Congratulations with your site. I have often tried to create my own universe in which a fantasy novel would take place. Reading all the articles on your site fills me with both awe and envy. Everything you've written is just so well worked out, all the information is so complete. A true masterpiece, that's what I say. Once more, congratulations!

Hey, stumbled upon this site earlier today, and have just now truly a grasp of how immense a world you've created. As a fellow world-maker (Albiet, less talented/practiced. XD), I want to wish you the best of luck continuing the project. It really is an inspiration to see such a brilliant inspiration. :)
May the suns shine bright upon Khoras, evermore.

I am pleased. The world is the world and it is good. Death could not hold me nore time dim my resolve. I awaken and seek again the comfort of battle.

I think you have done a tremendous job developing the World of Khoras. I intend to use it exclusively for my campaigns. I have copied, pasted, and printed every page on your site (not a quick task by any means). I have gone through four black ink cartridges, three color cartridges, and a case of paper. Your world filled four 4" D-ring binders. Not that any of this is relevant, I just thought you might want to know. Like any good DM, I am a creative mind but when I come across something as thorough and well put together as Khoras, I steal it and change names here and there (hope you don't mind, this is for game purposes only). Anyway, awesome job on the website. Look forward to any additions that you might make. Regards

Thank you very much for the setting David,
i've been a DM on Dathkandra for about a year now and i've found it to be the
absolute best setting i've been privvy to. Now that i'm done giving thanks i'll
go back to making stats for the khoras creatures =)
May 1, 2006
Fantastic site David. I'm proud of you. I
read your some of your short stories, and poems as well. I'm glad your my bro,
but can't fathom how it happened as we are so different. You truly got the
creativity in the family. Keep it up!
November 30, 2005
Great and fascinating sight. keep up the
good work. This has got to be the most thorough and more importantly interesting
campaign sites I've ever seen. I have spent days just reading it. I am now
working on adapting the races into D&D 3E rules for a few adventures.
November 8, 2005
This has to be the best site on role
playing. You guys did an awesome job creating your own maps, characters,
history, etc... I mean WOW it is almost hard to believe. Keep up the good work

It's been years since I signed your
Guestbook so I thought... why not? :) Just wanted to tell you I'm still
head over heels in love with Khoras, Mr Roomes. That NaNoWriMo story last year
didn't went through because of "personal problems", but those seem to have
cleared up (for good this time) and I've been planning for quite some time now
to build a miserable novel around your fantastic world.
Please keep updating. :) All the best for you and your loved ones and keep the creamy Khoras goodness coming. Your Most Avid Fan,

I found this site by plugging in the
definition of plutocracy, hoping to find the name. I ended up on your government
types page, and after poking around the website for a bit, I became pretty
impressed. I especially enjoyed reading the page on the Xorians. Gotta love
March 24, 2005
Great site! I surfed in looking for fantasy
jungle fauna, and ended up bookmarking the whole site.
February 24, 2005
This is without a doubt the most thorough,
most well done world I have seen... EVARH. Whoever created this beautiful piece
of work, you're insane- but in a good way. XD Keep up the amazing work!
August 18, 2004
First let me say, David, I am sorry for your
loss. Then let me say that this is a truely stunning site! I found it quite
accidentaly from a Dm advertising a pbem on pbem.com and starting looking over
the place. VERY well done, a wonderfully done world and an astonishing amount of
work. Thank you.
March 4, 2004
Wow. I've never heard of Khoras before I
stumbled to it by pure coincidence. This is really great. I'm lost for words.
I'm a huge Dragonlance fan and I'm thinking of writing my adventures based on
this world. Really I'm stunned. This is so nicely worked out it will sure give
me enough material to keep building adventures for about 10 years :). Just keep
January 13, 2004
Absolutely incredible creation. I'm not
easily impressed by such things, but the level of detail here blew me away.
Loved the sun altering the level of magic idea, the solar radiation causing
mutations. Great great stuff.
November 12, 2003
Excellent site! The level of detail here is
March 14, 2003
I usually don't do roleplaying games, but I
searched for deserts on the net to be able to draw my own coloured version of my
own invented planet and ran over your site!
I am just amazed at what time and effort you put into this planet! I mean, I am working on my own for at least nine years now (school, study and other hobbies like drawing had to be done, too), and, believe me, I know the time you have to put into such a great thing!
I want to congratulate you for this great planet. And on the other hand I saw what else I can do for my own planet - and my father declared me as a crazy girl when I started doing the climates and charted the ocean currents on my planet! *grin*
I HAVE to show him this site!
Keep up this thing! It is simply amazing!
February 11, 2003
I was browsing The Worlds of Khoras for
several months now.I discovered it on a search engine (www.google.com). From the
first moment when i saw this site i was amazed.It was so good planed, wrote...
everything was perfect.
At the time when i found out this site i was planning to make an browser based game, strategy multyplayer.Even if Khoras is a RPG campaign it helped me in some ways to improve the idea of my game and i want to thank to David for that.
What i would like to see in this magnific world would be an Forum Board and more updates on the campaign.
Please everyone excuse my spelling,but I was very tired when i wrote this.
January 31, 2003
This is the best RPG site on the net. I've
been following this place for some years now, and I can still be stunned by this
world. cool world and nice system.. I LOVE KHORAS !!!
December 22, 2002
Stunning creation. I am an instant fan.
November 23, 2003
Great! Just great! One of the best, most
comprehensive campaign worlds I've ever seen!
September 18, 2002
Truely wonderful site. Much information,
very well worked out! I'll be here often now. (Going to run your campaign
probably!) Thanks for the good times that are coming!
May 30, 2002
I love this setting, because anyone can copy
Tolkien and I'm not impressed that website designers are able to read. To create
a world that is qualitively different and stands on its own means that vast and
precise thought went into it, and that means there's still some hope left for
the human race.
May 17, 2002
Amazing. I am very much impressed with this
site, and the world you created. It's totally incredible. I don't know what else
to say but, keep up the good work!
April 26, 2002
This site is absolutely fantastic. The
breadth and depth of information is staggering and it gives someone developing
their own on-line world something to look up to.

