PCGen is a Java (1.5+) -based character generator aimed at supporting OGL role playing games like those based upon the SRD, RSRD, and MSRD (such as Dungeons and Dragons). It is highly configurable by the users, allowing the Game Master to add or remove races, classes, feats, etc., and to implement house rules such as differing class or race restrictions. Level advancement is also supported, with configurable progressions of feats, skills and ability score bonuses. For "at the table" support, PCGen offers a set of GM plugins. Further options allow the user to produce a customized character sheet, which can then be viewed in, or printed from, the user's WWW browser. It can also produce a "party" sheet with the information needed by the GM.


Of special note for this release is the addition of a new source dataset based upon RPG Objects Darwin's World 2 - Terror of Twisted Earth. Additionally, many bugfixes have been incorporated into this, the fourth beta of the 5.14 development cycle, as it moves towards the next production release. With another 65 issues fixed, this release is looking more stable than ever.
