vector symbol

Post by Azure Admiral » Thu Feb 14, 2013 9:09 pm

Hi guys,

I've a questions for D&D map making, I hope this is not the wrong section.

I'm trying to learn on Inkscape about Classic D&D hex mapping. I was wonder if there is a .svg or other Inkscape vector compatible format for the excellent D&D symbols Thorf made for Ai.

Anyone has some information about this?


Thank you (and thank you Thorf for creating wonderful mystarian maps, those are great!)

I've got exactly what you need (complete with a "hex" snap-to grid). Give me a day to put files together and I'll post it here.

I forgot that firefox (and maybe other browsers) tries to interpret svgz files. Please rename the following file to have a .svgz extension:

And if you're wanting to add text, you might be interested in MyZtaraSmooth, my attempt at a Feinen-like typeface:

Wow! Thanks for posting this. I was completely unaware that Inkscape could be used this way. Now I need to read a tutorial. LOL!

Thank you, there's a lot to dig in!
