Well, Prime32, the time has finally come for me to ask for the boards alluded to in this thread. The best plan I can think up is to have in the "New Mechanics and Subsystems" section a collection of 7 related boards:

  • The Book of Seven Secrets: Chapter 1 - Remnant Magic (My Residuum board, renamed)
  • The Book of Seven Secrets: Chapter 2 - Spirit Magic
  • The Book of Seven Secrets: Chapter 3 - Elemental Magic
  • The Book of Seven Secrets: Chapter 4 - Martial Magic
  • The Book of Seven Secrets: Chapter 5 - Trance Magic
  • The Book of Seven Secrets: Chapter 6 - Alchemical Magic
  • The Book of Seven Secrets: Chapter 7 - Glyph Magic

If the prospect of making 7 new boards is alarming, I would definitely be willing to consider other options, but having them all in a single board seems too disorganized and makes it less convenient for those that want to include only some of these "secrets" in their campaigns. Also, since I'm going to take this project one step at a time and continue working on Remnant Magic for now, you don't need to put up any of the other boards for now. We should just agree on a course of action for continuing the book before I proceed.

A sub-board with sub-boards.

Does that work? Would the board containing the sub-boards need to be a larger one like "Homebrew Optimization Contests" or "New Mechanics and Subsystems," or could there be a smaller board, like "Magic of Residuum," with even smaller boards in it?

Sub-boards can be nested fractally. Bottoms need not apply.
Actually, not knowing the inner workings of our forums, I can't actually say this with complete certainty. But I know that you can get at least 4 layers down (Homebrew -> New Mechanics -> Tome of Secrets -> Chapter X), as some PbP games are already doing that (PBP -> Active Games -> High Arcana -> IC Threads).

In that case, I would like to request that my board, the Magic of Residuum, be renamed "Tome of Mystery: The Book of Seven Secrets," and that everything currently in the board be moved to a sub-sub-board called "Chapter 1 - Remnant Magic." In addition, the 6 other sub-boards requested in Reply #101 should also be included in this board, named in the same form as Chapter 1. Thanks!

Since I intend to expand it considerably by developing its own setting, I would like to request a subforum for  "Super Robot Wars d20-Personal Mechas powered up by your spirits!"

That's kind of long, though I could add it as a decription. Want me to move the existing thread there?

Also, I've started a project board of my own. Posting it here in the sake of fairness. :p

I don't suppose I could get a subforum? I'm thinking I'll 'port my Sentai class to here, and if I could put each archetype and associated abilities in their own thread... Well, it'd be nice. 


There's also the non-archetype associated abilites, and so on... It'd just be easier and neater for me to get a subforum for it. I'll probably toss the other class that's of a similar vein up in the subforum, too.


Just call it "TMK's Toku Threads", or something.  I'm terrible with names. :P

Probably falls under New Mechanics, but not sure.

Could I have a subforum under the campaign settings called Mindscapes? Please move my Mind Pirate class there, also. Thanks.

So, I suppose I need an initial thread to move, right? If so, I can do that.

Nah, I just forgot was waiting for a better name. "Henshin a-Go-Go"? "Super Sentai Spirits"? "Toku Hero Time"? "Toku & Tamashii"? "Morphers & Mecha"? :p

Hm....

Given that I'm tossing in a Kaijin class when it's done...

I guess "Toku and Tamashii" might work.
