I've got one that I downloaded right from this site; I printed off all the available descriptions and crunched it down in small print so it's only about five pages long. First is the list of powers, then come the available descriptions. It'd be nice to have a FULL line of descriptions for ALL the powers, but it's as complete as the one available for download on the Pit's home page.

Here are some ideas that I've seen or come up with myselfthat I like...but some of these that others came up with never did anything with them or are in production right now.

Galaxy Guides:
Gamblers and Scoundrels
Slicers and Infochants
Dac (Mon Calamari) and Dantooine
Sports and Entertainment
Ithor and Sullust
Miners and Merchants
Criminals and Mercenaries
Nobles and Natives
Slavers and Peddlers
Medics and Technicians

Companions:
Politics of the Galaxy
Coporations of the Galaxy
Guilds of the Galaxy
Space Stations of the Galaxy
Media and the Holonet
Routes of the Galaxy

Sourcebooks:
The Force Sourcebook*
The Mandalorian Sourcebook*
The Chiss Ascendancy Sourcebook
Old Republic Sourcebook*
Knights of the Old Republic Sourcebook*
New Jedi Order Sourcebook (WOTC has one already though). *
Clone Wars Sourcebook (there is one already...so maybe we just need an Ultimate Prequel/Clone Wars Sourcebook)*
Rogue Squadron Sourcebook*

Planet Guides:
Kashyyyk and the Mid Rim Worlds
Rhommamool and the Expansion Region
Thyferra and the Inner Rim Worlds
Arkania and the Colonies
Planets of the Galaxy 4: Hutt Space

Everything else, I'm game to do. All I need is an artist, an editor, and someone willing to do the formatting.

I know that there is someone working on a jedi order sourcebook - it's real high quality. Personally I'd like to see someone re-make a GG:13 Gamblers and Scoundrels. It would be nice to have the book that seems to have vanished be replaced with another, even if the content and material was different.


Hey, I would love to do that first or second on my list of 'wants'...and I can get you to help me. Very Happy

In case you don't have it, here's the original "Gambler's Handbook":

Yeah, I have that...It's okay. I was thinking something, well, more elaborate...I'd make use of that material...but I'm interested in doing these only if anyone else is interested in using them. Otherwise, what's the point if no one will read them or use them?

I for one would love to see this material organized into a coherent and complete book. I never really used the Gambler's Handbook because it's just a bunch of info piled up. I think there's great potential to use that info, add a lot more stuff and edit it into a neat little Galaxy Guide you can be proud of.

I will not get involved in the creation process of this book, though I'm sure willing to give my opinion and input in anything that's questioned. However I might be willing to land a hand on the final editing and layout of the book.

That is what I really need, that and an artist. Also, editing any questionable stats or other material caught that might be conflicting with what's 'official' (like I make a locale or descriptive mistake). I would sure appreciate the help. I think I can make a nice book out of the ones I am looking at doing. Though i would love to have anyone who would like to add to the creation process.

Here are the books on my list that I'd love to do first (with any help offered).

Gamblers and Scoundrels (It is on everyones want list)
Slicers and Infochants (This book has so many possibilities)
Politics of the Galaxy (Probably for a smaller crowd, but it'd be a cool book)
Coporations of the Galaxy (This would be more helpful than people realize, and also I'd add alot of Business hooks as well)
Media and the Holonet (This one is probably like the political one, limited interest)

I have all of the official powers. Not all of the text is verbatim from the books, but they are still good descriptions with complete rules. Nonetheless it has a complete list of good descriptions.

About as much as Yavin has to do with Bespin. I just threw it out there. Though, in my mind, mercenaries and criminals (criminal organizations has been done already, I'd like to see the focus on criminals themselves) go at each other more often than criminals and law enforcement or military. So I imagined to do a contrast. Kind of an expansion on Fragments from the Rim except focus solely on the archtypes. Not to mention, while they have different motivations, the two types have similiar personality traits.

Thanks, Cheshire! I may go through and shrink it down so it takes fewer pages like I did with mine. I'll compare them and if I have any on my list that aren't on yours, I'll pm you with the missing ones.
