You can try an automated excel sheet, or  try the demo of hero lab it has data files for pathfinder

I can roll the dice and right down numbers but not having a rule book is a bit of a downer.  I do have some beta pdfs but as I found in the summer there are some bits that are horribly wrong.

Yes I remember that Slug and I think the best bet is either the books which are available in PDF or the Hero lab download which is a similar price to the Main book in as as PDF, wasn't there also somthing strange about the Data on the Herolabs Demo too?

With the Hero Lab Demo Pathfinder Files you can not print or save the character but can preview the printout for copying data to paper char sheet Wink

Ok sorry for being a bit Snarky but its too hot & I have been having difficulty sleeping which makes me grumpy, I am going to be getting the Herolabs Program at the week end and would happily run your character through it if you rolled the dice & chose the class and feats and so forth. I am working on the idea that we can get some sort of text output/ save the character sheet and attach it to a post here or something like that.

I will leave Gizmo to work out the details as he is my pet geek Wink and will also have the program I believe.

Until then have a think about character background things, remembering that they are first level

OK, I am thinking of a rogue who will also be adept with a bow (if it aint broke, don't fix it). I would prefer an elf but if race is an issue can work with something else

Slug - not really I am at least starting with a default D&D type setting so all the races and classes in the Pathfinder book are allowed a thief, sorry rogue would work well.

I am using a points as per Pathfinder page 15 with all the attributes  starting at 10  except the prime requite for your class which will start at 13 but counting as 10 for the costs of spending points to increase it. You will have 18 points to spend as per the chart on page 16 you can decrease attributes as per the table & if you have racial modifiers you can have them as high as 20 or as low as 5 because of them. Racial modifiers are applied after you spend your points.

I will answer any more questions tonight when I have got stuff under control at work

Hi HR

DB here (from LHR group, known Slug for a looonnnnng time). Only just picked up o this thread (some of Slug's summer visit comments now make a little more sense to me).

I may well be interested in join if there are space available, Winchester group don't do D20 D&D stuff so would be happy to get a more regular "fix".

What sort of regularity are we talking for sessions? I don't want to sign up only to find I can't commit enough time to it and annoy everyone.

welcome aboard Debee a pleasure to game with you again. I will leave the details to Hard Rain who is GM, but most on line games are pretty much continuous but with  dead lines for time critical stuff like combat to stop that causing the game to come to a grinding halt. A statement of intent also helps in such cases as a GM can then act for the player if they miss the dead line, according to that statement.

I think Hard rain is planing something combat light and hight on intrigue since that works best online

Hi EvilG nice to hear from you again.

On the subject of software for character creation I have been using Metacreator - does seem much to look at but it is a very flexible system. It does not have Pathfinder rule sets but does have the OGL SRD 3.5 rules.

Gizmo is correct Shocked DeBee you are welcome on board and I defiantly have room for you so far we have a Wizard & a Rouge but given the nature of the game don’t feel constrained too much by party balance as that I find is only ever critical in combat situations and I don’t want to do too much of that as it goes too slowly online. The best thing to go for is a fun character you would like to play.

I am no expert on character generation programs but I would warn you that D&D 3.5 and Pathfinder diverge some what, even if they are similar in many respects. I suggest you look at the SRD for Pathfinder on the PAIZO website for more detail and I think they have conversion rules there too as Pathfinder is designed to be used with 3.5 materials with minimal adjustments.


Even so I will have the HeroLabs character generator at the weekend & will feed the numbers into it as required.

I will be posting a begging thread to give you some background of the game area tonight if work doesn't get too silly busy
