Hi Im a roleplaying nerd from Denmark, whos favorite campaignsetting is Birthright by Tsr made in 1995.
I been visiting alot of Birthright fansites over the years since birthright was taken off the maket to see if there was any life in the game here on the net.
I found a lot of pretty good work, interested fans - GM's and players. And alot of willingness to keep the game alive. I even found play-by-email-birthright campaigns, but I mself was too lazy to make one myself for others to play.
The most interesting project lately is ofcause the re-writing of the BR campaign setting to 3. edition D&D rules... (www.thuarthievel.com or .org or .net...dont remember and the fan-run www.birthright.net) But the project is ENOURMOUS and i think that the people who get this netversion of the BR game actually owns the old BR campaign setting.... So there will be alot of unnessesary junk in such a re-writing. There will also be a lot of 'personal taste', so the old rules that the writer dont like is completely rewritten.
Therefore my idea is less grandiouse...I want to write a short (max 30 pages) compendium for CONVERTING (not changing) the BR rulebook - no more, no less.
On this forum i need YOU to help ME in finding every little detail i might have overlooked, every chapter will be discussed in a new topic.
I start each topic/chapter by systematically scanning for any changes that needs to be pointed out.
Anything you drastically dont agree upon can be discussed, but Never ever jsut say 'that - i dont like...change it to something else', please argue.
And anything i have overlooked will also be discussed.
the adress for my own diskussion group is:
(might be moved to birthright.net if agreeable for implementor)
i planned the project like this:
1- systematical discussion (in the 30 day trial period) to see if there is any interest on the ezboards for discussing the toppic.
2- if discussion is woken, i will buy the discussion forum here on ezboards. Maybe with economic help from interested fans. then the discussion will contiue until we have no more to discuss.
3- writing it all together.
4- alpha testing... a gamemaster, who only knows 3e rules and never has seen the BR campaign setting before or the 2nd edition ad&d game, will get 4 things... 3e core rulebooks, our compendium, the old birthrigt campaign setting, and a 'monster conversion guide'(from wizards homepage). Any questions that arises from this alpha testing will and must be fleshed out before next step.
5- beta test... the near-finished compendium will be released on the hardcore BR fans....you, the discussionists, and the people who might have contributed with money to keep the forum alive.
6- collection of idears and errata from betatest...and formulating them into the compendium.
7- spellcheck, by a REAL englishspeaking person, who is good at writing, not a Dane like me.
8- layout - a person who knows how to make nice real birthrigt text and making the compendium in pdf format (prob a net recruited br-fan) will brush up the compendium to look professional.
9- distribution of the compendium to BR fansites. Distribution of compendium to WoTC. distribution to people on this discussion forum.
Hope to see you visit my project soon!

PS: what i want by doing this is project is to get a more 'back to basic' compendium than then one done by Travis Doom. I really like his work, but in my opinion too much is changed. I hope there are more people out there who agrees with me. But i seek no discussion on this subject. I will do this compendium alone if i have to; but i want to say whole hearthy THANKS to Travis Doom and collegues for a GREAT job! You have my utmost respect!TubifiX! was HerE

Hi Tubifix, in my oppinion you will do Travis work twice, but perhaps you have some good or new ideas. So I think just try, good luck!May Khirdai always bless your sword and his lightning struck your enemies!
