    the_dearth got a reaction from bladerunner_35 in [Update] The Unofficial Species Menagerie - Layouted and New Pictures!   
    Hi!
     
    Thanks for all your positive feedback.
     
    As I started the project and looked for suitable content, I was happy to find the Menagerie as it is Creative Commons and, as the name already implies, actually invites you to work with it. I fulfilled all the requirements which the license is asking for by giving credits on the second page of the document, putting it under the same license and do not intend to sell it. The reason the GSA is not mentioned is quite simple: It is just not mentioned in the document and I found it through a direct link where the GSA was not really present.
     
    Through the quick response of Donovan it became clear for me that, though they put it under a CC-License, they still care very much about their project and are still involved and working on it. By not thinking it completely through and not giving them a notice, they end up not having a good feeling about this project (as seen by Donovan's post). We are not in the harsh business world. Fans of this wonderful rpg are putting their time and effort in these projects and the last thing I want is to have strong feelings about it. This is the reason why I put it offline and looking for a consent, so that everybody is happy. And, what may be even more important, by cooperating the final result will be even better.
     
    I contacted Donovan and we currently talk about how we can accomplish this goal, all I cand do right now is ask for a little patience.
     
    While we sort things out together though, I do not really have something to do in the creative way and I am open for new projects. So if there is an author of some fan created content and likes to have it in this layout (and have it posted for the community) send me a PM and I will see if we can make it happen.
     
    Thanks for all your support!

    Hi!
     
    I love the layout of the EotE and decided to take the wonderful, but boring looking "Unofficial Species Menagerie" and layout it and change some of the included pictures. The project is finished and I want to share it with you!
     
    Feedback appreciated!
     
    Edit: Thank you for your feedback so far. I was happy to came to results with this project that I missed to think it complete through, as Donovan pointed out. I did not want to upset anyone or express disrespect for the great work here, and therefore I will take it offline till I could get in touch with the creators and see if we can find a way together.

    It's really slick work. One thing I'd point out, though, is that when you did your copy-pasta on the various statblocks, you weren't careful to clear each out before making the next one. You have several species that have stats that shouldn't be there.
     
    Each of these has Intellect at 3 (when it should be lower):
    Barabel, Chadra-Fan, Dashade, Devaronian
     
    And each of these has Cunning at 3 when it should be lower:
    Neimoidian, Sluissi, Togorian

    It was all done with Adobe InDesign.
     
    I contacted Dono and wait for his reply.
