RPTools is a set of five open source programs written in Java designed to assist with managing roleplaying games. They include

MapTool – An online, multiuser, networked, graphical, interactive, programmable virtual tabletop

TokenTool – Create quick and simple consistently sized tokens for use with any digital battlemat that can use PNG images.

CharacterTool – A configurable tool for managing the number-crunching of building and maintaining player characters.

InitiativeTool – Keep track of the flow of encounters

DiceTool – A general-purpose dice rolling application with programmable buttons and extensive customization.

I’ve seen quite a few open source RPG-related projects, but these are really slick looking and are being very actively developed.

  1. I’m going to have to give this a shot. It’s a shame that it’s a client-based app though, I’d love to see this in a more accessible web format that I could just link my players to.
