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!
Please accept my apologies if this large page fails to load on your machine.
So far, this usually seems to work okay on Netscape, but is slower on Explorer. It takes some time to get started, during which the browser may seem to be locked.
You can save your character sheet to disk just like any other .htm document. Many people have found that saving them as Word documents works well. For some browsers, the best way to save the character sheet is to select "print" and save in .pdf format.
The classic "Ravenloft" milieu simulated gothic horror. Campaigns focus on resisting the glamour of evil. Much of the rules system depicts the deterioration of characters who made bad moral choices, even for short-term gain. At the same time, there is no magical means to determine who has already surrendered to the lure of hate, greed, or depravity.
I found the setting to be both profoundly moral and true to my own experience.
The Sword and Sorcery company has taken over the campaign and updated it. The link now seems to be down. I have not yet added all the feats from the supplemental books ("Heroes of Light", "Champions of Darkness", "Von Richten's Arsenal"). I assumed each demihumans' original language is a domain language, and they lean their racial languages if they wish.
I followed the "virtue" options as best I understood them. If you choose "innocent", "blessed", or "moral" but are not good-aligned, you will be marked "penitent". If you are good-aligned but choose "unclean" or "corrupted", you will be marked "penitent". If you are neither good nor evil and choose "corrupted", you will be marked "unclean".
The rest of the generator is adapted from my D&D 3.5 page.
You are more than welcome to download these generators to your own computers and share them with your friends. Simply use your browser's "File -- Save" function to your hard disk. If you modify them, please give credit to me as original programmer, and do not make an evil-oriented generator. Of course, I am grateful to TSR/WOTC, who developed and own the game system and graciously allow others to work with it. This page, which will be continually under construction, is intended to help people begin enjoying adventure gaming.

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.
