    This is a great compilation! I see my Master Guide scan in there. I also uploaded the Dungeon Companion scan on my account. You can see my name under the Master Guide page. I also uploaded the GIMP file for my detailed map on there if anyone wants to improve upon my map. I want someone to make it better honestly.

    Why did you remove the Kargoz powerpoint links?

    Inaccurate on the whole with a lot of private server-only stuff like front stabbing for rogues etc. I’ve had a lot of people asking me to take them down.
