Day 23: Which RPG has the most jaw-dropping layout?
Now we enter what for me is a less interesting section of the question list. Jaw-dropping layout? Does it matter that much? I mean, once you've read through it the first time it's more about usability than making statements.
The Underground RPG in the 90's had a strong layout and organization - the publisher really put some effort into these books. Strong enough that I still have a positive impression 20+ years later. if you get a chance to flip through the core book you'll see what I mean.
The original LUG Star Trek the Next Generation core book made a strong impression in 1998 as well. it was the first full-color hardback rulebook I remember seeing. It felt like a no-holding-back no-expense-spared effort and made for a beautiful book.
More recently I really like the layout of ICONS: Assembled Edition. It's a nice clean design - much like the game itself.
