Pathfinder RPG Goodies: Venture Captain

As a confessed Pathfinderite (I don’t see that moniker catching on!) I am always on the lookout for new tools, ideas and goodies for my favorite fantasy RPG. Today while casually reading the tweet feed I discovered Venture Captain. It’s a site containing online tools for the Pathfinder RPG. The banner tells you right away it’s a beta version of the site, and besides links Pathfinder resources, the only tool there right now is just a Character Generator…

Wait! What did I say? I should not say “just”, man there is an online CHARACTER GENERATOR for Pathfinder in the webpage. Great!

I’ve become a great fan of online tools that can speed up my game in any way, from the SRD to spell cards and generators! I own Hero Lab and love it but realize not everybody wants to (or can) invest in software for their games. The Venture Captain Standard Character Generator includes all the basic races and classes from the core rulebook, it’s easy and intuitive to use and you can save the result to a PDF. This is obviously a labor of love and the creator is still working on it (here is his stated roadmap for the development) but so far so good.

I love the generator and look forward to the any features added in the future. So be sure to drop by, give it a whirl and thank the creator for this awesome tool! Enjoy…

Welcome reader, thanks for taking the time to find out just who I am! My name is Roberto, although in the Internet I usually go by the name of Sunglar. Long time pen & paper RPG player, mostly a GM for the better part of that time; some will say that’s because of my love of telling a good story, others because I’m a control freak, but that’s debatable… I was born, raised, and still live in Puerto Rico, an island in the Caribbean, with a small but active gaming community.

I’ve played RPGs for 30 years, and for most of that time I played D&D in all its various permutations, including Pathfinder and I'm currently playing D&D 5th edition. Other games my regular gaming group has played over the last few years include Mutants & Masterminds and Savage Worlds, but I have played many other games through the years, and plan to play many more. I am a compulsive homebrewer and rarely play a campaign I have not created myself.

You can follow me on Twitter as @Sunglar, and find me in Google+ also as Sunglar. I'm very active in Facebook where you can find me posting regularly in the Puerto Rico Role Players group. Looking forward to hearing from you!

    1. I am currently in hiatus from my campaign and playing Mutants & Masterminds, but itching to get back to it. It is worth giving it a try. Best of luck!

  1. I’ve been playing with the Venture Captain Char Gen and I like it pretty well. As you said it is still in beta so it can get buggy. Some of the drop down menus don’t work properly (mostly in magic items) and a few other minor things like that. Still it is a very nice set up and I can’t wait to see the final product.
    Of course the trovetoken Pathfinder Char Gen has seen a few updates and is also a very good tool. All of us Pathfinderites should really give the guys or gals working on these great toys a big round of applause and some cookies.

    1. @Geek Gazette, I had not seen the trovetoken one, will have to take a look!
      Pathfinderites together now…

  2. As the [only] developer of Venture Captain, I wanted to say thanks for highlighting the site. It is definitely in development and while a ton of stuff is currently supported, there is still a lot of stuff I'm working on (Armor is currently in the works).

    I dig getting a WINNING endorsement from an iconic!
