I'm *ALL* for it! As a fan of Gunnm, I've been so happy when they
released a re-edition with the author's sketches and original notes.
Actually I've spent more time reading them than reading the actual
story! It was in the same spirit than your Art of Morrowind book.

Yep. Since we have background stories, key characters, an extensible
world with several people working on it, I'm sure we'll get some people
to really like it once we release something which makes a more intensive
use of the stories. What Dun Barethsol should be. The plot is already
*great* alone! :)

I guess it should be released after the game anyway, so we can have a
back-look at our work and feel the evolution. Anyway, I'm starting
archiving all the sketches that are sent here. Once time has come, we
could make a downloadable pdf. And since it's quite easy to get printed
now, maybe we could even sell actual books!

But let's make 0.4 first! ;)
