About Your NPC, Aelan Mooneye
- I noticed that he has 23 ranks in Speak Language, but I don't see where it lists what languages he knows.
- His AC is 38, not 50 because the AC bonuses from the armor of the celestial battalion and the bracers of epic armor both provide armor bonuses, so they don't stack.
- He has the Epic Spellcasting feat but no epic spells.
- He has Improved Spell Capacity but his list of spells prepared does not reflect the extra slot.
- His spell slots do not take into account the feat Spellcasting Prodigy. He should have seven 1st-level slots, six 5th-level slots, and five 9th-level slots.

- I have to fix several things, but I am limited by the E-Tools etc ...
- What are "E-Tools"? --Green Dragon 20:48, 26 September 2006 (MDT)
- It's a character design program made by code-monkeys. A continuation of the CD that was included with the original 3.0 PHB.
- Oh. Thanks. --Green Dragon 19:08, 30 September 2006 (MDT)
- I think most of the NPCs were put together using E-Tools or something similar. Based on the errors I've found, it's good for low-level NPCs that only use feats, classes, and other elements in the SRD. The higher level NPC you create, the better off you are just doing it by hand, and in fact, I've found more errors with just Aelan alone since first I pointed out the afformentioned ones. —Sledged 11:35, 2 October 2006 (MDT)
- People don't make them on their own NPC's... That is weird, I thought everyone did. Sad. --Green Dragon 21:41, 3 October 2006 (MDT)
- Well, the user still has to choose all the important stuff: race, classes, feats, skills, ability score increases, equipment, etc... The benefit is (supposed to be) that the tools does all the modifier calculations for you: attack bonuses, saves, how many feats the character is supposed to have, skill modifiers, etc...
- Haven't used one myself, but based on the outputs I've seen, I'm highly skeptical that they take into account all the little nuances, such as in what order class levels are taken—which affects saves and attack bonuses for epic characters—and at what levels the character gains Int increases—which affects total skill ranks. —Sledged 10:06, 4 October 2006 (MDT)
