    Default Assistance Required with new Legend Supplements

    Over the past year or so, I have been working on several Legend supplements, and have reached the point where I need some help to continue.

    The text has been completed on at least two supplements, but I need help on content, proof-reading, editing, layout and illustrations.

    So, I am looking for people to assist in the following areas:
    • Content Answering the following questions: Is it suitable for publication? What shouldn't be included? What extra needs to be included? What needs changing?
    • Proof-reading Correcting any grammatical errors, typos and inconsistencies.
    • Editing Cutting down and reformatting of the text (I may think I am perfect, but others quite rightly disagree)
    • Layout Apparently, dumping it from Word isn't the right way to do the layout, so I need someone who knows what they are doing.
    • Illustrations I cannot draw, but I can do some rudimentary diagrams and maps, so I need people who can give me small drawings (Black and White preferred) to illustrate the text.


    Payment would be in the form of a free copy of the supplement, plus a share of any profits the supplements make. I would not expect this to be particularly high, though.

    If anyone is interested, please contact me at soltakss@yahoo.com for more information.

    The Legend supplements in the pipeline are:
    • The Land of Ice and Stone (Roleplaying in the Old Stone Age around 40,000 BC)
    • The Dark Isles (Britain during the Dark Ages)
    • The Dark Isles Companion(Cults and places of the Dark Isles)
    • Legend Sci-Fi (A Sci-Fi conversion of the Legend Rules)
    • Robyn Hode (Using Robin Hood with Legend)

    Yes. I have a number of people who have offered help, but am looking for some more.

    I'd be willing to help, though admittedly I'd only be good for proofreading, editing, and possibly content. Can't draw well at all (unless you want stick figures) and I'm not proficient enough with messing with layouts to be of any actual use.

    Definite buys for me when they come out! Wish I could help, but my proofreading skills are rudimentary at best. I could proofread in a stitch for you, for obvious typos, but no remuneration would be required, as I just wouldn't be bringing the grammar skills to bat to call for it. I'd just like to help in any way with moving products, that I happen to want to get my hands on, to the digital shelves of drivethrurpg

    That said, I'm very psyched to see this stuff in the pipeline!

    I can help with the proof reading, correcting grammar and stuff if you want. But I am English, so I tend to spell accordingly. If you're using American spelling, you would need to tell me.

    Sent you a PM but it looks like it went into limbo. Contact me if you would like to use me for anything.

    Sorry, real life has interfered with things - January is just about my busiest and most expensive month.

    I will get back to people fairly soon.
