Layout help from overseas


Out of the blue, Remi Treuer told us that he’ll try to re-layout Butterforger. Great! Rumor has it that he took an InDesign course. The author’s own current PDF is quite rough: it’s the product of a beginner’s 20 minutes with LyX, the LaTeX document processor.

The Hunt also has the layout conundrum: it will be a while before the full Empire anthology is translated, but The Hunt is already playable. If it had some layout, people could play it, submit bugs and actual play reports.

Update: The Hunt now has layout, and a minor homepage. In the comments, Emily links to a remix, which she found useful in play. Download, remix, play!

You game for a layout challenge?

    I’m planning on running The Hunt at Camp Nerdly as part of the Freeform Sampler we’re doing there. Both Rene and I made temp versions for use!

    His is beautiful and simple. I think I’ll bring some copies of it as a handout for the players. Mine is edited for ease of use during play. I’ll bring a copy of mine to use while we run it.

    It was really fun to do a remix of the game text! I hope we do get more skilled hands to work on this and the rest of the Imperiet set.

    I’ve had too much on my mind recently to follow the work closely. But if you guys need other help with layout, printing or publishing feel free to send me a message.

    Thanks in advance, Jesper! Authors and translators, take note: people actually volunteer to help here.
