A Quick and Easy AD&D 2e Character Generator

So, the big March 12th camping trip is approaching, and I was telling my friends about how I was going to whip up some pre-generated characters so if one of their characters bites the bullet, they can pick another one and we can just keep on rolling. One of my friends pointed me in the direction of this particular website which has a great AD&D 2e character generator which uses scripts to quickly roll up the various methods of stats and assign them, choose race and class, etc. It calculates all the bonuses for you and everything. I've never made a character so fast in my life. In fact, I made 7 of them tonight for the game. I highly recommend it for whipping out some quick back-up characters or to speed up character generation at your own table. The site itself is old, and hasn't been maintained in a while, but the generator still works like a charm.
