You seem to be missing Toronto, Canada from your list
Ah, I didn’t see a thread for toronto, but I can add it to the list.
Here is the link:
Toronto Meetup Thread
@zhavier request to get @Hobusu’s sweet new player sheets linked
I had thought about requesting that myself, but I was going to wait until all the monocolor sheets were made. Speaking of which, anyone reading this can contribute by going to the thread @FrozenStorm linked above!
I will shamelessly suggest my beginner’s guide to workers for this as well.
I made it a wiki? I think that means anyone can edit it?
Yeah, there’s an edit button on my screen. I’ll put up my reference sheets later; it’s a bit awkward on mobile.
Edited, but for future reference, the post is a wiki to edit as needed. Ya know, in case I get hit by a bus.
The old forums have a (now defunct) link to Codex Discord. Is that still a thing?
I know there was a discord channel… I don’t know what happened to it, I wasn’t on there hardly ever. If there is a current Discord channel, it should definitely get added here.
Are there any comprehensive spoiler style cardlist with text like this?
I want it for translation to make pasteups. I really hate to copy and paste each page one at a time
http://codexcarddb.com/ Seems like a good candidate to almost do that. Probably as close as it gets.
There was an online spreadsheet (belonging to @sharpobject) which codexcarddb.com took all its text from. I’m not sure if it’s still active though.
This might help: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1IB2D82Fsd8cZ3gGDRAB3Dkd0eUSMURYJKpRq9Ho81q0/edit
You can also get some files generated from the spreadsheet here: https://github.com/sharpobject/disguised_monkey
Thanks all. I’ve just requested my access to @sharpobject file.
I’ve started to make Japanese pasteups and hope some Japanese friends to try…
oops, that spreadsheet should be public now
