    Is there any chance that you'll be adding the Eberron races from Unearthed Arcana, and/or allowing multiple custom races to be added and saved for future use?

    Also, maybe being able to add custom feats/classes and edit existing classes (i.e., wizard to add Artificer path)?

    Currently Eberron information from Unearthed Arcana is "use at your own risk" and as such the material is for mainly for play testing. Once final versions are released I'll think about adding them later. For now, try using the custom race in the tool.

    For adding more than one race - It only takes a minute or so to enter in a custom race, and as such I'm planning to leave it as it for now.

    Custom Classes are very challenging and require many possible options to design a class and subclass, as well as to make it work within the tool (and D&D 5e game) mechanics. Short answer, no plans to do this. Recommend for custom classes to use a "form fillable" or blank character sheet - there are plenty of these available.

    Likewise, designing a feat to work within the tool framework is challenging. There are so many possibilities (limited by your imagination)!

    Gotcha...

    As for Feats, I just really wanted to add in the Dragonmarks.

    Shield Bonus doesn't seem to add to AC in Ver 1.30. Thanks For Tool Section Fix.

    Thanks for the update. Issue found, fixed in V1.32

    Here's a quick look at the new Character Sheet I format in V1.32 - cool...

    Went for a clean look with minimal printed ink on the paper, the formatting applies to all sheets I-V

    Are you looking forward to it?

I think this is reasonable as some magical items might enhance or curse your overall proficiency (extraordinarily powerful items - artifacts etc.)
    Indeed that would be a fine way to work it. There was an Ioun Stone: Pale Green Prism (Mastery) as treasure in a module I just ran. Such an adjustment would cover that Ioun stone, my house rules, and more.

    Roll20 is an online gaming platform that allows users to play Tabletop RPGs over the internet. Do a quick google. I have not used had a chance to use it. I'm getting back into D&D after a long hiatus. I had another thought, have you considered a tab for Adventurer's League data? I play every week and I've added a sheet to track my Character, DCI#, etc. It certainly is not styled as nicely as your sheets and it doesn't have nearly the thought and effort. That said, I now have everything in one XLS file on my iPad and I can just have that on hand during the game. It's speeded up the transaction time for my turns tremendously!

    Cool, great to hear. For adventurer's league data I did add sheet V awhile back for this sort of "stuff". I'm currently working on a new design / format for sheet I - V for v1.32 (you can check it out in one of the last posts in the base thread)

    I see you are using the Tyranny of Dragons iconography. Be cool if there was an option to use the Elemental Evil theme as well. It looks nice!

    Planning on this logo and the character portrait to be editable in a different way via "replacing" the existing image with a different one. Users of Office 2007-2010 will be able to resize and edit the photo (including some of the cool artistic effects in Excel). Actually it is possible to design "skins" for the sheet, interested?


    2 examples below done by Excel effects and styles...

    Very fancy. This sheet is getting insanely good.

    V1.32 is released, enjoy and have fun using it!

    Feedback for V1.32:
    • Hero Points switch has become broken.
    • Proficiency Dice misspelled on sheet in skills column.
    • Reset Macro seems to be removing "Adventure Notes" header on page 4.

    I will make some characters in a few minutes and try it out. Looks great.

    Thanks for the feedback, all points corrected in V1.33

    This tool is fantastic! Only one gripe: The printout hardly readable. It may not be that problematic in Letter, in A4 everything is incredibly small. Is there any way to increase the font size, especially in the race, Background, Class & Feats fields? As it is it is not really usable when your eyes are not 100% :-(
