The monster comes back

LaTeX_logodnd

In the previous post, We left a \LaTeX table representing a Vargouille monster like this:

Monster definition basic

Monster definition basic and attackless


And we want it more threatening. In this post I will add the different attacks, base stats, languages and maybe equipment. All are optional, it is decoration to our dangerous monster

Bring this monster to life

The monster environment

LaTeX_logodnd

As I commented, I am working on a Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) \LaTeX class to write small adventures.

Objective

The monster environment should deal with creating the corresponding table and all that it is necessary. A monster has a set of attributes (common to all monsters), and a set of powers different to each monster. In D&D 4e this is typically presented in a table, which I think is the best possible presentation.

Typical d&d 4e monster stats table.

Recently I’ve been playing D&D with some friends. Tired of writing my small homebrew adventures in OpenOffice I turned into my old friend \LaTeX.

Seemed to me that a D&D adventure was specific enough to have its own document class, like article, book etc. And could not find it online, so right now I am writing one.html select jquery set selected

In this article I will explai how to write \LaTeX commands accepting more than the 9 default parameters.

more please
