Post Fonts....
Can't believe this hasn't been brought up yet... but is there any way we could add a few fonts to spice things up on the board a bit? I'm thinking in particular to the PbP boards. Something like Papyrus, or Vivaldi.... <.< on the other hand "Theme of Murder" I found in a topic discussing fonts is probably going to be used in my real life campaign now. :)

So is there anything against that curiously? Or should I just stick with the basic Italisized Large characters....?

I can honestly say I don't think it's ever come up. A quick google seems to indicate it's possible.... I'll give it a go when I have a chance, but it's way low on the priority list.

If anyone is actively injured by the color, I'll see what I can do in a few weeks, when I have time... But I for one, like it.

Tarlyn knows what's up.

When viewed through sunglasses, pink looks like a much darker shade of red.

Blood red, in fact...

Good call, Tarlyn! :D

Actually when injuries to the head are leaking from trauma... then it can look very pinkish....

OK, I looked further into it and it seems like there are issues. Basically, everyone reading it needs to have the font installed on their computer or it doesn't work. I don't see a good way to actually install the font on the forum itself.

So it doesn't seem worth it to me. Sorry, Zilf, you'll have to make do with other methods.

Alright well thanks for looking into it. i know there's a list of commonly used fonts for computers but that's ok.
