Courtesy of Ramza on the TT forums, here’s an option for storing your group’s character sheets online: RPG Web Profiler.
My most ambitious campaign website (described in TT’s second post ever, Running a Campaign Website) included online versions of all of the PCs. I made up a little text form for my players to fill in and update between sessions, and then converted them to HTML for the site. This worked very well — when someone forgets their sheet, or needed to play another player’s PC (our solution for absentees), their stats were there.
I haven’t tried it out, but RPG Web Profiler looks like a much better solution (and it’s free!). It allows you to post sheets online and limit access as you see fit — one person, a few people, the whole world. Has anyone tried this service out?
thetangledweb.net mirrors this, and it’s the one I use. I’ve got a good four or five PbP chars on that site.
we’ve got our PCs on our Yahoo Group and when someone can’t show we take turns playing their character for a little extra xp.
the characters are on the group as exports from the Hero Forge spreadsheet. 4 out of 5 of our groups members regularly bring and use laptops at the game.
Plenty of options — thanks for the links!
I wonder how hard it would be to make this a GMing wiki feature? Or even a new mini-forum?
