      Upcoming Changes to the Fantasy Flight Games Forums   01/20/2017

      Hello Fantasy Flight Games forum community!   This week, we will be making some important changes to your Fantasy Flight Games community account and the way that you log into the Fantasy Flight Games community forums and web store.   We have been working hard to integrate with the rest of the Asmodee group, and we are happy to announce a unified way to access all the websites and apps made by Fantasy Flight Games, Days of Wonder, and Asmodee!   For most users, nothing will change: you will still log into the Fantasy Flight Games forums using your current login name and password. Only the login user interface will be new.   For a few users, your credentials might be slightly changed. For example, this could happen to users who have both a Fantasy Flight Games and Days of Wonder account, or in the case of conflicting login names across platforms. When these situations occur, special e-mails will be sent to those users with an easy explanation about those changes and what steps to take next. For any of you receiving those e-mails, please make sure to follow the instructions carefully.   Remember, official communications from Fantasy Flight Games or Asmodee.Net will never ask for your password.   What are the benefits for you as a player? Using a unified account to access all of our web services and apps makes your life simpler. Over time, you will see new features emerging, such as keeping all of your friends under a single account, finding friends easily in apps with online play, or developing your personal profile by adding to your board games collection. These are just some of the features that you will see during the next year, once this important technical step is complete.   Important note: The migration of the forums to our new system will take place on Tuesday, January 24th. The forums will be offline for about two hours during that time. Once the migration is complete, older forum posts may look strange for up to 24 hours as we rebuild them in our new system.   We can’t wait to connect our board game communities and build bridges between universes, game systems, players, events, groups, game clubs, and more! This is only the first step in bringing people and games closer together. For more information, read our FAQ at https://asmodee.helpshift.com/a/asmodee-net/.   Best regards,   The Fantasy Flight Games Team

All of the characteristic possibilities (check my work?)

6 posts in this topic

There only appear to be 25 mathematical combinations to create human characteristics (if player arranges to their own taste).

 

See characteristics tab:  https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/167876/WFRP%20STUFF/WFRP3%20Random%20Character%20Generator%201.3xlsx.xlsx

 

 

I'm doing this to create a random character generator. It's messy right now.  Steve of the Red Fez already started much of the work on this subject. Feedback is welcome for any combos you come up with that I missed.

 

Its a work in progress otherwise so I'll post when the version 2.0 is out :)

Shouldn't there be many more? Depending on how many creation points do you want to spend?

No, the number sets for characteristics are quite limited:  13-25 points.  When I first did the sets, I realized I had repeated the number sets, but in different orders.  

 

There 16 possible combinations for WSTA scores (but up to only 12 points used), and this, and all other factors create additional variables to characters (human race, career, which actions/talents/skills taken, etc.)

 

This theoretically should make character generation a LOT easier though (in EITHER order):

* Pick a characteristic set

* spend your WSTA points

 

[There are only 1 or 2 sets which were dependent upon position of primary or secondary characteristics, and they seem to fall in the 25 point category]

 

 

Now that these are available, a true random character generator is possible without all the extended math. (Sadly, this is beyond my capabilities as a non-programmer)

Just another option on this chart:

 

Take 4 d4's and roll them to determine your WSTA scores randomly

Total them up and see how many options you have for characteristics

Roll randomly for characterstic set.

Assign to taste

 

Theoretically, you could roll random talents and random actions as well and probably come up with some pretty interesting character ideas.

 

 

Note, I didn't do the non-humans, as their combinations will take a moment for me to wrap my head around.

 

They essentially are calculated with 26 27 or 28 points compared to humans.  This is because they raise zero, one or both of their career skills from 3 to 4, depending on how they line up.
