I have a copy of Adobe, and would like to know where the authors of the fan sourcebooks get the backrgounds that are just like the official pdf releases.

I suppose you could also go through a regular WotC PDF and just strip it of all its text. *shrugs*

Anything that I do layout and design for I tend to make up my own art and layout to "make it mine." The ideas are novel enough, why can't the layout? Besides, I tend to think that anyone who intentionally tries to clone a WotC product can come into more difficulties then its worth...

Does anybody know of a free font similar to the one WotC uses for headlines in their PDFs?
It's called Armada-bold and costs $40 to buy the real thing, so if there where a cheaper (free) font out there that even vaguely resembles it i'd like to know please :)

I'm just not creative enough to come up with my own design. I've previously been using a scan of the pages in the Star Wars Galaxy game manual for backgrounds on my player hand-outs. The manual had a couple of blank pages in the back... excellent for scanning :)

Might I suggest http://www.1001freefonts.com for your free font needs. The site looks like booty and there's no real search function to be heard of; you're just going to have to browse it. Also, for the Star Wars fonts, you're further ahead to Google for Star Wars fonts (http://www.google.com/search?q=star+wars+fonts&sourceid=mozilla-search&start=0&start=0&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official) - there's a few sites that have them. Not sure if any of them will match what you're looking for, though.
