I write computer software for a living, mostly in Perl. I give away lots of it. Share and enjoy!

In my spare time, I tell my daughter stories about Batman, read books, watch movies, play video games, and try desperately to play D&D even though nobody I know wants to.

comment What software is available for virtual table tops?
I've recently come to use Gametable, too. The feature set, in my opinion, is pretty small, and that's a big plus. There isn't much to learn, and it's the most like using a tabletop mat that I've seen. I don't feel like I need to do a lot of prep work, I just draw the things I need as I need them, with the "pen."

comment How can I improve one-off play with paragon or epic tier characters?
I happen to love flow charts, so that suggestion hits home with me. I'll probably make one much simplified from the one you provide, but it's a great suggestion. Thanks very much!

comment How can I improve one-off play with paragon or epic tier characters?
Yeah, I had originally meant to note that I realize that it's much, much easier to understand your character's powers if you grow into them level by level. That's why I specified one-shots. Your other two ideas are good, but I fear my players might not be interested in using up free time prior to the game, especially making characters, since they don't have DDI.

comment What systems exist with rules that fit on a single page (or so)?
Thanks! A better link to Sherpa might be panix.com/~sos/rpg/sherpa.html or panix.com/~sos/rpg/s2.html which I ended up finding via Google.
