one-shot [Oct. 16th, 2007|01:49 am]
Beemer
I would tell you all about my exciting life, but Thomas roped me into helping with a one-shot D&D adventure for Josh while he's visiting, so I've been busy with that. (Actually, that's most of the excitement in my weekend. Other fun: Gin & Coffee Saturday evening, Visitor Q for movie night (disturbing, but less so and more interesting than I expected), and packages from CT from my Mom. And lots of cold, autumnal rain.)

I'm having fun, and I think it'll be a good game next Sunday. I'm happy to have figured out what the right tool is for making character sheets on my computer: MS Publisher, which is all about putting little boxes of text on a page. I sorta wish it was a little less task-focused (no, I don't want a template, I just want to put text in boxes on a page), but it's a pretty pliable program in most ways. Certainly enough that I've stayed up far too late fiddling with it.

Are you guys doing pre-generated characters?

Yup. (We'd never get done in one play session otherwise.)

Character generation is at least two play sessions worth of time :-)

I'm currently building a character sheet in Excel, so it can do the calculations for me.

I have done the same! Last time we gamed I got it to update everything when I toggle various abilities on and off.
