I once wrote of my plans for writing a role-playing game.

I've been really writing it, in an attempt to fill it to the brim with the campaign setting, the bestiary, the rules - along with some setting-specific plug-ins and a whole bunch of neat stuff. The editing and artwork are still a long way to go, but would you want to game in a setting world which is coloured by the following glossary?
