Scribus for RPG Layout – A Template

Since I released my video on RPG layout , I have gotten a number of comments and subscriber who were interested in more resources. Since I am currently in the midst of procrastinating prior to GenCon 2016, I thought I would pull together a quick Scribus template for that other people could use to get started.

There is a zip file Scribus Template which includes the full Scribus file, all of the free (open-source) fonts, and a sample image I created. That scribus file has a handful of pages laid out with example text, including an inner cover page, credits page, table of contents, and a couple of main content pages. This also includes a number of paragraph styles (header 1, header 2, header 3, body text, example text) and character styles (emphasis, small cap emphasis) that can be used to get started. The basic fonts used for this document work together, have a variety of weights, and generally look professional. I encourage you to use this as a baseline to get started in laying out your own games.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!
