Usually, character generators are used to quickly create characters in a more or less automated way, depending on the generator. Here you will find different generators for Dungeons & Dragons and Pathfinder RPG, presented in many forms: applications, Miscrosoft Excel sheet, editable PDF, etc.
A very complete random character generator that creates a new character, up to level 20, only by pressing F9 on your keyboard. Characters come with name, race, class (including archetype), short background and personal traits, skills, spells, appearance, equipment, etc. The generated sheet contains lots of space to manually add anything you'd like.
The generator works best with Microsoft Excel. You can also use the Google Sheets version, for which we recommend Google Chrome. Please be patient when refreshing the online version (with F9), as it may take several seconds for your browser to make all the calculations.

This Pathfinder character creation project started in March of 2011. Created by players, for players. It's mainly a huge Excel file with macros to help you build characters based on Pathfinder core rules and also most of the other books. The project is hosted on SourceForge. There you will also find a spell sheet and other tools. The project officially supports Windows and Mac OS. Make sure to enable macros when you open the file.
