A Beginner's Primer to CharOp. > 4e Character Optimization

The boards aren't the only place to discuss CO. Feel free to join us in ##4eCo on If you don't have an IRC client, there's also the browser interface at Channels=##4eCO It's a great place to hang out, meet some of the regulars and fine-tune ideas or ask questions. There are a lot of abbreviations and jargon used here, but don't let that scare you. Regular posters such as myself and the handbook writers frequently refer to things such as NADs or PrP or DSCS. Despite the numerous wealth of suggestions you can be given, and the number of complete builds that often get posted here, this is not the place to come expecting someone to build a character for you. Just because this is a commonly viewed board, does not mean it is a generic one. If your thread does not relate to the Optimization of a character in some way, please do not start it. 1.) 2.) 3.)

Tool (C. Character Name Generator Never again suffer the indignity of an elf named “Melf”, a bartender named “George”, or a mysterious unnamed stranger in town. The D&D Name Generator creates countless names for your heroes or NPCs, specific to their gender, race and class -- including titles and honorifics!. Simply fill in the form below, or use the preset defaults, and click the "Generate Name" button to produce names for all sorts of characters. Is the character male, female, or ungendered? Warforged are the only race that normally are ungendered, though other races have names that are common to both men and women. What is your character's race? The name generator only produces names for races from the PHB and PHB II and a few other sources.

What is your character's class? What is your character's background? Is your character primarily seen as a commoner, a noble, or an adventurer? How famous is your character?

On Saturday, I tried to run my Stormhaven campaign session from my iPad, and I’ll have to give the experience mixed reviews.

In general, I was happy with the iPad’s responsiveness and with the ability to use a small handheld device instead of needing table space for my laptop. One of my key tools, though, failed for reasons I still do not understand, which dragged the experience down for me. First, let’s talk about those tools. I have been using my laptop as a DM tool for quite some time. Most recently, my primary tool has been MasterPlan —if I prep and run a session using MasterPlan, I hardly need any other tool except for iTunes (to play background music).

For the iPad experiment, I entered my adventure notes in DEVONthink Pro Office on my MPB and shared the database using DT’s built-in web sharing service. Or so I thought. I’m sad to report that DEVONthink, or the combination of DEVONthink and mobile Safari, let me down big time.
