Great book. I use it for reference when roleplaying my Kender online. The grammar are mistakes are there, but they're minimal, so nothing to worry about.

In the sections on Kender weapons, you speak of ten weapons, but only nine are listed in the table that shows damage and such. You forgot the Yothak. Other than that and a few other little mistakes, I have found the book VERY useful. Thanks!

uhm VERY nice book. I use it quite a lot and it offered me a lot of information to build my not very stereotypical kender, but could there be a TINY bit of wrong typing in the title-page. It says "kencylopedia", where the inside of the booklet says "kencyclopedia". Probably the worst place in the book to make a mistake. Good luck and jolly good adventuring

Well, first I thought it would be like your fan section compiled into one big .pdf file. I was wrong, it was almost like i was reading the players handbook for kender. Nicely put out, but I to also notice grammer and spelling. Then again we all make mistakes so its all good. Anyway, keep up the good work its very good. :D -Tindertot Rastleknot

I haven't looked through the whole thing yet, but it seems very well thought out and well done from what I have read so far and I plan to use your rules instead of our current ones. However, I have noticed both typos (both grammatical and rules). If you would like I can notify you of the ones I find.

Shoot...screw "high water mark for fan-based creations." This is good enough to set a new mark for official creations, too. It is THAT good. Way to go, Kip! This will definately be printed out. heh heh

A wonderful job, Kipper, ol' chap!! This really sets a new high water mark for fan-based creations. If printed out in high quality using an inkjet printer, it could easily be mistaken for an official product (but missing its cover) :D

Granted, I may be *SLIGHTLY* biased on the material it covers -_^ , it's still incredible. I'll be keeping a kender eye on this, and if you have ANY interest in kender in any way, shape, or form, fellow lancers... I'd suggest you do the same!

This book is the best and only guide to kenders i have ever seen. there are some typos, but so what. now people that want to play as kenders have something to base their character on. its really great that you and all the people that contributed to the "kencyclopedia" made this great book. i just got into DragonLance myself and right now i am in the first book of the legens and i find my favorite charachter being Tasselhoff Burfoot. Thank you for making this book and feel free to email me because i have some ideas about kender stats and a bunch of other stuff. ~Robert

Dear Wandering Friend,

I have enjoyed traveling the world of Krynn for many years. Though I am not a Kender, I find that I do enjoy their company and appreciate the wild and crazy ideas that they come up with (not to mention side adventures...). In any case, as you might know, the world is a crazy place with war abound. I belong to the Solamnian Dragon Force (mainly we fly overhead and drop large Gnomish bombs on desert regions). Regardless of whether or not I agree with our current fight, I was told to defend Solamnia, my home, and will without question. Sadly, I was forced to leave behind all my books and stories from many of my Kender friends. One day, while looking onto my Gnomish World Wide Tangle, I found your new handbook. I must say, it is quite impressive, and truely will be something to help pass the days. I thank you for this piece of home, and do hope your life will be filled with many interesting things. My time is short, so thank you.

Always, Sir Giollamhuire Sares Kanoff uth Wellin, Knight of the Rose

"May your Sword (Or hoopak) always strike true..."

The Kencyclopedia PDF is an amazing show of dedication to the best race on the face of Krynn. Kudos and extra thanks for this awesome free book! I seriously hope you get considered as a writer for the new 3e stuff. Do you know if Margaret Weis has seen this stuff yet? If not, she should.
