Apologies to saiyanslayer, I appear to have hijacked your thread.

Rootwalker I've been through the errata for the first printing and made all the appropriate changes to the templates. One note, Saurian is now a +2 to any attribute. That would require a bigger change and I can do at the moment so I've left it as +2 dex.

At the moment the NPC builder doesn't add anything from Type other than name and xp. Making it do more than that would also be a bigger change and something I'll try and get to, but no promises.

That change definitely solves all my concerns, thanks Alex.

Thanks for your responses everyone, especially Kadrok for the detailed breakdown of what is possible.

I think Alex's 'only spend 10 Action dice per round'' limits works well for me, though it does rule out keeping dice in reserve as Outis says. As Alex said, dice not allocated as Action dice automatically become Defense dice.

So I was searching for thoughts on Feruchemy and found the very useful thread

In reading this something occurred to me and I wanted to see what everyone thought.

Let's say a keeper is rolling a check, so taps a few points to bring the pool up to 10 dice, and taps another 15 for a guaranteed 3 nudges.

The 3 nudges get used to catch a beat. But the keeper has no dice left... so can't they just tap another 10 for a pool of 10, plus 15 for another guaranteed 3 nudges. And repeat until there is nothing left to do, or no more charges in the tank.

So, other than being a good way to burn through a metalmind very quickly, have I missed something that says this can't be done?

Hi bits. message me an example NPC that has this problem and I'll see what I can do.

No pressure intended, but do you plan to add the new Call to Arms classes to it?
Thanks for reminding me. Class abilities from Shinobi, Skirmisher and Witch Hunter have now been added to the 'class ability' quality.

Hey Saiyanslayer, welcome to the NPC builder party Cheesy I don't have any computers running Windows so sadly I can't try your tool out, but I wish you all the best with it. I haven't had any where near as much time to work on the Web NPC Builder it as I used to, so I'm glad someone else is giving it a bash. I'm not in a *Craft game at the moment, so I'm not even using it myself.

You're welcome to contribute to the web NPC builder if you'd like. It's not written in C# though, Java and the Google Web Toolkit.

Takeru what are the auto-calculation bugs you mention? When I next brush the dust off the code it'll be good to know what needs improving.

save the webpage on your hd Smiley
It can be used offline then?
Should be able to yes. But may only work in the same browser it was saved from due to dynamically chosen javascript craziness.

I keep planning to make a downloadable version, but always get caught up in trying to automate it. I'm doing NaNoWriMo at the moment, so won't have any free time in November. Resurrect this thread in December and I'll see if I can make a download part of the site.

Doctor Who 50th anniversary schedule announced by BBC

Thought this news item page just lists events, no actual broadcast dates.

I would really like Richard Coyle, but i expect to be surprised on Sunday.

I think the most telling decision will be if they've gone for someone completely new again, like Smith and Tenant were, or an established screen presence.

Thanks guys. Hope you enjoy it Wolverine.

And of course. I here-by reserve the RPG license of anything I ever write for Crafty, should they want it.

My novel, the one what I wrote, but with better English than that, is now available on Kindle. So I'm announcing it everywhere I know, hope the crafty guys don't mind. It's fantasy tale with dragons and biplanes. I'm not very good at summarizing it so I've put the cover and blurb below.

What's more it's on offer, free for the next 3 days.
It should also be available in every other amazon region.

"On an isolated island 17 city kingdoms are edging their way into the industrial age. A railway network spans the land and a flying machine is about to make its first reach for the sky. But the old ways still hold sway. The man who brought magic to the land, many centuries ago, is worshiped as a god. Those inheriting his powers rule as kings, chosen and tested by an ancient dragon ritual. While behind the machinery of everyday life ever watchful alchemists pursue their forbidden knowledge.

As Bolan Riften, grandson of the king of Poryth, comes of age, testing for the right of succession may not be as straight forward as everyone expects."

Saw Star Trek Into Darkness last night, thankfully in IMAX, loved it. Awesome fun from start to finish.

I know there's been much speculation about the true nature of Benedict Cumberbatch's character, for those who want to know for certain...

I will get around to producing an easily downloadable form at one point, but it will always be a selection of html images and loads of javascript. Honestly you'll get a more compact version by saving from your browser as you'll only get the version of the javascript you need rather than one for every browser.
