I’ve created a character generator for Labyrinth Lord (LL). I had created one for LL OEC some time ago, so this was overdue. I may work on some of the more complex games (as far as character options) next, perhaps LL AEC or S&W Core/Complete.
For this generator, there were a few assumptions I made, most due to the expanded weapon and armor tables in LL as compared to B/X.
- It is possible to generate a thief with studded leather armor. The rulebook says they are limited to leather armor, but does not say precisely which type.
- Halflings and Dwarves are not prohibited from using all two-handed weapons, just the larger ones like polearms, two-handed swords and long bows. This was always widely house-ruled in the LL community, since it prevented Dwarves from using a Battle Axe, for example.
- Magic-Users can use darts as a missile weapon. The rules just say they can use “small weapons such as a dagger”, so I added the dart to the mix in keeping with the AD&D weapons table that LL is based on. In practice the dart and dagger are pretty closely matched as missile weapons anyway.
