Text Role-playing Game Creator Character Switching
This feature of the Text Role-playing Game Creator will allow you to run multiple Characters in the same Role-playing Game via an OPTION menu to switch between Characters.
When I first created the Text Role-playing Game Creator I coded in an option for the script to check, allow updates, edits and identify which Characters belongs to a specific Player in a Role-playing Game. I left it dormant at first but as of the 23rd January, 2016 it is now active.
How To Use It
When you click the "Create Character Button" or "Create Associated Character Button" the script will first check to see if you have a Character for the current Role-playing Game. If it is your first Character it will give you the usual option to start the process. If it sees that you already have a Character then it will ask you if you are sure you want to create Multiple Characters. This is to ensure that you are not creating another Character by mistake and to prompt you to find out if your GM / Dungeon Master / Referee accepts multiple Characters. If you've done all that already then you can create a Character as normal.
The usual FP amount is required for each additional Character you create. You will notice the process is the same as when you created your first Character. To work with Multiple Characters please select "More Options" button (Usually at the top or bottom of your Character Sheet) from any of your Character Sheets that belong to current Role-playing Game. You will then see a screen similar to the attached image below along with an explanation of how to use the buttons / options there.
Identifying a Player With Multiple Characters
When a Player creates additional Characters they are called, "Associates". When a Player has more than one Character a button appears underneath their Character's Avatar that says "Has 'x' Associates". When this button is pressed it takes you to the GM Stats to show you all the Characters created by that Player. See an example via my Posts on the Text Role-playing Game Character Creator Thread. The number of Associates you have is automatically updated when you visit the "More Options" button on your Character Sheet.
