FF X and Rules PDF

I've spent most of the day working on Forgotten Futures X, and also decided to do something I've been putting off for a while - converting the big revised set of game rules to PDF, and putting it on line as a free download. While there have been PDF versions for a while, they're based on the first version of the rules and don't include a lot of the background stuff I added in the last revision.

Made a good start on that this evening - got the first third or so reformatted, which is basically all of the main game rules and a big chunk of the stuff on role playing. Hopefully I'll get the rest done tomorrow. The full monte looks to run to 100+ pages, my first bash at making a PDF came out at a bit over a megabyte which isn't too bad. This is undoubtedly because the illustrations are all pretty small.

FF X is going pretty well, I've made pictures to illustrate the stories, written the introduction, and got a few paragraphs into the text describing real-world and fictional clubs. What I'm trying to avoid is huge swaths of stuff cut and pasted from Wikipaedia and other web sites; it'd be easy enough to do it that way, but I'm not convinced the results would be worth it. Probably better to use my own words, keep things brief, and add links to Wikipaedia etc. where relevant.

So - a certain amount of progress has been made, and hopefully I'll have some of the more interesting stuff ready to post for comments in the next week or two.
