Muticlass support on the D&D 5e Spellcaster Helper

22 de July de 2019

The spellsheet manager of the RPGist D&D 5e Spellcaster Helper already allowed characters to have multiple classes, but it did not correctly apply the rule for sharing spell slots between them.

Previously, upon entering your multiclass character's "Play" page, each class had its own spell slots, which were managed independently: by burning a spell slot from one class, the spell slots of the other classes were unaffected.

LFG's RPG system selector optimization

06 de July de 2019

The RPG system selector of the RPGist's RPG Looking for Group platform, used to fill in your Game Preferences and on the search filters of players and groups, has just received an improvement:

Some RPG systems have a relatively long name and are known by a shorter one, such as D&D (Dungeons and Dragons) and GURPS (Generic Universal RolePlaying System). In these cases, only the long name was used in the selector. If you searched for "D&D" or "G...

D&D 5e Spellcaster Helper new address

04 de July de 2019

The RPGist's D&D 5e Spellcaster Helper has a new address: https://dnd5spells.rpgist.net

But don't worry about remembering the new path, carry on using the old one and you will be automatically redirected.

One side effect is that the ads stopped working until the advertising program approves the new domain. It should be working again soon.

It is not much of a change, the only difference is that t...

    27 de June de 2019

    The RPGist has a single sign on (SSO) system, the RPGist Accounts, which was not working exactly as a single login system, but only as a user management system.

    The RPGist Accounts has just been improved so that when someone logs into any of the RPGist apps, they are automatically logged into all of the RPGist apps that are integrated with the this login system, which for now are only the&nbs...
