaws, but I think I'm willing to live with them than tarry on forever:

The Scavenger's Handbook: A Guide to Salvage in the Galaxy

Here's a compressed version of the fan book. It's only 33 MB as opposed to the 122 MB.

Just took a quick look at this. It certainly looks like a genuine WEG product. Granted, there are a few mixing of idioms in the writing so some editing would have been nice, but that's going to be a given for most fanbooks. Still and all, this looks like a really nice book, Cheshire. Thanks for all your hard work on this.

Now I'm expecting us to have a debate on whether this book is meant for actual gameplay or if it's just a not-meant-for-actual-gameplay release like Eric Trautman's Rogue One's Galaxy Guide and thus didn't need editing. Mr. Green

I'd started working on it about five years ago, and hadn't done any real work on it for about two and a half. You're totally right. It needs some editing. Overuse of passives, excessively wordy passages, and some consistency issues. In the end I decided that I didn't have the time to continue to work on it and it was either release it as it was or abandon it. Now that I have enough of the technical know-how to make it look similar to a WEG product, I would rather get it off my plate and get it out there rather than it doing no good to anyone on my hard drive.

My take is that if you can find use for it, use it. If you want to modify it... it's a fan work and modify it to fit your game. If it isn't one's cup of tea, then there's plenty else to drink in the community.

So, yes. It's got flaws. Just ones I wasn't going to have the resources to work with in the foreseeable future.
