I’ve been working on an custom layout for playbooks. My goal was to move the character building info to a separate sheet and colocate all the moves for easier reference during play. I play tested this once with people who had never played DW before and it went so so. It wasn’t obvious to them that the “character builder” page was discardable once the relevant information was copied to the character sheet.
Left me a little discouraged and questioning my goal. I wanted to try and work the class intro text into the playbook so newer players could get a feel for the class. I also wanted to have a flexible and spacious character sheet though which I’m beginning to feel is more of a feature for experienced players.
The other unique feature of this is the pdf is that it is generated from HTML using print CSS. This let’s me do some things like have a button switch between races or backgrounds. I can also easily generate a playbook for a new or customized class. I’m pretty proud of the system but unsure of the product.
Anyway I sat on this for a few weeks and didn’t have any inspiration to change anything. Rather than letting it molder, I’m sharing it here. Thoughts? Does this look like a playbook layout you’d want to use?
