Thread: SW NPC Maker

  1. #181
    Yeah, that's definitely a feature. I've often used something like Hero Lab or savaged.us to create a PC, copy the statblock, paste it in with NPC maker and then convert it to a PC direct. I usually have to do a bit of cleanup, but it's a lot easier than doing it all by hand! One of my favorite things about this extension.

    Note that it works both ways and you can drag a PC character sheet to NPCs and it will create an NPC version for you.

    Improved Trademark Weapon
    Mighty Blow

    I get the error message:
    WARNING, Cannot convert! Your input source is malformed: No valid Attributes.

    I am creating NPCs while I am traveling in a Note Keeping app and would like to add them to FG using NPC Maker. What kind of template could I use for that so that it is working?

    I think it's because you have no dice in those skills (such as Occult).

    Try it in this format:

    Caveman
    Attributes: Agility d8, Smarts d6, Spirit d6, Strength d8,
    Vigor d6
    Skills: Climbing d6, Fighting d6, Lockpicking d6, Notice
    d6, Stealth d8, Survival d8, Throwing d6.
    Pace: 6; Parry: 5; Toughness: 5
    Gear: Club (Str+d6), throwing stones (Str+d4, Range:
    3/6/12).
    Special abilities:
    Low Light Vision: The Caveman ignore the Dark and
    Dim Light modifiers.

    I just edited my post, apparently we were typing at the same time... Try the format I just posted...

    Thank you I found my mistake... I wrote Smart instead of Smarts and Strenght instead of Strength....damn thought I am better in english xD

    If someone else needs a template:

    Everything inside quotation marks needs to be deleted together with the quotation marks. They just show what could be written there. Every X needs to be filled. Skills that have no number after the d will be ignored. This seems to work so far


    "Name"

    Parry: X
    Pace: X
    Toughness: X(X)

    Attributes: Agility dX, Smarts dX, Spirit dX, Strength dX, Vigor dX

    Skills: Academics d, Athletics d, Battle d, Boating d, Common Knowledge d, Driving d, Electronics d, Faith d, Fighting d, Focus d, Gambling d, Hacking d, Healing d, Insight d, Intimidation d, Language d, Notice d, Occult d, Performance d, Persuasion d, Piloting d, Repair d, Research d, Riding d, Science d, Shooting d, Spellcasting d, Stealth d, Survival d, Taunt d, Thievery d, Weird Science d

    Hindrances:
    "Hindrances divided with commas for example: Ugly, Vow, Wanted"
    Edges:
    "Edge Names divided with commas for example: Elan, Marksman"
    Gear: "Gears divided with commas and in brackets () damage for example: Sword (Str + d6), Bow (2d6, Range: 10/20/40)"
    Powers:
    "Powers divided with commas for example: Bolt, Confusion"

    Try this. It's just a matter of getting the formatting pretty much the way Pinnacle lays them out. I also just now learned that the Special Abilities need some fluff text or NPC Maker ignores them.

    Code:
    Batu ist der untote Depositua
    
    Attributes:
    Agility d6, Smarts d6, Spirit d6 (+2), Strength d12, Vigor d12
    Skills: Athletics d4, Fighting d12 (+2), Intimidation d8, Notice d8 (-1), Riding d6
    Toughness: 14(4), Pace: 5, Parry: 13(5)
    Edges: Improved Trademark Weapon, Mighty Blow
    Equipment: Plate [Armor +4], Shield [Cover -4, Parry +3], Great Sword (d12+d8)
    Special Abilities:
    Undead: +2 Toughness; +2 to recover from being Shaken; No additional damage from called shots; Immune to poison and disease. No wound penalties.
    I threw a couple effects [keywords] on the gear for examples, but because this is an NPC, they may actually throw off the math (which is usually already done for NPCs) so remove them if it does.
