Description
I've been working on this project for my RPG group who plays a game published by White Wolf called Scion. Do to all the time we were wasting constantly recalculating our dice pools I decided we needed a way to quickly solve that problem and since nearly every player was tracking their character on a editable pdf it was an obvious next step to create a program that could handle that for us. After I got started I pretty quickly decided that it should be able to keep track and calculate everything for us.
