Resources for your PnP gaming needs.
Posted 30 August 2006 - 03:56 PM
Any application, resource, website, link, or advice contained in this thread is presented to the members "as is." If one of the links fails to work or misdirects to a different site, please report it within this thread and it will be reviewed and possibly removed from the list. Likewise, if you have heard of or, even better, have experience with a particular resource, please feel free to post a link and a brief description within this thread.
All resources must be free, although we will post free demos for commercial programs, and we will refuse any link that links to a commercial transaction page. We will also delete any links once it become clear that a resource is no longer free. Obsidian neither endorses nor advocates any of these products. This thread is informational in nature and you use any of these resources at your own risk. Otherwise, we hope that you find some useful tidbits to help you with your gaming. If you have any questions, please post them here.
Note: This thread is meant to be used as a resource, not a discussion forum. While you are free to post links that fall under this threads sanction, such posts will be pruned after the link is checked and added or regected by the mod team.
Likewise feel free to discuss these links if you have problems with the link or software they link to, or wish to have any information on the list updated. But again such posts will be pruned eventually to keep the thread clean.
Furthermore any off topic discussions will be deleted without notice or warning.
Links will be provided within the second post downward

This compact suite of applications allows for swift monster generation, advancement and customization, all within the context of 3rd edition(3.5). What once took up to an hour of dungeon masters' time, now takes seconds. Large Fiendish, Half-Dragon Dire Wolves with 18 hit dice can now take their place of honor amongst the kraken and the hydra.
There are currently three applications worthy of note: There is a version made for massive customization (allowing templates, magical items and equipment, stat adjustments and feat selection), a version made for speed and simplicity, and another which can generate multiple creatures randomly based on the challenge rating or encounter level desired.
The entire project is completely free and available now. It is continuing to be enhanced daily with the ability to add class levels coming by the end of the week.
My goal is to help foster and reinvigorate the 3.5 community by contributing to the tools that enhance the game by allowing time for creativity rather than crunching numbers.

TrueNeutral, that's a good question.
I'm not sure if there is any place online that has something like that, but most game manuals have a section to ease new gamers into them.
