DCC font

Does anyone know where I can find a DCC font please? I want to be able to make posters for campaigns to attract players.

Thanks in advance!

Do you mean the same font used for the logo?

Or just something bone-crushingly, Appendix-N-ificated awesome?

I like to use dafont.com... 8)

The font is Duvall small caps (for the logo), Cooper Black Std is also used in some parts of the book I think and is very stylish besides.

Thanks! I was unable to find a free copy of Cooper Black STD to download but had no trouble getting the Duvall Small Caps one.

Fonts ain't cheap, bro. But good ones are worth it. Check out Typography for Lawyers as a good starting point for what fonts to use and why.

If you're on a budget like me, I was able to find some facsimiles on Google Fonts (free):

For the small headers/bolding for map keys:

Corben

For the large headers (this one is way off but has a similar feel)

Aladin

I wasn't able to find a serif body font that works very well, either the bold is off or the numbers are weird, but I'm sure you can find a body font you like.
