Over the years RPG manuals have developed a set of layout conventions – most of them have a banner (art running across the top of a page) or a border (art usually running down the outside side of each page) for the pages of the book. I can’t tell you when or why these conventions developed but one or the other (sometimes both) have been in most of the material I’ve looked at. The folks at 3Hombres have asked me to illustrate banners for the projects I’ve worked on. The sketch above is for the banner for Detour. This scenario involves a road trip and … let’s call them zombies … so hopefully this banner properly represents that flavor.
