KNIGHT CITY: The Introductory Booklet Has Been Written...


I like to think I take a great deal of pride in everything I do, especially in regards to blogging and my hobbies, but that doesn't mean I'm always proud of the end result.

Somethings things will just get away from me, I'll be beaten by technology, or I'll simply make an all-too-human error in the production process.

But yesterday, the proof draft of Welcome To Knight City, the introductory booklet to my proposed Villains & Vigilantes campaign, arrived from Lulu.

And I was as giddy as a schoolgirl. It's a long time since I've been so thrilled by something I created. I wanted to show someone straightaway, but had to wait for Rachel to come from work to share it with her.

She was suitably impressed and thought the members of the Tuesday Knights would appreciate having a printed version of this, rather than just a PDF.

Sure, it needs some minor tweaking (the layout is for a PDF, so it can't handle page numbering to my satisfaction, for instance. And I don't like having a cover on it, but I'm sure there are workarounds there).

A lot of time and effort went into this booklet, and I'm delighted that it seems to have paid off.

You can take a gander at the PDF here, if you want. Any comments would be welcome.

I'm hoping, when the time is right, the Tuesday Knights will be inspired by the contents of this short booklet - and from perusing the campaign website - to create truly memorable, and enduring, superheroes.

  1. SWEET!
    So this booklet. You are printing them out for each player correct?
    Maybe have a special Knight City formatted character sheet in back where they can put their hero.
    OR take a page (literally) from Jason Vey and put together a character folio.
    Here is his for D&D 5e, https://www.rpgnow.com/product/250388/5e-Fantasy-Character-Journal
    OR
    Here is mine for CineUnisystem, https://app.box.com/s/hsukxdbaoc2erkow2pmiw2m9eycmswhw
    But this looks like a lot of fun!

    1. Thank you so much. Yes, every player will get a copy of the booklet (once I've finalised my tweaking).

      It might sound strange, but I don't really use character sheets per se, instead I create a simple, usually one-page, write-up for each character on a plain sheet of paper. Keeping it simple ;)

      I do love your Unisystem booklet though, Tim!
