    Here's what I was going to use for the front and back covers of the compilation text for all the new awnsheghlien, ersheghlien, and miscellaneous BR materials I've written up over the past several months. As one can see the font for the logo isn't quite right, nor does the sword work particularly well, but I think the rest of it looks pretty good....

    Anyone have comments or know where I can find a good graphic for the sword?

    I think "Legendary Beings and Mythical Monsters" would sound better. It has a more pleasant meter. ^_^

    Beings of myth and legend populate the Birthright setting. In some the corruption of
    Azrai looms like a prophecy of doom, but the corruption of Azrai threatens the souls
    of even Cerilia’s most noble heroes.
    I don&#39;t know. I think that last sentence is a bit shaky. I mean, what comes after the comma is not really a continuation of the part before it nor does it contrast with what is before the "but". I would rephrase that.

    This text, designed for use by Dungeon Masters, contains numerous awnsheghlien and
    ersheghlien for the Birthright setting, including stats, background stories, adventure hooks,
    and their position at the domain level of the campaign.
    Their "positions", I would think.

    Also included is mythological
    information for the Birthright setting that allows a DM to conduct a campaign that
    continues beyond the mortal lives of Player Characters.
    Legendary Beings and Mythic Monsters includes a guide to creating new awnsheghlien and
    ersheghlien, as well as an entire revision of the bloodline system that incorporates long
    standing Birthright themes like bloodtheft, regency collection, fully customizable blood
    abilities for all scions as well as a character class to portray the central characters to the
    setting; awnsheghlien and ersheghlien.
    [/quote]Er, what&#39;s that semicolon doing there before the word "awnsheghlien"? It looks out of place; something seems to be missing. Not only that—that last sentence is way too long, I believe.

    OK, I`ll buy that.

    Yeah, the blurb on the back was just slapped on there. It was mostly the

    formatting of the logo and the front/back covers that I was curious

    about... but in this particular case I was thinking of the contrast between

    the temptation of awnsheghlien transformation for those of Azrai`s

    bloodline, which features pretty prominently in almost all the character

    descriptions in the text versus the physical menace those creatures

    represent to the scions of Cerilia as the perennial villains of the

    setting, along with a hint of the threat to their own bloodline becoming

    corrupted through bloodtheft, and as a general "power corrupts"

    theme. It`s also a slight nod to the blurb on the back of Blood Enemies,

    which has a similar (somewhat shaky) introductory paragraph. Since that

    explanatory text would be a bit long, and a bit too specific I`d prefer

    something more vague and generalized.



    >Their "position-s-", I would think.



    Right-o.

    Yeah, that could be rephrased to make it less stilted, and the whole things

    should probably be two or three sentences... I`ll rewrite it.

    I think the "graphic" needs a bit of work... The parts you must take care of are the use of paletted or tiny source images: it degrades the final pictures quality dramatically. If you don&#39;t mind, I could help you with it; even if you don&#39;t want my help, allow my giving you some advice:
    • Use photorealistic quality pictures: blurring or smudging the image is a common "cheating" technique to replicate higher quality after you resize an image.
    • NEVER edit an image in lower colour or size resolutions: always use the nearest to the the end result resolution.

    If you want to put together a logo I`d be more than happy with that.

    Okay, I&#39;ll see what I can do... I wish I had a scanner, but it will have to do for now.

    I will send you and image over when I finish the draft to ask your opinion on it.
