What fonts are used in the P2E books?


Advice

I'm working on improving my character sheets so that their output looks much more like the monster stat blocks in the Bestiary.

Does anyone know what fonts are being used in those stat blocks and elsewhere in P2E publications? I'd very much like to match the style as closely as possible.


If you have the PDF, you can go to file>properties to view a list of fonts used within a document. Process of elimination from there shouldn't be too hard.


I was going to suggest copypasting pages from a PDF into a word doc and then highlighting different portions of text to see what font the program says they are in.

Drake's way is better.

Thanks! I had already uncovered a half dozen of them via WhatTheFont!, but your method will save me a lot of time! Thanks!


Would you mind posting what the fonts you discover are, for those of us who kill trees for our books?
