About This File

DON'T DOWNLOAD THE FILE HERE. THIS VERSION HAS BECOME CORRUPT. I'M PLACING A DROPBOX LINK FOR A GOOD VERSION OF THE FILE HERE.

What's that dragon guarding?

This is a treasure generator for use with BRP fantasy settings, like Magic World.

The generator will prompt you for a treasure type, which BRP critters don't have listed in their details/descriptions, so I advise using a third party "manual of monsters" to cross reference the treasure type there for individual creatures. I personally like AD&D recommended treasure types.

You will also need the small,FREE NBOS program "Inspiration Pad" to use this table which can be found here:

http://www.nbos.com/products/ipad/ipad.htm

(I know it says Ipad but there's a windows and even android link.)

YOU NO LONGER NEED TO CHANGE THE FILE TYPE IF YOU USE THE ABOVE DROPBOX LINK

PLACE THE "BRP_Fantasy_treasure.DOC" file in the C:\Users\Documents\Inspiration Pad Pro\Generators DIRECTORY AND RENAME IT TO "BRP_Fantasy_treasure.ipt"

 

This table will allow the Chronicler to generate treasure types A-Z, as well as individual items such as Magic Weapons, Miscellaneous Items, Rings, Wands, Staves, Rods, Armor and Armor Pieces, Shields, Cursed Items, Mundane Items, Jewelry, Gems, Potions, Scrolls, and Spell Books (using Classic Fantasy and Magic World spells) as well as the suggested value in Bronze Pieces for each item.

 

I placed ALL this information in one table so as to keep it as simple as possible.

Can't say the tables are easy to edit if you're not familiar with NBOS, however, after a little tinkering it's pretty easy to add new items or descriptions to any category. I've run through hundreds of tests with each category and it all seems to work well but if you ARE familiar with NBOS please don't grief me too hard on the table set up. I know it's not very clean. :)

Hey Chris,

(A day late and a dollar short commenting on this file, but here goes)

I've got a tiny bit of experience with Inspiration Pad, but I'm definitely no expert. I was wondering if you also get errors with the generated scrolls and spellbooks? If you look in the console, this is the typical error generated: "Missing Table: nscrollspells." (where n is a random number) I've tried messing around with some variable names in tables further in the file, but no luck getting things to work.

Also if you really are wanting to redo it, I'm thinking that the treasure amounts generated seem pretty astoundingly high. I'm sort of assuming you got the values from page 264 of Mythras: Classic Fantasy. I edited them down to reflect book prices in my personal version, but if you want an "official" version up here it might be helpful for people who aren't comfortable editing NBOS .ipt files/code.

Thanks for doing the work you did, it's huge undertaking writing up that much code and it makes a nice base to edit from.

Cheers

I use an extended version of the RQ2 Treasure Generator, but with RQ3-style enchantments, different types of scrolls and so on. It produces a Plunder-style set of items, or at least it did when I last used it. However, it's written in Progress and I could well have lost the code.

NBOS has a funny way of messing itself up. I cant say I've had any trouble with my copy but it may be updated. I'll take a look in a bit and fix if needed. Thanks for heads up

@tooley1chris Thanks for the reply, and it's no big hurry. As I said I've mostly hacked the thing to bits at this point to make it fit my upcoming campaign, but after some more tinkering I did manage to get scrolls to populate, but it just doesn't seem to work with spellbooks. I'll take another stab at it this weekend.

@tooley1chris Just a quick question/suggestion: Maybe you're already familiar with it, but have you ever tried Notepad++? If you do any amount of serious coding, it's a very handy plain text editor that recognizes dozens of coding languages. I've used it for writing javascript in the past and it's a real life saver. There's also tons of plugins

EDIT: Just tested it and things seem to be working fine. Thanks for uploading that.
