Hey Guys,
New to Obsidian Portal, I've gotten something of a warm welcome from some people already but I thought I'd just pop in an introduce myself. My name is Liam, I am 28 years old and from Australia. The game I am running is a massive transdimensional Rifts game borrowing heavily from the Lovecraft Mythos where the players are unwitting pawns in a grand cosmic chess game played by powers beyond their ken. Their actions help to govern and shape the Megaverse in a time when all reality is in upheaval. I have a vast expansive library of NPCs, stories, and old adventures that can be read on the wiki. I hope you enjoy the page, if you do don't forget to become a fan!

*Oh! A quick question!*
I would like to break some of the pages into double columns but I keep having a problem where I need to pick the exact point of the column break and even then, the text always centers itself. If I want a page to simply appear as a double columned page, with text aligned to the top of the page and scrolling down is there a specific way I can do that? If not that is fine, its just an ascetic thing. :)

    It's really easy to give your page a two-column layout if you're using a modern browser. If you're ascendant, just add this to your CSS:

    @.two-columns {
    column-count:2;
    -moz-column-count:2; /* Firefox */
    -webkit-column-count:2; /* Safari and Chrome */
    }@

    Then for every page that you want to have a two-column layout, stick the following at the top of the page:

    @@

    If you aren't an Ascendant member, you won't be able to edit the CSS directly. In that case, use this:

    @@

    Finally, add a @@ at the bottom of the page.

    EDIT: Note that that property is only supported in IE 10+ and modern versions of Opera, Firefox, Safari, and Chrome; don't expect it to work on something like Netscape Navigator:D

    Wow Langy! That needs to get into the CSS section for sure- not useful for my current campaign, but that is slick!

    Next Question.

    I know that by putting:

    p{font-family: Times;}.

    In front of a paragraph I can make it appear as Times New Roman, but is there someway I can put that in CC in a similar fashion to the columns so that I can throw in a short link and have it effect the entire page/section?

    Sure. If you want it to affect every page that has that two-column layout, for example, just toss

    @font-family: Times;@

    Into the CSS for that .two-columns class, like this:

    bc. .two-columns {
    column-count:2;
    -moz-column-count:2; /* Firefox */
    -webkit-column-count:2; /* Safari and Chrome */
    font-family:Times;
    }

    Alternatively, use:

    @@

    Do that at the beginning of the section you want to use Times New Roman, and add a at the end.
