Expert Dungeons and Dragons Character Creator

Once again, I find myself totally swamped with work today, but I managed to steal a little time during lunch to work on the continuing upgrade of my Moldvay rules-compatible Basic D&D self-filling character sheet to a full-fledged Expert D&D-compatible sheet.

It's got a ways to go yet, but I've gotten most of the bits working the way they should (including fixes to some of the Basic sheet's code that apparently wasn't working the way it should have been). When the sheet's done, you'll be able to use it to randomly generate characters and parties of all allowable levels, and have them equipped with a variety of magic weapons and items from the B/X rules.

Hopefully, the sheet will be fully functional within the next couple of days. In the meantime, here are a couple of sample characters to whet your appetite:

  2. I suppose I should just add a line about this to every post wherein I use these, given how often I'm asked this question; the illos aren't mine (I wish) - they're clip art from clipart.com.
