Hi all,

I've been tinkering with the V5 Battleboard that can be downloaded from the main website for a while now.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with the one that Jan made but I always found myself wanting it to do a little bit more or wanted to add tools that might be useful to it. This stems from a background in pen and paper RP and the all important character sheet.

Obviously the Labyrinthian Battleboard is not really a character sheet but it does sort of fulfil the same purpose when considered next to your Character card.

The main differences between my version and the original are as follows -

expanded points spend sheet to include things like other forms of armour class, live to minus, max AC and a few other things
points spend sheet tracks a planned points spent and a current points spend
more information from the points spend sheet populates the battleboard

cleaned up a lot of the cell merge formatting
added a few useful areas for notes i.e. notes up top for things like damage reductions
have coloured in yellow all the sections that are for the player to fill out and are not currently populated from the points spend sheet

just a sheet for working out monster point spend on items...really nothing special

This sheet takes your skill level and calculates difficulty, doeses, batches, costs etc for all potions - I'm very happy with this one so far!

I'm really at the limit of my very limited Excel knowledge, I know a lot more could be done to make it more useful and whilst I only have a few ides of things I would like to do I am sure other people also have some great ideas and perhaps the knowledge to incorporate them in the sheet.

Stuff that springs to mind for the points spend sheet -

Would be good to have a 'drop down' here for class/race that then populates the base life points

Would be good if selectable race/class also populates the level skills and abilities gained straight into the points spend section and maybe even the battleboard.

Would be good to have a list of immunities that when selected - auto populate the battleboard

would be good to have a list of resistance levels that also auto-populate the battleboard

Would be good to be able to scroll down the points spend section without anything to the right of it scrolling in the same way that the top levels dont move when you scroll down

I can't seem to upload it on this site so I've put it into a shared Google folder - Anyone who is interested in either having a copy of it as is or better still...helping improve it just post here with your email address and I'll add you to the folder.

I've got backups so feel free to tinker with the file in the folder just keep a note in the folder listing any changes and perhaps we can update as we go along.


Just figured out that I can share a link to the folder - https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B0F...amp;usp=sharing
