I want to play more games and especially run a lot more T&T in 2020. I thought it would be helpful to have a few utilities to support that effort, especially for online play and/or for things I mess up all the time (like assigning adventure points).
Hot off the presses, bugs and all, I'd like to humbly present the online character sheet tool I put together:
Here's what it does today: - Captures all of the data from the Deluxe Tunnels & Trolls character sheet - Loads and saves character data to a plain-text format (TOML) to save locally - Automatically resizes to a phone or tablet friendly view - Optionally lets you load data from a URL string (save and share your character and current state with a bookmark!) - Automatically computes derived attributes (level, weight possible, and personal adds) based on dT&T rules (no penalty for low attributes)
With the big chunk (character sheet) done, I'm planning a few more tools that I will put on the site:
- Adventure point tally/ledger to make it easy to keep track of who has earned what during the course of an adventure - Encounter generator to generate encounters of varying difficulty for parties of a target size and level/adds - Monster tracking tool as a combat aide -- roll the dice for a given MR and track health reduction over time - Random character generator
I hope this is useful to your play! Thank you very much for taking a look, and for any feedback you have!
I couldn't figure out how to make it convenient to track multiple characters on a single tab. Right now I figured it'd be easier for a GM to open one tab per character. If anyone has any requests/ideas, I am all ears.
I hesitated to post this for a couple of days because I have only eyeballed the difficulty balance and I am worried it might not be quite right.
So if anyone uses it please do so with that grain of salt. I've done a lot of comparisons against the wandering encounter chart, and compute an "effective MR" of the initial generated group to try to help GMs get a sense for how much the party will be challenged.