When I first read you introduction as being
the largest campaign setting on the internet, I thought you were just tooting
your horn but then I surfed in and was amazed. My hats off to you. You have an
extremely well developed world that has been well thought out and works very
well. Keep up the good work.
March 22, 2002
This is the most astonishing site ! Never
have I seen the likes of it before.
January 20, 2002
I love this site, there is more and more
stuff I discover every day. It has kept my attention for many months (and thats
saying alot, my attention span is very short, especially on the internet). Keep
up the good work guys.
December 28, 2001
This is, as always, a very good site. The
amount of detail is so vast that nothing else I have seen (on the net or
elsewhere) is even close to competing with it. I have just received a set of the
maps by mail (and I live in Denmark). They are very good and great quality. Even
now that the price has kicked in they are still very much worth it. This site is
very good. And with the two new continents it will be incredible. It is even
interesting for people who don't play role-playing games. Keep up the very good

The world, nations, cities and people are
all well thought out and have just enough detail to bring them alive but simple
enough to adapt to most anyone’s own campaign setting. The thing that really
makes this site though is the organization. This online campaign setting is by
far the easiest to navigate out of all the others I have found on the web. The
maps are awesome and I can’t wait for the city maps. One more nice thing about
this site is it is actually updated regularly.
October 14, 2001
Your world is truly humbling in its
August 14, 2001
This is beyond doubt the best put- together
world I have seen on the net. If I ever game on an online gaming system like,
Webrpg, again I will use it. Since I don't have the time to detail something
like this it is great that you did. BE PROUD! Tell TSR, someone, you're DAMN
March 23, 2001
Absolutely amazing. I've put a little bit of
my world on the web, but your magnificent work dwarfs all my efforts - and
perhaps inspires me to work harder on my world. Thanks and keep up the good
February 8, 2001
This is utterly amazing! It would seem that
one would need to have a huge amount of people to finish such a work of art. I
have never seen a better setting, in my entire life. Thanks for making such a
rich, inspiring, and believable world.
December 21, 2000
One of the best fantasy worlds on the net!
December 19, 2000
Huge detail! If my site gets even half this
good I'll be happy. Oh, and David, it was your piece on creating a fantasy world
and putting it on the web which prompted me to start my Krell project. See ya.
December 13, 2000
This is one of the very best web sites
(period!) that I have ever seen. I find it staggering that so much work and so
many details are contained here with so much well done cross referencing. I will
be playing this world at first chance in my new D&D3 game. Congratulations on
doing an excellent job. Any plans on doing an Alternity/Sci-Fi setting this
well? The photograph clips are THE MOST STUNNING! I have always wanted to really
SEE a fantasy world and your usage of those shots was absolutely wonderful. More
of them if at all possible. Thank you again, Looking forward to give it a test
October 16, 2000
This is a very, very, very good campaign
setting. I mean I'm dropping MY setting for it. Whoever made this masterpiece,
please email me! Literally, it's the best on the net and it's better than TSR's
August 30, 2000
This is a wonderful site, I can't even begin
to imagine the amount of time put into it. If I could think of anything to add
it would be a "where to start building your own world" section since you seem to
be an expert at it!
August 19, 2000
Wow...what a find! I'm forever looking for
great resources and information for campaign settings. Suffice it to say I have
bookmarked the site and even downloaded the site for use in future campaigns.
Thanks for all your hard work! This site is great!
July 23, 2000
Khoras is the best campaign setting I've
ever seen, that includes Dragonlance, Forgotten Realms, and Birthright!! I'm
currently organizing a small campaign set in the area of Mercia and the
Coalition. If it turns out nicely I'll let you know.
July 12, 2000
Excellent site. The best and most detailed
world I have ever seen. Thank you for creating it.
May 9, 2000
Two words... "Holy Crap". I was absolutely
astounded by the amount of work and extensive detail that has gone into this
site. I fell in love with Khoras immediately and I'm going to start using it as
my campaign world, hopefully for a long time to come. My librarian would have a
massive brain anneurism if she found out that I've printed out EVERY SINGLE PAGE
of your site-- enough to pack full two 3" binders-- to use in my AD&D sessions.
Imitation is the highest form of flattery, you know, and of respect. And respect
is definitely something I have a lot of for Mr. Roomes, who is undoubtedly the
most skilled and most amazing campaign setting creator in the WORLD. I am
eagerly awaiting the release of your first Campaign- the Avissar's stone!
March, 22, 2000
All I can say is.... "My God"... I am
totally amazed at the quality and time put into this work, ESPECIALLY for
someone who isnt getting paid to do it. This is one of the most comprehensive
non-commercial games I have ever seen. I totally fell in love with this site. I
have made my own games/campaign settings, but none of them have ever been as
all-consuming as this (though thats mostly because of my lack of attention
span.. heh). Its nice to know there are still people out there that actually
want to do things for other people for FREE. Again, amazing..
February 21, 2000
I was looking for some worlds created for
AD&D, and I had seen a lot, when I came here... I stopped looking for other
worlds. I never thought such a website could exist... It's the most detailed and
complete I've seen...
I am admirative for the time spend in making this. You can be proud of it. It's unique, and can't be compared to the others...
Good luck, and courrage, for continuing this great Work...

