Jason Lutes Jeremy Strandberg Hey, so I’m wanting to make an almanac that looks fancy like in the book for printout and bragging rights. What fonts did you use? And what program would you recommend for formatting it? I think it would be great if I could throw together a template that me (and others) can just punch info into.
More specifically, I want to combine the formats of the abbreviated as well as the detailed almanac so I have the detail of the second almanac example but in a more complete nested style of the first.
I.E. Region->Area->Steading-> Site
With the Region, the area having spaces for more detailed discoveries (such as sites) like in the detailed almanac entry, with all the levels intact.

Twofalls is a medium-sized island, roughly 10 miles wide and 25 miles across. It is so named for its two waterfalls that fountain over each of its sides, cascading down from the river and
• The unbroken spread of fluffy white cloud overhead, close enough you feel you could reach out and touch it.

• FALL: Grass aged into hues of orange, brown, and red as they turn for the winter.
• WINTER: Frigid air kept at bay by the warmth of the cloud-dimmed sun.
• SPRING: Deep greens and bright reds turn the landscape vividly bright.
Within the region, I have an area:
The Still Moor-Area

A tract of uncultivated grassland making up the majority of Twofalls, broken only by the natural curves of the hills.
• A cool, dry, wind sweeping the grasses into waves of emerald.
• A gentle isolation strengthened by the utter stillness of the wide-open flats
• The burble of a stream at the edge of hearing.
• What protects this place from danger?
• What do they say about the sound of the wind in the grass?
• What do you know about this place after growing up in this area?
• Why is this place beautiful?
Within the area, I have sites and steadings.

Human Town, Safe, Civilized, Moderate, Steady, Watch, Power (Divine), Religion (Ilmater), Trade(NewFlower)
Sorry for the long-windedness, but I hope that all makes sense.
