Coming Soon: Stand-Alone AD&D 1st Ed Character Generator

Only decent 1e Character Generators I could find were online, and of the three I bookmarked, 2 disappeared in the last year as sites went down.  So, I decided to code my own, with the added benefit of brushing up on coding that I hadn’t touched in a decade or more.

Kickstarter: Fog Dice Tower

THIS AMUSES ME GREATLY!   Absolutely useless, and if it wasn’t $99 + shipping, I would order the Dwarven one.   The creativity of some people never ceases to amaze me.   Unfortunately, the kickstarter is a bit pricey for something I’d show off once or twice at a game session and then stop using except as a rolling tower.

New D&D == Munchkin RPing becomes the system

A friend that plays 4th ed emailed this to me. It is from quite a few years back, which would place the author in the 4e era of ‘D&D for those that never wish to lose.’  Read the blog post at THIS LINK, then my responses.
