Okay Guys,

I'm just sorting out extra bandwidth and space on the server with Foul, and should be able to upload the scans that Aneoth made for everyone to look at this weekend. It'll go up as a zip file and I'll keep an eye on this thread for any hiccups. It's a shame we couldn't have scanned the whole book, 'cos some of the funnier stuff is presently hardcopy only for those who get a chance to borrow it.

Maybe as it moves around and peeps have the chance, they'll send in more scans and I'll add them to the zip file.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . chocolate buttons.

What pray tell are you referring to? The original book? If not, then I am totally confused, since we (I) scanned EVERY page with ANY handwritten material or sketches on it. Including all of the yellow flyleaf pages and inside the books covers. The only page I can think of that may need to be continuosly scanned would be the Signature page the Acaeum members started; which will of course need to be scanned on occasion for updated signatures.


Unless of course, some Acaeum member has been adding his/her own humor to the book.  8O

It looked to me like all of the handwritten notes had been scanned.

The scans, however, cannot take the place of the feel of the actual book...but that is true of any scan, right?

My mistake guys.
I haven't of course seen the actual book.
It was just the impression I had based on the comments that had been posted here from the book.

So it's all there folks. I'll upload and have a link posted here on Saturday.
Many thanks to Aneoth for putting in the hard work.

If this literary gem is bouncing around Canada, is there any chance of it making its way to Quebec?

I was pleased to do so; although it was mostly for selfish reasons. I wanted a scan of the pages myself and while doing so I thought it would be easy enough to place those scans on a CD for other Acaeum members.

I also admit that some of my scan work is at best barely adequate. In the end I was in a hurry to finish it and was VERY busy with my company work at the same time.

Many thanks Ian and all before you involved in getting this masterpiece published.  I'm still writing this through the tears  :lol:
This is so much better when you see the type C poison used to write it in.  
Anyway....
The kids (4 and 6 year olds) have now got a new catchphrase: "Ca-Ca Poo-Poo", how the wife is going to kill me for this one!
But apart from the rant, you can't beat: "Roll a [email protected]%#ing D4 asshole" - poetic brilliance!

Wouldn't it be cool for Jim Perelman to do a Google search on his own name...and land on scans of his notes from his own Players Handbook!

I shipped it on May 1 to Pennsylavania, according to my notes ... but I haven't really checked this thread at all since then, so I don't know what the status might be.
