Whenever I take an interest in something I think to myself, “How can I combine this with R?” This post is the result of applying that attitude to Dungeons and Dragons. So how would I combine D&D with R? A good start would be to have a nice data set of Dungeons and Dragons monsters, with all of their statistics, abilities and attributes. One of the core D&D rule books is the Monster Manual.
My knowledge of wine covers three facts: I like red wine. I do not like white wine. I love wine data. I came across a great collection of around 130,000 wine reviews, each a paragraph long, on Kaggle. This is juicy stuff, and I can’t wait to dig into it with some text analysis, or maybe build some sort of markov chain or neural network that generates new wine reviews.
