Pathfinder On Your Laptop!
Thursday, September 27, 2007
There's a lot to love about pen-and-paper RPGs. Sitting around a table with your friends... telling stories... rolling dice... sweating with tension or laughing yourself sick over nothing but the combined power of your imaginations. In fact, frequently the only part that isn't fun is the actual pen-and-paper part of it: the ragged character sheets, or the frantic searches through books to see if that's actually how the spell works.
Now at last there are not one, but two computer programs that can make your time at the gaming table less work and more play. Both HeroLab from Lone Wolf Development and RPGXplorer offer you a wealth of searchable, graphically-interfaced information at your fingertips. Build and update your character with just clicks of a mouse, manage your inventory, search a massive rules database, or create new game content, all in seconds.
Now are you ready for the best part? Both HeroLab and RPGXplorer have been licensed to incorporate Pathfinder content into their products. Yes! Owners of either of these products will be able to download free data sets that include all of the crunch from Pathfinder to help your game run that much smoother. Just visit the company's websites, or click here for RPGXplorer's downloads for Pathfinder #1 and the Player's Guide.
The future is now!
