The name of the font used on the cover of my record is called “Dirty Headline.” When I was rushing to get the CD package done, I kinda just grabbed a neat font without checking to see if the font was freeware or not. So in order to put things right, I searched DaFONT to find the author’s name, then googled him up. In doing so, I came across his main company site: Cumberland Games and Diversions. S. John Ross is crazy into paper-based role-playing games, and has done RPG design for such heavies as White Wolf, Steve Jackson Games and Wizards of the Coast.
“Dirty Headline” is indeed freeware (whew! and there are a number of other free fonts on the site), but I was totally geeking out over Ross’ HexPaper fonts, a font for RPGers that can be used to create hex paper, quad paper, and even isometric graphs for “angled view” dungeon maps. I don’t know why I find this so awesome. Oh wait, right, I’m a big nerd.
Overall, I really dig Ross’ site and its unabashed love of the paper RPG. There are far worse day jobs.
