Engineer Suite information

Current release Version: 0.5.40
(release date 12 August 2019)

Engineer Suite setup.exe
Full installer. This is the recommended method.


Engineer Suite.zip - All files necessary to run NPC Engineer.
    NOTE: For best results, install the font included in the zip (right click and choose 'install' - it is a free font.)

    The program comprises several modules:

    NPC Engineer
    • Enable the import of NPCs from a variety of sources (PDFs, D&D Beyond, CritterDB, RPG Tinker and others);
    • Edit the imported information;
    • Parse to produce a bestiary module for Fantasy Grounds;
    • Export to a variety of formats, including RTF for MS Word, BBCode and HTML.
    It is also possible to create NPCs from scratch, save them individually to an NPC file for later parsing, and export to a NPC file suitable for other parsers.
    Images and tokens are handled as smoothly as possible - both are copied to the correct directory and renamed properly to make the process of building a bestiary as quick and as accurate as possible.
    The module file produced has a library section which mimics the Monster Manual, and NPCs import spell information and spell slots automatically when opened or added to the combat tracker (assuming you have the source book required open). All NPC functions are fully supported - Actions, Legendary Actions, Lair Actions, Spellcasting and so on.

    This version also creates a reference manual section for NPCs fully automatically.

    • Edit the imported information;
    • Parse to produce a codex module for Fantasy Grounds;

    • Paste tables from Excel, Sheets, Word;
    • Edit the imported information;
    • Easily include links to other tables (or other items);
