Hello, Pathfinders! This is my first post here, so hopefully I picked the right spot for it. At any rate, I would like to share with you all a little program I made that implements the race creation rules from the Advanced Race Guide. It lets you build a race using the traits found in the ARG, and then it will generate a rulebook-style entry that you can copy/paste elsewhere.

You can find out more information and download it here.


that's nifty i will check it out when i get home

I love it. Here are my thoughts.

Pros

1. Very easy to use, and pretty much self-explanatory.

2. The data files are in XML, which make it relatively easy to add your own custom traits, feats, etc. Perhaps a short tutorial is in order for those who have never messed with such files (although Notepad does absolutely fine).

Cons

1. There is a bug where it crashes sometimes when you remove a trait from the selection. It still asks you if you want to save the race entry, so it isn't too much of a hassle.

2. You need to exit and reopen the program to create or edit another race. A simple File menu at the top would be helpful, with the option to create a new race or open an existing race.

In all, great program.


Thank you!


Thank you for the feedback, Warhawk. In response to some of your points:

Pro 2: I did the files in XML mainly for my own convenience for keeping them updated. A how-to guide for customizing them is something I'd like to get around to someday.

Con 1: Very strange that it is still asking you to save. Do you get any sort of message when the crash occurs? Have you seen any pattern in what type of trait can cause this (with settings or not, valid settings or not, and so on)?

Con 2: There is a File menu, but it is currently called Actions, because I originally had different plans for how the program would manage races. It will be renamed to File in the next update. If you're not even seeing the Actions menu, then - coupled with Con 1 - that sounds like something may be going haywire with your specific setup.


dot


looks like the breath weapon feature cause the program to crash if you pick it more then once. Then try to look at race entry. Also it does not let you pick the elemental type for breath weapon like all the other elemental stuff in the program. So far I Like it


It appears the Breath Weapon trait was abandoned in the woods while all the other traits were raised by loving parents. Best to leave him alone until I find him a foster family.


New Update!

  • Added a filter to the race selection popup to only see Paizo or custom races.
  • The Actions menu has been renamed to be the File menu, because reasons and sense.
  • There is now an option in the File menu to delete one or more races. You monster.
  • The Breath Weapon trait has been rehabilitated from his goblin upbringing* and should no longer rage at all of the words on the rulebook entry tab. He still breaks some of the rules for how traits should behave in the program, so let me know if you see anything funky.

Oh, and just a note: The program checks for updates automatically and will prompt you when you exit. No need to creep all up on my thread to stay up to date.

*: They adopted him because he pukes death on people, and that's AWESOME.

Interestingly, the Actions menu started showing up. I downloaded the new version, and I get a crash report. It doesn't kick me from the game as I click on 'Continue' to ignore it. I will PM you the bug report.

Keep up the good work.


so i dont know if i am missing some thing but i keep getting this error

I made this using your program! I had to to add the Other Racial Traits manually, however. I also added all the b /b tags.

Fey Changelings
Fey have also been known to drop their half-blood offspring off on foster parents. Fey changelings have all the same traits as changelings from hag origins but lose darkvision in exchange for low-light vision and the fey resistance to damage from all but cold iron weapons. Their fey parentage also gives them increased dexterity instead of wisdom. All fey changelings speak one language of their foster parents, usually common, as well as naturally know Aklo and Sylvan. Unlike the hag changelings, fey changelings can be male or female. Like the hag changelings, they too will start to hear a mysterious call as they reach adulthood. Those that heed the call give up their former lives to become full fey creatures. Those that resist will find their own destinies elsewhere.

Physical Description: While they appear as normal members of their non-fey parent as babies and young children, their fey heritage starts to show as they reach puberty. Fey changelings' hair color typically turns to flaxen, dark, fiery red, or even green or purple shades. Their ears become slightly pointed and they gain light and skinny builds. Additional physical features, depending on the type of fey parent, will start to show as they age.

