B5 dcc quick start rules?

Post by mutazoid »

I just thought is there any B5 sized DCC Quick start rules?
Id like to print and drop some in book boxes we have in our neighborhood.

Thanks for any input.

All of the Quickstarts to date have been US letter size, same as the majority of modules and other items...

I think that mutazoid has a great point and I would love to see DCC quick start rules in pamphlet size. Also, without a sample adventure in them. I'd like to have some table copies for newbies to look at during play, and a quick start pamphlet would be more useful than a full rulebook. (Just not the same layout only at 50% font size. I can't handle small fonts. :( )

I tried a crude re-format of the Quick Start PDF you can download through Goodman Games, and when I tried to print to a pamphlet PDF the size exploded on me. Apparently I need to figure out a better way to make PDFs than "Print to PDF" on my computer. :P

You need to make sure that you have selected the desired page size, and that you have told the program to fit the page to the new size.

Or, at least, that is how it works using Adobe.
