Yeah, perhaps publishers could have a 'Tip Jar' item that is flagged 'PWYW'. Not sure if OneBookshelf would let that fly, but make it clear that it's simply a THANK YOU pdf that you can pay for, if you'd like to contribute to a publisher.
Do you mean a product page for a PWYW tip jar for a publisher? That's an interesting idea.
That reminds me, Dryw the Harper, do you plan on uploading any of your Imperfect People when you offer your Imperfect Castle for sale? As practice run, preview, promotion, PWYW? That's probably a much better idea than PWYW for the castle and expansions...
Thanks, having trouble accessing my sites, not sure if the fault is in Transmit or GoDaddy. I've pulled all the pics from Dryw's release thread to use, some more from Dryw's photobucket, couple from the FDG board, some that I took myself, some that people submitted-still missing a huge mound of pics though. I'll post the wish list soon tomorrow for peoples to review and see if they want to contribute to the gallery. Every pic helps.
So by tomorrow I meant monday...as some bug in my head is wringing gallons of fluid out of my brain, all from the left side though...vision getting blurry, head aching....going back to bed for a few days.

Thanks Anne, every bit helps.
I re-worked the frame a touch and wanted some quick feedback on the title font. Blackmoor is what I've been using, but is it too busy for the titles? Here's what I'm considering;
Font= Humana Serif
Font= Lucida Blackletter
I just want to make sure it's legible from the start as with the volume of Imperfect files and images it'd be a bit tedious to rework everything later on. Let me know what you think of the font choices please.
I like second one (font = Black) - IMHO both with style and very clear / easy to read at the same time. But you will need slightly more space (taller orange banner) because of "f" letter.
Lucida Blackletter - not bad, second choice - still less easy to read than Black
Blackmore - too heavy / clumsy - not easy to read (at least for me) Century - IMO not matching series style Humana Serif - kinda too cartoonish?
My vote is Lucida Blackletter:
1) Because it is next closest to the Cardboard Warriors font (Blackmoor, ne c'est pas?) 2) Because it is next closest in readability to Black 3) Because it seems to be others' second choice
Therefore, Lucida Blackletter is the Imperfect Font!
At least until the man himself weighs in...
P.S. squirmydad In what condition and method would you like the Imperfect Pictures? I've got good shots of at least the Gypsy and Closed Wagons, maybe the Open Wagon and even more. Would Disco Infernals make the cut? on the dance floor? ;D
P.P.S. 4) Because it is actually the one I like the best of the bunch!

Sorry Anne, decided I liked that big fancy loop coming off the "I" in the Black font.
Pic submissions; mainly not blurry is the biggest thing. If they fit into a 9"x7" frame with a light, or contrasty, or at least intersting background-that's good. Send me what you've got I'll see if I can use it.
I know I've got a number of these already cut out... elementals, giants, monks, swashbucklers, orientals, ships crew, townsfolk, zombie soldiers... If I don't see someone else post pics, I'll try to cobble something together this weekend.
Pages are a little messed up. The link to the second page is using the wrong graphic (and the page 2 graphic is on a image that should say "cutfiles included."
Also, on page 2 I can't click to get any of the PDFs that don't have a thumbnail image.
-The "No Image" file links haven't been enabled as I was waiting for pics, I turned them on today. -IWeb is a little jumpy with graphics; every time I do an update I see the same errors that you pointed out, they go away by hitting refresh. Once everything is in place the pages should stabilize. Should.
Thanks again Afet, pages updated!

oldschooldm: Yup. More power to anyone who tries it. It will only whet the appetite for people who want paper minis that were designed to be paper minis. :-) Fronts and Backs FOREVER! :-) [... it's bait, don't bite it! ... ]

cowboyleland: Now I have seen it. It doesn't advance our hobby, but anyone with half a brain who wanted 2nd rate figures could easily figure this out for themselves so I guess he isn't doing any harm.

berneart76: well, this is fun, (not) transferring all my papercrafting sets into the cloud. The stuff I got from DriveTrhruRPG was simple with their library desktop app,but my other stuff, sometimes with multiple duplicate copies is entertaining.

berneart76: Vermin King I usually use a mix of drybrush/watercolor/photocopy and occasionally posterizing at different levels of opacity.
Feb 26, 2019 20:46:54 GMT -9
berneart76: Vermin King, that's similar to the enhancing that I do on my texturing. I've found that sometimes I need to scale up or scale down the image (usually by 50 or 25 percent down or 200 or 300 percent up) to make get the enhancements to look "right"
Feb 26, 2019 20:44:53 GMT -9
Vermin King: On the zebras, I did multiple enhancements and cartoon filters and used them at 100%, and they still didn't look that different than the photos
Feb 26, 2019 12:27:26 GMT -9
Vermin King: When I make a figure or terrain piece based on a photo, I clean it up and align things to look 'right', then I create another layer and do enhancing and cartoonizing on it. I then adjust opacity over the photo image until it looks good. On the zebras,

Vermin King: berneart76, do you mean giving them green or purple manes and tails? and a few piercings? maybe a cig hanging out of their mouths?

Vermin King: cartoonizing a zebra doesn't do much

Vermin King: And due to the snow, I'm off tonight. I am going to miss the cash on the paycheck, but I'm glad they want their employees to be safe

ignatious: Actually I was referring to the two previous posts. I was trying to be subtle in order to sublimate the crassness. Read them again, but in Mel Brooks voice while he is winking, and nudging the person to his right.

Vermin King: Sure. Euphemize us
Feb 8, 2019 18:40:48 GMT -9
ignatious: would anyone care for a euphemism?

cowboyleland: We hadn't had snow for a few days. Last night the plow came down my street and did nothing but fill every ones driveways back in. Just for practice, I guess.

Vermin King: In KC we had an ice storm (with thunder sleet) the other night. Left things drivable, but last night the plow came down my street. They took all the rough edges off. Might as well have ran a Zamboni...
