Hm... seems like you're using IE. Can I suggest a better browser, such as Firefox, Chrome or Opera? There are other choices too.

If you wanna stick with IE, or can't switch, I'll warn you right now, while most of this site should work with IE, stuff might come up buggy, so you might not enjoy it as much...

Kalajel's free games and resources 2: The sequel

Jul 22, 2020 11:36 pm
Hello everyone,

I was asked on the Discord to clean up my resources and free games thread (still available here), and sort the links by categories. I figured a brand new thread was the best solution for it. So this will become the new free resources and games thread. I'll still use the old one and sort through the links there to classify them here, but eventually, the old thread will slip into obscurity (or I might delete it, I don't know...). So without further ado, let's start this (thought the next posts will most likely be placeholders for now)!

Table of Contents

Free Games. (RPGs)

SRDs.

Character Sheets.

Scenarios.

Online Dice Rollers
A bit of a joke on my last thread... Sure, you won't need 'em here, but what if you need to game in real life and forgot your dice (okay I'm stretching a bit here...). Basically, I'd rather not need them and still list them here than not have them listed here and sorely miss them when I do actually need them...

ROLZ. (and so it begins...)

hamete virtual dice server.

WotC's official D&D Dice Roller. (for 3.X only?)

Zero Dice online dice roller.

Downloadable/Online Programs
Some people have created programs to help with some aspects of a game or another, or just RPGs in general. Such programs you can download or use online will be listed here.

Utilities for dungeon masters.

Beyond Tabletop.

D20 Pro.

RPG Map Editor 2.

Sourceforge. This is a site full of programs to download, so obviously, a few people made some for RPGs. Simply make a search with "pen and paper RPG" or "tabletop RPG" to find a bunch of useful programs. A similar thing could also be said of github.com... Software.Informer is yet another similar site...

Mythic Table, open source VTT.

Gone but not Forgotten
It is the nature of the internet that some site dies. While I can use the waybackmachine internet archive to repair some broken links, others will have never been saved in this archive. Perhaps other types of internet archives exist out there which could have those sites saved, but I do not know of any... Basically, this post will be used to list dead links, just in case someone is a bit more internet savvy than I...

Edit: Turns out there is another internet archive out there. Archive-It which searches using keywords instead of URLs. For exemple, I've made a search with Dungeonslayers here.

Suggestions and Comments
From this point on, posts are for your own suggestions, comments, or to warn me that such and such link is dead... I might post here as well from time to time to inform you of any update. I'd really like this thread to be a bit like a wiki where everyone could maintain it, but that might be outside of the site's capabilities... So the best option will simply be to allow you to post from this point on.

Nicely done Kalajel!
Jul 23, 2020 12:39 am
Great job, man. I'm going to be sure to bookmark this.

Here's a link to a list of SRDs for many popular systems.
Aug 6, 2020 1:38 am
So yeah, so far I've noticed that in my old thread I had a few duplicate links already. Going well so far...
Aug 6, 2020 12:38 pm
A suggestion would be to create a "Table of Contents" with links in the first post. That way you can just click what sort of thing you're looking for and go straight to that post.
Sep 10, 2020 12:39 am
Two first page of my old thread have been transferred here. Going well so far, though I did found a few more duplicate links...
