"SSI's DUNGEON MASTERS ASSISTANT, VOLUME I: ENCOUNTERS is a great time saver for Dungeon Masters (DMs). With thousands of seperate encounters, monsters and characters provided, it can reduce game prep time by several hours per session.
The database is prodigious indeed: Over 1000 encounters and over 1300 monsters and characters, including all monsters from the AD&D® Monster Manuals I & II. Monster records and encounter printouts total several hundred pages! (Note: a printer is not required in order to use this product since data can also be output to disk or screen.) The DM can specify encounters or ask the DM Assistant to generate random ones. DMs can also modify the existing data or add their original monsters and encounters to the database.
With this versatile productm, the computer takes over most of the number crunching work that the DM used to have to perform. Its bookkeeping capabilities include listin all armor and weapons carried by each monster as well as automatically assigning number and type of spells to spell-using monsters. For every encounter, this utility will total treasure and experience points for each monster group. By harnessing the power of the computer, this program makes it practical to use the vast number of monsters and encounters created for the AD&D® game play."
