Werewolf: Auld Lang Syne (and CSS)

edited October 2012 in Campaign Portal Building
Ok, I've fielded several IMs/Emails recently asking me for help with CSS Stylesheets ... even though I'm a far cry from an expert. I wanted to do a site from scratch and then post the CSS for others to copy and use as they see fit.

"http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaigns/auld-lang-syne":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaigns/auld-lang-syne

This is my Obsidian Portal page for a Werewolf the Apocalypse (yay 20th anniversary and kickstarter) campaign titled Auld Lang Syne. It's still listed as "in planning" however on the WIKI is a "link to my stylesheet.":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaign/auld-lang-syne/wikis/css-stylesheet
(Hopefully I escaped all the proper characters so you can just cut and paste into your own Edit Settings page)

So anyway, I hope it's of use to somebody.

Also... feel free to comment on the campaign itself. I hope to get started playing it soon-ish (side by side with our "Dresden Files Dallas":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaigns/dfd game which is still going strong).

    Thanks Wolfhound,

    that could come in handy some time in the future for me. I have absolutely no idea of CSS at this point in time, but one must always think of the future, and this looks like it could be a really cool aid in getting to understand the techniques!

    Ok I am confused on how you edited the character page... as it is a page I desperately want to look better and I do not want to have to create a wiki for each.

    EDIT: Wait i think i got it....

    EIDT: OH GOD OH GOD OH GOD.....now i want to redo my entire site....i think i might hate and love you right now wolfhound

    A fantastic example of what's possible now that we can create actual stylesheets for our campaigns :) Beautiful work, wolfhound!

    Ok... HumAnnoyd has totally blown me away with what he did with that template.

    Thanks Wolfhound. Could NOT have done it without your help. I have never done CSS before so it was a bit of a learning curve figuring it all out but I am pretty happy with the results.

    Thanks to ChainsawXIV, a DST for both Werewolf the Apocalypse Revised as well as now, the 20th Anniversary Edition have been approved/fixed/edited etc. (for those that messaged me with helpful comments, typos, and requests - thank you!).

    As for the campaign itself, hopefully it will get out of the planning stages this year... we'll see. "Front Page updated in any case":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaigns/auld-lang-syne (tons of characters updated with name/tags/pictures)

    Love it! Your campaign has that whole Werewolf 1st ed look to it. Played a lot of Werewolf 2nd ed back in the day when my Wife was writing for White Wolf. Still one of favorite RPGs.

    Brilliant, have started my own w20 campaign and have taken advantage of your generous posting of the CSS stylesheet to give my players something nice to look at :) thank you

    You should also have a dynamic record sheet as well if you select "Werewolf the Apocalypse" in your campaign settings for Game System, my "Werewolf 20th Anniversary" sheet should be in your character dropdowns

    (if you spot errors or whatever let me know and I'll try to get them in)

    Seen that :) thank you

    one quick question, I can get the riple Box and Roll-over Graphics to look right on my page, but I cant seem to get them to link properly, instead just returns to the top of the page; presumably there is some step I've missed?

    See my Dresden Files: Dallas thread, I just posted a revision to those buttons, I recommend using that code instead of my triple box. You'll be happier with it. I'll try to get it incorporated into my tutorial ASAP

    As for returning to page top, check what address you have inside your A HREF="" code. Maybe it's still the # ?

    So... it IS actually possible to go from "In Planning" to "Currently Playing" after 2+ years....

    I first put up our Werewolf Site in 2011 and now, finally, we've got some content up on there.

    Thanks to Joedylan's group for finally getting us up off our duff. Though I have no guarantee yet that this'll turn into a regular game, but at least getting one character's Prelude/Rite of Passage up is better than nothing. :)

    Nice Prelude! More! ;-)

    I was hoping you guys would eventually get this campaign going. Love me some Werewolf. (miss the Radioactive link, it's like that song was made for WtA!) ;-)

    It's going to be a long prelude (12-ish entries, I estimate) as we're figuring out who all will be in the game besides Wolfhound and I. There are more coming. Slowly but surely! :)

    By popular request, the intro song is back, this time accompanied by a video intro...

    Since I didn't want it messing with my vertical real estate, it's in a mouseover div, so if you want to see it, mouseover it. Thus mobile devices may have an issue.

    good work, you keep raising the bar, I am enjoying the preludes and now need to set one of my -Minions- players to the task of developing an intro video for my campaign :)
