Re: pc or pregen generator

Well, I have something that seems to work

https://www.gizmomathboy.com/spellbook

I don't have the "fun" spellcasters like shaman, rangers, bard, etc. Those will require some thought and interface stuff.

Logging isn't working so I need to figure out why not so if you find and error and I have some chance to figure out why.


What? Me worry?

Re: pc or pregen generator

well, I got some logging sorted out so I should be able to know why something breaks if it breaks. I hope.

So, have at it.

Re: pc or pregen generator

Several quick attempts look good: nothing untoward so far. Thanks!

Re: pc or pregen generator

Made a minor UX change.

Also, found a problem with ice/fire thief/lord and fixed it.

Re: pc or pregen generator

Very cool! Definitely speeds things up! Extremely useful for on-the-fly procurements of spellbooks and prayerbooks that a referee might not see coming. "Yeah while you guys were negotiating holy water prices with the Abbot I lifted this from the tabernacle, heh"
Many thanks!

Re: pc or pregen generator

Ha, yeah, definitely good for "oh crap, I need something quick!"

My next bit of automation is npc party generation. Still leaning on BlackAdder's encounter tables for this. I just need to work through it and such. Not nearly as easy as this little project was.

Re: pc or pregen generator

Did you ever notice that when you rolled up a magician and then created a pdf there was no HD or HP listed?

Me neither.

Until I was doing some stuff with the npc party generator (rolling HP for the NPC) and got some errors.

I have fixed that now.

Nice! I did notice that the other day when I quick needed a high-level mage stuck in his own clone tank. I figured it was a one time error though. Glad to hear you worked it out! Your tools are a real time-saver.

Re: pc or pregen generator

Thank Jimm.

Someday I'll get the refactor done and maybe have a test suite so I can catch these things.

Re: pc or pregen generator

happened to notice that a 4th level huntsman accidentally got the "wilderness fortress" class ability. Whoops.

Also, the weapon mastery was a bit "wrong" for huntsman but that is fixed, too.

Re: pc or pregen generator

Was playing around tonight, and a 12th-level Magician's "Spells Known" section didn't include Level (just "Ma") or Other Notes (pg., Range, Duration, etc.) for either Lesser or Greater Globe of Invulnerability. https://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png

Re: pc or pregen generator

need to align spell names in 2 files. Needed a reboot to get new kernel so maintenance all around I suppose.

Re: pc or pregen generator

Thanks again for keeping this up. All your generators, esp the spells known generator, have been a godsend. https://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/shout.png

Re: pc or pregen generator

Excellent.

Good to hear folks are using and liking things.

I really need to make time to have an opinionated set of spell book generators, too. :-)

Re: pc or pregen generator

So I think I discovered something else amiss: I generated a 4th-level Scout, and the Track ability doesn't match the book. My gizmo-character sheet PDF has Wilderness: 10:12, non-fresh: 8:12; Non-Wilderness: 2:12, non-fresh: 1:12. The book has Wilderness 7:12, non-fresh 5:12; Non-wilderness 9:12, non-fresh 7:12.

Re: pc or pregen generator

huh, it seems like there are 4 variations to the Track ability. Barbarians, Huntsman, Rangers, and Scouts are just slightly different from each other :-)

I've sorted that out I think.

Re: pc or pregen generator

Yes, it looks like it: randomly generated one of each class, and each comported with the rules tome. Thanks!
