Hey gang, I've just laid out the text for a fan faction, but have been having a hard time pinpointing the font that's used for the general ability descriptions.

So far, I've gotten the Luminari font for the faction title, but the font apps online haven't been doing it for the actual text descriptions on the board.

Thanks!

Well, Baskerville and its variations seem to fit best for me, particularly Libre Baskerville

I can't ever get the font's thickness or size to fit perfectly each time, but the shape seems to be perfect.

Baskerville Pro. It's funny: Cole was very strict about us not accidentally mixing in Libre Baskerville in production.

Well this solves that problem for me lol

I've spent much longer than I should been on trying to slightly alter Libre Baskerville in order to make it look like the font that Root uses, but it was always slightly off and it bothered me

He would give me a Reese's peanut butter cup every time I did it right.

Trying to create/find general assets for creating faction boards. It would be nice if someone could share a template. (Although, most seem to just estimate/paste over existing boards.)

What programs are you working with?
It would make sense to build a library of different boxes as vector files and some cropped pixel art from the original boards.

I can provide the few i made, but its not nearly enough for a full faction board.

/Edit I consulted with a web designer friend of mine and will prepare flexible vector files based on his suggestions. Though I won't be home the next few hours and the templates might take a while to create

Neat, if anything comes of it share it here!
I figured there were several such board art pieces out there, and was curious to see what had been made.

I could share this, but its made in "Affinity Designer" and i'm not sure how well these vector montages translate into other file formats (fe psd).

However i can make some "standard sample boxes" and export them as png with transparency, if that would help you guys.

edit:
here is some vectors extracted from the marquise (as png):

Your demo looks amazing, but an error turns up when I use the link, saying "Access to i.imgur.com was denied. You don't have authorization to view this page.

Thanks for your help!
