Thank you for doing these!

I'm particularly appreciating your "Yes/No/Maybe" elements at the end.

That is okay. Glad to review these and the 'Yes/No/Maybe' summation is a nice change of format and a bit punchier in style.

I not only like those summaries, I also like the broken down content in smaller sections. In the past, my #1 criticism of your (otherwise very good) articles was that it was often a big uniform block of text without any separate sections or structure. Often there would be some implied structure (like a few paragraphs on the physical aspect of a book) but it was indistinguishable from the rest at first glance. Thanks again!

I will bear that it mind. I do have a structure to my reviews and yes, my paragraphs can be lengthy. That though often comes from longer books.

Thanks for the review, Pookie.

It is quite a scary prospect to put one’s material in front of an audience, especially one as well-versed as the Runequest community.  As the author of Tales of the Sun County Militia: Sandheart Volume 1 your review will help me in shaping Volume 2, which is on its way. I also wanted to congratulate all the other authors for being brave and showcasing their excellent work. I hope others follow suit.

Best wishes

Jon

Also in need of a once through edit...

"What do you get?
Rubble Runners - A collection of Pavis Characters is a collection of fifteen NPCs, each of which is accompanied by five or six associates and contacts—their supporting cast and five and five or six encounter and plot hooks. l

Jonstown Jottings #3: This Fertile Ground

This is such a fun little scenario, and can easily be transposed outside Beast Valley.

Hello!

Thanks for this.  I want to second the fanship of the Yes/No/Maybe summary at the end.  It's really helpful and useful.  It pretty much perfectly got what were we about and distilled it down to short sentences.

Thanks. The format is designed to help the reader decide fairly quickly (as well give another format for me to write to).
