Source Materials and Appendix "X" Inspirational Reading

   At the very end of the first volume will be some credits, spell indices, and a parody of the "Appendix "N" Inspirational Reading sections. The Source Materials is straight forward and serious, but the Appendix "X" is a list of famous, and not-so-famous fictitious books. I add to it occasionally, and if you can see where this list is going, I invite you to add some to it. Here is what I have so far:

Source Materials

Holmes'” Basic D&D Rules
0e” OD&D rules, either from the lbb's, or the “Single Volume” edition
Chainmail Rules – Specifically the “Man-to-Man Combat” and “The Fantasy Supplement” rules
Supplement I: Greyhawk
Supplement II: Blackmoor
Supplement III: Eldritch Wizardry
Swords & Spells

Some of these were invented by me, with the author's names changed or invented to avoid confusion of actual books by the real authors. Other books are indeed fictitious, having been invented for TV or film. Some are obvious to our generation of gamers and genre, some are less obvious. I'd like to think of this as an in-joke. Some of you might submit fake books that I may or may not get, and some may be made up by you; either is fine.
