I am looking for a character builder for Earthdawn, preferably 3rd edition. As the editions are not that different, this is not an important detail for me.

I downloaded the Earthdawn Character Editor 0.46 from Holger von Rhein, but it is far from perfect.
Does anyone know a better one?

I use The Second Step

It is for second edition (which I use) not third; but here is a list of changes It's fairly easy to use, prints character sheets in several formats.

I believe you can get it to work with 3rd fully, but I'm afraid I've not tried.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Pretty sure you can only do one free point/skill to begin with (might have to reread the RAW though) \$\endgroup\$

I remember having used Benjamin Legangneux's EDCG (Earthdawn Character Generator), version 1.3e, released in 1997 for the first, original edition of ED. It was an excellent utility - and I think it's still available online, even though perhaps only at mirror and archive sites.

One such site is the Earthdawn Blog, which has an entire page dedicated to various Earthdawn character generators. I think it's well worth checking out, as it seems rather comprehensive, offering quite a number of options to choose from.
