Dictionnaire Infernal Translation update

Posted in Uncategorized with tags on November 11, 2013 by sonsofsolomon

The Covers, Title page and Preface are edited and print ready and the entries for the book have been separated into individual lettered files to expedite the saving process and general navigation while editing.

One of the more recent hurdles is re-alphebetizing the entry headers that changed due to translation, which happens occasionally. This easily works out because all that has to be done is the entry moved to the appropriate letter file.
