Re: The Dark Temple CONTEST ENTRY THREAD

Ok, here is the middle level (XCF file in project dir). I have not made any attempts to handle elevation, i.e. just reproduced the original map. middle_level.png Please let me know if you spot errors etc. Since a scanner is involved in the process, I have split details (room numbering, stairs, traps...

Re: The Dark Temple CONTEST ENTRY THREAD

Yes, l'll happily do the flat version so there is complete set.

If I or someone else figure a way to add a way to show elevation nicely, that is a bonus.

Re: The Dark Temple CONTEST ENTRY THREAD

I want to contribute something to this event though I was not up to writing an adventure. And since there seem to be plenty of much better illustrations coming in at the moment (quite a lot of impressive art) I made an attempt at doing the maps by hand (and Gimp editing). Note that I have skipped th...

Re: Equipment Emporium Supplement

Okay, you caused me brain damage there, Borgar. I started out to fix EE and it was already fixed... confusing. Then I thought, maybe he got the books mixed up, so I checked the other two and it's only "Olson" in AA2. So it's that book, and not EE, that needs redone, right? :oops: Yes (and I see you...

Re: Equipment Emporium Supplement

I'm very happy to be a contributor the new releases.

Though I seem to have gone swedish in the EE now. I should be credited as "Borgar Olsen" (not Olson). It's correct in AA2 and CS1 btw.

Re: Spellbook Generator Prototype

Couldn't resists playing around with this so here is an example of a simple template based conversion. I stripped the spell info for a single spell (Magic Missile) into a YAML file and created a "text" and "latex" converter templates. The included script (spell_to_text.pl) uses the text template (sp...

Re: Spellbook Generator Prototype

I was actually answering (late) to Pholus original entry.
I am very sorry to use such odd programming choices, but you go with what you know
Python has an actually syntax, not sure what I'd call what perl has.

Re: Spellbook Generator Prototype

I forgot to add that I can get the this to work using Cygwin (cygwin.org) which more or less install a unix system on Windows. I just made sure the installation included the _texlive_ packages. texlive-collection-latex texlive-collection-latexextra texlive-collection-latexrecommended BTW, I would no...

Re: Spellbook Generator Prototype

Not sure why perl should be considered such an odd programming language. It has it's quirks (like a quite horrible syntax) but the text processing capability is really exceptional. And though it's not as popular as it was was a decade or two ago it's hardly obscure. The ODF::lpOD modules look like i...

Re: Magical Item Compendium

I was thinking of using the smaller items as something of a "get out of jail card" item for players to summon the smallest elementals (like spell I guess) on short notice (in combat). In any case I started out thinking about an "icicle" item for cold and it somehow ended up as multiple gems on a nec...
