DM Genie - Software for 3e RPGs

DM Genie - Software for 3e RPGs

EXE File

Make your games faster and more fun by letting the computer do the math!

DM Genie is a complete software solution for Game Masters and players of the Third Edition or Revision 3.5 of the world's most popular tabletop role playing game, and uses game mechanics based on 20-sided die. Using DM Genie, you can create an adventure in dark dungeons filled with monsters and treasure. You can manage your characters, and keep track of anything that happens to them.

For Game Masters: Create monsters in two clicks. Roll attacks and damage, cast spells. Put your adventure into DM Genie - complete with rich text description, maps with clickable hot spots, monsters and treasure. Roll random encounters and generate random treasure in literally a few seconds. Use one of the many tools, like the Weather Generator, the Dice Roller, the EL Calculator, the Time/Movement tracker. Run multiple campaigns.

DM Genie is a great way to prepare for your game, but its true power is revealed when you use it during the game with a laptop computer. Having everything integrated is a huge time saver and can really improve the flow of game night.

For Players: Use DM Genie to create and add levels to your character - the PC Leveling Wizard guides you step by step, telling you what is legal and what isn't (but it never stops you from choosing what you want). Once you're done, print out the customizable character sheet. Or, even better, use a laptop during the game and you can have all your stats automatically recalculated when you cast a spell or equip a magic item. DM Genie truly is the perfect character sheet.

For Both: A complete, on-line reference of the three core rule books - that's 570 monsters, 70 skills, 270 feats and special abilities, 540 spells, 270 psionic powers. 20 non-magical armors and shields, 80 weapons, 2000 items (all the magic items), 36 classes. And you can add to or customize any entry! Use the import/export functions to quickly share with other players.

Very nice product. I switched to ADnD 3.5 edition and wanted some sort of tool to help with campaign management since wotc isn't going to provide one. I think that, properly used, the computer is an excellent addition to an RPG for management purposes. [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
