... is a set of interactive command line tools for Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition. This is the source code for the python scripts and install functions used to create the dnd-tools AUR package. The aim of this project, inspired by donjon, is to create an offline, cross-platform, gamemaster tool set -- since you probaly have too many browser windows open already :-D


  • Compeltely interactive: promted with start menu after every function
  • Character generator: any or all stat blocks and features can be randomized
  • NPC generator: 35 NPC classes with stat blocks populate as with character creation. Fixed NPC stats are in the Monster Manual and many places online.
  • Save generated character: export generated character to text file
  • Dice roller: any number of dice, any number of sides
  • Encounter calculator: calculates modified experience per party size / level and monster party size (and CR)
  • Loot generator: random loot tables based on CR, and indivdual or horde enemies
  • Initiative roller: random d20 rolls for x number of players (raw / without initiaitve bonus)
  • Tarokka card game: Tarrot card game from Curse of Strahd
  • Wild magic effects: Effect roller for Wild Magic sorcerers
