I've been hard at work updating my Magic World Character Generator for NBOS and it's looking pretty good!
I've all but completed the actual character gen process and am working with adding a page for purchasing gear..
Pretty soon we'll have a self contained generator that will take players, step by step, through races (calculating characteristics for human,dwarf, elf,half orc, half elf,and halfling per MW ), calculating starting funds and skills per occupation, calculate skills based on base%, experience raises%, and modifiers, on and on.
The shop page will allow purchasing weapons,gear, and armor placing them in the inventory sheet after spending the bronze. All editable and printable of course.

Almost done....You'll notice a lot of blank spaces. These will be auto filled during generation. Here's 3 of the 6 pages!

Yep. That about does it. All done (I hope)
https://www.dropbox....World Sheet.csd

it's also in the downloads section. I had to drop the Shop/Store section as it was a resource hog.
Hope you Enjoy!

You will also need to download the FREE small NBOS Character sheet designer to open and or edit the sheet, found here:

Don't forget that if you have a free or paid PDF writer installed you can print off PDF versions of the character sheet, choosing which pages to print. (Leaving out the guide and worksheet ,and Magic or Companion sheets if desired. )
You can also use the sheet designer to "edit installed sheet " to get rid of the background pics if you want a less printer ink hogging sheet. :)

Er... downloaded and installed everything. How do you use it? Seems to load up in edit mode.

It's very possible I'm just screwing this up but Hit Points appear to be calculated on the Front Sheet as STR/5 rounded up and not (CON + SIZ)/2.

 

I modified the field in the designer to read (con.value+siz.value)/2 and that seemed to give out what I'd expect.

 

I possibly broke everything else as a result, but hey...

Bah! I was screwing with an update and might have accidentally messed the code up.
Looks like you got it working. It's not TOO difficult to figure out, but can be a pain.
Lemme know if you have other issues.

On that note, does anybody fInd a use for this? Like it? Hate it? Suggestions?

I'm not sure. You'd have to check the NBOS forums.

To piggy back, is there a viewer for mac users?

Only supports WIndows but the link suggest that it may run on WINE but that isn't supported.

So emulation or booting windows are my choices, right?  You need a copy of windows to use WINE, don't you?  I forget.  It's been years since I've looked at it.

I'm guessing that any Windows emulator may work and the better you are at tweaking such an install the better it's likely to work.

I believe you did need a copy of Windows to use WINE years ago, but it's completely self-contained and devoid of Microsoft-owned code these days.

Imagine a World where people just owned superior products instead of emulating them with inferior products... :)
