About the Character Generator

The Tinwatchman D&D 4e Starting Character Generator is a simple web application designed to help make the process of creating a 1st-level character easier. It allows you to select skills, feats, powers and – to a very limited extent – gear for your character, and then export your character's data as plain text.

Please keep in mind that this program is intended only as an assistant to character creation, not as an all-encompassing solution. You essentially must have a copy of the 4e Player's Handbook, published by Wizards of the Coast, on hand to be able to make any use of the application at all. Furthermore, not all aspects of character creation are represented or supported, nor will they be in the future. In the end, you’ll still have some pencil-and-paper work ahead of you…

…but hey, at least this way you’ll have something to start working from.

This application requires Adobe Flash Player 9. The plugin can be downloaded for free from Adobe.com. Dungeons and Dragons and the Player's Handbook are strictly © Wizards of the Coast, 2008.
