Paper Miniatures, as a Font!

The Sparks line is finally available here, and to get you started, here's a freeware sampler! With this set, you'll learn why Sparks have earned their "classic" status since they first arrived in 1999. In the years since, a lot of other electronic paper-minis have come along (I confess to loving all of them) but Sparks still pack a few advantages in their font-based approach. The biggest are probably:

  • Choose Your Own Scale: Whether you game in 15mm, 25mm, 28mm, 50mm or something else entirely, Sparks scale to whatever you need.
  • Play With Them All Over Your Computer: Because Sparks are a font, they're accessible in the font menu of all your favorite word-processing, page-layout and graphics software.
  • Print Your Own Mix: Since you just type whatever minis you choose, you're never faced with a sheet of paper minis with just one or two you actually want for tonight's game. Need a bunch of skeletons ... and a robot? Type what you want.
  • Front and Back Art: This one isn't intrinsic to fonts, but it's worth mentioning. Sparks have front and back artwork (uppercase and lowercase "letters" in the font; every letter's an illustration). That's twice as much work for the artists, twice as much awesome for you.

Of course, I don't want you to abandon the paper minis you love ... I just want them to have some new friends! The Free-For-All is a compilation of Sparks from the Dan Smith Stockpile, Dungeoneers, Watch the Skies!, Macho Women with Guns, The Adventures of Darcy Dare, and Critters fonts — a complete set of 26 sparks in all, from a wide range of genres and art styles! They'll give you a taste of how the sets work, and they make FANTASTIC DESK CLUTTER. If you enjoy these set, check the links below for more. Welcome to Sparks!

Well, I installed it and nothing happened. I'm probably doing it wrong but still, it should be pretty self-driven. I'm using Windows 10. Why is there a problem?

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
