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!

wyvern: surfduke: You should be able to post links to any files or images already on a website somewhere by just adding the URL when you set-up a post using the full "Create Post" Forum post editor (i.e. NOT the "Quick Reply" version).

wyvern: I've found Photos loading the first image slowly every time I've switched on the computer in recent times. It's been OK after that, but seems like it can't quite remember how to do it just after it's been woken up...

surfduke: Do you want a preview pdf of the Jupiter 2 here? If so how do I post it.
May 27, 2020 0:39:56 GMT -9
Vermin King: That would explain why 'Photos' loaded slower this weekend. It was 'improved'
May 26, 2020 8:07:25 GMT -9
wyvern: It wasn't some fresh Windows "improvement" then... I noticed the icon for the MS image viewer, "Photos", changed a few days back as well. Doesn't seem to have changed the app, as far as I can tell. Yet.

lightning: Glad that only a restart was involved. I wouldn't have the energy to much more today :-)

Vermin King: I had a scare and a half. Went to open a pdf for the first time today and nothing happened. Checked All Programs and saw that Reader updated on 05/23. Restarting fixed it. Whew

Vermin King: Really worn out tonight, so when I'm like that I just look for things I used to have, but don't any more. I got the Zippy models and am rebuilding my Tirick/TCF Gaming folder. How the heck would anyone build his 1/1000 Battletech mechs without enlarging

Toman: yea I have been. pretty cool project. I've done a few scratch builds like that but not as large. cutting individual stones or carving stones in foam sucks.

Vermin King: Anybody else following Mauther's home-made Playmobile castle build? Looks really good so far

cowboyleland: Good point. Maybe make the wing feathers seperately so that the wind could get through them?
May 14, 2020 6:10:23 GMT -9
squirmydad: We had two operators for the hawk though, one to carry the weight and the other to flap the wings.
May 13, 2020 11:02:25 GMT -9
squirmydad: Probably silk and dowels. I assisted in the construction of a giant hawk puppet for an indoor show, probably about the same size as that pegasus.
May 13, 2020 11:01:49 GMT -9
Vermin King: It's got to be really light. The article dealt with parade puppets. I don't think I'd want to be trying to control that in a stiff wind
May 13, 2020 4:21:20 GMT -9
lightning: that's a nice pegasus!
May 13, 2020 4:10:32 GMT -9
shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
