This should be stickied. But I prefer the SRD at http://www.d20srd.org. It's much easier to navigate, has some non-core OGC (like the variant stuff from UA) and has a lot of goodies- for instance, the monster entries have javascript "links" embedded in the statblock to roll HP, Initiative, attack rolls, damage, saves and skill checks. Also on the site are an Encounter XP calculator, an online "dice bag", and monster and spell filters.

I dunno, I always found it harder to navigate personally.

The link to OoTS seems a little...unnecessary, dosnt it?

But VERY good links. Bookmarked.

EDIT: Knights of the dinner table isnt DnD, its Hackmaster.

Double edit: That hero maker is nifty.

This list was originally posted by me on another site. Funny how I just knew someone was going to comment on it.

Its about RPG games. Close enough.

I had posted this in another thread, but it would certainly work here as well.

Sean Reynold's site (WOTC contributor), with many items, interpretations, monsters, etc.


I also like this site. It is an HTML listing of all 2nd Ed monsters, just in case you wanted to throw a blast from teh past at your PCs.


2006-01-23, 03:23 PM
I'm just going to run down my massive foldr of links, so there may be some duplicates.

Updated 2nd edition creatures.

Lists of everything published by wizards.

My favorite character sheets.

A ridiculously comprehensive and perhaps overly searchable spell database.

A compeltely online character generator, I sue it for specific parts of the process that I don't want to do myself.

An index of all Dragon Magazines

Another index of Dragon.

About time I gave this a bump up.

Frameless version of that SRD. I use it all the time, since Shaw seems to hate the hyperlinked one.

Dice Roller with mail option (useful for rolling stats):

Hey, I like that'un! Its got the format I like, but also has Unearthed Arcana info. Nice!

2006-07-01, 01:26 PM
Here's some I got, not sure if they're repeats and too lazy to hyperlink, but here they are.

Someone somewhere post a LA calculator, Does anyone knows the link? ???

Redblade (http://www.redblade.org) is a reamarkably customizable character generator.

2006-07-13, 10:18 AM
Is this what you were referring to?

2006-07-13, 12:23 PM
Here's a nifty little DM's tool called DM's Familiar (http://www.paladinpgm.com/dmf/). I downloaded it and will be using it for DMing my sessions now that I've got a 6th player added. It's got great reviews and will keep my sessions moving.



2006-07-13, 09:08 PM
Now is there anything like that redblade thing for second edition?

2006-07-13, 10:57 PM
Well, there's Core Rules, but that isn't free. It's also old, but you might be able to find a copy on eBay. There's an expansion for it too, if you can find it.

2006-07-13, 11:35 PM
here's one:

It is hard to navigate, poorly written out, and parts of it are in spanish (It's a spanish NWN site) but they've published non-OGL content! w00t! Free prestige classes, including Telflammar Shadowlord (I've been looking for that for ages).

This is probably super illegal, (I wonder if it's illegal to link to it?) but I think they get away with it since their server is not based in the US.

2006-07-14, 11:54 PM
Hey, that's a pretty cool site adriankas. I don't know if it's illegal or not though. ???

2006-07-16, 11:51 AM
Has anyone mentioned Heroforge and Spellforge? They are Excel spreadsheets used for character and spellbook generation, respectively. I have found both to be very useful, although they are not yet updated for the newer books (e.g., Spell Compendium and PH2).

Download: http://www.nidome.org.uk/Heroforge/

This should be stickied.

-I don't have anything noteworthy to add except perhaps the full version (http://nwn.dasaria.net/gallery/heromachine/heromachine.htm) of the Hero Machine (2.0). Quite nifty, it's got lots of cool options the smaller version doesn't.

2006-11-25, 03:34 AM
Very nice, Tribble. Definently subscribing and checking those out.

I second that :smile:.

2006-11-26, 03:09 AM
Looks like the Kate Monk's Onomastikon (http://www.gaminggeeks.org/Resources/KateMonk) link is broken, or the site is gone...

Edit: looks like IRC Roleplaying Homepage (http://www.home.aone.net.au/irc_rpg/home.htm) is dead too...

2006-11-26, 03:22 AM
Seventh Sanctum (http://www.seventhsanctum.com/) is good for inspiration, especially if you're stuck for an elf name or two.

2006-11-26, 03:34 AM
I don't THINK these have been said:
- http://home.san.rr.com/thegraggs/dnd/Misc/pbcalc.htm Point buy calculator
- http://www.rinkworks.com/namegen/ Name Generator with lots of diffrent options.

2006-11-26, 11:23 AM
The description for Soldarin's ECL calculator is somewhat misleading. It calculates ECL, not CR. CR is more a judgement call and playtesting as there is no real good calculator for it.

Alright, have added links, removed or fixed broken ones, and everything should be good to go.

2007-01-15, 05:40 AM
Just for your information, the Books of Second Edition link is missing: Player's Option: Combat and Tactics, The Complete Book of Humanoids, and The Complete Barbarian's Handbook. Great link, though.

Yeah, also the Psionics Handbook, but most complete site I've run across. Then again I found that link some 6 years ago when I first started playing D&D and haven't played 2nd ed for years :smallwink:
