A System of Magical Research
By the mid-1980's, we were pretty much stretching the AD&D rules to their limits. The current Complete Adventurer and Dungeon Master's Agrippa wouldn't be finished until 1988, so there were many submissions by the players for new rules. While most of this site is focused on the storytelling aspect of the game, I have included several of the more interesting and entertaining rules efforts. Enjoy.
This treatise started by Tim and amended by Neil concerns creating magic items.
