Hi all,

I've been working on a character generator since late-December 2010 and have released it for all Runner to use.

I have two main goals for Chummer. The first is to be a standard character generator that lets you create a character with the BP and Karma systems, then maintain them throughout their career with Karma. The other is to give GMs a tool where they can create their NPCs and have all of the information they need in just one place (like weapon damage, armor ratings, etc.) without having to flip through a bunch of sourcebooks during game play (this really bugged me when I was running some of the SR4 missions).

By default, only content from the Shadowrun 4th Edition book is shown. To use content from other sourcebooks, select Tools > Options and select the books you would like to use. This was done in case there are Game Masters or players that want to limit their character options to only certain books. The sourcebook changes do not take effect until you load or create a new character - if you have one currently open when you make this change, it won't pick up the change until you save and reload it.

Chummer's data is all stored in XML and allows players and GMs to create their own Skills, Vehicles, Weapons, Qualities, and other goodies by creating custom XML data files. Full documentation on the data files can be found in the Chummer Wiki. Character sheets are also created using XSLT meaning that anyone can create their own custom character sheets with a little know-how.

This is a Windows application (Win XP/Vista/7) that requires Microsoft's .NET Framework 4 installed. Unfortunately it does not currently work with Mono, however, recent testing has shown that it should be fully functional with their next public release.

You can grab Chummer from http://www.chummergen.com/dev/chummer/Chummer.zip. This file will be kept up-to-date with each release as well for those who are just joining the party.

Please post any feedback, bug reports, and the like here.

Thanks!
