Is there anything like Heroic Worlds for stuff after 1991? That would probably be a massive undertaking, but would rock so much juice one wouldn't need a magic bullet to get the grapes. Anyway... yeah, anything like it, even if its not as thorough?

This has been discussed through the years....I think the undertaking would be so mammoth I can't see anyone devoting their life to it unless considerable financial benefits would be involved...which wouldn't happen.  The amount of gaming stuff increased exponentially after 1991 (not even considering the dumpster loads of stuff with the advent of 3rd edition).  Great idea for a project when one of us retires (hopefully filthy rich?)

Put me down for one - I'll start reinforcing the shelves now!

(Heroic Worlds is one of the few books I have that stays oput permenantly)


You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

I find the RPG.net Games Index ( http://index.rpg.net/ ) to be a step on the way.
See for instance the entry for A1-4, Scourge of the Slavelords:
http://index.rpg.net/display-entry.phtm ... ionid=1354
Good source of information, I think.

But yes, Heroic Worlds II would rock.

You can have my Heroic Wolds ... yada, yada ... cold dead hands!

I own a copy of Heroic Worlds but I don't really treasure it.  

The book is good but I would describe its information as "cursory."

I do like the essay portions.
