  • Simple Web Character Roller

    http://arcanearcade.com/icons-gen/
    • Generates 5 characters when page refreshed
    • Outputs pre-formatted text currently (plan to improve UI)
    • Specialities rolled just to see if it provides inspiration
    • Some Origins automatically add Specialities or Powers
      • Trained: +2 Specialities
      • Birthright: +1 Power (the first power)
      • Artificial: Life Support
    • Options at the bottom detail origin customizations
    • Will not generate characters with attributes worth less than 20 or a total value of 40 (will be adjustable later). Just didn't want to roll "duds".

    Code can be found here:
    https://github.com/rstehwien/icons-character-generator

    Note that this requires a modern browser despite the totally primitive display currently. Using some libraries that are overkill for what I'm currently doing.

    The app is now a bit prettier, you don't need to reload the app to generate new characters (there are buttons) and allows you to edit the configuration that determines how the characters are generated. You could replace all the tables if you want. I'll probably add automatic saving/restoring of the characters and configuration at some point soon. Really want to layout the characters so you can see more at once.

      The addition of a layout pushed this to "must use" for anyone that actually plays Icons. Knowing I can hit a button and have a good looking sheet for a villain or a hero is great.

      That said is there any way one could export the sheet that is randomly generated? If I just copy paste I lose all the smexy layout the app is making for me. Sure I could copy the text only entries with no problem but they don't look nearly as cool/organized.

        I'll look into pdf generation, but since all the code is in the browser it will increase the size quite a bit I think.

        I tried printing to pdf from the browser and it didn't look pretty.

            Thanks!

            I only mentioned it here (my first post was premature ... it looks better now). I saw it pop up on rpg.net today. Probably should share it on a few other sites.
