Ah thanks for the tips. I have never used Open Office, will it work with Win2K Pro?
As for the fonts, yes I have downloaded many medieval cap and script fonts from dafont, which particular ones did you use for the cover page?
As for suggestions, I do not that you have a number of lined pages without any heading which I presume to be for notes. Perhaps you might use 1 or 2 of these pages for Lab details (improvement, virtues, flaws)?
Perhaps when I get a chance I'll do the labour of turning your pdf into a fillable form for easier online record keeping.
Ah excellent idea to put the lab details with the Grimoire instead.
Yes I love the simplicity of being able to fill out my records on my machine, then all that needs doing is to print out the updated sheets from one session to the next. The only tedious thing is putting text boxes on every line and space (or check boxes where appropriate) and then possibly formatting said boxes as calculated fields for the weapons tables or sections that pertain to changeable scores (like casting formulas, Lab total etc.)
Some would do it using Adobe Designer but I have found that route to be far more complicated and prone to bugs than just doing it one text field at a time.
Thanks firth5. And thanks for the site...I don't know if i will find one day the time and the courage to translate everything in english. I think i will take some part of this site to put them in a new site, a collaborative one (still in french for the moment, sorry...). For the moment, i'll try to work on background problems : creatures, NPC, places of magic, etc.
you did the item sheets ? I saw them...Great job too...I just have problems after expanding the zip : i just have red or blue or yellow or green pages...not black ones...You decided me to publish this booklet...
Hmm thats very strange. Ah but then you are on a mac right? I dont know anything about Macs or Mac conversion requirements, I did them on PC so maybe thats the problem. There are quite alot of coloured segments to the sheets (header, borders, font colour, watermark) so maybe its confusing your Mac, I dont know.
Oh I know i encouraged you to publish the Grimoire and its fantastic, just suggested you might not need the Items description pages to cut the overall file size down a bit. Its not really important, extra notes space is always welcome in my view.
I have difficulties to create the item pages like you did.
In fact, i don't have a lot of space. In a page, i can put the description of the item, and the description of a single effet, only with the AM5 core book rules. In the booklet, this page could be on the left. On the right page, i can add other effects and Verditius rules, or leave it blank : people should use it for other effects and other rules, or use them for other lab texts. But for 10 enchanted items, I need 10 pages, and eventually 10 blank pages. It's not a lot of items, but it's a lot of pages. And if the user needs to add pages, it's difficult once the booklet is stapled.
So, for the moment, i think i will leave the Grimoire booklet like this, with modifications to Twilight page and Crepuscule Page...If i find a good solution, or if someone finds one, no problem.
I encourage people to use your sheet for their items. They could fold the pages and introduce them in the booklet. I can translate it in French if you want... @WorstLudditEver :Thanks @The Fixer : well, we can consider the booklet published I don't really have possibilities to publish it by other means that Internet and everybodies' printer...I will edit my post tonight (3.30pm here) for the last modifications (Twilight and Crepuscule)
I think you misunderstood my post, Honorius. I wasnt suggesting you duplicate my effort, exactly the opposite. I was suggesting that since I had already provided detailed items sheets, you might not have to include ANY space for such details in your booklet, thus allowing you to reduce the number of pages or devote those pages to additional spell creation notes.
