Charactermancer refers to Roll20's system for integrating character creation into some Official Character Sheets.

The Charactermancer is a step-by-step process that makes building a character simple and streamlined. The Charactermancer is system agnostic, but current support is limited to systems listed below.

The Charactermancer relies on using the i Compendium to show different options.

It's not possible to create Custom Compendium or homebrew entries to be used in the Charactermancer, so to create any "Custom", the info needs to be entered each time separately.

[edit] Character Creation without Charactermancer

Most games with published i Compendium on the marketplace, have the ability to drag&drop class abilities, spells, items etc. from the compendium to the sheet.

This speeds up character creation considerably from manually copy/pasting or typing info to each section, even if it isn't quite as streamlined as a Charactermancer would be.

vampire the masquerade 5E(Market) is one such game.
