I've noticed that many of those who post their creations have no idea how to setup the BBCode for tables among other things, making it difficult to review their work. So, here is a little guide.

Firstly, this site is amazing for creating tables. (http://www.pifro.com/dnd/)

Example of a table:
Custom
{table=head]Level|Base Attack Bonus|Fort Save|Ref Save|Will Save|Special

1st|
+0|
+0|
+0|
+0|Repeated Special Ability

2nd|
+1|
+0|
+0|
+0|

3rd|
+1|
+1|
+1|
+1|

4th|
+2|
+1|
+1|
+1|

5th|
+2|
+1|
+1|
+1|Repeated Special Ability

6th|
+3|
+2|
+2|
+2|

7th|
+3|

+2|

8th|
+4|
+2|

9th|
+4|
+3|
+3|
+3|Repeated Special Ability

10th|
+5|
+3|
+3|

11th|
+5|
+3|
+3|

12th|
+6/+1|
+4|

13th|
+6/+1|
+4|

14th|
+7/+2|

15th|

Skill Points at 1st Level: (2 + Int modifier) 4.
Skill Points at Each Additional Level: 2 + Int modifier.

[/table]

Alignment: Any
Hit Die: 1d4
Class Skills:
Class Skills
Skill Points at 1st Level: (2 + Int modifier) 4.
Skill Points at Each Additional Level: 2 + Int modifier.

The basic setup of a table is:
{table=head]Label 1|Label 2
stuff|stuff
stuff|stuff
[/table]
{table=head]Label 1|Label 2
stuff|stuff
stuff|stuff
[/table]

More neat BBCode:
To show BBCode with trying to put it in to some other medium just use:BBCode


centered Obviously centers your text like this:

centered
The same can be done with left and right:
left-aligned
right-aligned

left-aligned
right-aligned
Indent text:
This is indented!

This is indented!

Superscripts and subscripts:Superscript Subscript
Superscript Subscript

Spoiler tags:OMG! Tieflings are a basic race in 4th ed!!
OMG! Tieflings are a basic race in 4th ed!!

Lists:

bullet 1
bullet 2


number 1
number 2


bullet 1
bullet 2


number 1
number 2


Code tags don't ignore whitespace character's like normal:

This doesn't ignore whitespaces !!


This doesn't ignore whitespaces !!
You can also put in html and php codes:

<head>HTML Code!</head>
<body>Stuff</body>

$welcome_text = "Hello World!";
print($welcome_text);

<head>HTML Code!</head>
<body>Stuff</body>

$welcome_text = "Hello World!";
print($welcome_text);

Line Break: Stuff<br>More Stuff on another line
Stuff<br>More Stuff on another line

Horizontal line: <hr>
<hr>
A warning on the horizontal line and line break, if you preview it, it will reset the format to <hr> or <br>, this will not work and you have to change it back to <hr> or <br>

That's all for now, if anyone has requests for some sort of coding, go ahead and ask.

Also, if anyone has absolutely no idea how to make a table for their class or whatever, go ahead and PM me with your content and if I'm available I'll get you your code.

Reserved for requested BBCode.

I was wondering how to get those table heads. Thanks for the tips.

No problem, I just realized I forgot to add the line break and horizontal line. Those are some tricky ones because they like to mess with you by not allowing you to preview or edit them without redoing the format. Who knows why.

Am I missing something or is this the same information available in Fax's Gide to Home Brewing stickied at the top of the Forum?

Probably functionally identical at the very least...
However the helplessness of n00bs is never to be underestimated... giving the current wave a gentle thump on the head to get them to find the instructions never hurts.

Somewhat. He only has the table thing, but honestly, with the number of people posting without tables, who sees that? I knew had to use tables already so I never really looked at it, though I skimmed it to make sure I don't just repeat what he did. I did add the same basic code, but also a link and other useful code Fax didn't include.
