Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb - Manual Inserts

I actually did try the same XD. Yours is pretty fine, I like how you did the little stamps markings. I wouldn't add the "INDIANA JONES" text, it doesn't have sense for it to be there.

(Also, another little detail, you missed the "Cr." from "Rockville Cr." on the left side of the ticket. It probably happened when removing the VOID stamp. Don't worry, I almost missed it too as well while doing mine XD)

Taking a closer inspection to the one that appears on the leaflet, the city names that appear on the sides are slightly different to the ones from the ticket I found. Maybe a variation of the same model, or from a different year?
Oxley, I totally agree with you about the "I wouldn't add the INDIANA JONES text, it doesn't have sense for it to be there. ". So for further work on it what should we prefer? "Scan" or "period/logical" reproductions ?

I mean, the manual is, first and foremost, a videogame manual. It is using and imitating the style of period documents, but it's main purpose is to sell and explain how the game works.

I would say that, from a propmaking and replicating point of view, it is more fun to recreate those documents as if the manual was the actual diary Indy used in 1935; trying to remove the parts of the manual that "break the fourth wall", if I explain myself.

I took a stab at the health board notice from the xbox and PS2 versions of the manual. Only the header and footer are in-universe so i've put in some traveller information about tropical diseases to replace the body of the text. I wasn't able to find the specific caduceus used so had a bit of a try at recreating it, If someone finds the original source let me know.

That's a great take on the health notice! I'm a big fan of your version of the caduceus, and tying it to the Ceylon chapter is a nice touch.

I decided to revisit the training manual, changing the fonts to slightly more accurate ones, as well as making the next two pages.

The added text comes from a marine fighting manual, and the figures are from different WWII fighting manuals.

I included a blank version of page 1, so you can give it your try, or make new pages. Have on mind that both pages have different number codes in the upper right, and that the text on the bottom is related to the chapter the text is talking about.

Having drawings from WWII manuals is a bit anachronistic, and the second page has a "Declassified" stamp, which means that the manual is a bit old during 1935. Because of that I made an alternate version, with drawings from a WWI manual instead.

Please, by all means! Would be nice to figure out a proper diary mixing what little can be seen on the manual and the narrative of the game.

Speaking of the game, I forgot to post these texture files. They are supposed to be blackboard decorations for the classroom cinematic, but they are diagrams and maps related to the Ceylon level, and could be nice doodles for diary filler.
