I hope you all have been keeping warm! I’ve been burning the midnight oil working on some cool new features for HeroSheets subscribers. None of these are live yet, but they will be in the next week or two.
Manage your character’s memorized spells in the new Spellbook feature. This supports actively memorized spells, not additional Wizard spell lists. Wizards will be able to choose from the entire set of valid spells. Check out some screenshots:
We’ll soon add support for class-specific spell stuff, like Wizard Lists and Cleric Domain Spells, in the future.
I never liked the “Equipment” part of the character creation process. To make it friendlier, each class now has a recommended set or two of starting equipment. All the items are solid for starting characters, and within the class’ budget. No more sorting through thousands items to find something like a basic longsword! Of course, if you want to add something else, the option is still there.
If you’ve created a feat that requires a specialty like Weapon Focus, you’ve probably noticed that searching through the dropdown to find “Longsword” is a drag. I’ve added typeaheads to the feat table so it will autocomplete your entry and you never have to scroll through a giant, unwieldy list again.
Class Optimization Guides
Very soon, HeroSheets will release the first in a series of class optimization guides. Our first release is for the Ranger. Stay tuned to this blog for details!
HeroSheets for iOS 7
You read that right! I’ve just submitted a HeroSheets application to Apple for approval. This app will be free for subscribers. I’ll post more information about that when it’s finalized, but here are some screenshots to whet your appetite:
That’s all for now folks! Expect the app changes to go live within the next 7-14 days. Hopefully the iOS application process will go smoothly and you’ll hear an exciting announcement about that. Don’t forget that subscriptions to HeroSheets come with a free trial! Start your free trial today.
