So good I've already done that.
When I say hard, I mean ""it takes me longer than a minute to do."
But you got me to thinking about doing this for another game now only just for myself and friends to see though. I was to do a written story of the group years ago but put it off because it became too much hassle trying to get so many people's "creations" the way they wanted. But then I was thinking after seeing this to save from the masses in that situation to maybe do it on my characters alone and maybe they just have "recurring roles". I figure if I did it visually like you did that might work out better since it's a superhero game. Sort of tells you which one in there, huh?
Go for it! We're living in a day and age where friends of mine make albums from their laptops, program code while hiking the North Cascades, and can make cats do the darnedest things in Photoshop.
Let you imagination run wild and don't worry about it getting caught on anything - you can't catch what you can't contain.
Edit: Also ST fonts can be found at
if you wanted/needed them for the title pages.
I actually used ST fonts from Tal Shiar on the title pages. I have "Enterprise" for the title and the episode name; "Federation" for the author credits.
Once I have a better front-page format done, I'll update the entire thing.
I insist on comic-style fonts for the dialogue though. It just wouldn't be the same without "DigitalStrip" - it's highly readable without taking up too much horizontal space.
