If a wizard or elf had an Intelligence score of 3, so they could not cast spells, would they also not have a Spell Check stat?

A 3 INT opens some doors for the Judge and player to interpret and play the "no spellcasting possible" line as they see fit. Maybe one day the character will get an INT bump and the wizarding door opens back up!

But yeah, for the sake of raw number crunching and completeness - the spell check value for INT 3 would be whatever the current level is minus 3.

Piled on top of that is stuff like armor check penalties as well as the potential effect a birth augur roll of 13 may have.

Hi All,

In an effort to teach myself a couple new coding languages I built a DCC character generator. This one has character permanence (saves to a database!) and exports as a PDF to the appropriate DCC character sheet. You can also edit all stats and equipment, updating characters as needed.

It should work as well on desktop as mobile and is great for generating a bunch of NPCs or beloved heroes and having them as near as your phone when needed.

The design is very 'in-flux' as I'm proof-of-concepting some things for fun. It's going to get a total design revamp soon (but the databases shouldn't be touched).

Check it out if you like: http://52.2.172.251/

Ye old DCC character generator is back online now that I have the latest DCC rulebook and can double check stuff.

And... now that I've got it running on Amazon's EC2 service which is free over Google's Compute service.

Hurray!

Hi all,

Just a quick update for everyone that has been using it, I put a permanent domain name on my character creator app as the IP would change every time Amazon EC2 service had to be restarted.

Please go here from now on to use the tool: http://dcc.horsegoeswest.com

And thanks to all that have been using it and providing feedback. I guess I need to get ready for the MCC version!

+Chris Gohlinghorst, Have you considered adding an elastic IP to your EC2 instance? That would allow you add a domain and it's cheap.
