POLL: C&C Digest Books and Classic Boxes UPDATE

Posted by Stephen Chenault (Creator)

Greetings!

We are well on our way (about 300 shy) to your 13K stretch reward for the Castles & Crusades Boxed Sets and Digest Kickstarter! We've been doing a little research and we want YOUR input.

Currently, we are planning on a final size of 5.5 x 7.5. We are simply shrinking the original 8.5 x 11 books down to a smaller books size.This makes the digest books remain a manageable page count.

However...

Our Art Director, Peter Bradley, believes that he can keep the page count intact IF he loses a little art and increases the final trim size to 6 x 9.

Which would you prefer? Take our 1 question poll HERE

Let us know what you think and spread the word! 

Thanks,

Stephen & The Troll Lords

      What’s the verdict on the font size?

      I agree with Orko- see a sample first and then decide.

      Any chance we could get a sample page of the 6 x 9 AND the 5.5 x 7.5 versions to compare before voting?

      What type of font size increase are we looking at going from one size format to another? Is it only one font size up? I'm just wondering if there's some middle ground/wiggle room where the extra 0.5 x 1.5 bump could increase the font size without changing anything? For example, if it was being increased by 2 font sizes, could we just do 1 instead?

      I find having the digest to hardcover to page translation being exactly the same as quite handy. Then again, being able to read the digest versions with less eye strain is equally as practical. Just checking to see of there's some compromise to get both? If there's not, then the sample pages of both formats would help even more with making a decision, in my opinion.

      Please let us know the final decision before the kickstarter ends. My pledge will depend on the final formatting.

      Please don’t alter the pagination. One of the best aspects of the digest sized books is the pagination is identical to the full size version.

      I would truly appreciate a larger font! The way that WOTC did the 4E rules compendium/ Heroes books are a nice format.

      Any chance of a sample page to see how it looks to the eye?

      And will a digital copy be made available at some point? It seems the format would look good on a 7/8” tablet.

      Well, my poor eyes would prefer a larger font!
