More Information Edit | History

The following credits do not apply to the earlier Hobbyist Version:

In early 2010 a special offer was made to the community to be able to purchase a printed copy of this RPG item. The Deluxe Printed version is the final product of that offer. It was printed in May 2010, but still holds the copyright from 2009. There is no ISBN number and no product code on the product. It was professionally set and printed and some versions were signed by members of the judging panel or the chief editors.
