DM said: Curious in how people build their own databases. I know to use this as a template: <a href="https://bitbucket.org/mlenser/5eshapedscript/wiki/" rel="nofollow">https://bitbucket.org/mlenser/5eshapedscript/wiki/</a>... But when you want to add a LOT of monsters or spells, how do you go about it? Do you use something like Notepad ++ or something else? Do you copy the template over and over or do you have other methods to help streamline it a bit? I see that the script has the SRD and the Unearthed Arcana on one line each. Do you do that after your done? Seems like it would be very difficult to try and edit the data that way. I ask because it would seem to take forever to go monster by monster if you had to just copy the template over and over again. However, this just may be the way to go. If so, then hats off to those who have done it before. I created a tool with Java for this a while back for monsters and spells. <a href="https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BzZ2o6uO0jwJZmJhRWxsUm1WNjQ" rel="nofollow">https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BzZ2o6uO0jwJZmJhRWxsUm1WNjQ</a> I've used it to add virtually every spell in D&D 5e to my own database in addition to every monster in the D&D 5e monster manual, including all possible variants for each monster (such as lair/region actions, Ettercaps having the garrote, psychic gray ooze, etc.) As I'm typing this I'm also adding Xanathar's Guide spells to my main database file as well using these same tools. Using them should be relatively straightforward, but I mostly built it for myself rather than others so I don't know if what's intuitive for me is unintuitive for others. Some features to note: Hitting the Enter key will jump to the next field. Some fields will only appear if you hit Enter on the related field (for example, the Hover check box won't appear unless you enter a fly speed). Hitting the Calculate button will automatically do a Ctrl + C on the end result. For the Monster tool, putting an entry that was created using this tool into the main text box and checking the Reverse checkbox next to the Calculate button before hitting Calculate will re-add all of the entries so that you don't have to keep retyping an entire monster that's really similar to another (for example, orcs, kobolds, etc. that only have a slight difference between the various kinds). Being a complete novice at programming (less than a year of experience), this was hell to put together but it has definitely been worth it as it has saved me countless hours doing all these entries.
