The legal fine print at the bottom of this document ascribes all copyright to WoC--even the original material that the author created. That's not what's required by DMGuild or WoC. The author gets to keep copyright in his or her original creations. This is what the DMGuild FAQ suggests putting on content created for DMGuild--note that it includes a copyright notice for the content creator:

Feedback: Office Online does not like the formatting of this document. It changes it to a single column and a bit of a mess.

Hi all. I've downloaded the fonts and replaced them in the template, but the Junction font looks extremely weird - a little bunched up, and slightly pixellated. Has anyone else had this issue, or even better, know how to fix it?

Cheers!

Have you tried changing the display performance? "View>Display Performance>High Quality Performance" You could also switch to Preview under Screen Mode to see if it's a problem with the file. I used to get that pixellation issue all the time, but it turns out that it's not really an issue. It's just the workspace using lower quality graphics by default to make the program run a little more efficiently.

Thanks for the reply, much appreciated. I haven't produced anything with it yet, so it could well be the workspace, which would be the best outcome :)

The "Lorem Ipsum" is commonly used in web design, writing, etc as a placeholder for text content. By doing so, you can see how the template should look with completed content. Its essentially "Fill in the blanks" whereas the "Blanks" are the latin.

I too found difficulty in the fact that the filler text was not English, for some reason it messed with my head and so the document does not help me as much as it would have with (Insert text here about such and such). I was almost tempted to put it in a translator but reading this makes me think it's not worth it. In saying this I'm sure that the document is helpful to people who understand the format, but to me it's just unnecessarily confusing for the sake of (Writing Format) as opposed to (Accessibility) for people like myself.

It would be helpful to have to specs for each style written out, so we know an H1 is supposed to be Andada 20 pt. for example. They don't always apply correctly, so having the specs would make correcting them easier.

So, anyone able to recommend a good example of something published using this template? Or even something that gives a look similar? I've got Lost Mines of Phandelver, but am looking for other examples too.

One problem I found is that the TeX Gyre Bonum font is often names something like "TeX Gyre Bonum Regular", and even after installing the above font, that isn't the font name in Word. The font exists, and has a separate font file with that name, but is grouped under "TeX Gyre Bonum". The font appears incorrectly unless I manually update the file by re-applying the font from the actual font in my font list. If anyone knows a way to get around this, please post.

I had this problem as well. It seems like the font link and the font used in the file are different, or not Word compatible somehow.

I didn't realize this was happening until I released one of my works and someone mentioned that it wasn't the correct font. I am basically having to manually highlight every paragraph that's in Tex Gyre Bonum and then change the font from "Tex Gyre Bonum" to the same thing, "Tex Gyre Bonum" and it physically changes how the font looks but it still says the same name. This is really confusing and I'm not sure why it doesn't work properly but it's a big pain. I'm not sure which font is which to be honest and I could use a little tutorial if there's an easier way to do it!

OK, I'm giving this another shot. Hey creator! Here are some tips!

1. I had to fix the TeX Gyre Bonum styles. Luckily those are only: Boxed Text, Intro Body, and Level. That should be easy for anyone with intermediate MS Word skills.

2. This document template uses a LOT of fonts. TeX Gyre Bonum, Cambria, Calibri, Andada SC, Gill Sans, and Junction. I'm not a professional layout designer, but that seems excessive. I understand using Andada as a catchy title font. I also get using TeX Gyre Bonum as a catchy intro font. But why in boxed text? We should be using Cambria, the default serif font, for parity. And why Gill Sans for some sans sarif titles and Calibri for others? Why not stick to Calibri? The two are different enough that you really notice.

3. Word is great for creating automatic hyperlinked tables of contents. But
- A. the Chapter Title style is ignored. It's just body text in a pretty shape? Anyway, I'll have to use Heading 1 for chapter titles...See more

There is an easier way to do it.

Find the file location for the fonts after you've downloaded them and saved them to your computer somewhere.

Use a font file converter and change the font file type to .ttf (True Type Font)

Save the new font file, replacing the old font file of the same name.

Now, check and see if your newly-saved file is installed: open 'Control Panel', go to 'Fonts', and check out Junction or Tex Gyre. Rich-click the font and select 'Properties' to see if it is a .ttf file.

This worked for me, at least.

Any suggestions for achieving the parchment-like background featured in WotC products and many of the DM's Guild products within Word? I've seen some of the products on this site use it and I wouldn't mind doing so myself!

Go to the DESIGN tab, on the far right there's a page colour option; you want FILL EFFECTS and then TEXTURE. There's a nice legible parchment texture called PARCHMENT

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
