- Atom Switch, Inc.
- Infinitas DM on Kickstarter now! (Adam screwed up the order of the terms "DM" and "Infinitas")
- Metal Gods of Ur-Hadad zine
- More independent gaming projects than I can remember
Donn doesn't like online gaming because he feels like he has to spend too much time setting these up.
Online gaming tools have to support on-the-fly gaming and improv style
Adam preemptively makes useful macros & conflict maps/mats to improv conflicts
|Adam's Torchbearer conflict map|
Wayne uses Twiddla in hangouts instead
Infinitas DM + a big screen TV laid down with a sheet of acrylic over top = Dan's ideal gaming set up (and Adam plans on making it happen)
Make the things you need for your game, share the things you make. Basic DIY ethics.
None of us had used Fantasy Grounds or MapTool or any of the other Roll20 alternatives, Dan has reservations about complete rule integration in Fantasy Grounds. Adam doesn't appreciate the $$$ barrier to entry.

Wayne & Donn are curmudgeonly about pdfs. Everyone prefers books.
Wayne talked about random generator websites:
- Adam mentioned Abulafia
- Rememberdismove http://henrycjc.com/rememberdismove/dungeon.cgi?rooms=10
- Last Gasp Grimoire
- VHS Title Generator http://www.memento-mori.com/vhs/
Donn brought up 3D printing for minis
HeroForge (but actual minis are cheaper)
Adam talked about 3D modelling with Google SketchUp
Donn says that using music in games is good at the beginning of sessions, but can be ignored as you start to get into stuff (his Sound Cloud stuff can be found here: https://soundcloud.com/pollyworg )
Adam mentioned TableTopAudio.com
Music was a point of contention
Obviously, Google Drive is a thing
Adam has been using his iPad a lot
Trello app for smart stuff (hierarchical note storing, can add pictures!)
