A New Resource for Designers and Fans Using Affinity Publisher

Blades Affinity Templates is a series of files meant to guide designers, GMs, and fans of Blades in the Dark in crafting their own iconic playbooks and crews.  Contained within are a series of documents and files with easy to use elements as well as helpful tips and examples.

For an example of a finished playbook using this layout and method, see the Sleuth.

These files use assets from Blades in the Dark, by John Harper. Moth-Lands is not associated with John or Evil Hat in any way shape or form. Please do not place any of these assets up for sale anywhere without their express permission.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
