Styleguide for Book of Archetypes project
Your submission should be done in rich text format (.rtf) or plain text format (.txt). If you can only save it as a .doc, that is fine. However, I may need to send it back to you for rewrites if your formatting doesn't keep.
You may format your material with bold face and italics. You do not need to use <b> or <i> to represent those features.
Use line returns, not indents for new paragraphs.
Please use Calibri 10 point font.
Use the same abbreviations as the Archetypes in the Core Book for Attributes in standard Unisystem material:
Essence (no abbreviation, duh!)
Do not put ":" between stats and numbers.
Do not put ":" after stat titles.
Capitalize the first letter of every word in the Attributes, Qualities/Drawbacks, Skills, Metaphysics, and Gear sections.
Anne Rice Novel, Camera, Cellular Phone, Handcuffs
Anne Rice novel, camera, cellular phone, handcuffs
Put point costs in parenthesis after Qualities / Drawbacks.
Artistic Talent (3)
Put all new equipment and rules in its own file when submitting the material. List the new equipment and material in addition to the archetypes, when you send in the waiver.
Personality to be NO MORE than 400 words. If you go slightly over this and cannot find a way to get the word count down, submit it anyways. We will edit the material down so that it fits while doing our best to maintain the tone and style of your writing.
Quote to be NO MORE than 50 words.
Edit your work. Check your spelling, grammar, sentence structure, etc. Style is one thing, bad grammar another.
Send a signed copy of the Waiver (don't forget to list your submissions) to George via snail mail. Without this waiver, we will not publish your work.

Email your actual submission to Derek Stoelting via email@example.com . Please put "Archetype Submission" or something similar in the Subject Line of your email.
Cinematic Unisystem does not currently use abbreviations for Archetypes. Thus:
For Cinematic Unisystem Cast Member sheets, list all Skills, even if they have a "0" as a ranking next to them.
Don't forget Combat Maneuvers for your cinematic Unisystem Cast Members.
"Roleplaying the XXX character" is not necessary for cinematic Unisystem Cast Members. However, if you include such material, the word count total for it must be included with the Personality word count total.
