For those who might find it useful, I'll pass along that I've adapted my character tracker/NPC generator, Quilvyn, to support both MN2E and the new 5E Legacy of Darkness.

The MN2E module incorporates both the core rules and most of the player choices from the supplements. It can use either the v3.5 SRD or Pathfinder v1 as its base rule set.

Although the 5E Legacy of Darkness module has been through testing, it might still have some rough spots around the edges--consider it beta.

The program's written in JavaScript, so no download necessary--it should run in any contemporary browser. Link to launch:

Expand either the v3.5 or Pathfinder 1E section to select the MN2E module or the 5E section for LoD. Quilvyn uses popup windows for a handful of functions--rule notes, for instance--so you'll probably need to let your browser know that's okay.

Wow! This is incredible! Thanks so much for sharing -- and for all your hard work!

At the risk of sounding greedy and ungrateful... any chance you might pick up Ruins of Symbaroum 5E by Free League Publishing, and add their class, race, and rules options to your character generator one day? In many ways, I think the character options in Ruins of Symbaroum 5E are closer to the classic Midnight feel than Legacy of Darkness is.

But even if you just keep things as they are, this is a truly remarkable tool. Thanks again!

Thanks for the compliments! I hope Quilvyn helps with your game(s).

I haven't previously heard of Ruins of Symbaroum, but I'll happily take a look. Tinkering with Quilvyn has become my hobby of choice, and there's always room for another plugin. Anything grounded in 5E shouldn't be too difficult to adapt.

I took a look at the preview for Ruins of Symbaroum on drivethrurpg. The most significant thing I noticed is the license text, which locks down the content pretty tightly--everything in the rulebook is specified as Closed Content except for whatever is copied from the 5E SRD. (By comparison, the mechanics in LoD are specified as Open Game Content, while the narrative text is Closed Content.) That pretty much precludes any thought of extending Quilvyn to cover RoS; were I to produce a plugin that implemented the setting rules, I couldn't legally make it available.

Ah, that's unfortunate. Good on you for doing your due diligence, and thanks for taking the time to look into my suggestion.
