Petty Gods Layout Update: Petty Gods through "P"

On the Expanded Petty Gods book, I've got the rough layout done for the "Petty Gods" section up through "P." There are a few copy holes here and there throughout the book (going back as far as the "C" entries), and there are plenty of art "stand in" blocks (black rectangles which hold space for illustrations to come), but as a whole it's shaping up. I'm trying to keep the layout as flexible as possible, so that I can accommodate any unexpected layout issues that crop up.

The page count currently stand around 200. That includes the intro section, the "Cults & Cultists" section, and the "Divine Items" section. So, as expected, by the time the minions, spells, and appendices are added in, the page count will come in around 300.

I'm still thinking it will take through December to get most of the layout done, then through January to get proofing and final art pieces in.

Now that I've been able to get through more of the layout, review the entries that still need art, and know what kind of art-holes I need to fill in, I'm hoping to get a wave of art assignments out this week, with the hopes of having most of those back in by the end of Thanksgiving weekend.

I'm also trying to make the end of November as the absolute drop-dead date for any copy items that are hanging out there. Content items that remain incomplete at that point will likely be dropped.
