There are a number of spaces in front of commas you might look at with a global replace. Such as page 12 or so the special table. Plus some double spaces in the text here and there. Some format tables, the others are sloppy editing.
I think I got most if not all of those, may likely do another pass before it's good for print release.

I no longer use LibreOffice...
Personal preference? I still have layout problems with some documents, but it can often relate to different fonts used on each system (even if they're named the exact same) as well as having to re-check any styles, etc. used.

(This is more a reply to everyone and not just JD): I'm still learning little things all the time, and hopefully I can help your adventures (as well as all other submissions) all look and read their best, have consistent styling, layout, formatting, etc. As always please let me know, or feel free to make a post on the Style Guide or Adventure/Supplement Templates threads if something needs to be (re-)addressed, discussed/debated, etc.

Bad dog, no biscuit. If you want the paragraph to stay together, you use the paragraph options to keep the paragraph together. This way, when the document flow changes, you won't have to find and remove that extra blank paragraph.
This is my public apology to J.D. Neal. When I wrote those words above, what was in my head was light-hearted and positive; when I re-read them, I saw nasty and negative. If another forum member wrote that, I'd have been sending them a warning right away. I should have read it over before hitting SUBMIT; if I had, I'd have omitted the "bad dog, no biscuit" bit entirely, and rewritten the rest so the tone was solid and professional.

I hardly ever write the way I speak. Around here, the "bad dog, no biscuit" joke has no teeth, and I never considered that it might be rather harsh in print. Normally I edit out all the bits like that, because I never know how someone will see them.

But this is an apology, not me trying to weasel out of anything. I wrote those words, and I can see how cross and nasty they read now, and I am truly and heartily sorry.

To anyone else reading these words: If you are an author, contributor, artist, proofreader, or any other sort of member of this project, and I have been rude to you, consider this my apology to you as well. I really never mean to be an ass, it just happens sometimes.

Anyone can mis-communicate at times. I have done so myself, both in personal matters and also in my work environment.

I certainly do hope that jdn2006 knows that we all very much appreciate the contributions he has done around here! I cannot imagine not having his Chaotic Cave and Giants modules available for my games. Even when I sandbox, I figure out how to get these integrated one way or another.

I am currently running this module and was wondering: what sort of program was used to make the wilderness maps. I really like the style. It is easy to read and to use as a GM.

I would like to make something similar for my own wilderness maps. Thanks!
