I’ve recently updated my Excel character creation tools for Astonishing ACKS. Linked below are the latest “Character Builder” files:
- Download: Astonishing ACKS Character Builder (1st-lvl) (Excel Spreadsheet)
- Download: Astonishing ACKS Character Builder (2nd-lvl) (Excel Spreadsheet)
They’re Excel spreadsheets; you’ll need a version that can handle slicers (2007 and later, I believe). I’ve made two versions; one for 1st-lvl characters, and another for 2nd-lvl PCs (since most of my campaigns now start at 2nd).
The first “Options Summary” tab lists available classes and cultures for my Hyperborea. The second “Character” tab is the actual builder.
Provide your Name and Culture (from a dropdown menu); then input your Attributes. Next, pick a Class and Template – and a stat block for your character appears below.
(If you’re already familiar with ACKS you don’t need to pick one of the prepared templates; they’re just intended to speed things up – especially with equipment selection.)
