Hello everybody,

as a fan project I try to build a character editor for Wrath & Glory.
It is still in the process of beeing build and not feature complete.

Version history can be found in second post.

Important: If you use some sort of adblocker like ghostery please ensure that you allow elastic beanstalk for proper execution of the graphics (CSS, JS from Bootstrap).

At the moment I am at version 0.3.0 and 1.0.0 I would say is feature complete.

Feature complete means for me: All features from the system are onboard, the presentation is nice and some usability is done that i want archive like a history of purchases (bp costs).

I would say im most cases you can use the editor right now as long as you don't need maimings for example which comes next.
Also the talent dedicant is missing (because it is so variable and therefore hard to program).

A lot of the math should work. If you find a bug or wrong calculation feel free to post it here.

Edit:
At the moment I have no validation for the number of psychic powers because I need clarification there. The rulebook is misleading about how many minor or major powers you can have during character creation and later per tier level. If someone can enlighten me I would appreciate it.

Second Edit:
If you have one thing that hinders you to use the character editor for your character. Feel free to post it here. Maybe I can add it soon (no promises!).

This is great ^_^

Though I do think I managed to break it by haphazardly trying stuff. The character editor form does not display content beyond the Attributes, ending with the words:
"Combat Traits
Defense (w. Shield)"

...

I don't know if it is due to me breaking the form, but I didn't find an option to create a New Character (after having created my first one).

...

A suggestion: allow adding custom Objectives. For example, my death cult assassin has
"Praise the death of an ally as embracing the martyrdom of the Emperor."
"Extol the virtues of the death cult as a means to give many lives to the Emperor."
"Offer a benediction to the fallen (including foes) in praise of the God-Emperor."

Another note: sometimes the system seems unresponsive - but actually it is due to some constraint (e.g. tree of knowledge, etc). It would be handy if that were indicated when I try to click something illegally.

If you manage to break it. Just close your browser. Afterwards the session cahce is cleared.
Breaking forms is easy at the moment, because I am not in polishing phase, but if you can tell me the actions that caused it, I will fix it (@soon).

Hi,

My tests indicate that the cost of the archetypes is not being added. Other than that, seems prety solid.
