Finally! I’m working on updating my Dungeons & Dragons 5th edition point-buy calculator! Yay! But “Dungeons & Dragons 5th edition point-buy calculator” is quite the mouthful. Maybe I should come up with a shorter, snazzier name for it in the future….
Anyway, I digress. Here is a screenshot of the updated point-buy calculator in action and below that is a list of the changes. (So exciting, I know.)
Here is a basic list of the changes:
- Information for Dragonborn has now been added. (I am so sorry for not realising I left them unfinished before!)
- Has its own page outside of the main Shianra site.
- Design looks more in line with official D&D 5e products.
What’s next for this point-buy calculator
- Adding information for more races and their variants — Aasimar, Eladrin, Changeling, Shifter, Warforged, Aarakocra, Genasi, Goliath, Minotaur, and Revenant.
- The option to give a name and gender to characters.
- A print-friendly version which includes the aforementioned name and gender of a character.
- The saving and loading of characters. Ideally, I would like to accomplish this without requiring one to login to view and edit their characters.
