Style Guide

The following guides describe the expected format for submissions to the Cairn website.
All submissions must be written in markdown.

Adventures

Relics

Relics utilize the following template:

#### Relic Name, # charges
- Note about the cool relic 
- **Recharge**: How does it recharge (if applicable)

Monsters (in an adventure conversion)

  • If an ability score is 10, you may omit it if you choose.
  • Note the numbers appearing before the stats (e.g. 2 HP, 1 Armor)
  • The standard monster format is as follows:
#### Monster Name
# HP, # Armor, # STR, # DEX, # WIL, weapon1 (d#), item or ability (special details)
- Special 1 (critical damage, special abilities, etc)
- **Critical Damage**: What happens?

Bestiary (the Monsters directory on the website)

  • Note the Front Matter (starting with ---) at the beginning, and the empty line at the end.
  • Note the space between the Monster Name, the stats, and the special entries.
  • Include every ability score, even if they are only 10.
  • For an example, see here and the raw text here
  • Monster submissions to the website (distinct from an adventure conversion) must utilize the following format.
