Re: The Character Sheet of Wondrous Automation

Excellent. I will copy/paste these into the sheet.

Re: The Character Sheet of Wondrous Automation

Maezar, might want to recheck the attribute-based modifiers. My players noticed that a 13 CON populated with +1 to poison and 0 to HP when it should be the other way around. Also, an 8 STR should have a dmg. adj. of -1, but it is calculating as 0.

Re: The Character Sheet of Wondrous Automation

Fixed!

Re: The Character Sheet of Wondrous Automation

And another note from one of my players: 

"[Shaman should have] an 8 in 12 chance to cure a familiar disease or poison, 4 in 12 for not familiar. The sheet says 4 in 12 for both."

Good stuff, Handy and Maezar.

Re: The Character Sheet of Wondrous Automation

All of this will be released as beta 1.14

PS: Handy, just a quick note for any future spell descriptions, "save vs. sorcery" is abbreviated "SV:Sor" by the sheet.

Re: The Character Sheet of Wondrous Automation

Some other abbreviations:

t — turn
CT — Casting Time  (so, for example: CT:6t = Casting time 6 turns)
AOE — Area of Effect
Init. — Initiative

Re: The Character Sheet of Wondrous Automation

I don't know how well these will come out, but here are three images of a pregen character, one of 15 I'm going to offer for a GaryCon pickup game. These are purely Hyperborean characters! Blackadder23's "Waifs of the Boreas" provided stats, gear, names, spells, and the rest, and I'm pretty sure BA23 used Colin Chapman's many fine documents (Masks, Names, Height and Weight) for his parameters. Then they were placed on Maezar's Character Sheet of Wondrous Animation--and Blackadder23 was kind enough to make character portraits. If this works, I present Prokopios of the Howling Hills, Kimmerian Shaman of the Hawk:

And there's more where he come from!

Re: The Character Sheet of Wondrous Automation

More notes:

I think the berserker MV rate is defaulting to 50 rather than 40. I can't find antyhing in the manual about increased MV for berserkers; only monks and barbarians get the Run ability when unencumbered (which means an encumbered or more-than-lightly armored barbarian loses quite a lot of MV. One of my players had a berserker in banded who is carrying enough to be ecumbered. As far as I can tell, this should make her MV 20. The sheet has her with a base of 40 in banded, 30 when encumbered.

Re: The Character Sheet of Wondrous Automation

Hand axe does not appear as a favored weapon for Legerdemainist/Mountebank.

Re: The Character Sheet of Wondrous Automation

Sheets look good! Nice to see real data instead of dummy data. I fixed those details you mentioned.

Looks like you definitely do not have the suggested font installed. Let me know if I can help with that.

Re: The Character Sheet of Wondrous Automation

Oof, I thought I had installed it. I've been working with these on a remote desktop from my work computer, so there are various layers at work. I'll see what I can do.

My players definitely like the sheet--though only one of them has done the input work himself! I feel like I'm getting pretty capable with it now. It's really a time saver, esp. for keeping track of gear and encumbrance and for class abilities. And spells. In short, I endorse this event and/or product!

Re: The Character Sheet of Wondrous Automation

Smoke cloud (P1): 8,000 cu. ft. Can self-center; movement places self in. Coughing, eye irritation, obstructs vision: Missiles may be fired 10' into at −4; melee −4.

Re: The Character Sheet of Wondrous Automation

And a note from my player on his second shaman (third?):

"Just noticed another bug in the shaman medicine man stat line. He has an 8/12 cure ability for familiar poison/ disease and a 4/12 for unfamiliar ones. According to the medicine man description his 16 wisdom gives him a +1 to this ability, so it's 9/12 and 5/12."

Re: The Character Sheet of Wondrous Automation

Some more errata:

--Bard HD type should be d8
--Spelling error in bard abilities (llegends)

Re: The Character Sheet of Wondrous Automation

Detect venom: Rev. poison in victim. Rev. poisonous creature/object. 360 deg. Rotation in 1t.

Faerie fire: Lambent glow 10' sq. ft./CA (1 Med. Or 2 Small/CA). Grants +1 to hit.

Re: The Character Sheet of Wondrous Automation

This sheet is amazing! Thanks for all the hard work!

I'm creating an Excel sheet with full spell descriptions, range, class/level, etc. If you're intrested I would be happy to share the information with you. I have more than half of the illusionist spells complete and I hope to finish the rest by the new year.

Re: The Character Sheet of Wondrous Automation

LEGERDEMAINIST (Mountebank, Fire Thief) should have "Axe, Hand" listed as a favoured weapon.

I'll second this.  The screenshots look gorgeous but, as the person above, I run OpenOffice.  Any chance on a version for that?  I know Oo has an issue with MS Office macros...
