It's a great time to be a Wittenberg gamer, friends. You see, I'm not the only one who's been busy...
My good friend (and the man who got me hooked on Savage Worlds in the first place!) Will Herrmann--better known here as the Journeyman GM--has been working on a secret project in his spare time. Titled the "Wild Card Creator", this computer utility allows users to generate characters for Savage Worlds and its various settings in record time.
Will has just begun a Kickstarter campaign to fund the completion of his program.
If this is something that interests you, jump on board now! His press release follows:
Introducing Wild Card Creator. Any PDF, Any Setting, No Extra Cost!
Journeyman Games has just announced a Kickstarter for their Wild Card Creator, a computer program that helps gamers quickly and easily design characters for the Savage Worlds tabletop roleplaying game. The program enables you to generate, save, and print characters in both stat block and character sheet formats, enabling you to access them whenever you need, in a fraction of the time it takes to do it by hand!
Because Wild Card Creator comes pre-loaded with the full text of Savage Worlds Deluxe, you can start making characters right away. But what if you want to make characters for a supplementary setting like Deadlands, Agents of Oblivion, Hellfrost, or any of several dozen other settings? Other character creators would make you type it all in yourself or force you to pony up $5-$10 for the same content you already own. Not Wild Card Creator.
If you own any published Savage Worlds PDFs, Wild Card Creator will be able to import any new Races, Edges, Hindrances, Gear, and other character options without you paying anything more! If you've got the PDF, you've got the content. Pinnacle Entertainment Group and 14 other companies have already given permission to allow Wild Card Creator to work seamlessly with their full range of PDFs, so your favorite settings are sure to be supported.
Wild Card Creator will be available for Mac, Windows, and Linux and has an estimated release date of November 2012.
Twitter: @JourneymanRPGsOh, and I haven't been quiet this week, either...while I'm taking just a short break from work on Cold Steel Wardens before finishing revision, I'm still pumping out nearly 4,500 words a day on....well, you'll see. :D
