PC Chargen Aids?
Does anyone know if there are any character generation aids available on the PC (even spreadsheets) for BRP or the other d100 games? I know that there's a Hero Lab module for CoC but that appears to be it as far as official material, and plans for an MRQ HL template never materialized.
That said, fans are notorious for putting together anything and everything in terms of play aids. So maybe there are things out there.
I use one based on a database app (Filemaker Pro) for MRQII that delivers what I need for Legend. I think the author originally posted on the MGP forums but it's been a long time. The file is name Runequest 2 PC ver 1.0 and there are an NPC generator and a multiple NPC generator. Don't know where you'd find it now though.
There's a BRP one in the downloads section here that does BGB character gen done by a German guy/guys.
Generally BRP/D100 character generation varies enough game by game that one app doesn't fit all. But on the other hand D100 character generation is so simple that it hardly needs computer assistance. As long as you can count up or down every time you put points into a skill, even using pencil and paper, you are gold. There aren't any weird feats or must have choices to make just allocating points to skills. True some skills are more important in a setting or game than others but you soon learn that, or the GM can tell you that, Dodge/Evade is a good choice to boost as well as the skill that boosts defence against magic.
I've mucked around with this kind of thing in Excel for RQ3 and Call of Cthulhu, which I've just uploaded here...
It's very simple though.
My RQ3 'Foes Too' excel sheet is pushing 3mb and includes 50 plus pages of critters, but was never created with the intention to pass it on (means its rather messy, open to modification and primarily for creating NPCs). If you want to see it, if you're interested, let me know.
