Font question

Post by Fenris Ulfhamr » Mon Feb 04, 2019 6:32 pm

Hail- hard at work on that much-delayed module I ‘m writing. I have the header and text fonts to match the core rule book, but does anyone know what initial/drop cap font is used? Also, since I ‘m making a free funnel, am I overlooking any etiquette or legal issues? Many thanks!

Sorry, no idea what the drop-cap font used is...

There may be issues with copying trade-dress. Depends on how you feel about it. The concern would be that by aping the details of the look of the published game, you're implying that your publication is coming from the same source... If you were to go for a license, you could easily clarify that usage with Joseph Goodman directly -- knocking out something for free (which I'm guessing is to be done without the license), you could still shoot an e-mail to the "info" address to ask about it, I suppose...

Thanks, I'll get in touch. I'd rather have the official blessing anyway, and want to give back to the community that has inspired me these past years

I give it in the form of the donated intellectual property, while as well as that of the allied casters who submitted ideas for the project! This casting is enhanced by the blood, sweat, and ink of many! Now to cast it in an area sacred to Goodman while standing on a stack of core rulebooks...

In other news, the complete write-up, including patron taint, is in Angels, Daemons, & Beings Between expanded edition.

Pesh Joomang is a near-anagram of Joseph Goodman!
