    Default Faction character information

    Greetings,
    I am building a spreadsheet to track family member progress. Is there a file in the EB2 folder that identifies each FM's traits, past and biographies as listed when you right click on their character. I'm trying to find a simple way to copy and paste that information and avoid having to start EB2, copy information down by hand and then type it in manually.
    Thank you.

    The closest thing is mods\EBII\data\world\maps\campaign\imperial_campaign\descr.strat

    That shows the situation at game start, but obviously things change from that point forward. Also it's a text file and thus not very friendly from a data gathering perspective. Even worse, the terminology is "game code" and thus not what you see when you look the character up in-game. For example:

    Code:
    ; City: Ambrakia
    ; Region: Epeiros
    ; --------------------
    character	Alexandros ofepeiros, named character, male, age 21, x 172, y 148
    traits NaturalIntelligence 4 , NaturalCharisma 3 , NaturalEnergy 4 , Selflessness 5 , LoyaltyLevel 5 , Temperament 5 , ApeirosAiakides 1 , AlexandrosAiakidesBiography 1 , GoodTactician 1 , GoodDefender 1 , CommandExperience 2 , GoodAdministrator 1 , InspiringSpeaker 1

    Ha! Oh well... thanks for pointing it out to me. I appreciate the help. You're right, not exactly "user friendly" for my intended goal. Best of luck in your games.
