Cleaning the my office table again. Maps and half written adventures and crap I don't even remember getting it amongst the piles. Sorting and organizing, throwing away and filing, lifting and wiping. I've got pieces of the next Manor all over the place. I have managed to pull together all my files for Starter Adventures, but found I have lots of work to do.
First off, I apparently used 9 font for the first half and a 10 font for the second half. That irritates me to no end. The wife says the font is still a little small. Arg.
Second, I need to adjust the margins. Inside margins need to be a bit bigger so when the book is bound you don't lose text into the center.
Third, I need to reformat the middle section. The majority of the book is in a two column format and for the tavern section I did a single column thinking it would look okay. After printing it I don't think it looks good mixing the two.
Forth, some minor writing needs done. The last section of new monsters and magic items a few entries still need completed.
And lastly, I need to study up on how to transfer the file to Lulu and RPGNow to get it into book form.
I was looking at the prices. I think my Starter Adventures will come in around 56 pages. I see some of the prices have gone up. I'm not sure what the price point will be yet, but hardly a concern until I get all my crap completed.
Editors, Luckily I have two on board for sure and a third I'm sure that will help clean up any sloppiness on my part.
And stop being distracted by all the other maps I find and wonder what I can do with them. The picture above is something I made messing around with Xara. It's the entry way to the Temple of the Dead. How can I not be distracted by this?
