Rear Cover Conundrum for BX3e

In order to keep things simple, I thought a simple hex grid would serve as a decent rear cover for BX3e (like the one on the rear cover of the Gamma World rules from the same time period):

Maybe a map of the Grand Duchy of Karameikos would be a better option. Or…

Maybe the Expert rules cover on the rear cover. (?)

I think, looking at the three of them, that I’m partial to the map of Karameikos. Hmmm… What are your thoughts?

… almost there!

Thank you for your patience in waiting for me to finish up my BX3e rules. At this point I’m down to the last few pages of proofreading.

On the plus side, my going over the rules has uncovered some spells and other content that needed to be added. Also, when adding “Advanced Options” in the appendices, the added time gave me time to think about what additional, advanced, content to add. So, at this point, the core rules include the following classes: Clerics, Dwarves, Elves, Fighters, Halflings, Magic-Users, and Thieves. The “Advanced Options” allow for the inclusion of: Druids, Gnomes, Half-Elves, Half-Orcs, Monks, Paladins, and Rangers, as well as rules for multiclassing.

Within the next few days I’ll be posting a link for the rules and asking you all to look them over. I’d appreciate if you let me know of errors or unclear text that you find, or of suggestions that you have (with the caveat that this is a more modern take on old school rules, leading to a slight improvement of characters over their older equivalents).
