Erik & Gral, if you're up for it, let go ahead and get started. If you don't have a particular opening scene in mind I was thinking of staring Erik's bard off at a performance - give you an opportunity to show off some of his magic/musical chops. Place isn't that important (you travel enough that you could be nearly any where) -some Jaiman locations:
Tanaris is close, the hundred crowns are always looking for entertainment.
Rhakhaan is just over the mountains and is the "empire" in Jaiman
Melurian states along the southern coast of Jaiman - mercantile city states

Gral - your opening will be a bit more constrained. I'd like to open with you getting ready for a reading. Brus has finally managed to get a way in with the Rhakhaan royal family. You have a seance with a couple (I don't have the names handy - they're at home) who are distant relatives to the emperor, but the woman weilds a great deal of influence with many of the "in" groups. Needless to say it's a big deal. While you're getting ready the dream world will start to bleed in. As of late there has been more shadow than light, always moving along the corners of your eye. Every now and then you hear whispers...

Thanks Gral - I'm trying to finish a scene for my book today, but I'll take a look tomorrow.

Quick question for Gral. I like how your character was posted. Did you do that the long way, or is there a trick to cutting and pasting the character to get it to look like that?

If you go to the post and hit the "quote" button you can see the bbcode I used, then just copy it and change the relevant data. Be warned, makes extensive use of the grid and subgrid tags resulting in a pretty huge and ugly mass of code. Give me a couple of days, maybe I can create a spreadsheet that makes the whole thing a bit easier.

I did that and then copied the whole thing into a spread sheet - it lays it out fairly nice. I don't know if it would help or just be more work, but the hero designer program has the ability to export into different formats (pdf, rtf, etc) would it be easier to do something with that?

Here's a link to the forum page for hero designer http://www.herogames.com/forums/forum/14-hero-designer/

I was sick for most of last week (and frankly I'm still recovering), and I'm out on vacation next week. However, I did spend some time making a spreadsheet you can use to generate the pretty bb code for your character sheet. I'll upload it tonight and link it here so you all can use it if you want to.

Alright, here you go. I created that with Office 2010. In case that is causing headaches for anyone I also uploaded this version that should work with older versions of Excel.

I put in an instruction sheet and tried to make it pretty easy to use but I might have failed. If it isn't obvious, you fill out the data in each tab and then copy the resulting bbCode from the "Output" tab. It also has the data from Dara's sheet so you can see how I entered her stuff.

Just a heads up - I'm on vacation next week and while I'll probably browse via smartphone occasionally, I likely won't be doing any posting.

no worries Gral, I'm in North Carolina right now. I thought I'd have more time to post but we're prioritizing time with KT's mom right now (she's recovering from some aggressive kemo & chemo for her lung cancer).
