Plugin Will Break Every Bukkit/MC update.

Quote from Deathmarine:

Warning: With the way that bukkit has changed this plugin will be broken on every minecraft/bukkit update. Considering it uses either a nms or craftbukkit hook at least once.

    hey I don't want to offend the author but if you need a replacement plugin for RuleBook because it's not updated you can check out my plugin StandardBooks it gives the same possibilities as this (and more) i think and is already updated and will be improved what is going wrong

    @deathisepic: Go

    Why not just make the first item a book, and let it get overridden with the Rule Book.

    This then moves along whatever item you had populating slot one, into slot two.

    @Dibujaron - Thinking the same here.

    You could even expand the plugin for example adding custom commands that gives you custom books, e.g. tutorial book(/help), server list of commands(/commands), rules(/rules), and so on. This is a great base to build it on.
