|#1zerianthekeeperMay 31, 2007 9:39:11||Has any of this work been collected into a pdf or doc file?|
|#2gazza555May 31, 2007 10:15:47||Well there's a series of Fan-made Gazetteers. Check out this link.|
There are also some other pdf's on the Vaults of Pandius site, which you should be able to find with the search option.
|#3HuginMay 31, 2007 10:19:59||I'm not sure which work you are referencing in particular, but if you mean works on this forum in general, you should definitely check out the Vaults of Pandius. It compiles work done here as well as on the MML or submitted directly to the site. You can consider it the 'soul' of the Mystara community!|
[EDIT] I see Gary beat me to it. I'll just call it confirmation!
|#4CthulhudrewMay 31, 2007 10:27:24||Any work in particular that you're referring to? There have been numerous collections of work, in txt, doc, pdf, you name it. That which hasn't been collected in a particular file format is pretty efficiently archived on the Vaults of Pandius under the watchful and diligent eye of Shawn Stanley.|
[EDIT- Well, I guess three identical posts isn't overkill. :P]
|#5zerianthekeeperMay 31, 2007 10:34:53||Thanks for the quick reply:D. I am new to Mystara, but picked up some old 2e books from a 2nd hand book store (just can not pass up a good buy). after reading a little I am very intrigued! My group just plays 3e now so I am looking for a good conversion. I will look at what you just suggested here and post if I have any questions. |
|#6gazza555May 31, 2007 10:40:56||One more thing - a number of online stores sell pdf's of Known World/Mystara products from the old editions which are definately recommended.|
Also Gawain and number of others are in the process of writing a d20 Mystara pdf you can find the appropriate thread here - thanks to WotC's new search option.
|#7HuginMay 31, 2007 11:02:00||Aha! Gary lied! there is yet at least one more thing! :P |
Jamie has done a lot of creature conversions from O/AD&D Mystara products to 3rd Edition in this thread. These are also found on the Vaults, naturally.
|#8zerianthekeeperMay 31, 2007 11:50:09||I looked at VoP, but could not make heads or tails of it. There is a lot of information but does not seem to be a lot of organization. I may be missing something please let me know if I am. Is there a collected work of VoP information?|
|#9HuginMay 31, 2007 12:23:35||I'm not sure how you are going about trying to find info on the Vaults but let's use an example of finding info on places.|
Starting from the home page click on the 'atlas' button next to the airship picture. This leads to a list of nations and areas that may be selected. Then you can choose which article is of interest.

I looked at VoP, but could not make heads or tails of it.
It might help to start with Thorf's maps then goto VoP to read about the countries.
|#11havardMay 31, 2007 15:07:18||Here are some good things for you Zerian:|
OldDawg's fan gazetteers:
The Mystaran Almanacs:
The Tome of Mystara
Dragonsfoot Classic D&D resources (Shadow over Pendleton, OD&DITIES and other stuff)
|#12zerianthekeeperMay 31, 2007 15:43:53||:D thanks guys, this will help!|
|#13phoenixmclJun 01, 2007 11:31:28||You could also get the Dragon Magazine Archive. It contains e-versions of all of the Dragons and should include the entire collection of the VoP except the most recent that came out not too long ago.|
The CD-Rom set is very rare and normally found best at ebay. ($120 to $200+)
When you get a set see if you could electronically share it with all of us for Christmas. ;) Just KIDDING!!!
