Version 5. Finally. After two years in the making, the
Gallery of Magically Blades
resurfacesto the ‘net with a brand new version. It’s been a long two years, and I’m proud to say theGallery of Magical Blades has a new Assistant Editor, Gary McDermott(GmcDermott@MetLife.com) who has been absolutly instrumental in getting this version done.While lots has kept me busy, and away from the Gallery, perhaps the biggest event (or, atleast, the biggest event any role player reading this might care to know about), would be thecreation of the NetRPG website (http://www.netrpg.com).New blades for version 5 are denoted by a star (
) before their names in the table of contentsand their listings. Also included at the end of the book are tables for randomly creating sworddescriptions, including a complete gem generator based on the 1
- Edition AD&D rules. Theonly changes that we have made to any of the blades submitted are for correction of spelling,punctuation, grammar, format, and for clarification of game statistics and rules. Please readthis prologue in its entirety before continuing as it contains information that is not only useful,but that we deem vital.
