D&D Encounter Helping Websites
« on: April 16, 2018, 01:42:54 pm »
I came across these two websites this last weekend as I was planning for my game, and I thought I would share them with you:

Kobold Fight Club: The first rule of KFC is "Yip yip!" - http://kobold.club/ - This is an online implementation of the DMG encounter builder. I found this SUPER helpful, because it does all the math for you. Add in your characters, and either randomly generate an encounter, or build one, being able to zero in on an encounter toughness with a mix of monsters. This made my encounter building for my upcoming game way easier as I compared options, etc. It also has options to save encounters and parties, and even run them, but they also pointed me to....

Improved Initiative Combat Tracker for 5E - http://improved-initiative.com/ - This site is a great tool for tracking combat, reminding me of my old "Turnwatcher" app for 3.0 or "Combat Manager" app for Pathfinder. It has the ability to input your own monsters, or expand existing ones, and then download and save all your edits. Be aware, however, that if you input items or save encounters or parties and then log into the app using a patreon account, your saved data will "disappear." You can get it back and merge it by simply logging out downloading, and then logging in and uploading. Just either use it always without a login or always logged in. The author it actively developing and seems to have great ideas on how to improve the site.

Hope this is helpful to everyone.
