spellbook generator

Let's give this its own thread.

https://www.gizmomathboy.com/spellbook

I have added all spell casting classes and have them working as near as I can tell.

Shamans get the extra fun problem of choosing cleric or druid (ecclesiastical) spell lists *and* magician or necromancer (thaumaturgical).

So, a bit unwieldy form but it works.

No to get my frankenstein app that is the npc party generator in web app form.

Report any problems you find and such.
 


What? Me worry?

Re: spellbook generator

Not a problem, but since it resets to "bard" each time, could you display the class the spellbook pertains to as part of the report? E.g., "Spells in Spellbook" -> "Spells in Shaman Spellbook"?

Re: spellbook generator

Indeed an excellent suggestion.

I also realized I should also include the spell lists the shaman is using.

Regarding shamans. Should it be a 50/50 chance for each form of magic when it needs to be chosen randomly?

Should it be 3:4 cleric to 1:4 druid, and 3:4 magician to 1:4 necromancer?

I can see the cleric/druid split being close to even. I'm not so sure about the magician/necromancer split.

Re: spellbook generator

I’d say roughly 2:1 cleric:druid and magician:necromancer.

I can abide that. Adjusting accordingly.

Doesn't appear to be generating content for Ice Lord, Ice Thief, Fire Lord, Fire Thief. https://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/errr.png
