PCGen

PCGen is a Java (1.5+) -based character generator aimed at supporting OGL role playing games like those based upon the SRD, RSRD, and MSRD (such as Dungeons and Dragons). It is highly configurable by the users, allowing the Game Master to add or remove races, classes, feats, etc., and to implement house rules such as differing class or race restrictions. Level advancement is also supported, with configurable progressions of feats, skills and ability score bonuses. For "at the table" support, PCGen offers a set of GM plugins. Further options allow the user to produce a customized character sheet, which can then be viewed in, or printed from, the user's WWW browser. It can also produce a "party" sheet with the information needed by the GM.

            PCGen 5.17.4 (Alpha) Released
            PCGen 5.17.4 (Alpha) marks the PCGen team's shift of focus to the next developmental cycle. Download your free copy here:

            https://sourceforge.net/projects/pcgen/files/

            One of the primary goals for this cycle (5.17.x/6.0) includes the completion of 'under-the-hood' architectural changes begun in 5.14.x and continued through 5.16.x. These changes, though for the most part invisible to the user, will make way for some long needed changes in the user experience as work begins on overhauling the User Interface and the LST Editors. Another benefit of the changes underway as part of this development cycle will be a furthering of PCGen's flexibility when working with the d20 rules system, but will in the end, also make it easier to adapt PCGen to the myriad rules system used throughout the gaming industry.

            You can see all of the changes included in this release by checking out the release notes:
