Character Builder updates for the week of July 18th!

Hello again heroes!

Last week we played with fire and cooled down with ice, but this week we’re going to take a stroll through a quiet village with new backgrounds and don our new character build items.

New Features!

  • Cobblestone village backgrounds, great for NPC builds
  • A selection of new hats and a new hair option
  • Swash Buckler outfit
  • Necromancy and Light spells

If you’re in need of the finishing touch for a character’s look to come together, try one of the new hats added to our character builder. Once you’ve picked out a feathered or witch’s hat, try pairing it with our new braided hairstyle!

Have you been wanting to bring your swash buckling creation to life? With new clothing items to equip, you can make that dream a reality! These designs are just as good in addition to other pieces as they are alone.

Step into the dark side with a haunting necromancy spell, or conjure a magnificent beam of light with our added spell options. A new smoke spell adds an eerie element to any character build. Pair all of these items together and you’re guaranteed a wonderfully unique character of your own.

Before the month comes to a close, celebrate Christmas in July by signing up for a free account at www.BeNeverEnding.app. You’ll get full access to exclusive items when you sign up and use our character builder this month!

Character Builder updates for the week of July 10th!

Hey Adventurers!

We’ve cooked up some icy updates this week that’ll add even more dimension to your sorcerers, warlocks and all magic users. We present to you: ice spells!

To balance out the cold, we’ve added more apparel options for the NPC tavern cook, OC artificer or your average hero.

New Features!

  • Icy spells with several customized features
  • Spell features include a fist full of dangerous ice and a cold swirl of magic
  • Plain clothes for all characters, great for layers

When equipping a spell, try out the swirls of icy peril or fists of ice. Each spell has 3 customization options, giving you the ability to control the elements and pack a chilling punch.

Give your character simple clothes for their day-to-day, or equip an item to layer with your favorite pieces. Each item is built for all body types and fully color customizable.

Celebrate Christmas in July by signing up for a free account at www.BeNeverEnding.app to get full access to all premium features, including cool items to bring your characters to life! Hurry and sign up, access is limited to the month of July.

Character Builder updates for the week of May 28th!

Hello Everyone!

We are back with our regularly scheduled weekly updates AND a slew of new assets for you to create with!

2.0 Launch

In case you missed it, our CEO Jamie sent out an update detailing the new layout of the App and new features- check it out here: https://beneverending.com/2021/05/21/whats-in-our-2-0-and-what-are-we-working-on/

Be sure to head over to www.beneverending.app and try out version 2.0!

Don’t forget to share your creations using #OCbyNE!

Some things worth mentioning again:

When you go to sign on you’ll see we call out that the app works best on Chrome. Really it works well on everything except Safari (darn you Safari *shakes fist*) We’re tackling that issue over the next couple of weeks.

Once you’re logged in, you’ll see the sidebar menu is all icons. Find the little goblin in the upper left-hand corner if you want to see what each of those icons is for.



Head over to the Character Builder, and you’ll likely note the layout is much more user-friendly, with an easy left to right flow. The sub icons are better placed, and it’s way easier to tell what customization option you’re on. There are also MORE customization options! Some new options have only 2 or 3 choices, but we’ll continue to add new options every week.

If you’re not seeing a screen like the above, try clearing your browser cache and then do a hard refresh.  If you’re on Windows, press CTRL+F5. If you’re on Mac, Press CMND+SHIFT+R.

Because our developers and artists worked SO hard to get this out, we gave them extra time off. We won’t be smashing bugs from Friday, May 21 through Monday, May 24. But our dev and art teams will be back at it on Tuesday, May 25!

After that well-deserved break, out developers are back at it and working hard to fix bugs in the app.  They are currently testing a fix for the ears in the NPC builder, and we will let you know when it is live. If you encounter any bugs please let us know by emailing happiness@beneverending.com!

New Tokens!

If you check out the ‘Stage’ tab in the Character Builder, you’ll find a slew of new token frames! Download your character tokens and use them in platforms like Roll20!

See you next week!

What’s in our 2.0? And what are we working on?

We wanted to give you a quick rundown of our 2.0 release and let you know what we’re working on.

First thing – when you go to sign on you’ll see we call out that the app works best on Chrome. Really it works well on everything except Safari (darn you Safari *shakes fist*) We’re tackling that issue over the next couple of weeks.

Once you’re logged in, you’ll see the sidebar menu is all icons. Find the little goblin
in the upper lefthand corner if you want to see what each of those icons is for.

Head over to the Character Builder, you’ll likely note the layout is much more user-friendly, with an easy left to right flow. The sub icons are better placed, and it’s way easier to tell what customization option you’re on. There are also MORE customization options! Some new options have only 2 or 3 choices, but we’ll continue to add new options every week.

If you’re not seeing a screen like the above, try clearing your browser cache and then do a hard refresh.  If you’re on Windows, press CTRL+F5. If you’re on Mac, Press CMND+SHIFT+R.

Note the new “Randomize” button! Right next to “Save”

Right now, when you randomize it’s… really random. Thankfully you can still edit a random character. But rest assured next week, your randomized characters will have matching ears and boots!

Ahhh. Matching ears. *smiles wistfully* Sometimes it’s the little things.

If you tried the Character Builder on your phone previously and saw that it was less than ideal, try again. With our latest update, it’s more mobile-friendly. We’re not done yet! We have some really awesome mobile designs we’re working on that will make it more than mobile-friendly (mobile-lovey?). Stay tuned!

If you go to your library, you’ll again see a layout change AND pagination for your characters. This reduces the long load times for those of you who have already created 30 (or more) characters! If people ask for it, we’ll implement Instagram-style “forever scrolling.”

A new tool that we’re upper excited about is the NPC Generator. This tool is not focused on stats but on a portrait and cool descriptors to help you get in the head of the random NPC your players are insisting on chatting up for the next 30 minutes. We’ve got a few issues with it but wanted to release it as a proof of concept.

As part of our commitment to inclusion and representation, users can choose Male, Female, OR write in their NPC’s gender, whether it’s non-binary, agender, trans female, transmasculine, genderqueer, or something else.


The highlight here is our focus on descriptions that indicate the NPC’s personality and feelings about the world they inhabit. In addition to the randomized options, users can write in their own. Our hope is that this is more useful than stats for DMs looking to add flavor and personality to the characters the players interact with.

It’s suffering from the same randomization issue of mismatched ear, but next week that will be solved and we’re working hard on making sure that there’s some logic that matches the constraints you entered (like Female Dwarf Tavern Server) and the image you get back. The logic for the descriptions work, so we urge you to check that out and give us feedback if you haven’t already.

Speaking of feedback – be sure to message us at happiness@beneverending.com if you see any bugs.

Because our developers and artists worked SO hard to get this out, we gave them extra time off. We won’t be smashing bugs from Friday, May 21 through Monday, May 24. But our dev and art teams will be back at it on Tuesday, May 25!

Thanks for your support. Can’t wait to hear what your favorite feature or improvement is in the latest update!
