Creating this sound font was bitter sweet. Honestly, when I first saw ANH as a kid, I thought Princess Leia was bad as she was mean to Han! Its fun to look back and see how our perceptions change as we get older. Going back and watching the movies as an adult, I really enjoy Leia's character (and understand why she was mean to Han! ).
Font Information: This font is designed as a sound set depicting an event where Darth Vader and Princess Leia are fighting together as Father and Daughter. I almost named the font "Daddy's Princess," but I decided against it. This is not a font imagined as Leia as a fully trained Jedi using her lightsaber, but rather as her and Vader fighting side by side. The lightsaber sounds are inspired by Darth Vader. The blaster sounds are from Leia in ANH and ROTJ. The force sounds are inspired by Vader.
Inspiration: The font was inspired by my own remembrance of Carrie Fisher in ANH. One might call this a font about "my Princess Leia" and my fondest memories of her character. Leia's theme music is included in the font as my memories are deeply influenced by the Star Wars soundtrack (It is the first one I owned).
This font is for both NEC and Plecter soundboards. I have not submitted it to SaberFont.com yet, but I plan to.
profezzorn: hey ARKM, did you ever write a that tutorial on the toner transfer method?

ARKM: Sadly no. Well, that's not entirely true. I did finish writing it but did not perform the steps and take pics of said steps.

ARKM: So it's like "Step 5: Using the high temperature temp, tape the paper with the design on it onto the metal part to be etched."

ARKM: ... but there's no Pic 4.

profezzorn: from other things I've read it's just PNP blue with some heat and pressure applied, right?

ARKM: Some use that. I could not get successful results with it but others have.

profezzorn: so what do you use?

ARKM: I personally use glossy magazine pages. I just rip a page out of a magazine and put it in the printer. The pages have to be the right thickness for the printer though. Too thin and they rip in the printer.
