More D&D links for dungeon masters

Written by Expy - Published on July 24, 2007

How could I forget Myth Weavers?

Here’s a website I like: myth-weavers.com. It has 2 features I really like.

1. Character sheet sharing.
That’s where my friends and I share and store our character sheets. The sheets are easily customizable, even for items and abilities that are “homebrewed”. You can give access to your character sheets to other users (your DM). It’s great because I always have access to my players’ characters. Very useful if I want to set them a trap but also make sure that they have at least one out.

2. Dungeon, Town, and NPC stats generator.

It is based on the generator I use the most: Jamis Buck’s. But Myth Weavers took it up a notch by making the design better. It has good design in general – which is rare in the online RPG community. I know I’m rambling about the design issue, but I swear someone will have an epilepsy attack from one of these sites before long.

Keep making suggestions of online tools – for DMs or players.

Meet Expy The Red Dragon

Expy is the mascot for DungeonMastering.com and the real mastermind behind Expy Games. He likes to hoard treasure, terrorize neighbors, burn down villages, and tell white dragon jokes..

No matter how fearful the legends claim dragons are, they always end up being defeated in 5 rounds by adventuring parties they encounter. That’s what dragons are – experience points for the heroes in your Dungeons & Dragon party. And this mascot is no different, hence the name Expy.

    and me who thought that all your adventure where homemade

  2. Yax says:

    Well, all my adventures are home made but I get my inspiration – especially my maps – from somewhere.

    Hmm Maps….you know I quite often cheat

    Heaven forfend that I admit that out loud but I do.

    I have a humungous library of old adventures from 2e. They are often freely available on line…legally of course, none of this downloading them from BitTorrent of course.

    So I take out an adventure that I like a dungeon map… (Scan it if necessary) then I often even borrow the descriptions of the rooms.

    Finally I fill in the 3.5e monster/trap and other details to fit my story idea. Twisting the origional descriptions as I see fit.

    Bobs your uncle

    You have no idea how many times I have recycled dungeons out of the caves of chaos…just to see if anyone notices

    They never do LOL

    Want the maps of the Dwarven Delve under the City of Ptolus?
    Oddly enough much of them have been prepared using the maps I already have from Caves of Chaos.

    Just cut up reorientated, and redescribed. Man it looks so professional…but is basically a CHEAT

    If I want a different sort of map, i just go find one with google.

    Want a good castle?
    http://www.greatcastlesofwales.co.uk/harlech_plan.htm

    No point in making up something that aleardy exists.

    WotC have a great site for pinching maps from…
    http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/arch/mw

    But I really like just finding things on google…it is much more satisfying…and suits my RESEARCH first philosophy.

    For a bit of fun easy to find, another castle

    Oh and there is always someone who will help you out, and bend a few rules…so you don’t have too.

    That castles of Wales link is priceless! Thank you! It’s a good idea to use real castles and copy them into our fantastic D&D world.

  5. Gryphon says:

    So now I am rooting through the WotC site to answer the thread about MMV and I noticed Castle Ravenloft images are available

    http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/ag/20061031a

    Man that lot are a brilliant set for free.

  6. Yax says:

    That is indead a brilliant set. I knew they had a bunch of free tools but I had never spotted that Ravenloft one. Thanks. I owe you a beer.

  7. Gryphon says:

    Never a good idea to threaten me with a beer, because for me beer comes in kegs and I only drink one at once.

    So I might just take you up on it and while there is always the chance I might have a limit…I keep trying to find it….just don’t get me on shorts…man does that get me smashed.

  8. Lilith says:

    There’s also my website, DM Tools. You’ll find a <b>huge</b> selection of stat blocks as well as encounter and treasure generators.
