All Dark Sun Fonts and colours

Hi All:

I was just wondering, does anyone have already set up a list of the Dark Sun fonts and colours used in their game modules and supplements?

I’m sure this has been asked before, but I’m struggling to locate the information elsewhere, so I thought I’d ask here. I know Papyrus is the internal title font, and either Palatino Linotype is the main font. But what about the rest?

I had read on a different forum that the original boxed set used packard antique for the internal font. I use it for all my Dark Sun games and to my eye it’s identical to the one in my books.


Yup, it’s Packard Antique for the original material. For the font colour, I go with CMYK 0,78,94,23. Not sure how accurate that is, but it’s pretty close to my eyes.


Beside Papyrus (Papyrus, Papyrus ICG and Papyrus LET) and Packard Antique, other fonts used are : Bard, Calligraph421BT, and FZ Hand 16.

No idea about the colours.


Could always try a color scan and sample, if a non faded original source could be found.
