I'm prepping a DCC campaign and Purple Sorcerer generates characters for the game.

Attached is the PDF version example of output.

Also attached is the JSON output.

Would be cool to make an importer for Dungeon Crawl Classics characters!

I started a little side-project for this, don't expect results too soon, though.

I love that you are working on this @JochenL! This will definitely help with my Open Table campaign for Platinum Patrons.

The output does not work for me. Neither the dcc.json file or pasting in from Purple Sorcerer.

The dcc.json looks cut-off at the beginning (top Log Entry). The bottom Log Entry is via Purple Sorcerer => Party Generator => JSON 500 option.

Did you try to just paste it into CL?
It is intended for uploading when creating a new log.

Yes, I pasted. Should it be upload only?

And when you say "when creating a new log" does that mean upload only into new Logs, or upload into existing Logs is ok and it'll append new Log Entries?

New and existing logs should work. I only tested a new one though.

Awesome! Importing worked great. The output is great!

I think there's a small bug. Every PC has a water skin in addition to the standard 3 pieces of equipment.

Or maybe that's in the rules?

Everyone gets a free water bottle. Make ya last a wee bit longer in me dungeon.

You can adjust the template in the HTML page to add as many additional items as you want. In the JSON I could not see a water skin for every character.

Ok. I will try an import again. I wish Purple Sorcerer generated small rosters than 500 PCs. !
