Slowly but slowly the Killzone overhaul is coming along. Today, I figured out how to save the whole mess in a form that would then allow me to upload the images to blogger.
Karitas and Menzies deserve tremendous credit for conceiving the visual end of this project; however in recent weeks, much of the formatting and imaging has landed on my lap (to be candid, I found myself in the middle of the opportunity when "real life" knee-capped the others). In his indomitable yet humble way, Karitas put a really professional edge on the Beta ruleset, and both he and Menzies have incredible skill with image manipulation and graphics. Alas, I lack that latent skill, but try to compensate in other bloody-minded ways. So. I've tried to match the professional and slick look established at the precedent, while pitching an unmistakable, perhaps gentlemanly, tone to the whole affair. Here's a peek at a cover or two and a small glimpse inside.
But it's time for a quick confession. Two weeks ago I didn't have the foggiest notion of how to accomplish any of this. Thank god for intuitive programming.
Well. That's neither here nor there. The goods are nearly finished. We need only sort and format the Errata, and then this monster will be back in your hands... glorious.
One more note -I saw Brent recently post that he had reached his allotted space for images on blogger. After the tremendous response for the question I asked in the last post, I thought I might try my hand again. Surely, I'm crowding the personal space of whatever limit blogger has allowed for one quiet, blushing blog like this one. What can one do about that without losing content?
