Description: Titardinal’s Spire is an ordinary-seeming stone tower at the edge of a large, live-giving lake. Few borderlands towers are so well placed, and it has changed hands many times. Unfortunately, Titardinal wove magic into every brick of his tower, making it a difficult place to hold onto for long. But the wizard’s loftiest ambition was never achieved—perhaps you will claim it!

Spreadsheet Adventure Modules (SAMs)

If you don’t know what SAMs are about – then please see the video which explains the ‘Big Idea‘ behind using Excel to present module information in a super compact fashion. There is also a 5 minute How-to-Guide video which shows you all you need to know to get started.

    This is an amazing way to present interactive content. I dig it.

    I wonder if you could do similar things with some advanced PDF features – I’ve seen dice rollers and similar in PDFs before

      This is my DIY workaround (i.e. using Excel).
      I began making these SAM modules to flag up the possibilities.
      I can imagine there are other, better, ways to implement the general concept/idea.
      I think it has to be only a matter of time before RPG publishers include this kind of feature in their .PDFs.
      I’m sure it must be possible for example using layers.
      Thanks for taking the time to comment!
