If you can wait 2-3 weeks I should be done.  What I'm doing now is a GM
screen format of the creatures (book 3 project).  I'm doing this from my
monster.txt file I typed up like a decade ago before pdf was even out there
:)  I typed it up over a few days time.  Unfournately theres a typo here
and there but  as I'm going through it I'm spell checking and editing :)
So it'll be better.  I'm up to G)oblin now.  Roughly half the project is
done (304k file and my edited GM file is 160)...I tend to 2 letters a day
so I figure 2-3 weeks max....then I can send it to ya.  I actually sent the
OLD copy to wout years and years ago for the website so it might be
there..the sloppy version :)  But this bok 3 porject will also help your
reference pages as well so stay tuned :)  Imagine all creature stats in one
screen rather than flip flip flip...:)  I'm off 3 days week so should get
alot work done this week...so stay tuned...
