This is a book published in February 2004 for a role-playing convention called "Nodal Point" in various Scandinavian languages: Knutpunkt (Swedish), Knudepunkt (Danish), Knutepunkt (Norwegian), and Solmukohta (Finnish). They decided to publish a book on RPG theory for this year's convention in Helsinki, Finland. The printed book is digest-sized (8" x 6") and 304 pages, perfect-bound, with a photo of a sunrise over some unusual columns on the cover.
