3rd Edition Dungeons & Dragons Character Generator

3rd Edition Dungeons and Dragons Character Generator is an HTML/JavaScript Web page that allows the user to quickly and easily create new Dungeons and Dragons characters. The characters can be of any of the eleven classes, any of the playable races, and may start at any level from 1 to 220. Generation requires some simple input, after which the character is displayed on a basic character sheet. It allows you to select your starting stats, add ability points, and pick skills, equipment, feats, and spells. It runs on most operating systems with most modern browsers.

            Re: Divine Grace
            You're correct about the Divine Grace feature. I will add this
            to the next release.

            As for alignment checking, I will make a small change. The
            generator will warn about alignment restrictions, but not
            enforce them.

            I hope to have the next version out in the first quarter of
            2008, work permitting. If you have any further suggestions
            or bug reports, please e-mail me. I don't often check the
            comments section here.

            Thank you,

            Divine Grace
            the added bonus to saves from the paladin's divine grace isn't added. Also with the addition of some variant classes, for example a chaotic good "Freedom" paladin, might be easier to not have the alignment restrictions. I know I sometimes change things up and allow things that aren't in the rules, so maybe an override mode where those restrictions aren't there would be useful.

            Pre-created characters
            For the next release, I would like to include pre-created (1st level) characters. The user would be able to select pre-made characters from a list, guided by a brief description. For example, "Grog - Half-Orc Barbarian, strong, dumb and ugly."

            So, I am sending out a call for you, the users, to make up some basic, first level characters. Save them in the Generator and e-mail the Save Character text to me. I'll try to include them in the next release. You'll become immortal and it'll aid newbies in creating characters quickly.

            Do not forget to include a name, a small description and your name (if you want credit).

            Internet Explorer bug fixed
            The bug causing the character to
            not display in IE has been corrected as
            of version 2.6.

            Please download and test. Your comments
            are welcome.

            Please help finding bug.
            I've been receiving bug reports from people using

            Internet Explorer (version 6) since the release of the

            Character Generator 2.4

            The bug seems to cause character sheets to not display properly and to make character leveling (after initial creation) impossible.

            These bugs seem to only appear in Internet Explorer.

            Other web browsers, such as Opera, Firefox and Mozilla

            continue to functin normally. So far I have been unable to

            re-produce the IE bug(s). If anyone out there has a copy

            of IE 6.0, would you please try to get a Java Script error and

            e-mail it to me at slicer69 at Thank you.
