Of Gods and Monsters in Aihrde

So I've been rereading the Crusader magazines recently and I ran across the Halfling Pantheon from "Of Gods and Monsters". I got to wondering whether they and the other pantheons could be included in Aihrde. Here's my thoughts: The After Winter Dark folio lists the Val-Tulmiph (Immortals) as "gods w...

Re: ICharacter Sheet ~ Castles & Crusades

Just as a thought, NovaPDF do a PDF printer driver for Windows that comes with an SDK license.
I've got at least two other pieces of software that have installed one and it works damn well.

Re: ICharacter Sheet ~ Castles & Crusades

I just bought the Mac version. I'll pile on and say this really needs either an option to print right from the application or to create a PDF. If it would just have a print option, a Mac will give you the PDF option by default. Opening the HTML file in Safari or Firefox looks okay, but when I go to...

Either is fine, I can spit them out to PDF if needed. If you send me the export just make sure the image is attached! If you send the PDF just make sure it is scaled so there are no blank pages, as I don't have a full version of Adobe to remove them from the PDF. Thanks!!! Incoming!!!! PDF versions...

Re: CL of a save against a staff?

Alternatively if you're looking to work out the level of a retributive strike, you could be really evil and treat it as equal to the number of remaining charges :)

In other words, a retributive strike with 20 charges left will do 20d6 damage and has a CL of 20 for any saves.
