d20pro Promo Video

Posted by Tintagel on March 12th, 2010

Here’s a promo video that I just put together for d20pro, a virtual tabletop software that I’m helping design.  We needed a sort of kiosk video to show at conventions and on our website.  Something catchy, fast, and energetic.

Power Cards Video

I placed a short overview video of my powercard templates on Youtube.  It should provide some how-to instructions for those that purchased it as well as give undecided folks some incentive to buy.  🙂

Powercard Errata

Posted by Tintagel on October 26th, 2008

A couple of errata to the latest Templates (v 2.0):

  1. The Wizard Heroic At-Will background is incorrect.
  2. The Feats background watermark is too strong and makes reading the text difficult.

4E Powercards Update

Posted by Tintagel on October 25th, 2008

I have made some major changes to my 4e Powercard template.  Some new features include:

  • Support for labels, so you can write your own numbers for attack and damage values – this is optional.
  • Pull-down menus for all icons and for action types, range, and labels
  • streamlined code – tightened things up – removed need for 2 directories
  • New Paragon and Epic variations of all cards, plus 2 misc colors.  Total of 11 variations per class.

This new version should make entering the data MUCH faster, but it WILL invalidate some of the information in your existing cards.  You will need to manually update some of that content, I am afraid.

However, I have some of the cards already updated, and within the week, I will update all of my MSE files at my website to level 30.  That way, you shouldn’t have to re-enter any data for core PHB classes.   If you previously purchased cards from me, simply email me and I will get you an updated file.

Action Point!

Posted by Tintagel on October 17th, 2008

We’ve been using my 4E Powercards in my campaign and so far the players love them.  In fact, they want cards for all sorts of game mechanics, like Action Points (which are pretty much an Encoutner power).  As an homage to the great post on EN World.

Anyways, here it is. If you want my full powercard template so that you can make your own, visit my powercard page!

Rise of the Runelords in 4E

Posted by Tintagel on September 25th, 2008

I’ve started my new campaign and am running Paizo’s Rise of the Runelords, converting it to 4E as I go. I will using a lot of the content from Paizo’s message boards, plus conversion information from Scott’s Tales from the Rusty Dragon – a blog dedicated to the 4E conversion of this Adventure Path.

I will be hosting most of my conversion and campaign materials on my 4E Google Site.  If anyone wants to contribute to the Fan-made content, leave a comment below.  Note that you must have a Gmail account to edit the content on Google Sites.

H1 Maps Scanned

Posted by Tintagel on July 6th, 2008

Well, I bought H1, and I had to make some scans in order to get the maps into d20pro. I have all of the maps done so far except for the 2nd level, and that should be done this weekend.

I posted them on my Mad Mapper site, if anyone wants them. I’ve stitched together the poster maps and re-created the whole Level 1 map from various scans in the book. I also Photoshopped the notes and keys out of the maps (like miniature placement and such) so the player’s wouldn’t be tipped off.

Hopefully, some of you other Virtual Tabletop users will find some use for these. They might be high enough resolution to print too.

Virtual Tabletop: d20pro

Posted by Tintagel on July 5th, 2008

If you all have not seen d20pro yet (www.d20pro.com), you really should hop over there and download a trial license. It’s a simple and powerful virtual tabletop software that lets you play face-to-face or online D&D. D20pro is one of the best-kept secrets for D&D software.

It supports special abilities (at will, per encounter, per day, and charged). It has full support for attacks, including multiple attack routines, damage, and additional attacks due to Base Attack Bonus. it also has a robust effects system that tracks almost every modifier out there, plus ability score penalties and durations. Even better, you can save effects for use later. No more headaches from tracking rage, haste, bard song, bless, prayer, bull strength, and Prot Evil (just to name a few of the ones flying at our table) – oh yeah, and Fly! LOL

d20pro doesn’t ship with content, but it’s very easy to insert your own.  I’ve been collecting portraits from various sources for my own personal use, but I am happy to share my own image gallery and a map or two:

First, the character portraits: all 2,183 of them! YES you read that right. Unzip them and place the folders into your \d20Pro\dm\res\CTR folder.


Next, two sample adventures: Return of the Burning Plague, and the first chapter to Expedition to Castle Ravenloft, for 3.5 D&D. Unzip, then open d20pro, click the Map button (lower right) and choose Import. Then choose the two .d20 files.

If you intend to use d20pro for 4th Edition play (it’s natively a 3.5 product), then check out the 4th edition survival guide on the d20pro wiki: http://wiki.d20pro.com/page/4th+Edition+Survival+Guide

Enjoy, and let me know if you have any questions!
