Campaign of the Month: August 2013
Dragons of Autumn
Wolfhound Jack – Your CSS templates inspired me to improve my campaign site and hone my CSS skills.
Kallak – Your code for the alternate character listing saved me loads of design time. Thanks!
Madartiste – Your code for renaming elements in the Navigation Tab bar was a big help and motivated me to design my nested tab containers. What started as a naming preference provided the inspiration for improving the navigation of my wiki. Thank you!
Imagery is a powerful tool for creating memorable associations between what the players experience and the content of the campaign website. I scour the Internet trying to find high-quality representations of the content I relay to my players. If imitation is the highest form of flattery, then the visual art I include on the campaign website is my way of sharing something I find truly beautiful. I owe a lot to the artistic giants upon whose shoulders my website rests.
I try my very best to credit the artist for every image I use. If I use your work and your name is not listed, please let me know so I can tell everyone how awesome you are! If you prefer that I not use your image, again, let me know! Sure, I’ll be kicking stones over not using your awesome art, but I don’t want to rub anyone the wrong way.
