Inspired by a link to LaTeX templates Brad Murray had posted recently on Google+, I decided to try and spend a few hours moving a German FATE variant of mine (inspired by the simplicity of the Diaspora core but with skills appropriate for a Mesopotamia or Ancient Greece setting) to LaTeX. I really wanted to use the Tufte template.

I really hate editing the text such that section beginnings and endings fall on page breaks! But I think it worked. I’m not quite sure whether it it actually significantly better. After having spent a few hours refreshing my LaTeX skills, I guess I’m just happy it’s done! What do you think of the layout?

Summary: I like the rules in the main text and the example in the sidebar. I also like the look of the Tufte books, so that was an additional incentive to use this template.

Why did you make the whole document two-column?
