Guide to the Camping skill (feedback welcome)

    I've made a guide - more an essay really - on the Camping skill. I've roughly cobbled it together in html-ese for public viewing. I've also included a skill gain journal and a wish list:

    Fink's Camping Guidebook

    I'd appreciate any critique from people within and without the Camping community. I need both experienced eyes and a newb's point of view as to readability, clarity, and so on.

    I'm in the process of writing up all the write-ups I've been meaning to do since forever, hoping to cover the orphaned skills that aren't already done.

    don't have much in the way of critiques except to say i read it and appreciated the new information. you don't read much about the lesser-used skills and i'm going to go make a fire on my boat right now :)

    Info is presented well, I particulary like the gain journal. Now I have this little voice in the back of my head telling me I need to GM camping. (I'm currently working up a 'useless skills' template on one of my chars.)

    My only advice would be to change the text and/or background color. After reading the three pages my eyes were a little strained. The lines of text kinda bled together on the black background.

    Camping is nice.

    i used to have around 30 camping , kindling and a bedroll , when i started to play UO.

    i was able to safely log out in the forrest..between ettins and trolls.

    Don't think you need GM camping to log out safely tho.

    Although it's a nice and pretty weird skill for roleplay perhaps?

    Either way , nice guide :)

    Sorry about that, I just tossed it into a template as I plan to edit the raw source before actually putting it into a page.

    Thanks for the feedback, everyone :D
