Importing (Adventure)

Dm.png
This the subsection from the general feature Importing Content.
While Adventures are a collection of Journal/Notes; Monsters; Items; Rollable Tables from the 5e.tools website point of view, in Foundry there are not any "adventures" there are worlds; and there modules.
WORLDS are a full campaign of content; including macros; journals; items; music; system settings and yes - maps (scenes) that are fulling defined with walls, light sources, sound events etc.
MODULES (in this instance) are packages in which the Compandia (plural form of Compendium) for one or more adventure can be stored. There is a discussion on what benefits there are for this elsewhere in the User Guide; but for our purposes the Modules of an adventure is reference book version of the adventure; broken into logical units but not easily read through. Its a way of containing and transferring content into an existing world.
