Homebrew Content Resources

Sun 30 May 2021, 04:57

I've started creating resources for those planning their own homebrew in a similar vein to the Alpha Rules we've seen.

Homebrew Resources
Google Drive Folder
Character Sheets: in A4 and US Letter Sizes
Layout and Design Elements: Affinity Publisher Template (!) and Spread Backgrounds
VTT Aides: Minimalist Title Screens, Combat Tracker, and Journey Tracker
World Maps: Independent world map in PDF and static image files (with or without grid)
Physical Aides: Blank adversary cards for quick reference at the table

Typefaces (Fonts)
Logo - Albertus or Albertus Nova by Monotype (free substitute: Infini by Graphisme en France)
Title / Sections / Headings - Aniron
Body / Paragraphs - ITC New Baskerville by ITC (free substitute: Vollkorn by Friedrich Althausen via Google Fonts)
Sidebars - Niveau Grotesk by HVD (free substitute: Urbanist by Corey Hu via Google Fonts)

Colors
Red Headings (Final) #9A342F
Red Headings (Alpha) #C6463A
Brown Headings #614F3D
Light Red Table #EDE7E2
Off-White Tables #FBFAF8

Homebrew Adventure Site and Character Generators Will update after launch, currently implements parts of Forbidden Lands with Tolkien flavor Github

Any other things people would like? Affinity Publisher Templates? Icons for various cultures and regions of middle earth? Rune dice symbols?

Thanks a lot for this!
Those kind of resources did come very handy for the first edition fan material.

I've added character background and adventure site generators. Pretty robust: everything from Lindon to Rhun, Forochel to Harad.

These aren't for character sheets -- just fun prompts.

Great sheet!

"Scan" should be put instead of "Search".

For ease of use

Hope and Shadow should be together.
Endurance should have not load and fatigue next to it

Any regularly changing stat should have room for pencil updates.

Already used them to update a "Knight of Dol-Amroth" character template we used in 1st ed, great resources! Thanks a lot for the work!

...I'll also use them to update our 1st age homebrew rules, and house rules booklet if it's ok with you (yes, we have a whole book of house rules, with near 70 pages, because my players love to do some VERY detailed stuff on their fellowship phase)

I've made the edits and hope they work for everyone. Someone asked for higher contrast so the reds are a little more vibrant!
More space for armors and weapons, scan, Load/Shadow in their appropriate spots.

Cheers!

These are fantastic resources, thank you for doing this.

If anyone was able to make the PDF form fillable, I would be eternally grateful, but also understand if nobody is willing/able to do so, especially as it hopefully won't be too long until we get an official version.

Thanks again for this wonderful work!
