comment How do I manage created content in D&D Character Builder
I've used that to add powers to my characters from another class, but how does it work for custom feats? I'm assuming they don't have an api or scripting support that allows you to actually make your custom feat add a bonus to your attack powers or anything like that.

comment Do any newer D&D versions grant experience for exceptional role-playing?
I can't take full credit for this idea. I got it from someone on Johnn Four's gmmastery mailing list 5-6 years ago.

comment What tools are useful to organize a GM's campaign notes?
I think wikis are hard for most campaigns because, as rjbs said in his answer, most players just aren't motivated enough to put content into it. I can totally see it on the private side though.
