  2. BJ’s missing comment! (Weird bug.)

    Here are some of the tools we discussed in this episode.

    Maptools virtual table top java program.

    Vegisama campaign framework for Maptools.

    Iplay4E for play-by-post character organization and tracker.

    Orokos for online dice rolling and auditing for play-by-post campaigns.

    TTop RPG is like a lightweight version of Maptools for running online campaigns.

    Obsidian Portal is great campaign tracker and can be used for running play-by-post campaigns.

    I’ve played a lot of games on as well. Some excellent players and games there. Some really weird games too in odd systems.
