    It will be nice to see this fully implemented and populated. Right now the information is out there but its limited to individual spreadsheets that people have uploaded. Having a central, database driven site to reference will be awesome!

    Interesting. They seem to have some of the DMsG adventures, but not all of them. Not sure why it would be incomplete or how to make suggestions for them.

    It's incomplete because people didn't add data for some. You add them by creating an account and adding them.
    I never claimed to be sane. Besides, it's more fun this way.

    So it relies on the authors or publishers to input the data? Interesting, I would have thought they would have parsed the DMsG for at least all of those.

    But, I understand the challenge in putting such together, at least it is a central location.

    It relies on someone to input the data. It includes much more data (for filtering) than any website currently has and thus must be hand molded.

    I was working on something similar to this for personal use. I imagine I'll be contributing heavily to this.

    I really love this idea, it makes it easier to look up for things you might need in a session. More than one time I have asked myself what adventure I could use with my PCs at a determined place or time, without having it derailed what I already have, sometimes one can have an idea, but pressed for time, this is a must. Specially if it gets populated with information for all the adventures out there, published and unpublished content, and better if it provides a link to where can we buy them.

    The DMs Guild data is incomplete. We talked about parsing it but then we'd have a database full of half-finished records.

    We're already at 800+ adventures which is like 500+ adventures in less than 48 hours. Plus we have lot of curators cleaning stuff up and new features being worked on. It's only going to get better.

    One thing we're adding is a "VTT Ready" boolean!

    Got it. I've been noticing how quickly it is growing. Nice to see
