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.
