    Compatible with Open Office and Excel, the Loot Divider is a workbook that allows you to quickly sell treasure and tracks who keeps what. It contains all the items (including magical) from the SRD and Pathfinder RPG, and can be customized with a thousand new items.

    Magical arms and armors can be easily created using magical properties. A video preview is available which gives a good demonstration of the main Treasure! sheet.

    The Loot Divider is the Fast and Easy way to Account for Treasure!

    Welcome to the latest and greatest edition of Pen & Paper Games. Unless this is your first visit here, you have no doubt noticed that a lot of things have changed – both in how things look and how they work. In fact, the core engine of our forums have been updated to an entirely new version of vBulletin, and along with that change, we've also packaged a number of improvements of our own.

    Over the next couple days, we'll post an announcement with an itemized list of some of the major changes. Until then, please feel free to poke around. You'll find enhancements in almost every section, including: member profiles, the player registry, the forum page, social groups, blogs, and even the chat room was updated to the most recent version of FlashChat. So, go forth and explore. If you find any problems -- as there are sure to be with any major deployment like this -- please fire off a PM to me and let me know.

    Enjoy!

    Restless Souls comes to the gaming table with the interesting idea of playing a character who is not quite dead and not quite living either. This thirteen page add-on to your d20 or Pathfinder game is an expansion of the Questhaven campaign world by Rite Publishing, but the content within can easily be adapted to just about any fantasy setting. Within its pages, you will find a new template which will transform any (now dead) creature into a restless soul, along with twenty-two new feats and ten new spells. ...

    Dear One Geek,

    Whether tabletop or LARP, certain folks I game with seem to have more fun bragging about how cool their characters are than actually gaming. They'll drop out of character for extended lengths of time to go on and on about how awesome their stats are, what a great loophole they've found in the rules or what a stud their other characters are/were. It's hard to get them back on track about the game we are playing at that time, and worse yet, they tend to pull others out of character as well.



    What is a polite way to get people to stop playing MyTraits: the Droning and go back to playing whatever it is we'd gathered there to play? ...

    This week's topic comes through a rather circuitous route, so bear with me...

    It starts a month ago, when I spent the first two weeks of December on a writing retreat. The idea was simple. Seclude myself away in an area I find environmentally stimulating (for me, this is means winter storms, grey skies, trees and water, so the North Oregon coast was perfect) for an extended period (long enough for the "just here for a weekend" need to sleep/enjoy the area/get over jet lag to go away) with a specific purpose (revising my novel per some professional advice I'd received on it.) ...
