Abstract I have created a program to assist in making characters for the Savage Worlds tabletop role-playing game published by Pinnacle Entertainment Group. This pro- gram was written in Java and uses a SQLite database to store character options. Principles of user-centered design were followed to make the program intuitive and easy to use and feedback from potential users was gathered. Programming design patterns were used to make it easier for me to implement and maintain the program. Ultimately, this program has been a culmination of my learning here at Wittenberg University and has been an opportunity for me to independently expand my knowledge of Computer Science.
