file VTES Rulebook - Design Ideas

28 Sep 2015 16:53 - 28 Sep 2015 16:54 #73393 by gcwilson67
Hi

As per the announcement in the September Newsletter for volunteers to design a pdf rulebook, here is a link to view my proposed page layouts and cover ideas.

I have tried to maintain the style and look of VTES in the layouts and I am aware there maybe other things to consider should it be decided to go ahead with any of the designs.

I would be very interested to hear what you all think, or if anyone has any other ideas.

Cheers

Getting rid of the small card size format is a good idea.

Keeping relevant related things in one page would be optimal but possibly not really feasible (so spreads are probably the way to go). Using artwork etc would probably be a good idea to fill in empty gaps and overall to make the layouts more loose.

I think they all looked fantastic. V4 of the rule book interior was probably my fave, but I'd be happy with any of them.

With regards to the cover, I really like #2 and #3. But if I had to choose one, I would go for #3.

As to the rulebook interior, I think that versions 3 and 5 are the most appealing to me. But given my cover choice above, version 5 seems to be the best match for it.

Looks really nice. As Lönnka said, I appreciate the move away from the tiny format. But what is actual intended format. A4? A5?

Stylewise I like the pdf rulebook #1 the most appealing, also because it matches the style of the players guide to some degree.

With regards to the cover I like #1 best. Not the least, because the Vampire: the Dark Ages books look very similar.

Wow - I appreciate your work here!

For me, either cover 2 or 3, with a slight preference for version 2.
For the rulebook, I like version 5 best.
