    To those who don't get what this is...

    This app is not a game. It is a tool for people who play tabletop roleplaying games, to automate a portion of the book keeping for their face-to-face game experience. It does what it intends to, but if you don't play a d20 System pencil and paper RPG you will not get a use from this app.

    Works.

    If you are willing to take the time to enter the data, this app is very handy. It's not universal but if you play a system it does wotk with it saves some time and number crunching.

    This is a tool for your tabletop game

    Some folks here seemed to be confused as to the purpose of the app. It is NOT a game, it's a tool to help you manage your rpg session (the one you have in real life with your friends around a table or whatever). That being the point, the app does quite well. I can't see this being useful for a player to own but it sure is handy if you are the DM and don't want to track everything on your laptop.

    The addition of hit point tracking was a nice bonus.

    It's for table top RPGs

    If you have never rolled a d20 (or are wondering what i just said) to kill a kobold, goblin, or dragon, the this is not an app you need.

    GREAT!

    Get educated people and read the description and dont pay money for something and you dont even know what it is. Come on people thats just sad. I take a college level propositional calculus and im only 12 get educated do good in school and get a good life not one filled with negative comments on something that doesnt have any impact on your life. Take my advice and do something that benefits.

    HP

    I like the ability to enter any hp for any monster or character. I dont roll my creatures. I plan them and need to be able just to enter their HP. Especially for my 128 HP dragon.

    Other that that, this will help at my table so much, thanks!
