Overviews Given that this is mostly political, instead of tracking all the trivial ones, I would summarize general overviews for a day, or week, or month, depending on the scale of time you're working on. Tracking all the minor ones seems like a lot of work for little payoff, and odds are just as likely you're going to end up with a lot of situations ...

Check out nanDECK. It's a nifty software specifically for laying out decks of cards or sheets of counters using a relatively easy scripting language (and optionally a CSV or Excel file for the card data). The tutorials are easy to follow, and highlight the features well. It's for Windows only, but I've successfully run it under Wine on Linux (though the ...

Hero Lab is the premier character generation software for Pathfinder (and a variety of other game systems). It's commercial and costs more than PCGen but it's also way more usable. You have to buy content packs, and it can get expensive to get them all, but they have the content available for all new Paizo books (and some third party) available at or very ...

The 5E digital tools are currently in beta and are called Codename: Morningstar.

I'd advise you to wait and stick to traditional planning for now. Tho Masterplan is an excellent tool for mapping out your campaign and registering plot-related data, you have to take into account that 5th Edition isn't officially out yet, and it's nearly impossible to develop a software for it on its current state, since we don't even have Monster Data ...

I answered a related (but more generalist) question here. My solution is very minimalist since you have to enter the empty character sheet by yourself, but this allow you to have many homebrew rule change if you want without breaking anything. On the other hand, the rules are not implemented so it's really like virtual paper rather than a software (although ...

On Brazil, we have two tools for that: RRPG Firecast and 2ic. Not really IRC clients, but they are indeed desktop tools. Both are really similar in functionalities but way different on visuals. Both tools are desktop clients. They have a room directory, on which all the "tables" are listed, complete with a brief game description, a status (accepting new ...
