I have been taking part in a 13th Age campaign for the past 6 months or so. It is a really cool system that I would highly recommend anyone interested in Pen & Paper RPGs to check out.
As the story of our party has been developing, it appears that we have come to the end of the line for my trusty, if slightly dim-witted, Half-Orc rogue. While he may yet live to see another day, for the time being he will have to leave the party and make room for someone more morally aligned with the other adventurers. So, I decided to get out my players’ handbook and roll up a new character. While that process isn’t terribly complicated, I felt it would be nice to automate some of the more tedious computations involved in filling out a character sheet.
A quick search revealed that while there was already an Excel spreadsheet that did a lot of what I wanted, it was lacking a nice UI that would let you print a character directly from the web. So, I figured it was time for me to implement just that!
At this point, it is possible to print a character sheet directly from the page. Also, you can save the character to a file and later load it back up to modify it. In addition, I have got the following things implemented:
– All classes and races from the core book as well as the 13 true ways expansion
– Ability scores
– Defense values
– Attack values for standard attacks
– Hit points and recoveries
– Racial Power and Class Features
I know there is still some work left to be done: specifically a lot of feats and abilities that change character stats are not yet implemented. I’ll be testing the system for my own characters in the next few months and try to fill in the missing pieces. As usual, comments and suggestions for improvement are very much encouraged.
