    Default d20 Class Table Generator

    I now present to you, the new, improved..
    d20 Class Table Generator

    Monster Table Generator - Nyu? Nyu >^.~<

    (Mostly a tool for homebrewers, but seems more appropriate to post it here since it's also a database of sorts)

    My last one got to a breaking point on the code side of not being able to add something minor that I've been wanting to, also, it looked rather bland, and had a few errors (notably in the spell formula section), so for the last couple days - I've been busy completely rewriting it.

    Some points of information this one has different over the last:
    Can be used by Internet Explorer.
    You can put in extra columns.
    There is no 'add' for prestige classes that add to spellcasting anymore, instead, just use the extra column feature.
    The help page of for how to use the formulas in the special section (and now columns) has been updated,
    Currently, fewer prebuilt classes, I'm still busy changing them to the new format.
    Cleaner code for me, so, I can more easily add new features that people want (as appropriate).

    I'm also planning on adding formatting for use on the wizard's boards as well as html output.
    When this gets most of the stuff the old one has, this will be moving to the older ones location.

    So any, comments, requests, or issues?

    I'm toying around with it. Is there some sort of FAQ to explain what some of those things mean? but yeah, feels pretty good so far.

    The "Special Abilities and Extra Columns inline formula explanation." link explains the special abilities and extra columns special formatting.

    What needs to be explained other than this, more? I could write a FAQ.

    Wel I eventually figured it out by toying with it, some of the things like with the special abilities isn't obvious. Like, I couldn't figure out how not to get my abilities repeated over and over again until I figured out that the "repeat" column is how many lines would be skipped until the ability showed up again.

    Anyhow, I toyed around and managed to create a generic spellcasting PRC. However, the GITP formatting is wierd. Here is how it's coming out as:

    Maybe I'm doing it wrong, but here's the link. http://pifro.com/dnd/NEW/?F=Gcustom&...sting%20arcane

    I can actually get it to format correct *if* I manually press enter between every line.

    I am using Internet Explorer.

    Right, now, as I said, if I manually enter newlines like so... (note: I removes the end slashes so the board won't interpret it)

    [center][b]Custom[b][center]

    Yeah, there;s not much you can do on your end :p This we gotta report as a bug. Hotifx is to...put in extra newlines with the program, sweet

    Now, what do the other options mean? I have no idea what PIFBB is. I assume WIKI is used to format for wikipedia pages. What do I use PIFBB for? And if I wanted to say...post something on the WoTC board, do you have any formatting for that?

    PIFBB is for http://faxcelestis.net/forum/ (or follow the link in my sig).
    It generates the table format I put in that forums, and other forums I own.

    wiki generates for a mediawiki (wikipedia, or more likely, http://wiki.faxcelestis.net/)

    and I'm currently playing around with writing a formatting output for the wizards boards.

    Seems like a cool forum. Too bad it looks like either none of the arena fights/balance testing ever gets finished. either that, or they're done somewhere else and I dunno where. More people needs to go there!

    That's really neat. But for me...that's all it is. A neat little toy to play with.

    I'm sure the homebrew forum would love it though!

    Also, how does one change the class' hit die, alignment, and skills?

    You can't, at least, in the generator.
    The idea was just to provide the layout, changing those will be a simple number tweak after you have copied the code.

    Should I add a section to change this?

    Can we expect to see a monster generator update sometime? Possibly with a button that fills the fields with random values?

    First, thank thank thank you for the Nyu Nyu monster generator thingey, however something to fill in attacks, different types of AC, Speeds, and common special attack and qualities. Oh update the subtypes to because i think there are some new ones. To fill in some special attacks it could be like # of dice, dice type, range if applicable, and DC's. I'm asking for all this stuff, because when i'm filling in stuff i normally get stuck on stuff like this .

    Edit: realized you were the one who made the Nyu nyu website

    Wizard's boards are now supported (GLEEMAX formatting) and html is now supported.
    I'm going to start working on a new monster generator then.

    Given SmileyX's post, the title shall stay Nyu? Nyu >^.~< though.

    Current ideas for it that would be relatively simple for me to implement:

    Random values.
    Base attack die that changes based on size category
    Increase / Decrease of size category. (and calculating stat changes based on it)

    Many of the small values... there's just too many. I really wouldn't be able to implement everything.

    Oh and if you haven't been told already, you're missing a button to change HD on your new custom class generator. It's stuck at a d4 right now. Not a big deal, just a few things I noticed after using it to generate a table just now for a homebrew I'm working on.
