Post quattro-pro monster spreadsheet
Hi, everyone!

To help me in developing wilderness scenarios, I made a quattro-pro spreadsheet of all the monsters in M&T. It lists them by name, hit dice, alignment, and then has columns for various terrains: arctic, city, desert, forest, hill/scrub, jungle, mountain, plains, ruins, swamps, underground, and water. For each terrain, I put "c" if that's where the critter is commonly found, "r" if it is rare, "u" if it is unnatural, i.e. creatures that only come to the mortal plane when summoned, or "x" if the creature doesn't live there.

That way, I can sort by the column for the terrain where the adventure will take place, with a secondary sort by hit dice. That way, I get all the creatures ordinarily found in, say, a tropical jungle, and all the creatures with hit dice roughly appropriate for the player level, at a glance. If anyone wants a copy, just drop me a line. It's alderwanderer at yahoo.

Great idea, seems very useful but what is quattro-pro? Will Excel 07 open it?

Yeah, what do you need to own in order to use it?

Ah, Quattro Pro...an old Borland spreadsheet program. I think Corel owns it now. Haven't used it in a long time (probably 1993 or so), but I'm sure there are still new versions being released.

Yep, I have both excel and quattro-pro on my computer (it's an older model, what can I say). I'm pretty sure the later excel versions could open this document.

I can't believe my post was stickied. I feel so honored! I'd like to thank the academy... (the mage's academy, which one did you think I meant)

Im not sure if Alder even hangs out on these boards anymore, so you might be sticky all by yourself arazmus.
