Tablet-friendly BFRPG

Post Tue Mar 10, 2015 10:26 am

As mentioned I've started work on what will hopefully be a decent easy-to-read version of the Core Rules to read on a tablet. I will upload the complete Core Rules once I've finished working on it; a few pieces of artwork will make it in.

As mentioned before I'm only making this to be viewed on a tablet, etc. not for print. If someone else wants to print it for themselves or take it and run off to make a print-ready version, awesome.

This looks great so far, Chiisu. Going to be very handy for us tablet lovers.

The one thing that jumped out at me on a quick scan through was the spell lists on pg 26-30. The single column layout looks very awkward but it appears you could easily fit those in a two-column layout and tighten things up.

Monsters done; treasure in progress. Will then do another layout pass and should be ready to post.

Alrighty, I'm posting the nearly-finished digest version of the Core Rules, as well as an updated Player's Booklet. I haven't finished bolding all the needed text in the full version, but all tables, layout, etc. is finished.

Once I've finished all that bolding, corrected any found mistakes, considered other feedback, etc. I'll post the source Word files and then my work is finished.

You're welcome :) They're not 100% regarding bolded text and the like, but as far as content and layout it should be pretty close. I started pretty much from scratch (I'll add the plain-text download link in the first post), and probably did way much more work than I needed to, but it was fun and it did teach me a lot about layout work.

Replaced DOCX file with a converted ODT file. I think I got all the spacing, table formatting, etc. fixed. Also removed the 2 images at the beginning, it was just making the file too big. Created a PDF from that ODT file to replace the old one, its file-size is much smaller. Bookmarks look intact.
