Either I need to post book updates here or unsticky this thread. It's not very helpful.
I just posted a small update to the 0.7.0 book. -Titles of missing sections are highlighted in red -Some HTML comments were added to remind me of stuff I need to do -Formulas were corrected to reflect current rules
Hopefully I'll actually do some bigger updates later on tonight. I'd be more certain about doing it, but I'm so close to the end of Starlancer...

Half a year later I'm almost done with the book! There are only a few more things that need to be done before I can slap a release date on it, increment the version number and start all over again.
Recently Done: -Finished "Increasing Abilities" secion -Removed Spyre chapter (this clearly isn't going to be done any time soon) -Formatting overhaul, including more distinct headers and page breaks (now using CSS!)
Needs Done: -"Removing Flaws" section needs to be written -"Example Equipment" chapter needs to be written -"Gameplay Example" section needs to be written -Ranged combat rules should be added to the combat section
After all this is done, I'll be able to tweak the formatting and spit it out as a PDF for all to enjoy.

Not to get everyone's hopes up or anything, but I've been hard at work on Kalarsys 0.7.1. I've got big lists of Abilities and Flaws, a few new considerations I've been meaning to add, and I plan on tossing some example equipment in there FINALLY. This new book is fully compatible with KalarsysCompendium, a new program I've been working on that parses the book's chapters, and lets you quickly navigate to different parts of it. It isn't pretty or finished, but it does make finding things a bit easier. I'll probably hand out some evaluation copies of KalarsysCompendium to some of you guys so I can get your feedback, though I'll probably end up being too lazy to incorporate your suggestions.
Also, I don't feel like digging up the thread about the new website design I've been working on, but I'm about to put a couple of finishing (or rather, temporary) touches on it and roll it out. I'll probably still fall behind keeping it up-to-date, but at least it'll look nicer and more inviting. :-p
One of the first things I want to do when I finally get a job (won't happen in the near future) is get a REAL Kalarsys website up. You know, something like www.kalarsys.com . That way I'll actually be able to host my newer tools (KDice, NPCGen) without fear of them being too large.
One nearly-final note that many of you will be pleased about, though I don't feel like finding the old thread this was first discussed in: I submitted a copyright claim for the Kalarsys core rulebook. If it meets their guidelines as well as I thought it did, I'll be getting a nice certificate in the mail. If not, then I blew $35 that I could have spent at Sheetz or something.
Finally, I think we should have a big get-together just to do some general game system testing of the core rulebook. We've got shields that I haven't seen used even once, we've got two different systems for bows, and there's plenty of other stuff in the core book I'd like to discuss. For those of you who I often meet with in-person, we should do this. For those that I meet online, we've got TeamSpeak and we should put it to use.
Okay, I think this post is long enough. Unfortunate choice of threads to post it in, though. Oh well.
