Importing & Exporting Characters as CHAR Files

About Character Sharing

Using an intermediary CHAR file, characters can be shared between various Campfire Stories. However, importing from a CHAR file essentially duplicates the character into your Story. It does not preserve Relationships with other characters or Events that the character plays a role in. It also is not updated when you make changes from within Campfire. Make sure you understand this before you start sharing characters between your various Stories.

Exporting

To export a character as a CHAR file, simply select the character you want to export and navigate to Characters -> Export Character to CHAR. Choose a location for the file and give it a name, and your character will be saved to that location.

Importing

To import a character from a CHAR file, go to the Characters View and navigate to Characters -> Import Character from CHAR. Select the CHAR file you want to import, which will add the Character to your Campfire Story.
