    Creature Advancement

    Anyone thought about making a tool for the basic d20 rules that allow you to automatically create advanced monsters ?

    IE I drag a lvl 1 orc from the monster manual into the personalities list.
    Then i open the character from the personalites list and increase from 1 HD to 5 HD and then its automatically updated according to advancements rules by type...

    It would be really handy for GM's who prepare new sessions...

    I love to send a kobold on my party and as they boldy attack to crush this insignifficantn foe they discover that he is no ordinary kobold, but a mean X HD fighter kobold instead

    I use DM Genie to advance the bad guys and then just change the FG entries to match.

    Ok found it, and downloaded demo version, but i cannot see any export FG2 functionality ?

    Is it not available in demo perhaps or is it just me who havent found it ?

    I have it but haven't used it in a LONG time. There is some way to change the output into different formats. I think it is along the bottom somewhere.

    (Fires up NPC Designer...)

    Its under Statblock Format. Change it to FG2 and the statblock will be useable in FG2. I think you have to copy and paste it from there to the FG2 db file though.
