Re: pc or pregen generator

Thanks Gizmo: just ran another test, looks like the Empty Hand attack rate is still 2e, not 3e (1/1 vs. 2/1). But if you haven't done a 2e->3e check that would make sense. I'll try and generate one of each class over the next few days.
Is there a tip jar I can toss some sequins in for your work? https://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png

Re: pc or pregen generator

I think the monk is working properly now, at least Rhialto says so :-)

I am still working through the changes in class abilities.


What? Me worry?

Re: pc or pregen generator

During some local testing noticed that for Oon's the "random name" stuff not working.

It should be working now.

Still gonna be very rare for an Oon to retain their 'number name' with my system. Basically if no name is given for an Oon then a random race is chosen and a name based on that. If the race is Oon for the random selection then a 9 digit number is created and used for the name.

Re: pc or pregen generator

Made a decent number of changes in the backend and and such.

Let me know if you notice anything wrong.

I think I've caught most problems but I know I've had to missed stuff.

I did get a numbered Oon name recently, but likely before your changes: I'll try again in the next few days.

Re: pc or pregen generator

Cool.

The logic for numbered names was there, it just kinda barfed when making any other kinda name for an Oon.

I think the odds are something like 3 in 1000 ( 4/100 * 1/12) based on tables 66 and 67 for Races.

Re: pc or pregen generator

I've made some progress towards having multiple output formats and getting the 3e character sheet shorted out.

Here's an example of what I have so far:


https://www.dropbox.com/s/bez86doijdkbn3n/bard-12.pdf


https://www.dropbox.com/s/cxb2spu7fnd8au1/fighter-level-12.pdf


The pdf will accommodate more text in some fields but it is nigh unreadable. Something I need to sort out.

I am only having it only use the 4 page version if the character has spells and such.

I'm about 80-90% there with stuff. Soonish I hope to update the web app, too.

Re: pc or pregen generator

Looks good Gizmo: sadly I haven't had time to test the existing web app due to work. Seems like I could wait for the updates?

Yeah, I would wait a bit.

I'm pretty close to having my local program where I want in terms of filling out the 3e character sheet.

I'm going through abilities to shorten their descriptions to better fit.

I'm pondering where to note weapon mastery for fighter types. Probably in the melee/missile tables in the notes section. Which I also need to clean up some descriptions
