Notifications

Normally I dislike it when an application wants to send me notifications on my desktop. But Maptools is the rare exception for me. It might be a few minutes between player posts and responses so I sometimes like to tab over to other things while I wait for the next post. It used to be that the icon ...

The Gelatinous Cube Bard - A D&D Story

Okay I got a story about a crazy character I once had. It was a Gelatinous Cube bard named "WAAAARGH!". Stay with me now. The DM house-ruled it so that my character could be intelligent enough to do well...anything. What's more is that I explained its ability to perform bardic music by saying that i...

Elemental Medallions - (With Mechanics for D&D 3.5e)

Introduction: So a long, long time ago I made up a sort of magical item for Dungeons and Dragons 3.5 edition. These were medallions that would grant their wielders powers over their respective elements. I even made pictures to go along with each type of medallion, along with different variants for ...

Poll: Which Alignment do you Usually Roleplay As?

So I'm curious to know which alignments people typically play over others and to try and get a good idea of this I'm going to go to various forums around the internet and post this straw poll in the hope that I'll get a decent amount of results. Mostly because I'm just curious and I'd like to get so...

Spell: Explosion

Introduction: A long, long while ago I made a dungeon full of magical explosives that would cause characters to be knocked down, blinded, stunned, and deafened in addition to taking fire, force, and sonic damage. The intent was for explosions to be treated somewhat realistically. It made for a VERY...

Re: Chat Logs with Token Portraits

I do this in my campaigns with a custom frame I have players do their in-game chat through. I also use it to post room descriptions and villain dialog. It's integrated with my lib token and has other special needs, but recent changes may allow me to tweak it to use an MT table. It's a part of my li...

Chat Logs with Token Portraits

I tried to check and see if this has already been requested on these forums but I'm fairly sure it hasn't yet. If it has then I'm sorry to bring this up again. But if it hasn't then I'll just get right into it: Basic Idea: The ability to export chat-logs with the token portraits present. Purpose: Mo...

Re: Kaltamorn Regional Map (Teon Supplement)

Haven't looked at the descriptive links but that map is gorgeous! What software did you use to create it? EDIT: Nevermind, you already said photoshop. Doh! These sorts of things remind me that as much as I think I know how to use photoshop & GIMP, I don't really have a clue how to make somethin...

Kaltamorn Regional Map (Teon Supplement)

Introduction: Hello again everyone. I'm back to share a world map that I've been working on for my newest campaign setting known as Teon. This particular map is supposed to represent the Kaltamorn Region specifically. Right now I've got most of the features that I want on it. But since the region i...

Undead with bad smell / frightening presence

One thing that I've noticed is how casually most players treat undead. It seems in our culture undead have become routine aspects of fiction what with how prevalent zombies, vampires, ghosts, and other undead have become. What's more is that most players seem too proud to RP their characters being a...

A Basic Compass Rose

In the process of making a new campaign setting I decided to make my own compass rose. Then I realized that it might be useful for other people in their own maps too. So I'm posting it here in case anyone wants to use it. Enjoy! http://i.imgur.com/yXd6car.png http://i.imgur.com/ymegCxP.png http://i....

Creativity

Link that inspired this topic: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5sEZmMeH96Q You know, this scene got me thinking about the nature of creativity. Here we are each of us making our own story with tabletop games. Sure some people may frown upon them, but what I love is how people make their characters a...

Re: Question about the RNG of Maptool

You can create your own random numbers by modifying the roll function. But what you're experiencing is normal. For example, you can take a bottoms approach where 1d20 is 21 - 1d20. Hey there's an idea. I once had an idea where you roll X number of dice and then roll another dice to randomly select ...

Re: Question about the RNG of Maptool

Jagged wrote:Pretty sure its just using Java's random.


So is this really a coincidence then that we get the same result so many times? Does this ubiquity roll option I've seen on the wiki for coding have some advantage over the normal means of rolling as far as random number generation goes?
