I have found this site to be a tremendous source of names for a number of settings.

(Note you have to refresh the entire site to generate additional name lists in a category after generating the first.)

I just tried to find the D&D Next playtest materials I had downloaded last year, but they closed the playtest last December. If anyone is interested in seeing it, send me a PM and I'll see if I can find them.

I posted this in another thread but figured I needed to add it here as well. The new D&D version Basic Rules is out and available for FREE at Basic Rules for Dungeons & Dragons. Its about 2.7MB and 110 pages.

Here's a PDF of the über-TSR collectors list

http://personalpages.tds.net/~jazzn2day/Collectors%20Checklist%20-%20D&D,%20AD&D%20%28TSR%29.pdf

how many do *you* have?
(note, I'm over 50%, but if you stop at 2d Edition, I'm over 85% or so)

Free (open source?) digital tools for making multi-user online RPG maps, character tokens, dicing, etc.   Think they use java.

Dungeonographer -

For making or randomly generating dungeon maps with furnishing graphics reminiscent of old D&D modules.  Free use on the site, paid version for installer and a few extra options.  Some virtual gameplay usage.

Airboy I've used it in the past and I think it saves the image as a jpeg or something like that so it'd should be easy to copy image and transfer to a program like power point and print the slide(s).
