The Before Breakfast Universe

There's a good deal of general background data describing the creation and some of the fine points of the Before Breakfast universe, as well as the more specific data contained here: this is all specific to individual campaigns. There's even more specific data contained in the Before Breakfast Files, which are still primarily contained in offline sources; those will be moved here as time permits.

A great many campaigns have taken place within this universe, some of which are very long-running indeed. At a 1:1 gametime to realtime rate, this means that the older characters have grown quite a bit since they were first created.
