Around 30 minutes is where you point to the machine error checking I mentioned above.

Thanks again for all of your feedback. Unfortunately, I have too much other work going on in my life right now to put anymore work into this video. I did put in some of your recent feedback into my video description.

No worries... real life absolutely takes priority, and it's exactly why my scrub was delayed.  Thanks again for doing this!  :thumbsup:

Not sure if it's due to limited knowledge or limited time, but have you ever thought about setting up drop-downs for this sheet?

No... Aside from not knowing how to do them, I think the lists are too long to support them in a useful way.  What exactly did you have in mind?

Well the only issues I have with the spreadsheet it the amount of typing you have to do with it.
If each of the sections could be set with a drop-down then it would be more point and click.
Not vastly important, but just another thought to try to snag players.

When I first built the sheet Herb (the then-line developer) asked me to minimize verbatim content.  I figured drop downs would have violated that request, so didn't look into them.

Oh I figured since the other Spreadsheet had them it was OK, but since you where told by Herb not to then go with that.  :thumbsup:

Also, I am fairly far along on a complete conversion of the 3rd edition faction schools over to AToW.
Have all the Info sorted in a excel document and just have to fine tune it.
Should have this done in a day or two, and since you have done similar work before was wondering if you wanted to take a look at the results.

Absolutely!  I just did a first pass at the Faction level down in Fan Rules... Would love your take on those in light of your current work...  :)

Hey folks, just a reminder that all fan rules/fan created content needs to stay in the "Fan Rules" section. The Sarna Academy Path posts have been moved down there.

Thanks

Necro time!

Still having the conflict of making a Clan warrior, who had a change of clan due to losing Trial of Possession and becoming a new member.

Do I add both traits, new and old, as well the previous skills or does one supercede the other?

Help please.

( Bear to Horse : both skills and triats conflict each other... )

AToW page 53 says:
Quote
Players wishing to incorporate such changes into their backstory can do so by selecting two affiliations rather than one. The first affiliation must be the one the character was born into, and the second must be the affiliation with which the character ends the creation process. The controlling player must then divide all XP values (including the purchase XP costs) for both affiliations by 2, rounding any half points down, and apply the XPs for both to all relevant Attributes, Traits and Skills. If either affiliation has restrictions noted, only those of the final affiliation apply.

Does that help?
