DD Software

Simons G+ post has got me to thinking. I've done no serious coding since writing and compiling a Tetris clone inf QuickBasic 4.5 (quiet in the back row, please!). So, I'm not volunteering, but ...


I believe there is a need for Delving Deeper based software.

-Character Generator
-Treasure Generator
-Random Monster Generator, including an NPC party generator with level appropriate equipment and magic

Most of the game stuff I can handle on my own. But computers are great at taking mundane and repetitive tasks and doing them in a jiffy. These 3 tasks, off the top of my head, would really help with prepping for a session or during the game itself on a laptop, notebook, or tablet.

Re: DD Software

I have command line piece of Perl code I spit out a few years ago.

  Code:
altair:bin mgt$ ./dd_rollchar.pl

Which method of generation do you use?
a) 3d6 in order
b) 3d6 arrange
c) 4d6 drop the lowest, in order
d) 4d6 drop the lowest, arrange
e) Exit

[Choose 1 - a,b,c,d]:b

Stat [1]: 9 [ 2 3 4 ]
Stat [2]: 12 [ 2 4 6 ]
Stat [3]: 12 [ 5 3 4 ]
Stat [4]: 10 [ 3 4 3 ]
Stat [5]: 8 [ 1 6 1 ]
Stat [6]: 15 [ 4 5 6 ]
 1) Strength     
 2) Intelligence
 3) Wisdom       
 4) Constitution
 5) Dexterity   
 6) Charisma    Choose the order of you stats:6 5 1 2 3 4
 Strength    :  15
 Intelligence:  8
 Wisdom      :  9
 Constitution:  12
 Dexterity   :  12
 Charisma    :  10
Gold: 7

But it needs some love to make it usable by the masses. :)

There's a world of opportunity in this space, so I've used this thread to launch a new sub-forum :)

Re: DD Software

I made a treasure generator using DD v3.

It works for A1 type treasures but the big part is not making the other treasure types. It's just making oe working which was a big point for me (disclaimer : I've never made programs or generators, so make comments so that I may Improve).

The file works for INSPIRATION PAD PRO version 3, available here.

Try, enjoy and provide feedback if something wrong happens.

You just have to create a new generator and copy/paste the following with the 'Edit table' command :
  Code:
Table: A1
[Copper pieces >> Bold] : [when]{1d6} > 4 [do] {1d4*1000} [else] none [end]\n&
[Silver pieces >> Bold] : [when]{1d6} > 4 [do] {1d6*1000} [else] none [end]\n&
[Gold pieces >> Bold] : [when]{1d6} > 3 [do] {1d12*1000} [else] none [end]\n&
[Gems (number & value, if any) >> Bold] :  [when]{1d6} > 3 [do] {!nbgems=3d12} : [@{nbgems} Gems >> implode] [else] none [end]\n&
[Jewels (number & value, if any) >> Bold] : [when]{1d6} > 3 [do] {!nbjwls=1d8} : [@{nbjwls} Jewels >> implode] [else] none [end]\n&
[Other treasure  >> Bold] :\n&
