  1. It surely can. And a search on youtube/google about book restoration will probably give you a lot of results. Plus, it's up to you to build it stronger than it ever was. I think it requires to be a lot more delicate though. And personnaly I will make a few new ones first before trying it, if only to have an idea about what could go wrong and where/when should I be more careful. If pages barely hold, you'll probably have to reinforce them a bit, too, and stitching a regular one may give you ideas how to do it properly. I actually made some tests with a couple A5 versions of those books first, using only a few signatures. That's how I saw it was easier than I thought.
  2. I'll add I was very dubious at the japanese binding at the beginning, but we use the booklets in all our sessions since months now and they didn't get loose so far. And it's super easy & quick to do. With the wood pieces, it's really strong.
  3. You should give the back a round form, before glueing, unlike I did for the first one ๐Ÿ˜‰.
  4. and finally, more stafford's library waiting for their cover
  5. Then stafford's library GRoY, entekosiad & fortunate succession, bound with a piece of leather my father kept when he replaced his old sofa ๐Ÿ˜
  6. here is the spirit spells list, with a japanese binding. No folding here, just make holes and go through with your thread. The third image is the runic spells list, I tested with two piece of wood. Very nice, and useful at the table as reference booklets.
  7. An english version of the first method : https://www.trumpetvine.com/moleskine-reloaded/
  8. For book binding, here is a tutorial for the simplest method. It's in french but you only really need to look at the pictures (ignore the first one to make a tiny book, print your pdf on A3 for A4 book or A4 for A5 book) : http://dansmapetiteroulotte.eklablog.fr/diy-fabriquer-un-livre-avec-une-reliure-a125635298 The only important stuff is the stitching and there is a clear schema. That's what I used. For the thread I got some wax thread (for leather I think) that is thick enough (but not too much) from amazon ( and the fr amazon ). These are just example, I got them because I wanted brightly colored ones. I also bought a couple big needles for leather to accomodate the thread. There are some curved ones that are very useful. For the glue, I used regular wood glue, it works fine and is not too rigid. I used the method presented above, that is I glued a piece of cloth to reinforce the back and the join between the paper and the cover. Another, more classical, method is to use ribbons or rope : https://www.ibookbinding.com/blog/sewing-the-book/ (in english but, again, just look at the sewing pictures to understand) For the cover, you'll need thick carton or thin wood and something to decorate it. Beware you need to put glue on both side if you want to avoid warping. Or use thick wood I guess. There is also an even simpler stitching, the japanese one, that doesn't need any other explanation than a simple photo of it. I'll post some when I get home. To print your pdf, you must use the booklet mode : 2 pages per side, on both side of the sheet. And you have to print your pdf in several batches, one per "signature" (the folds you stitch together). To print an A4 book, I used 5 A3 sheets per signature (more than 6 looks very thick), so I printed a booklet for pages 1-20, then 21-40, etc... You need the booklet mode, because you need to print page 1 and 20 on recto, then 2 and 19 on verso of first sheet, etc.. so when you pile up the 5 sheets and fold them, the pages are in order. The booklet mode take care of this. Make some tests first, you'll get it. Adjust the number of pages in your last ones so you don't end up with a single sheet on the last signature.
  9. Add the link here : since I spent a lot of confused time before understanding the "tavern" is actually called an Inn and not in the Chaosium category ๐Ÿ˜ต
  10. Note I printed and bound myself a few PDFs. It's not that complicated and fun to do. Unless DTRPG provides that print-on-demand option, that's what I plan to do with A&EoDP.
  11. As I understand it, all of this is true depending of the heroquest and the level of involvement from the heroquester. There is even a difference between heroplane and godplane heroquests.
  12. My lectern is now done. I glued an african cloth (well, they're all made in europe, as you know) on the table and poured a couple millimeters of epoxy on it. I think I may have gone oversize ๐Ÿ˜ The glorantha books look tiny on it ahaha.
  13. of course. The crit maximizes the part that got affected by the special. That's how I understand it.
  14. To me, it maximizes to 18+1D4. Crits only max weapon base damage, right ?
