Well in all reality that dosn't require much but some basic adobe Illustrator or Indesign skills. To make it look good you need page layout expertize and illustrations. Did he get his own or pull from previous Mitnight material?

I used Microsoft Word for ToS vol 2. Wink

Sorry, I'm doing a lot of print design classes and so I guess it's just in my nature now to rattle off industry stuff rather then think of more practical solutions.

I know, ToS vol II started out on Indesign, but given the amount of things you can do with Word and a pdf printer, I ended up making it that way. I do think I got to the limit of Word though, because I am reptty happy with the entire layout.

I do have a MS word file of ToS3, a compilation of all articles (hopefully, this has to be verified) posted under the proper category on the forums. If anyone wants to jump into the project and do the work, I'll be more than happy to give him the file.

Just Pm me Wink

as far as I remember, smeagol was waiting for some more articles I believe but don't remember what exactly Sad

I think there were a few things unfinished, and a few that hadn't been sent to him yet. It's been a while since I looked at that section of the boards. I'll do some searching tonight and see if I can figure out what was left to be finished.

Hello guys,

Mostly I had made a compilation of articles gathered either from the old forums, or written by myself or others in the TOS3 sub-forums. My role was mainly to coordinate the efforts (I don't know anything about layout).

Some time ago (at least a year ago), seeing my increasing workload, and as I was not yet satisfied of the result (my own fault), I realized I could not keep the project alive anymore, so I decided to pass the flame (so to speak) to Dain and Kane, and sent them a compilation of the so-far written articles (I was still expecting Dain's take on Asmadar at the time).

Sadly, all of us have been busy (we all have lives beyond Midnight), and the project simply stalled.

The most interesting articles are still on the boards in the TOS3 subforums, though (for those still interested).

Sorry for the lack of communication, and if some people want to keep the project running, just ask Dain or Kane (it's a huge Work file).

Lurkers like me are still muy excited about the idea of ToS III. If anyone takes up the challenge, I'd love to know. It's certainly a project worth doing.

I would have uploaded it here, but the site allows only .zip or .rar files, and I work on a mac with MS Word for Mac.

Thanks Nif. I just uploaded it.

Now everyone can use it, tweak it, take what they like, cut what they don't, to make it their own ToS3 Wink

Have a nice read.

Contributors should manifest themselves as I could not retrace everyone's work (which explains the lack of a credits section). Some of the crunch (some prestige classes, tools of the trade, etc) was taken from diverse OGL sources (can't remember which). My bad.
