I'm wondering, does anybody have any fonts they'd like to recommend? In particular I'm looking for fonts for titles for a system focused on adventure, with an emphasis on the Pulp fiction of the 30 and 40s.

Or, fonts good for titles for RPGs on fantasy adventure.

Don't forget the links, and please name names.

For me "realism" is more about whether the consequences flow from the premise.

I find classic D&D "unrealistic" because, despite all the magic and races and stuff, people seem to live medieval lives.

Why would you use medieval construction, or live in disease filled cities, when you can train people to be wizards or clerics? When you can make magic items?

Why don't they use bag-of-holding like technologies to transport huge amounts of construction material, or create cranes? Floating discs should be common - they'd have hoverboards before we do. Medieval world? They should be living in the freakin' future!

... unless there are appropriate limits. Don't forget - one type of technology often displaces another. If clerics can do magical healing, but it takes twenty years of study to get to that point, and they can only heal one or two people a day... it may well be that medicine gets "stuck" at a medieval level, because most of the people who would otherwise become doctors and do medical research are instead becoming clerics and improving their clerical spells (which might have a harder limit than medical research) - and with the limit on the number of people who can be treated, the obvious "solution" is to train more clerics - but maybe not everyone has the aptitude. So you end up with the majority of the people in the city unable to get healing, despite this advanced healing magic. And we've now got a "realistic" explanation for why this is a consequence of the premise of healing magic.

Yesterday was an adventure. Adventures wear you out, and I haven't recovered from this one yet. So I'm taking a day off from the Web so I can be ready to start posting on Monday. May Sunday be fun for you, and inspire you.

Either that, or a source of stories you can scare your grandchildren with in times to come.

The app is called Oxygen Office. Oxygen Office will not intall, something about a new version already being installed, but nothing about where it might be found. I asked cortana (Windows10) and she had no idea. OO is a lie an a fraud, be warned, stay away. The People behind OO are to be avoided like a virulent virus.
