Topic Subject: The Rise of Legends Font - Revealed
posted 07-01-06 08:12 AM EDT (US)   

I asked Greypawn what the Rise of Legends font was by email a while back. He replied the Rise of Nations font was Wolf's Bane. I can't remember what he said about the Rise of Legends font, and I can't find the email, but anyway.

A Few Days ago I was messing around with Wolf's Bane, and finally discovered something that had been staring me in the eye for weeks. It was the font used for Rise of Legends as well.

You can get Wolf's Bane here. That's a link to a page in which I entered rise of legends into a box to generate a custom online preview. Just look at the preview - ring a bell anyone?

Now I call on all Photoshop people - find the styling used, and tell us!

The Rise of Legends wording is made up of a number of layers.

I should really use pictures in this explanation. Ask if you want them.

The first layer is "Rise of Legends" written in solid black.
On this is a black outer glow.
Then there's an inner bevel (141% depth).
Then a colour overlay 100% of colour 763515.

The second layer on top is just Rise of Legends written in white with a slight inner bevel of 101%. The wording here is smaller than before, so it has the 763515 coloured outline.

The next layer is writing again, but this time attached to a marblely texture. There's another inner bevel here (chisel soft, 71% depth). There's also a size 3 black stroke.

From this point, you basically have the logo, except the colour of the bulk of the letters needs to be a light blue rather than a dark grey. They stuck on top another layer for that.

Okay. . . Erm. Thanks.

Any chance of getting that translated into photoshop noobish language with pictures please?

Sorry, I was very vague.

I'm trying to replicate it now, and it's hard.

Anyway, rather than make a ton of pictures, and as I've now remembered, I'll point you to the ROL Fansite Kit (available... somewhere) where it has the photoshop file of the logo where you can look at each layer and such. I just went through that and wrote down what I saw in my other post.

Yeah. I assigned the different layer stylings to the sotred thing whtever it's called and I'm working on it now.

I managed to decifer it in the end by looking at the thing in detail and at the fan site kit logo.

I already had it, by the way.

EDIT: I think I've done it!

bleh, not that hard to remake all the letters of the alphabet with the given letters in 'Rise of Legends' i think

that's what i'd prolly do as well, unless i wanted to get it into word or notepad

Bleh, I gave up on replicating the logo. Too much work.

Something like this is good enough for me anyway.

Well. i haven't done it.
It got all messed up when I was fixing some bugs. I can't be bothereed to redo it

Edit: Mudokongod, I think I can do it from those iamges you just posted.

I really like the font. IMO, it fits in with the style of the game. Don't ask me why, but it does.

oh you can wait for what I can give
you know what I am so you know how I live
try to look proud but youíre not in the slightest
its happening now and itís always been like this.

I agree.

It really fits in well.
