  1. Hi folks. I am creating cross-platform map-making software (for Windows and macOS), suitable for creating both print-resolution maps and lower-resolution maps suitable for use with virtual tabletop software. It's called MapForge, and it will be sort of a spiritual successor to Dundjinni, but with a greater focus on stitching maps together from pre-existing map tiles and then customizing the resulting map (with additional decorations, etc.) to suit the GM's particular needs. MapForge should appeal to GMs of face-to-face game sessions and to those using any VTT software, who want to create their own slick-looking battlemaps to visually enrich their RPG sessions (in any genre), but who find existing mapping programs (including image-editing tools such as Gimp and Photoshop) too intimidating/confusing/expensive. I am currently running a Kickstarter campaign to fund the program's development. The software will be priced to be very accessible/affordable, probably $30 or so, but it's just $27 during the Kickstarter campaign. And to help offset the cost even more, there will be at least 9 free content Add-Ons for it, covering various genres. MapForge will also offer a free level of use, so having a license won't be required to make maps with it. Version 1.0 of MapForge should be ready to go on sale in July 2017. Shortly after that, MapForge will also have the ability to generate random "dungeon" layouts via Donjon. I hope you will all take a minute to check out the project, play around with the downloadable prototype, and if you like what you see, tell your GM friends about it. 
 Thanks! --Hernan (aka Heruca) PS: The campaign funded on day 1, and is now at 475% of the funding goal, with ~1330 backers and 9 days to go. All the Stretch Goals have already been unlocked.
  2. Anyone who may have missed out on the MapForge Kickstarter campaign...You can now get in on the MapForge Indiegogo campaign. There are two new videos to check out, even if you already backed the Kickstarter. And the MapForge Beta is available for download, so you can take the software for a spin.
  3. About this project Welcome Dwarves and Elves, Gouls and Ghasts, Witches and Wizards, Hackers and Cyborgs, Players and Game Masters. Welcome to the Realmware Kickstarter for Tabletop Tools! We hope you found yourself here safely and without hassle as we talk about how we can help make your tabletop roleplaying experience as immersive and enjoyable as possible. What we are offering today are two approaches to our goal in trying to achieve the optimum roleplaying experience, both of which were born from our own experiences as avid players and game masters ourselves. The first is with our Software, creating a one place, easy to use, few clicks as possible, modular design for all of your Game Masters needs in running the smoothest session possible. The second is with our Hardware, platforms put together and hand crafted by the Realmware team in Australia to fulfill yours needs at the table and to provide a new experience as tabletop gamers. All products in both the Software and Hardware were created by our small team of passionate players for ourselves at first and then we thought to extend it to the community. It is with this Kickstarter that we hope to expand our hopes, goals and passion to the rest of you. Software Masters Toolkit Masters Toolkit Our one stop shop for the use of virtual supplements to your adventure! The Masters Toolkit is our primary platform for launching all Software in the future and is split into five major sections, or modules, that all work together to make your tabletop experience not only immersive but reliably unbroken by tinkering with our system mid game if need be. Cartographer Cartographer The First of our modules, the Cartographer is our battle-map creator and builder for those sticky situations that your players will inevitably get themselves into. It is set up with a pre-existing grid for quick snapping tiles and contains a free hand palette tool for complete artistic freedom. Standout features of the Cartographer: All tiles and objects are digitally painted by one of our lovely artists on the team, Edina. All tiles are capable of snapping to the grid for easy placement or manual for creative freedom Map size is only dictated by device performance with minimal use of resources to accommodate for bare bone systems. Free hand palette tool if your inner artist takes you Maps are printable to A4 sheets or can be exported to image files or PDF Developed with a lighting and hue engine with realistic shadows Weather effects and cloud shadows Animated elements such as fire and running water Most of you will have noticed that a lot of these features are not static and are constantly changing making it unsuitable for printed out sheets. The more dynamic features are present for the use of the program on some of our Hardware, most specifically our Atlas Digital where the focus is to be using the Cartographer during game play, for more information on the Hardware scroll down. Soundscape Soundscape Our second module for the Software, our Soundscape is where we place all of the immersion building, sound based functions of the Masters Toolkit. This includes music, ambient sounds and special effects all geared and made to function with as little effort as possible for the user. Standout features of the Soundscape: All completely original works by Dante' and guest artists All songs can be customised by independently controlling the volume of each instrument Ambient sounds and tones to generate atmosphere Programmable ambiance to keep it varied enough to not get in the way of gameplay Special Effects sounds for when you really want to hit something with a sword All music, ambiance and special effect sounds are designed and placed within environmental, location and mood categories for ease of access Soundscape can be easily accessed from any part of the Software for quick changes whilst in play Custom playlists can be made to create your own categories, unique to your story Sounds can be linked to objects in the Cartographer. Friends and Foes The third module of the Master's Toolkit is an appendix of go to monsters and NPC's for your adventure. Standout features of Friends and Foes: Content specific to roleplaying systems Randomly generated NPC's can be saved here all entries can be edited if needed The Antiquity The fourth Module is similar to Friends and Foes but it's entirely for created items and notes associated to them. Standout features for the Vault items created can be saved here all entries can be edited if need be
  4. Hi all! Wasn't sure where to drop this topic so, Off-topic it is! Several years ago during D&D 4E, I started using a campaign management software called MasterPlan. Even after Wizards slapped them with a C&D for datamining, it was an invaluable tool. While I am no longer running campaigns (ok, at least not at the moment), I shared my discovery with my brother who's a budding writer who found it invaluable for keeping track of characters, story arcs and such. Being free, MasterPlan went the way of the dodo and I'm wondering if anyone here might be using any sort of campaign management software? The system doesn't really matter as he's not using any rule-sets. As his first book is due out in May (yay!) and he's in talks with publishers for 2 sequels, he's not keen on wikis and other open platforms, so something that installs locally would be preferred. Many thanks in advance!

    Creating videos

    So Kuro is recording video! So cool. In his WIP thread, a side discussion about shooting video came up, so I thought it might be nice to have a thread on the topic. Recording, equipment, software, setups; there is a lot that goes into making videos! I did find a thread on software from a couple years back, so there's a starter on that part of the process, but it would be nice to have the different technical aspects in one spot.
  6. Funded. 15 days left. Has anyone used the d20 stuff? https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/magehand/d20pro-unlimited-virtual-tabletop?ref=category

    IP.Board

    What does everyone think about the Reaper's IP.Board forums? Especially compared to other forums you have utilized? Personally I've just been impressed by the overall "cleanliness" and feel, and was thinking of converting my own site from WordPress to IP.Board+CMS. However I'm wondering if the average user feels its as easy to use as I think it is. Additionally does anyone know if other parts of the Reaper site are also using the IP software? Or are they using something else for the other parts of the site?
  8. Hi, Years ago I had some of the DOOM miniatures. The classic PC game really changed my life and I still play it today online with people. I used to own the Baron of Hell, Lost Soul, Doom Marine, Cyberdemon, and a couple of others. Most of them are now lost or were sold. :( I am looking to build a complete set of them now. They can be painted, primed, or just plain as I intend to have the entire set painted. If you have any that you are interested in selling, please contact me. email is jeffwirz@hotmail.com Thanks again! I know they hard to find so am hoping someone here has some they would like to sell. Please let me know if this is the right area of the forum.
