I think this would be good if just enough text (in abbreviated or shorthand format) is included to be a reference. I don't want to see the possibility of people buying decks of cards and bypassing ITL. Honestly, its clearly a rulebook, but the way ITL is written--its probably more entertaining and amusing to read than many of the novels I've read.

A bestiary with counters! Now THAT's a kickstarter. Stretch goals are easy, just more creatures!

...maybe some more dungeon megahexes to go with it...lava flows...underground water pools...cave-ins...and other hazards.

Is there any thirst for microsettings?

I just sent in a two-page article that covers one tower, the walled courtyard around it, and the beekeeper cult that runs the place.

The intention being that the GM can just plop this down in any city or village so the PCs can take advantage of what they offer (Honey buns for one copper each!) without causing much disruption to the rest of the setting.

You could do the same with an abandoned keep on the borderlands, or whatever.

Micro-settings sound like an excellent idea! Like "plug and play". :)

Dang, I forgot to include in the poll choices a booklet on expanded and improved HTH and grappling rules by Douglas Cole. That's another publication that would be high on my list of must-haves.

(that, of a necessity, would need to be short for TFT. Ideally a Hexagram article, not a book, because TFT isn't GURPS.)

(but it's on my list)