Khoras is, without a doubt, the finest
product of its kind on the 'net. The time and effort put into detailing this
lavish fantasy world are readily apparent, and the fact that it's free boggles
the mind. A prudent game company would snap Mr. Roomes up, if only to deprive
the competition of his resources.
January 29, 2000
I enjoyed the site and plan on using Khoras
in my next campaign. I have not gamed in almost two years because my friends and
I got tired of the same worlds. Now everyone wants to game and chose me to be
the DM and I choose Khoras as the world I'm going to send them to.
August 8, 1999
This is without doubt the best RPG World on
the net I have encountered! Whilst I haven't fully explored this site, the depth
and quality of your work appears to far exceed most commercial RPG products.
Gaming with you in Khoras must be quite an experience. Well Done!
June 28, 1999
Just wanted to congratulate you on the
single most extensive and high quality personal campaign site I've encountered
on the net. The vast amount of information, in addition to the original artwork
and handy page design make this one a frequently visited site for me. It's an
invaluable resource to game masters creating new worlds, or those expanding
their current worlds. Thanks for all the hard work, it IS appreciated! On that
note, please don't stop working on the site, there's so much left we want to
June 17, 1999
Wow! I am extremely impressed by the page. I
was searching for D&D web sites and this is one of the best, if not the best
I've seen. The absolute amount of work that must have gone in to this is
astounding. I am an AD&D player searching for inspiration in DMing. I just found
December 22, 1998
This is without a doubt a most ingenious
webpage for gamemasters and players, novices and experts alike. Fabulous detail,
intricate design -- all the facets of this world and webpage merit the highest
of praise. The artwork of Mark Price is clever, inventive, sharp, and the two
make an excellent team. Congratulations on such a success!
September 27, 1998
And my all-time personal favorite guest book entry is the following:
I never come here without leaving impressed with both the milieu you've created and the web-site that hosts it.
I've been a "world builder" for a very long time, about 23 years, practically raised on the rich Beowulfian depth of Tolkien's Middle Earth and linguistic complexity of M.A.R. Barker's Tekumel. Before that Olympus, Camelot and Tir Na Nog were my imaginary playgrounds; thus, I appreciate all the effort you’ve put into your site and mythos, particularly in the areas of cartography and anthropology. The photos are a delight as well;-).
As a High School Teacher, armchair historian and fledgling web-master, I'm exposed to a serious amount of literature and media. I must say I find your creation to be more believable and fully realized than many I've come across in my reading and web-wandering. I’m sure, however, I tell you nothing you don’t already know.
Suffice to say then, I wanted to offer you a, "Well Done!" concerning Khoras. If you lived closer, I’d like nothing more than to swap tales of past glories and world shaping ideas over a pint or two; my treat. In lieu of that, I’ll raise my glass in a toast from one world builder to another in appreciation for inspiring me to continue my own endeavors rather than letting them languish.
