1st Draft - 180 pages to Chronicles!


I received the first draft of the layout from Stan Stice today.  Stan is the designer and proprietor of Dreams and Visions Press.   If you've seen Battlestar Galactica, he is a dopplegänger for Colonel Tye.  The frackin' cylon has gone through the games up to Chronicles  (game #5 of the series) and the 1st draft is already at 180 pages.  With a massive amount of imagery from Angel of Darknesss, Legend, Anniversary and the forth coming Underworld, the book will climb to 600 pages or more!  Of course, that's not feasible.   A large portion of the design presents the imagery full page and doesn't need to be.  So we'll scale some of them down to accommodate all the artwork.  The good news is certainly that there's no lack of material to be included.   Don't worry, we wouldn't dream of leaving anything out!

Below are sample layout images.   Text has not yet been included.   I've got to get started on that as soon as possible. 
  
 

The images are from Tomb Raider - The Last Revelation and include a wire framed, pig-tailed Lara.  Creepy!    Not sure which is more unattractive, the floating eyeballs or the pigtails.

Please remember that this is all subject to change.

I certainly wouldn't dare to even think of not getting one of this for myself! Keep it up! \o/
