A set of ideas and practices regarding the metaphysical relationship between the computer and D&D
Tools for Pathfinder
- Golarion Calendar. An interactive calendar for Golarion, Paizo's campaign setting for their Pathfinder RPG, which includes phases of the moon, holidays, and special dates. The calendar is configurable to match your campaign. Both a desktop and mobile version are provided.
- Pathfinder Name Generator. Randomly generates names for various ethnicities for Pathfinder's Golarion campaign setting. Uses Markov chains to generate random names that resemble ethnic names on which the Golarion races are based, rather than selecting from pre-set name lists.
Tools for RPGamers
- Die Roller v1.2.1 (for Windows). Most die rollers use cumbersome, overdesigned interfaces that make you select the number of sides and then the number of die rolls using spinners, drop-downs, or multiple text boxes, when all you really want to do is quickly type something like "2d6+12" and be done with it. This is a die roller for Windows which accepts those arbitrary die strings and allows multiple die rolls and math operators in one line (this is great for attack and damage rolls with lots of modifiers). It also stores up to twelve presets that can be rolled via the function buttons F1-F12, and keeps a history window. See the screenshot. Random numbers come from .NET's CryptGenRandom().
- New features in v1.2.1 (released 10/26/2016):
- Fixed an annoyng bug in the UI when resizing the window.
- Paizo Messageboard/Play-by-Post WYSIWYG Editor. The messageboards on Paizo's web site use a BBCode-like syntax, but it's quiry and clunky and it must be written as source code. This is a WYSIWYG editor that implements the Paizo features, including those used in play-by-post campaign boards such as OOC text and dice rolls. Simply create your post naturally, then switch to the source view to copy the code and paste it into the Paizo forum edit box.
My Gaming Group
- Game Journals. Game sessions journals from the D&D/Pathfinder group I'm a part of, covering two of the three campaigns we've done over the past thirteen years. We meet once a month, and are currently playing the Jade Regent adventure path in the Pathfinder® RPG system.

Arodus 15, 4712 Today I have learned firsthand about troll regeneration. We failed to hit one of the trolls with acid or fire and it came back to life. >From what I understand Kali finished the troll off with an acid spell. Oracles really should get a spell like this. A spell that did fire […]

as written by the cavalier Olmas Lurecia, himself. Wealday, 15 Arodus Downstairs we did not find bright colors and spacious rooms. Is it any surprise that it got darker, and mustier, and .. well, what would you expect from rough hewn rock? We were descending into the mountain, and our level of caution went up […]

Wealday, Arodus 15, 4712 mid day Ravenscraeg We descended the stone steps into a claustrophobic narrow hallway. The mortared stone walls were wet from condensation and fuzzy from green-black mold, and the air was damp and smelled unpleasantly of soggy shoes. “It smells like Badger’s butt!” quipped Pookie. This set of such a round of […]

(Ravenscraeg, noon) Hard day, indeed. My hearing is returning, albeit very slowly. Everything is muffled and it feels like my ears have been filled with cotton. I can barely hear the others’ voices through it, and even when I do I can’t recognize who is speaking unless I am looking directly at them. Still, this is an […]

Early autumn, 4705 Kali tasted blood and sand. She wanted to open her eyes but her face was clenched so tightly from the pain that it was squeezing them shut. From her chin to her ear, sharp jolts radiated outward, each demanding her full attention. The pain intensified to the point where she wanted to scream but then […]
