Kickstarter is a GO!

We're up everyone, please hop over to Kickstarter and check out our campaign. If nothing else watch our video and make fun of our terrible acting, poor camera work, and abysmal editing.

Thanks for looking!

This week I’d like to get your thoughts on some additional RPGsmith Screens

Party Screen – The player view of the other members in the group. From here you can see high level stats (GM selected) and gain quick access to other player interactions such as Inspection, Trade, and Message.

Random Tables – This section while simplistic in appearance can be very powerful. GMs can create, sort, and group random table information in a friendly format for quick access. Like all tiles in the app these can be re-positioned, re-sized, & colored to suit your preferences.

Character (Mobile) – Many of you have asked what the mobile version looks like. Here is a shot of the Character screen re-sized to display on a mobile device.

Character Screen (D&D) – Another frequent request is to see ulterior versions of the Character sheet. Here is a possible configuration of a character sheet for 5e. Again, like all aspects of RPGsmith, this is customizable by the GM through a simple, intuitive interface.

Next Friday (December 18th 2015) we will be launching our Kickstarter to raise funding to get this made. Please help us out by spreading the word and of course pledging. Thank you!

Hello,
As always I’m looking for more feedback on some new RPGsmith screen designs.

Inspection – Used by Players to see visible characteristics and visible items on other PCs and NPCs
Trade – Interface for trading items and currency with other players.
Item Details – It’s aptly named, details of a given item.

Also, for those interested, we have a Kickstarter planned to launch on the 18th, if you'd like to help us make sure we get this made and get a big discount in the process this is your chance.

Thank you for looking ~David

Stay Tuned, A Lot More to Come! ~David

What is RPG Smith?
Running a Table-Top RPG takes a lot of effort from players and the Game Master alike. What if there was a tool that could stream-line and automate much of the “non-game” aspects that come with gaming?

What if there was a tool that could;
• Keep track of all items given to player characters
• Help pass notes between players, the GM, and each other
• Record and display character information in a manner that I want to see it
• Allow players to inspect characters, both PCs and NPCs, to see visible characteristics and items
• Allow players to trade or give items to each other
• Provide a store interface PCs could use to purchase and sell items collected in their adventures
• Manage combat by tracking order and insert monsters or other combatants on the fly
• Automatically create unique and/or custom monsters complete with inventory, special attacks and other details
• Track spell usage and availability
• Record abilities or skills associated with a character
• See and associate Effects or Buffs with Characters and Monsters
• Create and execute custom dice configurations for common roll combinations
• Access random tables to quickly obtain and inject details into the campaign

That’s what we’re building, this and a ton of other features too numerous to mention. Customizable for virtually any game system, usable on any device (computer, tablet, mobile), and available to use anywhere (in-person or playing remotely). RPGSmith will reduce your prep time, maximize your play time, and revolutionize the way you game.
