Under Construction!

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.
Spiritus Gladius

Thanks to everyone who has written me during the past few weeks expressing appreciation for my character generators. I am happy that I can now bring most of them back online.

I've been granted specific permission by WoTC to publish and distribute this generator. However, I've been asked to limit my "Fifth Edition" character generator to the content of the free online D&D Basic Rules. I have implemented this by disabling options that are available only in other publications. The Player's Companion (PC_EE) is also free content that supplements the basic rules, and I have enabled the races described there (deep gnomes, aarakocra, genasi, goliaths). I thought this was the right choice for everyone, as people can see everything that the "Player's Handbook" offers and will want to get a copy. "UA" is "Unearthed Arcana", also available online from Wizards.

Please write me if you have any comments or questions.

Special thanks to Stephen McArthur, Esq. and to the people at WoTC to whom we all owe so much.

I am very impressed with the new edition and hope you will purchase it. Playtest ideas and a few languages from previous editions that were not present in the published version but that players might wish to keep are in small type.

This little program is my gift to my fellow-gamers, and my way of saying "thank you" to the hobby's developers. Over a quarter-century, I have enjoyed a cordial relationship with people at TSR/WOTC. In return, I'm glad to help make the process of character creation easier for everyone. Happy adventuring!

This big javascript program runs best on "Netscape" browsers. It runs slowly on "Chrome" and I have had a report of it failing. It works on some versions of "Opera" and "Safari"; if someone can tell me what I need to do to make the code more compatible with these browsers, I would be most grateful. For now, it does not work on iPad Air.

Please accept my apologies if this large program fails to load on your computer.

The "Kender" and "Warforged" were races from playtesting that I have kept for now. The monster races are my conceptions of how these might be developed.

Some folks have asked about character aging. At present, I don't know how to implement this. Sorry.

WARNING: Using the "Go Back" feature can make the program lock. I'm debugging this now.
