Great!

This is a great tool, perfect for whipping up some quick pre-gen characters for a one-night game.

Now I just wish someone would build something like this with powers built in. I know it'd be a ton of work but it would be great.

I wanted to do something like that. First, the work itself is daunting. Second, I don't want to do all that work and wind up with a C&D letter for copyright infringement.

I hope someone does it though in 3.5 the hero builder saved my hide many a night, and since this year I am running at gencon I have to hope someone sets ssomething up before then

Found something else:

Should the Enhancement bonus in the Weapons section on page 2 apply to both attack rolls and damage sections in the section on page 1? Right now only the attack modifier is showing.

Hey, great work!
But it would be great to have races with their bonuses to skills etc too!

Also I don't know how to include such things as rogue's bonus with daggers and increased shuriken damage other than adding custom weapons like "Rogue's shuriken" and "Rogue's dagger"

Put racial bonuses in the "Misc" category. A races pull down is coming in 2.1. Stay tuned.

On CharSheet2, look at the second line for the weapon. There are two fields by the "RACIAL/CLASS BONUSES" called "ATK" and "DMG." They are for attack bonuses and damage bonuses, respectively.

Are there any plans to eventually include the masterwork armors?
Absolutely. Not including them was an oversight on my part.

Great sheet. Is there anyway to fix the "heavy thrown" weapons like handaxe and throwing hammer so they use STR instead of DEX for Attack and Damage?

I did do a work-around; it would just be more elegant if it took it into account automatically.

Edit: and I just figured out you already accounted for it! Good work!

How do I get my attack powers in? As a Warlock, for instance... I can select "Rod: Eldritch Blast" but it doesn't factor in my charisma, and I can't select any other powers, and writing them in on the second sheet doesn't allow them to show up on the first.

You can add new attacks either by adding a weapon on the DATA sheet (hidden) or on the DATA2 sheet.

Did you change the listed ability in the ABIL field on CharSheet2 to CHA? It's a drop-down.

I don't have any other attacks available other than basic attacks. Anything else, you should refer to the text (I also highly recommend the use of power cards as an accessory to the sheet.).

Actually, the ACPs for plate armor and heavy shields are off, too. I'm also getting #REF errors on the 1st page when trying to place a thrown dagger in the attack section.

(I'm using the OpenOffice version, if that helps.)

I had the same #REF error in the OpenOffice version, a workaround is to unhide the data sheet, and rename the Dagger (Thrown) to Thrown Dagger, and likewise for anything else with ( ) in the name.

This sheet is sweet though, looking forward to 2.1 :)

Edit: Hmm, having done this though, it's giving the wrong stats on Page 1. Not sure what's going on.

When you make this fix, you have to reselect the drop-down on page 2, then on page 1. I will fix these names in the sheet for 2.03 and post.

Belorin, I've specifically flagged those fields as text, now.

Still Love It

I'm still loving the sheet. I rolled up three level 5 pregens today using it.

I understand the apprehension for powers. Even having more room on the sheet for power descriptions would help. I can put in the actual power information but right now I'd have to write them out on a separate sheet.

Reducing the Appearance, Background, and Campaign notes sections could add a fair amount of room for Power descriptions broken out with the proper fields. Some drop boxes might even help calculate the attribute vs Defense scores and maybe even damage.

This wouldn't require putting in any information about powers in the sheet itself.

Thanks again for the hard work!

Since my excel-fu is puny and minor (or some would say non-existant), how do I access the hidden data sheets?

The big thing that'll help charsheets will be the inclusion of powers. I'm hoping the SRD has similar power info as 3.5 one... hopefully then some homebrew stuff including it will be a bit easier.
