Just Submitted the First Version of Swords & Wizardry: Light
I just submitted the first version of Swords & Wizardry: Light to +Zach Glazar so we could get a look at how it fills the pages in InDesign. Just under three pages at 8.5 x 11" (I believe the plan is to print copies at 17 x 11" to make the booklet - print at home may needs 2 sheets to be readable - time will tell). Graphics, art and OGL to be added, I think we're looking good.
I must say, my 45 minute "This is InDesign" course with Zach was an eye opener and a half. Now I know the tweaks I need to do in Word to make Zach's job so much easier, and as it's his job to make my work look good, I'm all for that.
FYI, I added in weapon and armor tables which I didn't think we were going to have room for. I added them to see if they would fit, and they do, so "Woot!". For space considerations, we went with two adventurer packs for the PCs to choose from instead of a shopping list. Hopefully tomorrow I'll launch the poll to help pick the name of the thiefly class in S&W: Light.
I'm damn excited!
Next step is making adjustments to the format of the word document, then I dig into completing the first adventure in the line, which will include some basic GMing advice. It will NOT be the first adventure written with Swords & Wizardry: Light in mind. The first third party adventure honor will be going to +Thom Wilson / Throwi Games. I've read it and it is awesome! It's got some rats. Love me some rats ;)
