Online character creation tool needs some enhancements

posted Jul 17, 2017 10:15:23 by AshBackhouse
the online character creation at either needs a lot more explanation to it or at least the ability to go back steps rather than having to restart if you believe you've made a mistake or in some cases wanted to look at what the out come would be with certain choices.

what do i mean by this take the first choice of homeland each one has a talent but i don't actually know what those talents do until i've chosen the homeland, to make this easier to know what i'm getting into how about the ability to hover over each talent listed and the explanation given there rather than me choosing and then reloading the sheet if i don't like it/want it/doesn't fit with my idea.

also skills it doesn't really give a good idea of what skills do so sometime's you're making choices on things you know nothing about.

i know the link is to a different games character creation sheet but this creator makes it easy to understand each choice you will make and has the ability to go back 1 step at a time if you accidently click on the wrong choice maybe you could take some pointers from it.

This generator is to allow you to make the character from the book. Not as a stand alone software to skip the book.

It works perfect for me. I read the book and decide what I want, and this allows me to fill out the sheet without typing evrrything out.

I agree. It would be nice if it had more options. Even if it let you just type in your own stuff and go back and forth through steps. I am curious if the splat stuff will be added.

@ Data Lore

I don't know. But I find it unlikely they will put too much effort into it until all the KS shipments are honored. Until the actual product, as in physical books, hits distribution and can be seen on the store shelf. Everything else is extra fluff for later.

Hopefully the online generator is better meeting player needs. It's an ongoing process.

As we add books we're adding functionality, though some of the most-requested features (a back button, entry of player content) weren't part of the original set of requirements (I'm not sure why).

Would it be possible to have the printed character sheet capture all the generated storyline text from the character? It's a shame that your War Story, etc... is all missing from the printout.
