You might want to post it as a PDF instead of proprietary Micro$oft format.


I took the liberty of doing it on ThunderChief’s behalf

Some hopefully helpful criticism… Use sub headers so your users can jump to the section they want. Presenting someone not familiar with the game with a 2 page wall of text will be less likely to be read.

The overall descriptions are good… Just make it easier to digest.


I second this. I just opened the document, scrolled through quickly, and closed it because it looked like way too much effort to read


This definitely needs headers, fewer words, and more pictures.

4 pages of single-spaced text is off-putting to most anybody.
