A downloadable template pack

Standardcat is a 24-page Affinity Publisher template suitable for self-publishing roleplaying games. The template includes:

  • a pdf version of the template for universal access
  • 2 page sizes (A5 and 5.5 x 8.5in)
  • complete set of heading, body, table, header and footer text styles
  • alternating row colour table format
  • several styles to help format stat blocks
  • designed with two freely available fonts: Alegreya and Cooper Hewitt (please download separately and respect the fonts' licenses. A useful site is www.fontsquirrel.com)
  • title and end pages
  • colophon (copyright page)
  • table of contents
  • overview of content area
  • example d6 and d30 lists
  • single-column and two-column example layouts
  • various image size examples
  • a license for you to use the template to create your own works

NOTE: This template only works with the Affinity Publisher software. This template is distributed as is. It works with Affinity Publisher as of summer 2022. I do not guarantee regular updates of these template files.

Bonus Example Location

The template also includes a UVG-style location (compatible with that product), including:

  • misfortune table
  • local conditions, denizens, and desirables
  • a typical local lifeform (kabaliths, the living spirit stones) and spell (living stone)
  • three sub-locations (the Pink City, Tombs of Vorhad's Acolytes, and the Undying Megalith of Tabo).

This location is formatted for the SEACAT rpg system, a d20 system loosely compatible with most of the wider post-D&D ecosystem. Levels = HD, life = hp.


I hope you find the template useful for your own design projects. It distills many lessons I have (sometimes painfully) learned over the years of creating roleplaying games.

I also hope you find the sample content useful as inspiration for laying out and creating your own exciting new rpg games.

Welcome aboard, you're all designers now :)
