    Thank you for making and sharing all these beautiful crafted rules James! I had a blast reading most of them and who can not like a Sand Kraken?!

    Also just like to point out, not sure if this was intended as a joke but the Farmer PDF is the same as the Harvester PDF.

    This is all brilliant. I can use almost all these things for my campaigns. Also, I have been gathering more advanced technology materials and crafting my own because my world progresses from typical fantasy DnD into an age of technology and the abberrant firearms, mechs, and more are all awesome materials, including the new magic items.

    I can’t seem to find the document for ‘The Pyramid of the Desert Giants.’ If anyone could help with that, I’d really appreciate it.
