Hi Laurens,

> Here's my proof of concept:

You might want to turn off the adjusting of space between words which is
giving a straight edge to the end of lines: ‘.na’.  This would remove
the varying space before ‘Goblins’ and ‘Orcs’, which looks odd to me.

A non-breaking space is ‘\~’ and would stop ‘HD 1-1’ being split across

Look out for the number of spaces you use; whitespace is significant in
troff input, e.g. the gap between ‘concept. The’ looks too small as if
troff doesn't know it's the end of the sentence.  Indicate this by
either ending the input line after ‘concept.’ or typing two spaces.

You could play with setting a trap, sounds right up your street!, WHen
output reaches a vertical position with ‘.wh’ to remove the large
image-skipping indent once we've passed its bottom.  This would allow
the ‘General description’ paragraphs to flow back to the left.

Cheers, Ralph.
