So, I have played D&D (and other RPG rules) off and on for a long time, and now have boys of an age that I could DM for them and have some good father/son/nerdy time. I have never DMed myself. I have played a couple of times where the DM used Masterplan, and I have to say they have run far more smoothly than when not using it. (Not to say that it's a requirement but it certainly seems to smooth out the mechanics of encounters and the use of a map in battle has made it a lot easier.)
In light of seeing this program in practice, I have decided that I will try DMing with this program. I have a DDI account, and now I'm wondering what my next steps in using Masterplan are. Is it possible to import player sheets as well? What about existing encounter libraries, do those exist somewhere?
Update: I found a loader on codeplex: http://compendiumimport.codeplex.com/
