I'm happy to help! I'll admit I'm not the most creative person, but I like the idea of creating props. I am good editor if that is helpful. I'm also very good at finding idiosyncrasies (formatting or language) in documents, much to the chagrin of those at my work ;-)
There are already full replicas of the book "Advanced Potion-Making" 4th Ed; created by TK8541 or Demiguel.m
And from the replica "Advanced Potion-Making" 2nd Ed (Snape's Book); Snowfire (AlarmEighteen) and Noel Green.
First of all I would like to say a huge thank you for everybody who has contributed to the effort to collaborate on this book. It never ceases to amaze me what is possible when people work together for a common goal It really is amazing how much details you all have already brought together!
I have been into the idea of making a replica of Advanced Potion Making ever since I saw the first replicas online years ago. Recently I got back into it and finding this thread finally got me going to start my own.
My first contribution to the collective effort is a retyping of the Wolfsbane Potion already provided by the Magician back in June 2019 (see this post). I have found another image online with some more details (see attachment). Also I noticed some oversights and misinterpretations when comparing the images and their PDF. I transferred word for word truthful from the images, so the new, attached PDF should me much more precise now!
Don't pay to much attention to my formating. I am still trying to figure out what tools I want to use. This was done in LibreOffice Writer which worked okish, but I had some pains with the formatting. So I think I want to try Inkscape next. But either way the potion is now in text form and people can use and format it which ever way they want.
There is one thing I noticed about this potion. It should not be in this book! Here is why: Snape used the book as his school book when he went to Hogwarts. Snape was in Hogwarts at the same time as Lupin. Lupin had to go into the Shrieking Shack every full moon to turn into a werewolf. If the potion had been invented at the time and was known wide enough to be printed in a school book, I am sure the Dumbledore would have given it to him, like he did later when Lupin was a teacher.
Another thing I noticed is that it seems like the images are of a replica. I could only find two of them online. The background, and especially the missing endpaper, leads me to belive they are pictures of a replica.
Either way I think the instructions are thought through and really well done though. Since the potion is within canon I think it should definitly be kept in!
One question I am having is: Were is the current development happening? Has the project just been dormant for the last half year? Or has it moved to Discord? If so, the link in this post no longer works...
Anyway I would love to get this going again, connect with you all and help out where I can!
Thank you all so much,

I have worked a bit more on the wolfsbane potion section and wrote another page with some background information. I gathered the information from the books and the harry potter wiki. I also found a scan of the "Schedelsche Weltchronik" a book from the same time as Paracelsus lived. It has some neat medival looking woodcuts. I frankensteined a few of them together to make the werewolf graphic at the end of the section. I'm not totally happy with the moon phase image on the top of page 3, but my graphics skills are limited in that regard ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ So yeah if anybody has some feedback or improvements I would love to hear it
I think I will now start to write the section about Antidotes including Golpalots Third Law (unless anybody else has already started it)!
Also if somebody has access to the mentioned discord channel, please let me know how to join!
