Are you fond of fancy bio templates, but tired of having to copy and paste everything by hand? Do you ever want to just summarize a dragon while you work on fleshing them out? Then you've come to the right place!

Just paste all your information into the required slots, and it'll do all the code nitpicking for you, so you can copy + paste the output directly into your dragon profile!

[font=courier new][size=7]getting started[i]![/i][/size][/font] [columns][img]http://via.placeholder.com/80x1/eeeeee/eeeeee.png[/img][nextcol][size=4]First off: you will need a Google Drive account. On opening the sheet, you might notice that it says "View Only". This is intended! Things would get a little hectic if everyone was trying to edit things all at once, so instead you'll need to clone your own copy of the sheet. Thankfully this is fairly simple: just go to File -> Make a Copy![/size][nextcol][img]http://via.placeholder.com/80x1/eeeeee/eeeeee.png[/img][/columns] [img]https://i.imgur.com/HW0E0SW.png[/img][br] [columns][img]http://via.placeholder.com/80x1/eeeeee/eeeeee.png[/img][nextcol][size=4]After that, you should be able to see the sheet in your own Drive folders. Go ahead and open it up! The actual usage should be fairly self-explanatory, I tried to leave notes to explain each of the cells and what they do. For the most part: plug things in where the sheet tells you to plug them in, and copy the cell that says Output.

eeeeee.png • Modules can be added and subtracted using the checkmarks.

• For cells that require a lot of writing (like the summary or actual biography bit) I recommend writing in a word processor of some sort and just pasting it into the cells once you're done (Excel is a little rough on the eyes, yeah).

• The section headings, stats, and info titles can all be changed, if you don't like the spreads I used. For example, here "Element" has been changed to "Pronouns".
