Hiya Pecete - I've got two submitted examples I just started formatting/posting, hopefully they'll be up by the end of the weekend.

BTW, these examples have been really nice to have when trying to create a combat checklist for 4th edition rules. So thanks for the work folks!

Definitely two projects that complement one another nicely - so thank *you* folks for the 4th edition combat checklists! :)

It's kind of a pipe dream, but at some point in the future I'd love to 'automate' the combat checklist - that is, enter some initial data (skill level, target's DR, etc.) and have the checklist do all the computations for you as you go through the steps. Not the kind of thing (I would think) you'd use while actually playing, at the table, but would be fantastic for quickly running through a number of scenarios and learning the flow of the rules.

Unfortunately I know no Javascript or Python or anything, so it would have to be a massive Excel spreadsheet. I did some preliminary work on such a beast many years ago under 3rd edition - so who knows, maybe someday.

Don't we all! Well, I can program but I don't have the time... and it would be really great if this imagined system could load characters created with the Character Assistant program. The file format seems pretty easy to parse but it would be really nice if it was changed to an XML-format someday.

Hmm, maybe I can get some students to do it as a project. Unfortunately the next bunch lining up for that will be in 9 months or so...

How about something with criticals or fumbles?

I appreciate your patience folks (assuming you have been being patient; if you've been secretly cursing my name, no appreciation for you!) - a new example has been added to the pile, Melee Example Four:

http://www.themook.net/rpg/examples/...ex.php?id=four

This one was submitted by Lord Helmet - please have at it, tear it to pieces, make corrections, the usual. Once it's been thoroughly vetted I'll add a PDF like the others.

It's not much, but Melee Example Three has some crits - I'll try to add more to upcoming examples.

Nice example. How about including a Feint and/or a Deceptive Attack?

Cheers,

No Feints yet, but both Melee Example Three and Close Combat Example Two have Deceptive Attacks thrown in.
