A new GURPS 4E Character Generator

I’m working on a role-playing campaign setting — a whole city, ripe for adventure. I plan to publish it as one big document, complete with maps, locations, characters, etc.

I decided this setting would benefit from a few appendices that list statistics for the major antagonists, according to several popular role-playing systems. That would mean less work for gamers when they encounter that antagonist.

What systems to use? I wanted popular ones, so I chose D&D 4th edition, D&D 3.5, and GURPS. Creating the D&D stats was easy, as there are several online character generators for that. But I couldn’t find a good character generator for GURPS.

So I made my own. I’ve posted a GURPS 4th edition character generator, which includes the complete list of attributes, advantages, disadvantages, and skills listed in the current edition of GURPS Lite. With this, you can roll up a character for a GURPS adventure in less than a minute.

The generator uses relatively simple Javascript, allowing you to save the webpage itself locally to your own hard drive for access if you don’t always have a net connection. It generates the character sheet as a separate page in a separate window. I’ve tested it in Google Chrome, Firefox, Opera, and Safari.

As always, feedback is welcome.
