How to use this
|This tool can be used to quickly generate Pathfinder 2 Monsters and NPCs and creates both plain text and formatted HTML outputs of those creations.|
|This tool is meant to be used along side the Pathfinder 2 Monster Creation Guide. A free version of those rules can be found here:|
|Monster Builder||This page follows the steps of the Monster Creation Guide using dropdown menus for each step to make it simple for the creator. The recommended values for each statistic are shown based on the dropdown menu inputs and then the creator selects the final values for each statistic if they would like to tweak them further. Cells marked in green are changeable by the user. All other cells should not be edited to avoid breaking the spreadsheet.|
IMPORTANT: Avoid using copy/paste to move recommended values into the final values columns as this can break the spreadsheet.
|Text Output||This is a plain text output of the created monster using unicode characters for the various action icons. You should be able to copy and paste this into most things that accept plain text.|
|HTML Output||This is a rich text HTML output of the created monster that mimics the formatting that Archives of Nethys uses for their monsters. Unfortunately Google Sheets can't render this output natively, so you will need to copy the HTML code from this cell and paste it into something that can render HTML. There are a few ways to do this:|
1) The easiest way is to go to the HTML Output tab and then from the menu select 'File -> Download -> Tab-seperated values (.tsv, current sheet)'. This will download that tab to your default download directory (The 'Downloads' folder on windows) and will be named something like 'Monster Builder 1.1 - HTML Output.tsv. Make sure you can see the .tsv file extension or this next part won't work! Now you can just change that file name to <whatever>.html and you should be able to open it with your favorite web browser.
2) Another option is to open a plain text editor (notepad on Windows) and paste the HTML into a document. Then save that document as <whatever>.html. You can then open this new file with any web browser.
In either case an example of what this file should look like is shown below.
|Who made this?||This was made by u/DoggieBert on reddit or DoggieBert on the paizo forums. Direct all questions/complaints to him.|
|Why can't I do X?||If there's a new feature you'd like to see shoot me a message. I'll add it to the list.|
|What's a plain text editor?||If you're trying to use method 2 above to save your HTML output you may be wondering what a 'plain text editor' is. This is a text editor that saves files in plain unformatted text (usually a .txt file). If your text editor saves files as .rtf, .doc, .docx or others then it will not work for that method. You can usually tell if an editor is not a plain text editor if it allows you to do things like bold or italicize words.|
