That's right! You can now buy The Official Community Guide from www.lulu.com for the stonking great price of £15.99! 266 pages bursting with hints, tips, tutorials, questions, answers and a few comic strips to boot! Comes professionally ring-bound with protective covers both back and front.

Why strain your eyes reading it from your monitor? Why flip back and forth between FPSC and the Guide when you can have it there on your lap?! Pull up a chair, get your favourite brew, kick back with some tunes and take a read of the best damn FPSC guide you've ever seen. Go on, treat yourself, it's your *birthday!

The Official Community Guide at LuLu.com, a better read that the **Sunday Sport.



*some time this year I imagine.

**but with less dirty bits.

Awesome. I may have to buy it.

Do you get any proceeds from purchases?

Do proceeds get distributed to those that have contributed the many great tips, tutorials, and scripts in this guide?

The proceedings amounts to around £2, as LULU is printing, binding and delivering so they take a hefty chunk as the price is really for the printing & binding. I've tried to keep the price as low as possible so it's not outside everyone's price range. I'll happily divide most of the proceedings but because I've kept it low you might get 10-30 pence per copy sold.

I definitely don't think Nickydude is in any way trying to profit from the community's tips. Compiling and maintaining this great resource is no easy task, and going the extra mile to get it bound and printed is a great contribution to the community in itself. You deserve a few bucks for this hard work.

I'll be ordering mine - I reference the guide often when making new model packs or doing anything with FPSC. And I HATE scrolling through PDF's, I'd much rather have a bound version that I can sit on the desk.

That's fine. We just like to know where our money goes when we purchase products. We're aware of printing costs and such, since we also produce manuals for customers.

A must have for any FPSC user, invaluable to both beginners and experts. The guide provides a nice set of useful gameplay functions to enhance the interactivity of your game as well as immerse the player in your fantasy world.

Great work Nickydude, this really is a must have. I refer to the guide daily when designing with FPSC.

They should put that on the site, Marc.

I may be able to buy it, come July.

Thanks guys.

I deliberated long and hard about putting it into print (it was all set up ready to go 2 year ago, just ask those who won the FPSC Xmas Comp!) but the issue of dividing the proceedings among so many people meant that the price would be way, way too high for anyone but the most dedicated (and wealthy)!

Don't worry norion, there is a free download, but then it's up to you to print it out. This way all the printing and binding is done for you.
