Opening Crawl

Making an opening crawl

To make a Star Wars opening crawl requires some custom CSS as well as custom HTML.

Custom HTML

Use the HTML tag <blockquote class=‘crawl’> to define the whole crawl.

Within that, use <p class=‘long_time_ago’> for “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…”.

Then use an h2. for your overall title, such as “Episode IV” or the name of your game.

And use h3. for the main episode title, such as “A NEW HOPE”.

Following that, use three paragraphs of text for the body of the crawl.

Example:

&lt;blockquote class="crawl"&gt;
&lt;p class="long_time_ago"&gt;A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...&lt;/p&gt;

h2. Edge of the Empire

h3. Explorers on the Edge

Civil war rages across the Galaxy. The Rebel Alliance has won a victory over the Empire with the destruction of the Death Star, but Imperial oppression continues to grow.

On the fringes of civilized society, shadowy forces search the Galaxy for mysterious artifacts and ancient relics, including the rumored EYE OF RODIA, a crystalline gem with untold powers.

One group of adventurers, sponsored by the elusive Voren Institute, delves into ancient temples and explores the underworld to find the Eye of Rodia and stay one step ahead of their own dark pasts...
&lt;/blockquote&gt;

Custom CSS

Add custom CSS to your Settings page.

1. Click on “Settings”
2. Click on “Advanced”
3. Add the CSS below to the “Custom CSS” section.

Here is the custom CSS:

blockquote.crawl {
  background-color: black;
  background-image: url(http://www.ultradrive.com/images/rdx_starfield.jpg);
  padding: 1.25em;
}
blockquote.crawl p {
  color: yellow;
  font-size: 1.25em;
  text-align: justify;
}
blockquote.crawl h2,
blockquote.crawl h3 {
  color: yellow !important;
  text-align: center;
}
blockquote.crawl h3 {
  font-size: 1.75em;
  text-transform: uppercase;
}

blockquote.crawl p.long_time_ago {
  color: rgb(75, 213, 238);
  font-size: 1.75em;
}

The result…

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…
