Regular readers of this blog will know that Kilgore prefers digest-sized books and comb or coil binding. The combination of small size and ability to lay open flat at the game table is a hard one to beat.
So when I picked up the Advanced Edition Companion for Labyrinth Lord I knew I had to make a comb-bound digest containing both volumes:
More than anything, I don’t want to have to shuffle back and forth between multiple books at the table. Both are currently complete in this tome, so it’s a pretty hefty little digest:
I put another clear cover in between the two books as a divider and to show of the AEC cover:
The comb I used is just barely big enough, but the next size I had available is way too big. I may pull sections 2 and 3 (classes and spells) of the original book out as all the material is repeated. For example, the cleric’s turning undead table, the magic missile spell description, and the fighter experience point table are all in both.
We’re probably going to use AEC character classes only, so losing the material on the original elf, dwarf, and halfling race/class won’t matter. It would save over 30 pages and might make flipping pages near the beginning or end of the tome a bit easier.
