    Bestiary 4 - Group effort to put stats together for Creature Parser

    EDIT: The Bestiary 4 module is now available here: http://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums...y-4-OGL-Module

    MODERATOR:

    The posts below have been moved from another thread to one specific for this topic.

    In order to produce a FG module for the Pathfinder Bestiary 4 OGL content I am putting out a call for community members to help out copy/pasting the text from the Bestiary 4 PDF into a text file. We are splitting the process up into letter portions (A-Z) to reduce the workload overall. I will then combine and run through the creature parser to produce a Bestiary 4 module that I will post in the modules thread on this forum for all to use and enjoy.

    If interested community members would like to help out, reply to this thread with the letter/s section you would like to cover.

    The following is a list of who is doing which section, with a status.

    Letter Range Who? Status
    A - C Trenloe Text file produced and tested.
    D hawkwind text file completed, Trenloe testing
    E - G Trenloe Text file produced and tested.
    H - Z hawkwind Text file completed, Trenloe testing.

    The final text file is attached below for future reference. This was the file used to parse the module.

    First off, tyvm for these. These have made my job soooooo much easier. Just tyvm.

    I do have a question though, is there any future plans for doing the beastiary 4 by chance?

    It's on the drawing board... I'm in the middle of updating the Creature Parser to include more info (link Universal Monster Rules and Feat descriptions so the GM should have most of the info they need to run a creature within the NPC record) and then I use the parser to create the bestiary modules.

    The great thing with the creature parser is that once you have the creature statblock in a correct format in a text file you can just run the same text file through any later creature parsers to get the new functionality added in.

    Current version of the creature parser is available here: https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forum...2-Beta-Version

    Soooo, if you (or someone else) is willing to start putting the text statblocks together in a text file (copy/paste from the Bestiary 4 PDF) then that would make things much quicker. If more than one person wants to help then we could split the creatures up by letter.

    An example of the format of the text file required by the parser is attached below.

    I could then compile all of the various text files together and run it through the latest version of the creature parser to create the module. As I update the creature parser it will allow us to more quickly distribute new features into the modules.

    Ok, quick question. I dont have the pdf for the beastiary 4 but i do have the hardbound book. I had already started on ingame file using ingame stat sheets to create quite a few of them due to older modules actually use alot of these. Didnt know i continued to use that sheet ingame, if that would be able to be shared. Its funny how alot of the older modules and the 3.5/pathfinder ones use alot of those from the 4th one lol
