Opus in progressu (2)

I’ve been working to make the Cthulhu Invictus PDF character sheet fully form-fillable and interactive.

The first page is pretty much complete, all the characteristics and skills are updatable and automatically calculate the half and fifth values. The derived statistics: hit points, magic points, san points, damage bonus, and build are all calculated automatically as well.

There’s still the 2nd page to work on, which should be a whole lot easier than working with all those invisible buttons.

Version 001 (page 1) of the full auto-calc Cthulhu Invictus PDF character sheet.

I’ve also normalised all the form field names so that it will be compatible with the ‘download character sheet’ function in the Character Control Panel.

Without too much fiddling with the features in Adobe Acrobat I have manages to shrink the file size down to 3.2MB down from 8.6MB – though that will increase as I add further functionality and scripts. That will make a huge difference to ‘bandwidth’ when people download their Cthulhu Invictus Character Sheets from the site.

Here’s the first post in the ‘teaser’ category. I’ve decided to post about current work in progress from time to time.

So, without further ado I give to you Quintis Septimius Capiton, an Advocate by trade who is resident in Rome.

A small peek into the ongoing development of adding support for creating Investigators for the Call of Cthulhu supplement Cthulhu Invictus.

That’s the first occupation template done, there’s another seventy to go!
