Resource – Roll Advantage Token Maker

This week’s resource is another quick and simple one – a free to use online token maker. For those who are not familiar with the term, when playing RPG games, especially when online, having a token, is the equivalent of having a miniature to represent a character, PC or NPC. This token is then moved around on the screen (or printed off and used as a miniature if your budget is not high).

One major advantage tokens have other miniatures is they are easy to replace if broken or lost. The downside is they don’t feel as “real” but that is not an issue for many people.

Using the site is easy and free to do – The creator does have a patreon, so if you enjoy it, why not throw them a subscription for a while. You literally drag and drop an image onto the page (or upload an image) to start off...

Resource – Role-playing Games Stack Exchange

Todays Resource is Role-playing Games Stack Exchange.

RPGSE is a sub-site of Stack Exchange, a place for questions and answers on a particular subject, such as RPGs, programming, home improvement and more. At the time of posting this, there are approximately 170 communities.

It’s quite easy to use – A question is asked related and answers given – users are subject to a reputation award process. If someone with a high reputation gives you an answer, you can be sure the answer is, if not the correct one, then at least given by someone who is not deliberately trying to mislead you. Other users vote up and down if they agree with the answer or think it is good quality and the “best” ones rise to the top...

Resource – Hemingway Editor

This weeks’ resource is an unusual one – It’s called the Hemingway Editor. For those who don’t know, Ernest Hemingway

As with many of the websites I show you here, I’ll use their own words to tell you what it is about:

What’s the Hemingway Editor All About?

Hemingway makes your writing bold and clear. It’s like a spellchecker, but for style. It makes sure that your reader will focus on your message, not your prose.

Too often, our words are like our thoughts — innumerable and disorganized. Almost any bit of writing could use some cutting. Less is more, etc.

So, the Hemingway Editor will highlight (in yellow and red) where your writing is too dense. Try removing needless words or splitting the sentence into two. Your readers will thank you.

The website version is free to use, but there...

[Resource] – Fast Character Maker

Some people love spending ages creating a character. But often, especially as a GM, you need to come up with a character really quicky – Your players have gone off the beaten track and want to know more about that mysterious person who ultimately has no real impact on your planned plot.

Fast Character Maker can help with this.

to quote from the site – ”

Need a few quick pre-gens for a game convention or organized play group at your local game store?

Your cousin from out of town wants to sit in and join this week’s game?

The party insists on hiring that NPC to join them for the adventure?

That failed stealth check got half the party killed and now you’re all playing back-up reinforcements?

You don’t have time to min/max your way through a character build but want to try something new?

Fast...
