I've switched over to using google docs for brew, share some of your gdocs brew or post the best content you've seen hosted on the service :smallsmile:

Interesting, pretty stock format but I like the 3 rows per page part :smallsmile:

Heh, I've been staring at google docs for the better part of a year, working on my game. There's a thread in this forum about it, but I'll link here too. So, this'll actually be a the google doc directly converted to a PDF.

So, here's Straight to VHS, a game that is built on the joy brought to us by shlocky b-movies: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9Qiq_vhT3DoX3psTXVBUkdvdEE/view

Oh, and here's the link to the afore-mentioned thread: http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?387880-Looking-for-feedback-on-Straight-to-VHS-(Free-ready-to-play)

EDIT: So far, I've been pretty satisfied with using google docs, pretty flexible and great for sharing, occasionally I run into frustration (my table of contents has a really nasty habit of flipping back and forth between looking normal and being a mess) but that's probably a case of user error. One small annoyance though, which might not be the fault of google docs per se: when exporting as a PDF, it's almost "what you see if what you get" but weird little issues will pop up with alignment, particularly around tables and sometimes underlines will cause odd looking text. Nothing I haven't been able to work around though.

It's styled a bit like shadowrun, this is pretty well designed actually thanks, ill take a look.

Thanks! Although it's my hope that it is a bit easier to read and comprehend than Shadowrun tends to be. Not that Shadowrun is *too* unwieldy, but I'm aiming for something a bit lighter and quicker to pick up.

I actually provided a link to somebody on reddit earlier today (err, yesterday now), and five hours later they posted back, saying they showed it to a friend and they finished a successful two hour session, so I think I'm on the right track. :D I know I have a LOT more work ahead of me though!
