Greetings Fellow PCGen Fans,
I'm delighted to announce the official launch of
a website where PCGen users can share their character creations with each
Need a 4th-level halfling paladin quick? Eruvian contains a searchable index
of PCGen character sheets in PCG format. Search by gender, alignment, race,
or up to three combinations of classes and levels to find just the character
that you're looking for. As I write this email the index currently holds
some 56 characters, but with your help that number is sure to grow quickly.
Registering at Eruvian.com is free and allows access to simple tools for
uploading character files into the Character Repository. It also allows you
to review characters uploaded by other gamers like you, rating them for such
qualities as Depth, Verisimilitude (realism), Gameplay, and Creativity.
However, Eruvian is far more than just a character index. It is the first
site that allows _you_ to publish your own RPG content in an easily
navigable web format for free. Upload classes, deities, domains, items,
locales (with or without maps), organizations, races, spells, and vehicles,
including the PCGen LST data where appropriate. Organize this content into
rich worlds and full campaign settings, complete with encounters and
adventures. Click a link and all PCGen LST data for the setting is output in
neat LST files ready for loading into PCGen.
Eruvian is designed to be a collaborative, community-driven environment for
creative GMs to work together to build campaign settings of unheard of depth
and detail. Our flagship setting, a world called Pelagos, currently has over
250 pieces of content - locales, maps, items, deities, characters, etc. - as
well as a small team of active contributors. Take part in the development of
something bigger than any one GM could create; help develop one of the
existing settings or build your own setting from scratch.
The collaborative environment allows contributors to own pieces of a world -
a continent, a kingdom, a town, or even a single building - and dole out
ownership over sub-pieces to those interested in helping out. Own a kingdom
or an inn, dedicate your life or an afternoon, and in so doing become a
builder of worlds. In addition to your own creativity, you can also create
Content Requests - appeals to the Eruvian community to help out by
developing a specific piece of content for the area(s) you own. There are
currently over 50 open content requests for Pelagos - characters, locales,
maps, and so on - waiting to be claimed and filled by creative GMs.
All objects include both player and GM-only content, so GMs will be able to
use all the GM-only information to run their own campaigns while players
will view Eruvian as the world's largest player gazetteer, without seeing
stuff they're not supposed to. If the site is well received, PDF and even
print versions of some of the best content may be considered - the 100 best
characters, a collection of the best maps, and even campaign sourcebooks.
Please take a moment to check out www.Eruvian.com

to make it even better. All
feedback is welcome and encouraged.

Eruvian, this message is being sent to you with the express permission of
