Do you know any programs that help you play RPG? What are these? what do you think about them? Do / how often do you use them? Do you use them during the game or only for preparation before the session?

The list of my tools is:
EBoN - The Everchanging Book of Names - name generator
PCProfiler - Character card for D&D
Cartographer - a program for creating maps
Blazon - coat of arms design program
and not yet tested in practice:
dungeon, treasure and NPC generators.

The EBoN has proven itself more than once, not twice. Both of my official nicknames have their source in it. In PCProfiler, I made my character cards a few times, conveniently printing it later and obtaining the necessary data in a clear form. The cartographer is an almost legendary program. Its capabilities and failure rate are well known to some of us. Blazon is amazing with the simplicity of its shapes, but it works well for the overall outline of a coat of arms. If we do not care about aesthetics, it does its job well.

Google Earth !! : D Perfect for sessions in the present day. It has everything any picky MG needs. One big map of our world with routing and distance measuring function ^^.

There are also a few of these other D&D programs that I saw with Mietek. One for creating random NPCs, and the other is a dungeon generator I think :). Quite respectable and useful.

Where can you get the Cartographer from? Because with such a name it will be rather difficult to google it ...

It will be the fastest ... The whole is probably not even 3MB. On Gehh, the link is probably buried somewhere, or on the TES PBF ...

I would also like to ask: D
Would you like me to put you out of your misery, before I put you out of your misery?
