Mythras Character Skill Designer Makes Exploring Character Options and Creating Characters Easier
There is a new tool in early beta at http://tools.notesfrompavis.com/
If you want to design characters relatively quickly Character Skill Designer is there for you to help with the skills part. It (currently) helps to create cultures and careers from the Mythras Core. 
It gives the player quick way to design the skill set. In Mythras RAW there is a set of standard and professional skills available per culture and career. Each culture also has different careers available.
So enter the characteristics (Str, Siz, Con etc…) in the tool 
So for example if your player has dreamed of being a Nomad Diabolist from Northern Wastes CSD lets him pick Nomad as the culture, Diabolist as a profession. After this tool let’s you select the right amount of professional cultural and career skills (which is max 3). 
Next it let’s you see all the skills (including the standard skills that were not available with the culture/profession). The CSD calculates the base percentages for the skills and let’s you sort them by skill% to see how the skills fit players view and where to add cultural or career points. 
The skill template has a note for each skill about whether you can use cultural or career points or whether it is just standard. When you are satisfied with the skill combination you can download that as a CSV file. 
This will be developed further. There might be some bugs in the combinations, feedback welcome

Mythras Character Skill Designer supports now Roll20 and helps select Combat Styles




<a href="http://notesfrompavis.blog/2020/09/17/mythras-character-skill-designer-makes-exploring-character-options-and-creating-characters-easier/">The Mythras Character Skill Designer</a> (CSD) (<a href="http://tools.notesfrompavis.com">Tools.notesfrompavis.com</a> now makes it easy to create Mythras characters skills and export them to Roll20 and Excel.


Mark your character stats on the screen and start selecting the options.
Currently CSD supports the Mythras Core in creating the skills. Select your culture and career from the choices. After that you can select professional skills (3 for culture and 3 for career and 1 hobby skill). This can now be exported to excel or json for further work. From the excel you can copy by hand the skills and values to your normal character sheet wherever that is.
You can select the json export file contents and open roll20 and add a new character with Mythras character sheet and copy paste (=import) the json content there.This will create a character sheet with these skills and with some tweaking you are ready to play.

You can now also check what weapons and combat traits you would like to have from a set of combat styles from various sources. After selecting the primary source - select the area and then select the combat style from available
For example you could select as primary sources Shores of Korantia, Campaigns and Mythras, then select area Campaigns - From there you can select Hammer of the Beast. Which shows as weapons Ball &amp; Chain, Great Hammer and Barbed Javelin with trait Batter Down. Currently only a list of combat style contents is shown, no skill or weapon stats are shown. The names and categorisations might be enhanced in the future and there might be additional combat styles. These combat styles might be used as is or used as inspiration for creating your own.  
The combat styles will currently be copied also to Excel.

Tools.notesfrompavis.com is getting up, second service up. Revamp of UI



Few weeks ago I was hit with a really unexpected bill from my service provider and had to shut down the tools.notesfrompavis.com
Big thanks for the support from the tribe - the support is really appreciated.
I changed service providers after this, the cost per month and year for the service to run is higher but it contains no surprises.
The new hosting provider (I searched many) does not support the tools and frameworks I used to create the tools.notesfrompavis.com and I have had to go back to earlier tools I used. I will need to rewrite the Mythras JSON Tool and Mythras Skill Designer tool.
The present
Second service is now up. It is a tool to help with Roll20 (and other tools) - the Mythras JSON Generator tool. It let GM's search easily for the enemies in Mythras Encounter Generator and then generate a JSON that can be copied to Roll20 as an NPC.
You will also notice that the tool has completely revamped user interface. It also contains links to other tools of use to Mythras GMs.
The future
Next I will work on the remaining tool: Mythras Skill Designer - I expect it to be available around start of year.

Thanks for your support and patience
