rpg-module – Typesetting old-school Dungeons and Dragons modules
This package provides a LaTeX class for authors of Role-Playing Game adventure modules for Dungeons and Dragons and similar games. The typesetting is reminiscent of the “old-school” modules published in the early 1980s and attempts to recapture the look and feel of those classic adventures.
The package also includes the Basic Stats style, which contains stat blocks for every monster from the Moldvay/Cook/Marsh Basic/Expert version of the game.
