Online character sheets...
« on: May 18, 2007, 11:48:14 AM »

I'm working on creating a template for PC Gen outputs that will post nicely on Cheddarmongers.

Here's Ched:  http://www.cheddarmongers.org/prod/characters/ched

and here's Lunk (new and improved): http://www.cheddarmongers.org/prod/characters/lunk

Of course, Lunk's template is a work in progress...  Ched's template includes all the stuff I'm trying to cram onto the page.

Is this one for Fabians game? Maybe all us other players shouldn't know EVERYTHING about each other? :icon_suspicious:

I was gonna say...  :icon_razz: but seriously more so than any incarnation before D&D 3.5e relies a great deal on meta-gaming to get the most out of it. If you want to defeat opponents it's good to know what your fellow party members are capable of. If you do post the sheets online, consider leaving out biog details if you have any, or leaving out particular magic items that you don't want the others to know about.

Does it have transients who kill things for money?  Do you roll a d20?

But... that takes all the fun out of bragging and grossly exaggerating ones own talents  :icon_scratch:
My Character isn't exactly the type who would be out in the open about anything, no matter how trivial - not even to his friends.

David can you make it something that only the player (and Fabian) can see on your site? That way we would all have access to our character no matter where we are but also Keep that air of mystery.

OOH!  I can get the "private" mod for my site, which adds a "private" checkbox to content.  That way only the creator and those with "see private" privleges can see it.  Sound good?  I'll promise not to peek!  I generally don't use the superadmin account in my site anyway, preferring to see it as normal people would.

You don't have to post the PCs there Bodhi, and I can see that it is sometimes fun to brag about non-existant abilities. I've seen several tournament characters who have a completely different set of skills to those they tell the other PCs they have.

I have a couple of ideas for your first adventure now, and I hope you guys won't be too upset if it doesn't end before I have to head off to the States. At least we'll give it a go!

It should move fast since all of the players are online regularly. When do you leave again?

12 June is when I leave; combat can take a v. long time on PbP just to warn you, but I'll type out guidelines in my first actual play post.
