The GURPS Character Generator is able to generate characters for the Roleplaying Game "GURPS" by Steve Jackson Games, Inc.
The gcg software reads inputs from ASCII-files which can be edited with any editor. Based on the information given in this files it will generate a character-sheet in various formats (plain text, html)
Here is a short example:
/* attributes not given are set to 10 */
/* comments are given in /* ... */
adv:will+2; /*gives a willpower bonus of 2, which is an advantages (adv)*/
dis:"Hates small people does not talk to them":-10;
/* this is a custom disadvantage (dis) with a value of -10 */
dis:"bloodl"; /*this command searches the disadvantages-database and finds the disadvantage "bloodlust" */
qui : "Likes blue clothes"; /*set some quirks*/
qui : "Dislikes red clothes";
/*the skil and skip command set some skills: "climb", "acro", "swim" and math will searched for in the skill-database, "Inventing" is a custom skill with base MVH. The numbers given here are the skill levels (skil) or points spent (skip)*/
First of all, the gcg will be available in the near future (late February '99). The gcg is written in plain C with is available for all platforms. So, the source-code will be provided here, plus executables for MSDOS/WIN95,98,NT and Linux.