Standard Racial Traits
Ability Score Racial Traits: Fey changelings gain +2 Dex, -2 Con, and +2 Cha.
Type: Fey changelings are humanoids with the changeling subtype.
Size: Fey changelings are Medium creatures and thus receive no bonuses or penalties due to their size.
Speed: Fey changelings have a base speed of 30 feet.
Languages: Fey changelings begin play speaking Aklo, Common, and Sylvan. Fey changelings with high intelligence scores can choose from the following: Draconic, Dwarven, Elven, Giant, Goblin, or Orc

Natural Armor: Fey changelings have a +1 natural armor bonus to their Armor Class.
Fey Damage Resistance: Fey changelings have DR 5/cold iron.
Feat and Skill Racial Traits

Magical Racial Traits

Object of Desire: Fey changelings add +1 to their caster level when casting charm person and charm monster.
Movement Racial Traits

Offense Racial Traits

Natural Weapons: Fey changelings have two claw attacks that deal 1d4 damage. These are primary natural attacks.
Senses Racial Traits

Low-Light Vision: Fey changelings can see twice as far as a race with normal vision in conditions of dim light.
Weakness Racial Traits

Other Racial Traits
A changeling inherits one of the following racial traits, depending on the fey parent's type:
Hulking Changeling: The changeling gains a +1 racial bonus on melee damage.
Green Widow: The changeling gains a +2 racial bonus on Bluff checks against creatures that are sexually attracted to her.
Sea Lungs: The changeling may hold her breath for a number of rounds equal to three times her Constitution before she risks drowning.

Your problem isn't the same as Warhawk's. I'll send you a PM to see if we can troubleshoot.


Great program, thank you for sharing it with us.
Just found a little error: when you add the Skill Bonus trait, it works normally with all skills except when you select Sleight of Hand, it shows as Acrobatics in the Rulebook Entry.


Any chance of getting all of the ARG races in? Gillmen, Merfolk, Strix, and I'm sure others are missing, probably because they weren't statted up in the race creator section of the book.

Love the program by the way!


New Update!

  • Sleight of Hand will no longer display as Acrobatics for the Skill Bonus and Skill Training traits.

@Mervikoth: Those races use racial traits that don't have a point value, so they don't work with the race creation rules.


Fun and useful program. I did find that kobolds are missing their perception skill bonus. Is there any way to make corrections to stuff like this? Is it possible to add in or create new traits in any way? I'm sure plenty of us would like to be able to expand on the info and options presented. Thanks for the program again. :)

Cool, but Windows me no likes or has... so no .NET (haven't tried MONO or other)

Have you considered an online tool?
Maybe a library for other sources - Inner Sea Bestiary has some 0HD races with RP costs on their special qualities.

No Windows here either. ;(


Some bugs with it I am experiencing:

When I first open the program a pop-up box asking me to select a race appears, but no matter which race I pick nothing happens. The pop-up box stays there it doesn't go away. I can bypass this by clicking on the task bar and closing that pop-up window to get to the programs main window.

However, when I do anything in the program I get an "Unhandled Exception" error. It happens every time I type in a box or select from a dropdown menu. I can ignore the error and things seem to keep working, but it just keeps popping up over and over again every time I do an action.


Okay power users, I've got a customization guide up that documents the structure and function of the XML data files. I'll do some work on the program for better error handling on these files to make it easier on you, so you should see a new update in a couple of days.

Erathmuth wrote:

For some reason, the ARG kobolds don't have the bonus but the Bestiary ones do. I'm inclined to leave it as is unless folks feel strongly it should be changed.

@DonDuckie & Oceanshieldwolf: Sorry guys, early on I had considered doing this web-based, but I think doing a web UI that I'd be happy with would have been too much of a hassle and distract from the rest of the project.


No worries TBL, I understand, gotta prioritize…

Contributor

Very cool, but I'm having an issue viewing the Rulebook version of the races. Hopefully that gets resolved in the near future. That said, this is very helpful. A little more guideline on how XML works would have been nice (took me about 10 minutes to figure out through trial, error, and copy/pasting formatting cues from the provided XML files).

