Hi all, I've had a couple of questions now about whether the sheet will be updated with new classes.

I'm afraid the answer is no. I no longer play Fantasy Craft and it seems unlikely I'll ever go back to it. If there's anyone out there who's good with Excel and feels they'd like to take it over, I'd be happy to pass it on and provide the necessary passwords to allow editing. I'm afraid I don't have any technical documentation to go with it though.

Anybody who understands Excel's condition checks, conditional formatting, table lookups and database functions as well as cell formatting and protection should be able to get along with it OK. I'd also be happy to provide limited email support.

If you have good Excel skills and feel you'd like to take this on, send me a PM. My ideal would be to hand it over to the Crafty guys, but I suspect they have enough work on their plates and wouldn't want to add this.

I searched the forums and did not find any reference to this.

Is Surge of Speed usable in the Surprise Round?

Or Quick Draw, for that matter?  (although this will not allow you to move up and attack, just move and ready, or ready weapon + shield)

I would say they are usable but useless because they just convert half actions (handle item for QD, Move for SoS) to free actions and in a surprise round you may only take one action of any type - whether it be free/half/full.

1 per level, even Level 1, so not.

Ah, been doing that wrong then. The Excel character sheet in the downloads section is also wrong - I'll try to get a new version sorted...

I really hope everything works out for you guys - This thing deserves to be published. FC is already the best d20 fantasy system out there but this would make it something very special indeed.

I did some proofreading for this one, and it's good to see it published at last. It's a nice little adventure.  Smiley

Hi Josh, glad you're finding the sheet useful. I have a few sheets I've developed for various systems including MGT and Pathfinder. I'll see about finding somewhere to put them and I'll post a link. Be aware though - None of them are as well developed as the FC sheet. Very rough & ready and not intended for public consumption!

I haven't tried this (I don't have excel and things could go screwey), but maybe print to PDF and upload that?  If you don't need to update it mid session you can just replace the PDF with an updated one each time you meet?

That's the way to do it. Whenever I update a character for a live campaign, I print as PDF and download to my phone so I have a copy 'just in case'.

It's in the errata document:

Signature Skills (page 228): As noted in the natural spell quality (see page 234), the Casting Level of an NPC with the Spellcasting Signature Skill is equal to the NPC’s Threat Level.

If you mean Type as in Folk, Outsider etc. then my suggestion is to use the 'Substitute Species Names' table on Sheet 1 Origin. For instance, if you have a human of the Outsider type, change the 'Human' entry to 'Human [Outsider]'.

As far as the natural attack is concerned, for now just enter it as a 1 or 2 handed weapon. It has no mechanical effect. I will add this to the change list for the next release though.

Leisure Games in the UK have it in stock. They charge 20% shipping to Europe (outside of the UK):

It's where I got my copy.

I think Doomed is giving an example of what would happen if a target was hit for 20 fresh acid damage over several rounds - And the maths seems correct according to the RAW.

Round 1: 20 damage
Round 2: Another 20 damage from a fresh hit + half of Round 1's damage = 30 damage
Round 3: Another 20 damage from a new hit + 10 + 5 = 35 damage

That's a lot of damage over 3 rounds, but whether it's too much I'm not sure...

Well, that was an easy change after all. The new version (1.10) has been sent to Pat to go onto the downloads page.

I wouldn't be without mine, it's by far the most used tool in the RPG box after the dice.

Antilles has kindly given me a reminder that the new classes need to be added to the character sheet. I'll get onto it as soon as possible and try to get a new version to Pat by the end of the week at the latest.

Great work! The Crusader is particularly welcome, I just wish I'd had it about 6 weeks ago...  Smiley
