TAS project: what font?

Postby MonkeyX » Tue Jul 07, 2020 1:14 pm

Hey all. I have an idea for a TAS title and although I’ve got the indesign files I’m not sure which fonts the 2e books use, does anyone know at all?

Looking through the files I also cannot see the hex background used in the adventures. Can anyone supply me with a pad of jpeg of it?

Did you open the template in Adobe InDesign? I believe Mongoose uses several non-standard fonts. I converted the styles to similar fonts in the TAS work that I have done since I did not have the same fonts that they used.

Thanks for replying. I’m not using indesign unfortunately, I’m going with Scribus. The dies from drive through have the background image but not the hexes. I was able to get those with page plus and it looks like they are set at a certain opacity but I’m not sure exactly what level.
