Chris Nehren will give a talk at YAPC::NA_2012 that he describes as:
I like Perl. I like tabletop RPGs (especially tabletop RPGs whose
mechanics are licensed under the OGL, like D&D 3.5 and Pathfinder). I
like Unix. And I like running games.
But I’m lazy. And running games is a *lot* of work. What’s a lazy
GM to do? Solve the problem in as generic a way as possible, of
course! I’ll give the computer some data and some instructions
about how to do the tedious stuff (managing initiatives, monster
health, combatant status, that sort of thing). Then, I can focus on
the fun part—interacting with my players.
And as I like Unix, this means simple text files and a text mode
interface. No Web servers or browsers needed—I want this to run
offline and not kill my laptop’s battery.
So, in this talk I’ll be discussing some tools I’ve put together
to make running an OGL d20 tabletop RPG easier. They may / may not be
useful for anyone else. But hopefully they’ll be interesting on
