Making a UWP Quick Reference Sheet

Postby greyseasunder » Mon Aug 24, 2020 6:59 pm

Hi folks,
Old-school gamer here, but VERY new to Traveller and brand new to this forum.
So, one of the things that keeps giving me a bit of pain is trying to easily decipher the UWP codes for worlds. So, to try and alleviate that, I'm working up a UWP Quick Reference to use and share with folks. Question- does anyone know what fonts are used in the official books? And, if anyone has the page templates or high-quality background and/or on-page images/separators, that would also be fantastic. I just want to keep it looking similar to the official resources. Not looking to make a dime off this, just want to create something easy to parse, something that looks good and something to share with the community.
Any help, greatly appreciated.

I believe Optima is one of the core Traveller fonts.

Getting there- got sidetracked prepping for upcoming games. I've got the page laid out- a single 8.5x11 portrait page, background is similar style to the books. Top is the UWP, with tables/breakdown beneath. I have to do a little sorting but hope to have it complete soon.