My OS is Windows 7 64-bit (6.1 Build 7601)


New update today that adds better validation and error messaging when loading data files.

@StarMartyr365 & Solusek: Okay, so it seems your problem is being caused by that first popup window not being able to close itself. I made a minor change in today's update that might address it, but it's a guess at best. I must confess that I'm doubtful it will work, but I don't have much to go on (I am also on Win7 x64, so that rules out the most obvious source of the problem).


Awesome. I am so making the Fremen from Dune.


Good in theory, but you are missing some stuff. Now i am making a race and this is awesome for it. It makes it easier. But you are missing the advanced traits. Such as flight, burrow, powerful swimmer and fast.
this is annoys me. But the program is good.


Everything in the ARG should be implemented, lich king. The Power Selection dropdown determines which traits are visible for selection, it sounds like you've left it on Standard.


Running on Windows 8, I see a similar problem to Solusek. Perhaps it needs a button allowing for the selection of the race?

-Ben.


I added CustomRacialTraits.xml within the Data folder, but the traits I added are not showing up when I run the program. I'm not sure what I'm doing/have done wrong.


Thank you, Bobby Llama!

It's a great program. I can recreate some of my races.

Thanks again.


Um, could anyone here help me with my problem? Does the file need to be formatted a specific way within it (certain categories, table or no table)? I read the online help for it, but I'm still not sure what I'm doing wrong.


Very good program. Only thing that I see that's missing is eastern weapons for weapon familiarity.

I was using this program no problem but then ran into this issue, but when I changed my text size in windows from medium to default it worked fine. Hope this helps


I've noticed that the Burrow trait in't listed.

Silver Crusade

There still isn't a confirm button for the races


For one of my races, every time I attempt to load the Rulebook Entry, this error message appears: Unhandled exception has occurred in your application. If you click Continue, the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue. If you click Quit, the application will close immediately. Index was out of range. Must be non-negative and less than the size of the collection. Parameter name: startIndex.

Actually, never mind. I figured it out. I had Bite as a racial trait, but my race was Tiny size. Which... doesn't make much sense to me. After all, in real life, there are plenty of insects that are capable of biting. Whatever.


New problem: the PFRB won't save my preferences for Breath Weapon, no matter which choices I select.

Scarab Sages

A minor bug. I downloaded a fresh copy to verify, same issue.

Basically, it opens the program and a race choice window when I load the program, but none of the choices work for the race choice and you can't click anything on the program.

Forcibly closing the window with the race choice creates the following error message and ask if I want to continue.

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
application or computer (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging
enabled.

For example:

<configuration>
<system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
</configuration>

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
rather than be handled by this dialog box.

Continuing is actually answer. If I continue, I'll keep getting the messages on everything I click the basic program, that is, until I click file>new.

And the new one works fine. No issues at all...

PS: I love this program.

A minor bug. I downloaded a fresh copy to verify, same issue.

Basically, it opens the program and a race choice window when I load the program, but none of the choices work for the race choice and you can't click anything on the program.

Forcibly closing the window with the race choice creates the following error message and ask if I want to continue.

** spoiler omitted **...

Ah, looks like it goes to the "load" option, which lacks a confirmation button. So I can see the options, click one, but not actually load anything, nor can I exit the load screen without forcibly closing the window.


The link appears to be broken. Is this still a thing?


^So it's not just my old computer refusing to work with the web site, then . . . ?


Yeah, it's broken for me too.

A little bit of a necro, stumbled across this while looking around to see if the tool had been updated. Guess not. :(

I've been saving useful little design/DM tools on my Google Drive, so in case something ever happens to the Wayback Machine, here's a mirror.

I tend to design a lot of races (I'm the resident content creator for our table since we like making crap up, and I'm hoping to start building content books anyway) and this lightweight little thing really speeds up the process. I may end up updating this in the future with newer content. Suppose I'll post an upddate here if I do! :P
