The GM version of Character tool contains more functionality than the Player version.
At the bottom , selecting the “Age character one year” button will add one years of experience to the character, adding skill ML as well as opening new skills according to the rules. The birthdate of the character will be pushed back one year. Finally, selecting the “Create empty major character” button will create a new character but without randomizing.
The section is split into six different views which are described below.
1. List of major characters A list of characters are shown, as filtered by the selected group. Each row shows an individual characters name, species, occupation, attributes and basic combat information. If a character is locked (see Character details below), then this is reflected with the tag [Locked] and the Character Information column shown in red.
In addition, there are five more indicators to the left of the Character Information column - one or more dots shows if the character is has steeds [H], is a Shek Pvar [S] and/or is a Priest [P]. An “!” signifies that the character has a followup, and a cross that the character is dead.
Clicking on a line will show the Character details for the selected character. Clicking on the deletion button in the leftmost column will delete a character.
2. Quests and followups For each character it is possible to add a Quest or Followup - this list shows ALL quests and followups. To add an entry, enter information at the bottom of the window and for which character the entry is intended for. Then select the “Add GM followup” button. After the entry has been added, it is possible to edit or delete the entry in the list of followups.
3. Character overview This tab provides a quick overview of a selected character. The attributes, skills, weapons and armour are summarized.
4. Character details This tab provides a detailed view of the characters Birth/Family, Medical, Psyche, Appearance etc. All the information is editable. Some of the entries may be randomized by selecting the Dice icon ( ) after the entry field. Changing an attribute will immediately impact the skills depending on that attribute.
The section Character properties shows character properties, including an unique character identifier in the upper right corner of this section.
5. Friends, Foes and Followers (FFF) This tab allows the user to enter information that supports the FFF format.
6. Gamemaster notes This tab allows for entry of GM notes, dated Journal entries and Character Quests and followups for the character. Please note that the Character Quests and followups lists the current characters entries, not all of them.
