Anyone know of a video or other tutorial on method and best practices for character creation in FGU for DCC? Thanks.

I’m not aware of any. We need something like that though - volunteers?

I think there are a few steps missing but here's what I have:

Making a Dungeon Crawl Classics character
___Step 1 0-Level Character___
- Option 1 - the funnel character

in the chat field, type `/funnel` and press enter

creates a ready 0-level character

The usage for `/funnel` is '/funnel <# of 0-level characters to create> <owner's username>

@leozelig provided these examples:


...specify a number of characters, with a max of 24(?), and an owner.

if you type /help in chat, the funnel command and its optional parameters are listed.

Create 4 PCs with no owner:
/funnel 4

Create 2 PCs and assign to thornlord (username is case-sensitive):
/funnel 2 thornlord

---
- Option 2 - one step at a time
click the characters button
click the green (+) button on the bottom right.
on the character sheet, click the red (/) button to unlock the roll attributes button
click the blue (*) button to have Fantasy Grounds Unity roll the 3d6 scores and apply to the sheet
click Modules > 'DCC RPG' > Tables > Table 1-2: Luck Score
click Tables, search for Language, click 'Languages, 0-Level Human'
click Tables, search for occupation, click 'Table 1-3: Occupation'
o click and drag the results from the chat window to the character sheet
All 0-level characters start with the following items:
o 1d4 hit points, modified by STA
o +0 save bonuses
o 5d12 copper pieces
o 0 experience points
o 1 random piece of equipment (roll on table 3-4)
o 1 random occupation
- one weapon and training in its use
- trade goods

---

___Step 2 XP to Level 1___
o 10 XP brings a character to 1st level
o choose a class that fits the character's ability scores
o click the Character > Classes button
o on the character sheet, click the 'Class & Level' field
o on the XP field, increase the value from 0 to 10
o click & drag the class from the Classes window onto the character's 'Class' field

Thank you, thornlord!

I will add that the /funnel command also allows you to specify an owner and a number of characters up to 24 max.

Create 4 PCs with no owner:
/funnel 4

Create 2 PCs and assign to thornlord (username is case-sensitive):
/funnel thornlord 2

Thank you guys, this is great information. I wrote to DCC suggesting they should work with FG to develop tutorial videos as well...we'll see. Thanks again!!

Oh! I'd forgot you can do this!

Just a heads up, if you type /help in chat, the funnel command and its optional parameters are listed. I can never remember the sequence for username and #chars, but the list of slash commands will tell you.

When I try /funnel 4 I get 4 characters, but if I try /funnel 4 Alex or /funnel 4 GM, I get only one, and its owner isn't assigned. Does it matter that there's no player logged in named Alex, and is that the reason it failed to make 4?

Try /funnel Alex 4 or /funnel GM 4. I think I mixed up the order in my posts above. If you type /help in chat, it will show you the correct order for parameters, which I believe is

/funnel <username> <#>

I can’t keep that straight for some reason. It does try to match the username to an active user, so if it still doesn’t work, then that’s why :)
