About

Rencently, my friends and I have been getting into Dungeons and Dragons. As we were all new to the game, and didn't know anyone who could teach us, I created this.

The character creation is based on that of the 3.5 Dungeons and Dragons core rule books.

The program currently cover the following aspects of character creation: -

  • Race
  • Class
  • Gender
  • Age
  • Height
  • Weight
  • Alignment
  • Religion
  • Skills
  • Feats

Soon to follow will be: -

How was the program made?

As with all my projects, I used the Miscrosoft Visual Studio IDE (2005, v8). However, this project is an exception in that I actually use the visual side of the IDE. The Windows Form Application template aided greating in the creation of the program.

The installer was made in a similar way with the Setup Wizard Template which makes creating an installer very simple.

 

What does this demonstrate?

My ability to adapt to a different language. While it could be argued that this is still C++, this introducted Managed classes to me.

Also, my understanding of what an RPG character could be built of. I now have a very good knowledge of D&D character creation.

 

Why isn't this complete?

As I got the program to an almost acceptable state, D&D 4.0 was introduced to me. I had decided to abandon the project in favor for my other projects until the core rule books for 4.0 were released.
