Customizing Compendium - NEW 2nd Edition!

I've been working on this for the past few months, and I finally got around to finalizing it. This is a guide book and reference for making Heroscape customs. Lately I've been hearing from a lot of people new to customizing, and I thought this would be a great resource to help them get up-to-speed. Plus I use it myself all the time!

It covers pretty much every aspect of custom card making, including design, costing, playtesting, aesthetics, and a comprehensive style guide for wording. It is also a living work, meaning it will be updated based on information from new releases. There were a lot of other contributors to this work besides myself, and I tried to give them all credit in the intro. If I inadvertently left someone out, please let me know so I can include them.

I look forward to hearing comments and suggestions from all of you!

Click on the thumbnail picture of the cover to download the PDF (about 11 MB).

Re: Customizing Compendium

This is an incredible piece of work with an impressive scope and it deserves to be an announcement all its own, in my opinion! I hope, at the very least, this gets some Week @ Scapers love!

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.

I didn't write that section, but I'll look into it. Thanks for pointing it out!

I do what I can, but this is your project through and through.

Re: Customizing Compendium

That's incredible GreyOwl. No wonder you haven't been around as much, you've been working your feathers off with that project. Awesome contribution to the community.

Do you mean the download isn't working, or that you can't open it after downloading? Both are working fine for me...
