The SoulMuppet License
Best Left Buried and Orbital Blues both come with a license to encourage publishing 3rd-party materials.
We forgot to include this license in the original few Best Left Buried books. We didn’t think anyone would ever want to make hacks of our game. Please consider the following books as including this text:
Best Left Buried: Crypytdigger’s Guide To Survival
Best Left Buried: Doomsayer's Guide To Horror
Best Left Buried: The Deluxe Edition
A Doom To Speak: Volume 1: The Crypt Collection
