Hackmaster Basic Character creation assistant

March 10, 2011 2 comments

I got the first version of Hackmaster Character creation assistant ready. Creating a new HMB character requires quite a lot of bookkeeping with Building Points so I spent some time create my own little helper for that. One of my motives was to easily create some premade characters for new players that I might succeed to lure into playing HMB.

Please try out my work and feel free to comment it and point out any errors or flaws you find out. There is undoubtedly some of them still around since I’ve become a little blind for all the details after working with it for a while now.

The actual thing itself is an Excel sheet.

Edit: I already made some small corrections to formatting of the sheet and clearing some presets left from testing.

Santa is coming tomorrow

December 23, 2010 Leave a comment

Well it’s been a while again since posting here. It’s been a busy year on all other things than gaming unfortunately. Mom passing away in the spring and then the storm in autumn on top of all the usual chores. It took me most of the autumn to chop those ten fallen trees into a firewood after my normal office hours. Ever shortening daytime didn’t help that much either. But it was finally done before the snow came in.

My friends also got me sucked in to the Flames of War WWII miniatures game. I have never been very interested about War Hammer or 40K or games like that. My opinion is that they are overpriced and the more you spend on your army the better chances you have to succeed. That is does not go well with my ideas that gaming should be fair and equal to all players resourcewise and the skill defines if you succeed or not. With miniatures you have to amass a hefty collection to have a flexible army to fight against different types of enemies in a different types of terrain. If you buy a single copy of some good old boardgame like Combat Commander, you get all that for several nations in one box without any need to invest more and more to your army. That is still my opinion even though I have my US army for FoW now with enough flexibility for most of the different scenarios. I don’t even value the game itself very high as a proper WWII simulation compared to my any game in my boardgame collection either. The rulebook is very badly organized and the rules themselves don’t seem very intuitive to me but that may be because of my background with ‘meatier’ games. But if I close one of my eyes and don’t demand too much from the system it is fun enough and with good friends to play with it is worth the invested money and time after all.

On the more heavier side I got a bunch of new games during the last few months from GMT games also. Sword of Rome deluxe reprint finally emerged from the printers and then GMT had their usual Fall Sales and I got 1 discount game for each preorder I had made earlier this year so I got Twilight Struggle deluxe edition, Fast Action Battles: the Bulge, Normandy ’44 and Monmouth for half price. Now that’s a lot of games in one time (SoR also arrived shortly before these four discount games) so I have only had a chance to try out FAB: the Bulge so far on the table and I really like it. Can’t wait to get those other games on the table too.

But now it’s time to wish you all happy holidays and a propserous year 2011!
