Concept: “You have been blessed with the touch of GOD. GOD, in this case, is a fungal growth deep below the City. It hungers for new converts, to spread and grow. You accepted its gift, and now bear the scars of your awakening.”
Content: A class for the zealous collector of spores, molds, and fungus.
Writing: A rhizome-licious mix of terse mechanics, humorous descriptions of class features, and horrifying labels.
Art/Design: A two-page spread with an abstract illustration and general class introduction on the left, and class features/tables on the right.
Usability: Color-coded text to distinguish headings and stats from body text, and distinct font choices for each section of body text, assists with identifying and locating desired info.
Concept: “Dancing the night away, you consider yourself a creature of the shadows, child of ancient necromantic bloodsuckers. Whether these claims are true or not is yet unknown.”
Content: A class for the punk who loves the night life. Also includes a hangout/club, the Dreamhouse, for CY’s Gost scene.
Writing: Succinct descriptions and explanations of class features that illuminate character and location potential.
Art/Design: Two spreads of white and pink on black, with an illustration of pale faced dancers on the right side of page 1 and a city skyline image in the center of page 2. Text columns frame each image.
Usability: Visually, information is easily recognizable, with distinct sections of content relatable to others. Color and text decoration choices emphasize headings and key information labels. Text on page 2 is selectable/searchable, but text on page 1 is not.
Concept: “DO YOU WISH TO SEE THE UNKNOWN? A dash of conspiratorial thinking for your next CY_BORG game. Contains a table of weird things to find on the NET, two UFO themed enemies, equipment, and a bunch of references to sci-fi and horror.”
Content: A zine featuring governmental and alien menaces, a table of interesting net discoveries, and several items.
Writing: A balanced mix of unsettling horror and tongue-in-cheek humor presented as a mostly in-universe document.
Art/Design: Dark gray on light yellow/tan scheme (reflecting printed homemade zine aesthetic) with one- and two-column layouts of text, accompanied by cartoon and silhouette illustrations of enemies, items, and more.
Usability: High fore/ground contrast and font choices make for easy reading, with larger headings and handwritten marginal notes consistently applied throughout.
