These are two spreadsheets I found in my backups that help you design & plan your Gemstone III character.
The modified dates on these files say 1997, so I'm setting the date to 1997 based on that.
GS3_CG1B The Gemstone III Character Generator spreadsheet
The Gemstone III Character Generator allows you to examine various Race, Class, Stat, and training combinations in order to determine your optimal character. As you go through the Generator, all input sections are in BLUE colored text. The worksheets have been protected so that formulas are not accidentally erased. If you wish to edit the formulas, the protection can be turned off by choosing "Tools, Protection, Unprotect Worksheet" from the Excel menu.
• This worksheet allows you to select your desired race and class, then set a Target Total for the sum of the randomly generated character stats. This will give you an idea how long it may take to get your desired stats and what the various bonuses and penalties will be with those stats.
• You may also step through randomly generated rolls one at a time to simulate the actual rolling of a new character. View the Generator sheet for more details.
• This worksheet allows you to take your newly generated character, or any old one, and test various skill training scenarios. Ever wonder just *when* you will be able to train for that extra spell? Now you can plan your training all the way from level 0 to level 30 and beyond.
