About This File

This is an Excel spreadsheet that generates Hero Designer prefabs using Custom Skills and Custom Powers. It works best for creating lists of items such as equipment. It does not add (or extract) advantages or limitations though these can be added in Hero Designer. It can separate groups of data into Lists. Once appropriate data has been entered, paste the resulting output in to an empty HDP file.

 

For Equipment:

Captures Name, Description, Price, and Weight.

 

For Skills:

Captures Name, Description, Skill cost, End Cost, Skill roll. Options for custom skill or skills using the Power Skill

 

For Powers:

Captures Name, Description, Real Cost, End Cost

 

 

Description Example: Given the following block of text if entered in the Description area of the spreadsheet:

<i>Creates a small bubble of acid that is hurled at the target</i><p>Ranged Killing Attack 1 point (vs. PD), Penetrating (+1/2), Uncontrolled (+1/2), Continuous (+1) (15 Active Points); 1 Continuing Charge lasting 1 Turn (-1 1/4), Gestures (-1/4), Incantations (-1/4), Extra Time (Delayed Phase, Only to Activate, -1/4)

 

This is applied to the Display area of a HD power resulting in: (Note italics and separation of first and second line.

 

Creates a small bubble of acid that is hurled at the target

Ranged Killing Attack 1 point (vs. PD), Penetrating (+1/2), Uncontrolled (+1/2), Continuous (+1) (15 Active Points); 1 Continuing Charge lasting 1 Turn (-1 1/4), Gestures (-1/4), Incantations (-1/4), Extra Time (Delayed Phase, Only to Activate, -1/4)

 

Instructions are included for use and sample data to get a better idea of how this works.

 

This was designed in the Open Office spreadsheet and converted to XLS. I have not been able to verify its full functionality in Excel. If there are issues or questions, please let me know.
