You might already have heard about Felipe Pepe's CRPG Book Project which is dedicated to the history of CRPGs and aims to assemble articles by passionate, volunteering experts on all the classics (2 pages per game, I think), to share as a free pdf with RPG aficionados all over the web (AFAIK). Felipe, the editor, has contacted me via the GOG forum about a contribution on FRUA, a short review with recommendations of modules. He suspected I was knowledgable enough to do it, but I don't think I'd have the time and energy to do it at the moment, and I thought maybe some of the veterans here might be even better suited for the task, if they can spare the time.

So would anyone be interested in writing a FRUA article for that CRPG anthology? Or do we already have a fitting review somewhere in the UANLs or forum sections that Felipe could use? Or that we could use as a base to expand upon? If no single person wants to do it on their own, maybe it could become a communtiy project, too? In any case, here's our chance to have FRUA be part of that book and be presented by people who know what they're talking about from experience.

This looks very interesting, I hope we can work something for it.

I mean I am able to work on it after summer, for now I am busy but will try to contribute as much as I can and would like to see it finished, though I am sure that there are people who would do it better then me as they have more experience with FRUA.

Is noone apart from Milos interested in this, not even in commenting on it, or is everyone on vacation right now?  :o

I've followed the development of this book for a long time over on RPG Codex.  I was hoping someone knowledgeable would step forward and devote a little time to it.  I don't have time to do it myself.

I'd do it, but I only have experience with FRUA as a gamer, not as a modder.

Maybe the group of us could come up with something?

Are there any articles already written in the UANLs or here on the forums that might be helpful?

Perhaps the UA Wiki might provide a good foundation:

I forget who put this together, tho.  :-[

Is anyone working on this? I have considered volunteering to write the review, but only if someone else hasn't already done so.

I was thinking to do so, but I am relatively new to FRUA, and would like to someone more experienced do that. What I could say anytime is that I am more then happy that I found it and just a possibility to play all those Ad&d designs is just great.

Not to my knowledge. I think you would be the perfect fit!  :)
