Fantasy Name Generator By Samuel Stoddard - Version 1.5 One of the perks of creating fantasy stories -- whether by writing a story or game or by role-playing -- is you get to make up the names. Some people relish the task while others are frustrated by it. Some like it but can't seem to create names that are diverse enough. Fantasy Name Generator is a tool that can help you. It can generate an endless number of random names (of people, places, or anything) that would be suitable for use in a fantasy setting. 5 Tabletop RPGs You Can Download For Free [MUO Gaming] Playing games on a computer or console is great fun, but these systems set the rules in code and often are designed to be played with just one person in a room. This makes the social aspect of gaming less important and leaves players at the mercy of the game’s rules. Tabletop role-playing games get around these problems by putting players around the same table.

So less mini contact. Images are printable at A4 size. You should be able to get a 6x6 square and a 6 x 2 tunnel out of each page. D&D Party of One: Solo Adventuring (Part 1) When was the last time you played D&D and it was just one PC and one DM? I’d be amazed if anyone can say that they’ve done this since the release of 4e D&D. The changes that accompanied 4e make solo gaming almost too difficult to be practical.

Dungeon Tile Mapper You've probably seen our Dungeon Tiles previews in our monthly "Previews" article series and may even have scored a copy of these cool tiles. By now you probably have hundreds of cool dungeon designs running around your head. But how can you create these dungeons and share them with your friends? Well a good friend of the D&D website, Randal "Jailoco" Meyer, has created a really cool drag-and-drop dungeon tile tool. And, he's given us a personalized copy for the D&D website as well as a nifty guide on its use. This tool includes all tiles from Dungeon Tiles I, Dungeon Tiles II: Arcane Corridors, Dungeon Tiles III: Hidden Crypts, Dungeon Tiles IV: Ruins of the Wild and will be updated with future sets.

Barrel, Crate, and Sack Generator (v1.0.1) If we've learned one thing from video games, arguable it's this: smash open every container you come across and see what's hidden inside. And when it comes to role-playing games, PCs invariably come across a numberless amount of such containers, stored within tavern basements, temple backrooms, and the dusty corners of ancient dungeons. So when your PCs smash open these containers, what do they contain? How to Play Dungeons and Dragons By Yourself - The Indie Dragon While Dungeons and Dragons is a social game, it is possible to play Dungeons and Dragons by yourself. There may be reasons why you want to play alone. Your friends might not share your enthusiasm for D&D (I’ve been there!), you live in a country/area where D&D isn’t popular or you simply don’t like your D&D group and want to leave. Here are some things to bear in mind when playing by yourself (this article assumes you know how to play D&D):
