  • Necessity
  • Originality
  • User Interface
  • Fun


Sometimes the random pawns generated by the game are just too… random. The Character Editor Mod is a great alternative to the classic Prepare Carefully Mod for modifying pawns before starting a new game, but it will also allow you to customize the pawns after the game has started!
