View Full Version : Easiest Way of Duplicating Trait Descriptions

Howdy, all.

So, I'm creating four pre-gen characters for an upcoming Old West game (in GCA, then importing into FG). I've got the first one completely finished, and he has maybe 20-25 skills. Let's say I take the time to copy and paste the skill descriptions for each of those into his FG sheet.

Now, the other three characters will have a lot of the same skills, overlap -- Survival (Desert), Riding (Horse), that sort of thing. What is the easiest way (if any) to duplicate all that work without having to re-copy and re-paste 20+ skills for multiple characters?

Thanks!

Drag and drop from the one char to the others?

Or export the character and re-import and rename.

Edit the campaign data XML and actually copy the characters, or just the skills

Thanks for the replies, all... I think export/import probably be easiest. Ultimately, I would love to build up a base character that has, literally, every skill (or at least all of the ones I use most frequently) with descriptions in place so I can just drag and drop what I need.

FYI, skill dragging is on the todo list for the ruleset.

You might see that ronnke has indicted drag and drop traits and skills are in his to-do-wish-list:

You could always add your thoughts to that thread and drop him some rep points while you are at it :)

EDIT: Damnit! ronnke pretty much replied the same while I was out testing the ruleset!

I am not able to fire up FG atm to check, but is this currently do-able?
