    Character Converter for D&D Beyond

    The PDF scraping has been replaced with a more robust data parser.

    Now I'm parsing character JSON data. Unfortunately, I can't log in as each user, so you'll have to copy/paste the JSON data.

    I think this version is much more robust, and even surpasses my Hero Lab plugin.

    Spells are parse, as are inventory and weapons.

    Please let me know what looks wonky, what can be fixed.

    And... convert it to an FG character? Will it have links to the FG source books if you have them?

    Yes, it creates an xml file that can be imported into Fantasy Grounds.

    It does not yet link to any rule-books, but I'm hoping to incorporate that in the future.

    Are you still working on this?

    @st4lk3r87,

    It's stagnant (but workable) at the moment. I'm waiting for D&D Beyond to release an API, which supposedly is in process.

    Hope that up on DnD Beyond was what you needed. This would be a very nice addition.

    Yes, a good converter from D&D Beyond to Fantasy Grounds will save lot of work. Unfortunately Fantasy Grounds alone doesn't have the same efficiency with 5e character creation ( still better than pen and paper imo ).

    It's a big ol' fail right now, but I'm working on an update, hope to get it up and operational this weekend.

    Thank you. More convenient for my players to use dnd beyond since it is up 24/7.
