Hello everyone.

After several months of work, I have almost ready the first version of Anima: UNICO, an online character generator for Anima: Beyond Fantasy.

It is based on the Core Exxet iteration of the rules (the most recent). It has a character server/repository.

http://animaunico.helechaloscuro.net/

I still consider this a beta release, but feel free to visit it, try it, and drop me a line if you see something wrong or something you'd like changed biggrin.gif

Some selections were broken by the recent changes (initial weapon, martial art, natural bonuses...). They are fine now.

Very nicely tuned. I like this, I can tell you put a lot of work into it. But I have a question... Is it possible that this will ever make it to an offline standalone program for character creation/archiving. Becuase I do not have access to the internet at all times and I would love to see this implemented in a way that both GMs and players can utilize at ALL times.


People are not failures simply because they try and fail.

Only when they fail and give up have they truely failed.

It already is! You can save the webpage locally and access it offline and it will work (minus, obviousl, the access to the character server).

 

However, in the future I'll provide a downloadable package (that will be the same, anyway).

A nice update: now you can equip weapons, armors and helms and see their stats.

  • Elementalism specialization in summoning
  • Equipped armor now affect your skills
  • Ki Techniques are better shown in the sheet
  • Style modules from master's screen
  • Secondary abilities from Gaia 1
  • Ki techniques from Web Supplement 1
  • From Dominus Exxet: limits, style modules, némesis abilities, ki abilities, advantages
  • The possibility to buy MK and Path levels with DP (as per Arcana Exxet and Domnus Exxet)
  • And just now: random determination of nation of origin, city of origin, gender, name, social class, ethnicity, description and knwon languagues. Say goodbay to all those Donobans

You don't "need" the Gift for the Magic advantages. Like for if you are playing a Summoner. The Gift is not needed, but Magic Recovery and such would be useful.

Actually, you need it. That's why in Arcana Exxet there's a "lesser gift" advantage, more useful for summoners. You can't buy a magic advantage without the gift, you can't buy a psychic advantage without access to psychic powers.

Back from holidays with some Easter gifts for Anima: UNICO.

  • Initial Funds, Social Class and Cultural Roots integrated with the origins from Gaïa 1.
  • Dominus Exxet: Blood Legacies, Ars Magnus and Martial Arts.
  • Arcana Exxet: Advantages, specialization in Invocations, and now you can raise Zeonic Regeneration without raising Magic Accumulation.
  • Prometheum Exxet: The Use Affinity Advantage and the three secondary abilities: Runes, Animism and Alchemy.

Next in my list, the races from TWWAU. LAter, or metamagic spheres or the update of ki effects and techniques from Dominus Exxet.

Enjoy!

Quick (but big for me) update: Ki techniques rules have been updated to match those in Dominus Exxet.

Awesome stuff, William! Thank you!

 

You've helped me find and fix three errors in my current character.

 

I eagerly await metamagic sphere and sub-paths. (Sorry if that sounded pushy. Just expressing a preference.)

They are coming. Initially I planned to to the books sequentially, but I decided it is better to implement features in importance order. So new spell paths and metamagic are coming soon. First, a little fix in equipment (to allow adding money or getting equipment free, specially after character creation), and then I'll start with Arcana Exxet.

William,

 

Can I ask what OS & browser you've been using the save function with? I haven't had any luck so far saving characters to my hard drive.

William,

My main browser is chrome, under windows. What seems to be the problem when saving?
