Title: Anarchy Character Generator
Post by: Aria on (16:41:38/10-12-16)
I've whipped up a quick Excel doc based on the SR5 one I've been working on with others...hopefully it will be useful to some!  Any comments very welcome!

Also, any Shadow Amps you've created that you'd like to see added?  Very happy to expand on it!

Thanks

Oh, and I will add character advancement in version 02...

I'm going to try it now, but I wanted to post here that regardless of the result: Thank you for dedicating time for making Anarchy even more accessible and easy to create characters for.

All right! Let's see what this sheet can do, I'll edit with my comments later.

EDIT:
And now my thoughts:
This is beautiful.
Easy and intuitive to use, creating a character is even more painless than before.
Everything seems to be working properly, and while I'd enjoy some flair for the end sheet or something that is more printer friendly, the actual mechanic of adding skills, shadow amps and gear works flawlessly.

This is a keeper, thanks again for sharing!

Glad it's useful!  I have to apologise a bit for the sheet formatting...it is set up to display on Obsidian Portal where I store most of my characters, might see if I can do a sheet that uses the forum coding too!

That would make pbp right on this very website be even more viable, I'd really appreciate it.

OK, V2 available, I've added the character advancement stuff and a pbp sheet (although it's pretty basic still)

For V3 I intend to trawl through the pre-genned characters and add any of their amps to the list on the Excel, but that's for another day!

Enjoy

Oops! Missed the additional skill point for humans! Add manually for now and I'll pick it up in v3  ::)

Thank you, once again.
I'll run some tests for the new version.

Any comments appreciated! Only used it a couple of times myself so may have missed the odd calculation! Would be good if it alerted you to too many skill choices perhaps... will have to mull that one!

Having started using the sheet in anger I've spotted some errors so here's V3...hopefully there won't be too many more mistakes so any revisions from here will be collating additional Amps from here and elsewhere...

Sorry folks, another oops!  I think I have misinterpreted the cha gen for weapons / gear and contacts... I added the figure in the campaign level table to the numbers in the subsequent text...looking at the sample characters that is clearly wrong so just delete the first figure in the available cell so that it is just calculating the campaign level stuff!  Looks like V4 will have to come out sooner than I'd thought :P

This is useful. Even if you don't use it as a generator, it's still great to have collated lists of what all the options are. Thanks for the work that went into it.

Request: it would be great if melee weapon damage took Critical Strike into account, not just Strength + weapon modifier.

Can do that easily enough!  Although the option to add D to hit or +1 to damage might not be possible...
Title: Re: Anarchy Character Generator
Post by: Aria on (08:31:27/10-25-16)
Here we go...v4 correcting the mistakes I could find in genning my own characters!

Thoughts and suggestions welcome as ever!  Enjoy!

Still enjoying this.

The "Expert Shot" positive quality (+2 Firearms) isn't listed at the end of Anarchy but it is on two sample characters (p. 99 and p. 131). It's not on the current list of qualities in the builder.

Ah thanks for that! I went through the amps on the sample characters but not the qualities ::)

Post by: Aria on (08:34:45/11-21-16)
Newest version, minor tweaks and a few additional amps!  Still working on collating more...

Hey Aria, great work.
I forked your generator form and made a Google Spreadsheet optimized for printing. My players all seem to have the gremlins quality and love to have their characters printed out old school. I adapted the Anarchy design but my sheet looks quite different (tried to attach a screenshot). It's made for DIN-A4 not US-Letter format but I guess it might just fit as well.
Here's the link to the Printable Character Generator (Google Spreadsheet): https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1S4M_81E_dwfEqwqQPPkayO_zzNAnJVvioIW5V74oabQ/edit?usp=sharing
Hope you don't mind me building on your work.  ;D
