I am still alive, so is book 2.

Howdy, folks! I know it's been a while since I posted anything, but that's mostly because there isn't terribly much I can preview right now. Most of what I've been working on is a bit dry or cross-linked with so many other parts of the book that it'd be mostly useless without the rest of the book backing it up (namely classes and feats). Things are still coming along - despite the temptations of Team Fortress 2. I'm just mostly down to the nitty-gritty stuff with a lot of bulk writing to do. Feat descriptions, chapter openings and the like. Turning dev notes into something other people can use (and learning just how much of a system was all in your head and not actually committed to paper yet).

There's also a bit of artistic work to do, which I am not terribly great at. My photoshop skills are not strong. I've been working on improved page backgrounds from the version seen in the ship rules preview. Because it's a fairly large image, I'll link it rather than posting the whole thing.

Now, there is one part of the book I could use a little help from people on. I haven't started listing the new magical items and artifacts yet, and I'd like to know what people want to see. What are your favorite magical items? Why do you like them (so I can be sure to include the parts you actually care about)? Original ideas are great, too.
