ePub GM Referance

Here and there I’ve mentioned to people that eInk readers just are not well suited for RPGs because the page turn time does not suit looking up information in a rule book. Then it hit me, I had just set up almost all the reference material I would need on three pages of a GM Screen. Turning back and forth on that few pages would not be time consuming at all.

I knew an ePub with the same information would take more pages but it would still be relatively little (it turns out to be 8 pages).

So here it is, a GM reference with nearly anything you’d need to look up during the game.

The Artifact ePub GM Reference

I had to hand code a bulk of the HTML for this, which is why I’m posting this so late in the day. Wrestling with the ePub format is not easy it’s essentially raw HTML and CSS. I tried exporting it from Pages a few different ways and eventually had to strip all the formatting out to make it behave itself. Layout and tables are time consuming to hand write and that’s mostly what this is.

I’ve tried it on my Kobo, if you’ve got a different eReader and want to take a look, let me know how it works for you.
