A Canadian geek, finishing off a chemistry degree. I typically hang around TeX.SX as I like the community and learn things by reading the questions. I'm also active on RPG.SX and History.SX.

comment Is there a way to give animals fine manipulators at low level?
I...what? Why on earth did you make a crafter with no fine manipulators when you rolled up the character?

Heroquest is a board game, Runequest is BRP

Actually I find fast systems = more lethal: Combat in say, Call of Cthulhu is way more lethal then say, 3e through 4e D&D, and is also far faster. GURPS combat is way more crunchy then D&D, but you only get a couple shots before you kneel over.

comment Software for On-the-fly-mapping
I had a freind look over them since he is doing something similar to what I want to do, but with old computer RPGs. We both think pyromancers.com/dungeon-painter-online is exactly what we are looking for: You just click to add rooms, hallways, stairwells, etc. No fuss, etc.

Sorry, which second link above? There are lots of them, and many places you could be counting from: Can you clean up your answer to make a clear list, including the one from your comments? Thank you.

Nice! I was thinking of this more for an old school 'you map it, I don't tell you if the map is right' game, but run online as my local group is more story based. This would let the mapper upload the maps to show other people without having to scan it.

Dunjinni is a bit slow as well I think, it is again a tool to make nice pretty maps, not on the fly 'which way is out' maps.

I'd prefer something that gives a nice grid, as it is then easier to see when you might have missed a hidden room or such, and you have less issues of 'opps I drew that room too big'.

Pyromancers looks perfect. If someone hooks me up with a non-web tool I'll probably move to that, but you get the accept until then.

Maptool is far too slow. You have to carefully align each tile. I'm talking like 'click squares to make room' type of software. Maptools is for making pretty maps, not on-the-fly ones.

comment History of Hell and the Arch Devils and Demon Lords
It however formed the basis of the politics that came after, so I would count it as still relevant. I met the author once.

comment Resources for 3D printable RPG props?
@Philip I am aware of that: I took a 4th year uni polymer chemistry course last year. However I didn't know you could print with them: A lot of the better ones get more complicated to create. Have you considered buying lego or metal props then attaching those to the printed miniature?
