Veins of the Earth compatible Excel Random Cave Generator

Veins of the Earth compatible Excel Random Cave Generator

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $0.00

An Excel widget to generate random caves based on the rule set in Patrick’s Stuart’s Vein's of the Earth (VotE)

VotE can be purchased here

What this product does
You can run this as a standalone Cave Generator, use it in your VotE game, or it can be used to check you are using Patrick’s dice method ‘correctly’ before game night!

Click a button and the worksheet tells you:

  • size of the cave
  • location of cave entrance
  • number of exits
  • where the exits are
  • size of each exit
  • how far to the next cave
It basically executes a rule system.

What this product does not do
Does not contain any art, monsters or cave dressing materials etc. from VotE. For those, I encourage you to buy VotE. 

This product is in no way endorsed or approved by Lamentations of the Flame Princess and/or by Patrick Stuart.

Please also note, this worksheet uses macros. To the best of my knowledge, the macros used in this worksheet are safe. However, these macros are run at the users own risk. By downloading this product, you accept that risk.

Excuse my ignorance, but will the "Excel widgets" of this generator work in OpenOffice Calc or LibreOffice Calc? For the most part, Excel macros do, but I know nothing about Excel widgets.

Hi Stuart.

I'm using 'widget' here just to mean sort of 'program' i.e. running macros. The short answer to your question is: I don't know.

I tried an experiment an exported it into GoogleSheets (GS) and the engine transferred over well enough, even the look was preserved (which surprised me). However the refresh button ('New Cave' button) did not appear to work. That said, hitting F5 did force the sheet to generate a new cave (slowly). Interestingly, you can set GS to refresh automatically every minute if you want.

My suggestion is to try an import the sheet into whatever program you have and see what happens ...

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
