I've been looking for a character generator for the classic deadlands (weird west), but the only links I've found pointed to removed sites.

Can anyone point me toward a working one?

An easily adjustible character sheet in word or excel might also be a solution to my problem.

Offhand, I don't recall one. Since no one else had chimed in, I'd bet that's the general consensus. Sorry.

If you are looking for the Deadlands Classic Character Generator DLCG, there is a Yahoo group, where you still can find the installable version:

Deadlands Character Generator originally written by James Cook

This one works quite well.

There is one for Hell on Earth "out there", too.

Both are based on an MS Access database and Visual Basic 6 code. The development activities on both seem to have stopped about 10 years ago.
It would be quite interesting having a more open-source and maintainable version of DL Classic generators available. But if no one puts the - considerable - work into it, we're stuck with those "elderly" ones.

Wow, I am really surprised that this is still floating out there. James started this pre-1997 when we were both still in college and he was playing in my Deadlands game. Now I am feeling really old.

Thanks!

Might have to brush up on my VB.net skills though ... still seems to need a save/load option and an experience mode. Smile But seems to work great to fastly create some NPC's.
