ZEITGEIST ZEITGEIST in legacy character builder


I am coding some XML to work with the Legacy Character Builder to add ZEITGEIST items.

I am not here to discuss the methods you need to get this to work, that information can be found online on other websites.

The current version of the file can be found: Zeitgeist.part UPDATED: 7/29/2011

An example character:Fendran the Zeitgeist Elf Hunter

Fixed the Vekeshi Mystic power issue.

Finished all the feats. Finished paragon paths features (not the powers associated with paragon paths yet).

I am working my way through the powers, this will take the longest.


Ragged idiot in a trilby.
Awesome. Thank you for doing this.

I think you've got the damage dice for the musket wrong - listed as a D8, should be a d10.

Your correct. The item itself is listed as 1d8 in the description. But in the equipment table and on the power card it is listed as 1d10. I will correct this in the next push. Almost done with the powers, although I haven't checked them to see if the way I am fixing them will work.


I updated the Hunter , and Rogue classes.
All the crossbow powers are updated.

Unfortunately I was not able to get the power to work correctly with AppendNodes, instead i used RulesElement. This means if the powers are updated or changed by another mod this could complicate things, later on.

UPDATE: oh no just ran into a bug, i will work on it later, it has to do with purchasing Firearm Ammunition.
UPDATE: fixed the error, there was a duplicate name.
UPDATE: I linked an example character.

Humongous thanks to the OP, this will help a lot. I wonder how many players of 4ed know about that little program-which-should-not-be-named...
This .part seems to be based on original player's guide and not the expanded version (i.e. no theme powers apart from the 1st level), but I think I'll be able to update it, it's still WAY easier than to write it from scratch

NOTE TO MOD: could you please add Zeitgeist thread icon to this? I found this thread completely by accident, because it's not listed when searching for all "Zeitgeist" threads
UPD: thanks

I've sent you a PM with some info about the program in question. Perhaps these exact materials should not, in fact, be stickied, despite being very useful both for players and DMs...

Regarding other fan materials, some links are given in Resources section of the main web site, maybe a separate thread, which compiles them, can be created?
