    Hi everyone, with 8 games now planned for the series, and me being hip deep in rules, counters and map development for all of them, I am actively looking for help with the grunt work (not pulling any punches here) translating scans of previous edition scenarios into word docs (grunt work), but one at a time. (In most cases the published version of the scenarios is not in a text format, so yes, scans to Word conversion, or typing). No commitment necessary, now or later; try one and see how you like the process. Just looking for added hands to make the work lighter.

    Carrot (aside from an obvious game credit and my eternal gratitude)? Later on I will of course need playtesters, and assistance with designing new scenarios (I know I have touched base with a couple of you about this already, its getting closer).

    It will be work, albeit in small, digestible, scenario-sized chunks. But if you are interested, contact me privately, and I can give you more detailed requirements.

    Thanks!

    Yep, understand. Phones are great but can be a pain in the ass to write anything of length with. :)

    Ah! a keyboard at a last! :)

    Maurice we are transcribing existing scenarios from their original PDF, scan, or wold Word format into a consistent Word format, as a basis for further development of them.
    There are 144 (give or take) scenarios planned for the eight games, so there is plenty to do. :)

    Would that be something you might want to try? Like I think I have said all along, if you are interested, try converting one, and if it feels OK to you I can give you another; and so on. You can work at your own pace as there are two fellows already working on it.

    Let me know at keitht-AT-lnlpublishing.com

    Thanks for touching base!

    Keith,

    I could probably help, but not until May. Starting the end of the month, I'll be working 6x12s; between now and then I'll be getting my personal life (i.e., TAXES) squared away before I fall off the planet.

    I could try my hand at scanning them into a word doc. I do have FineReader OCR software that works really well on images too.
