    Question: Why is wizards secondary primary stat Wisdom? I feel like you'd want con or dex before wis?

    Version 4.2 is out: It includes all races and classes from the PHB. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...tor%204.2.xlsx

    Stuff to complete: add the final "backgrounds", spell selection for the phb classes where applicable, and some piddly stuff.

    @sithramir: THANKS FOR THE FEEDBACK I'll look at the wizard.I'll probably randomize it.

    Thanks for the update!

    Still think the primary stats needs resolved. Warlock primary stat should be Cha (not wis). Showing Dex for bard instead of Cha, etc. I rolled a Warlock with 10 CHA as his lowest stat? Not sure primary stats work 100% because of this as it should at least be his second highest right based on formula. It should be Cha as primary though. Basically the Warlock was useless.

    Was going to note you are missing spells but it's planned for version 5 so nevermind hehe!

    Noticed the wizard subclasses, bard subclasses, barbarian subclasses aren't in there yet for abilities too.

    Just love the work! Don't have to listen to me but if you are updating it it's better than me trying to edit something. Great idea.

    I'm really glad you took a look at those. I originally set those to whatever the saves were with only the primary two stats actually mattering (it's not set to min-max beyond the primary two for a class).


    I removed the subclasses for classes that don't get them at first level (wizards, bards, barbarians, etc.).


    The spells aren't in yet, but I did up the AC. I'm going to put remaining spells in version 5.2 or 5.3.


    Thanks a lot for your help!

    Regarding stat distribution:
    The spread for highest is distributed equally (and randomly) amongst the top two.

    So for example: Warlock has Wis and Cha listed as highest. The program randomly picks the top two and randomly assigns them to these. It does not min-max the spellcaster's "primary" ability for diversity's sake. If you got a warlock with a 10 charisma, I can only imagine what the other rolls were! Theoretically, it is possible using the 4d6-d to roll all 3's prior to racial bonus. I've seen a few 4's on testing.


    [edit: I'll make a note about that in the design and simply suggest that people roll up a new character. I'll probably also put in a drop down list so you don't have to wait for the next Warlock to come up. I could min-max certain characters, but it should spark some new ideas when they're not..afterall, if the DM is using this tool for NPC's it won't matter, and for player characters it is an 'inspirational tool' ]

    [edit2: I'm going to set the 2nd stat for Warlock and sorcerer to Dex...are there any others that you see that should be changed? I updated cleric to wis/con, druid to wis/con, warlock,sorcerer to cha/con]

    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...tor%205.0.xlsx


    Also note, I put tiefling/dragonborn at the bottom of the chart in case Gms want to remove them from the random rolls..I'll prob move drow there too.

    I found another reason why it may appear that the main stats aren't min-maxed: racial bonus is added after class determination of order (per phbp.13). I stuck a comment note in the file.

    Looking great.

    The note for replacing stats is no longer in the R column (It's U now). Just confusing until you figure it out.

    On the skills. I'm confused. I don't see the bard listed with all the skills? Well I relooked and bard is at the end but the first "table" doesn't show it? I haven't been looking in super detail at all your linkage as i've been a bit busy. It appears to work now that I think about it.

    Like it and will likely try it in my next group.
