    Default Random Stat Generator

    I looked around for a while for a stat generator that would use the 4d6 rolling method; choose the 3 best dice and discard the lowest. I was unable to find one so I spent a few hours playing with excel and came up with one of my own. It was a has been a while since I created this (someone else may have done the same thing in the meantime). But if you find a use for it, enjoy.

    A
    STR


    B
    =L1


    C
    =RAND()*6

    D



    E
    =RAND()*6

    F
    =RAND()*6

    G
    =RAND()*6


    H
    =CEILING(G1, 1)

    I
    =CEILING(D1, 1)


    J
    =CEILING(E1, 1)


    K
    =CEILING(F1, 1)


    L
    =H1+I1+J1+K1-MIN(H1:K1)

    Has anyone the link worked for anyone so far? Just setup a webpage so I am not sure I everything is perfect. It works for me so I hope it works for someone else as well.

    You may want to take a look at this, which does exactly the sort of thing I understand you to be looking for.

    I have posted the formulas for the excel sheet in my original post. If you paste them into excel it should work.

    I made that program a while back.

    It's 56K, does exactly what you wanted it to, when I asked if people would be interested, I got a overwhelmingly negative response, so I never got it posted anywhere, still have it though.

    It's a real program too, self sufficient don't need a website or internet access.

    Default Re: Random Stat Generator

    my problem with a lot of random stat generators is I can't really find a use for it barring creating quick NPCs. The problem is, if I'm going through the trouble of actually creating an NPC, I'd like to have control over their stats, making said stat generator useless for me.

    that and I just like rolling dice over clicking a mouse.
