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 (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 (released 6/12/2016):
- Added "Play By Post" output format
- Added ability to keep the highest or lowest M dice from N rolls (e.g., roll 4d6 and drop the lowest result)
- Added help page
- Packaged with an installer
- .NET framework bumped to 4.5 for better compatibility with Windows 8, 8.1, and 10
- 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.

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 […]

as written by the cavalier Olmas Lurecia, himself. Toilday, 14 Arodus Since we had a number of short duration (~3hr) “rope tricks” at our disposal, we spent the night in another plane (well, four of them for a total of 12 hrs) in the cloakroom, setting guards to peer into the room and give us […]

We held up for the night in the storage room using the ninja eggs to keep us out of sight. I wasn’t sure that using the eggs were necessary but I was proven wrong when the Ninjas opened the door and looked for us during the night. I assume that they did not detect that […]

Moonday, Arodus 13, 4712 Evening Kalsgard With a destination named Ravenscraig it was a safe bet that we would be climbing over sheer rock faces, and (especially given our recent history) probably in the dark, and so we stocked up on things like rope, and potions of Spider Climb and Darkvision and the like. Uksahka […]

Arodus 15, 4712 (Ravenscraeg, early morning) We spent the night holed up in one of the storage rooms. Or rather, in the extra-dimensional space created by destroying the eggshells. It was awkward setting them off among the shelves of wool, cloaks, and furs, but they only last a couple of hours each and we had to make […]
