WTF: Weather generator

Weird Tools Files #3: Weather Generator

A lot of factors make a D&D game better. Personally I am the most satisfied when a player tells me: “Hey! You described the wind conditions very well. I loved it.”

Seriously. Who needs a weather generator?

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.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!!! I don’t really know much about D&D so i can’t put any valuable input to your blog but keep up the good work i’ve never seen anything like this before :)

    I just tried the weather tool and I found a dream job. I’d like to be the one programming useless tool for wizards please. What’s the next one they’ll do, trees and plant generator, mushroom generator, sunburn generator. I coudl continue forever but I don’t want to give them all my ideas.

    I don’t think the weather generator is from WOTC. The barrel, sack and crate generator was.

  4. Pal Mercy says:

    isnt great that the worst tool ever was designed by wizard? that barrel stuff is funny and sad at the same time.

    They designed the worst tool ever?

    I sense a challenge!

  6. Yax says:

    I have no doubt that the Slack & Hash crew – Phil is one of them – can come up with a tool that’s just as useless. But can it be topped?

  7. Kurtis says:

    Of course it can, just make a Horse (S%$T) Generator so the pc’s can figure out how to pick it up, lol.

  8. Cat Skyfire says:

    I rather like the generator. Why not let the weather be it’s own problem? “You’re attacked by a group of brigands…in the rain. -1 to both sides due to slipperyness…”

    This is useful to me. My players actually find knowing the weather and temperature useful. They think it makes the game more alive to have weather and seasons happening so I track that sort of stuff fairly close.
