Candlekeep Archives Site

This is the website project I created as part of my Cybercultures Unit I did in my BIT Games Development Course at Macquarie University.
It was my intention to create a site with the aesthetic of a scroll of parchment sitting on a wooden tabletop, in-keeping with the theme of the site as an online representation of a medieval-style records keeping institution. I would then populate the site with 'biographies' of the Dungeons and Dragons characters that I had sheets handy for.

Keeping the scroll looking appropriate while varying the length to which it 'unrolled' was a hurdle I am particularly proud of surmounting, though I am still yet to appropriately handle window width's smaller than the scroll ends. I am also quite happy with the tabbed infobox utilising nothing but CSS to appear smoothly animated and tidy, as well as the use of colours and fonts.

P.S. For those of you who are looking at the Character stats in-depth, they were actually taken from characters I have played, but I got lazy at one point and duplicated some stat tables across-character.
