Worldbox is a Pathfinder RPG compatible toolkit designed to allow Players and GMs to create Characters, NPCs, Towns, and entire Worlds at the click of a button.

Built as a standalone application for PC and Mac, Worldbox will allow Players, GMs, and Storytellers access to build and manage unique worlds, characters, and items.

Retailing for $30 the Toolkit will include:

Character Sheet/Generator

Character sheets for a GM and Players to record their characters. Either enter in all information manually, or have it auto calculate for you, or even use a combination to allow for house rules.

NPC Generator

Generate unique NPCs with the click of a button. From age, to stats, to equipment and even appearance generate them all at the click of your mouse and then tweak them as you see fit.

Encounter Generator

New to GMing, or maybe just need help keeping track of things, the Encounter Generator has your back. Either build encounters manually, or let the generator set you up with a random encounter you can then modify.

Treasure Generator

Tired of rolling tons of dice for that random encounter or maybe just wanting some inspiration, the Treasure Generator can help. This handy tool will help you expedite the random generation of treasure and will even offer some random items with intriguing descriptions for you to use as plot hooks.

City Builder

Building yourself a unique world? Players wandering into a random town? No problem! The City Builder can help you quickly create entire cities and flush them out with a full compliment of NPCs, locations, and even maps. As with all the tools, you can either work the tools manually or have them whip you up something fast that you can run with or tweak to suit your needs.

Map Generator/Builder

Need a map in a hurry? Or maybe you just want a clean interface to generate a nice map for you and your players? The map generator can help. Click a button and have it automatically generate a map for you, or build your map piece by piece. Contains a standard City, Wilderness and Dungeon tileset.

World Map Generator

Needing to generate a large landmass? Use the World Map Generator to quickly build a world map. You can even toggle a hexagonal grid on top and scale it to your needs.

Virtual Tabletop

Share all that you have built with your players through a virtual tabletop. Choose what information players can see about monsters and NPCs. Move tokens around the maps you have created and even restrict their vision to that of their characters.

Print Formats
All information can easily be saved out or printed in a format that will easily fit standard printer paper allowing you to easily print out your maps, characters, encounters, notes and other information.


Stretch Goals!
Since there has been so much interest, we have started to consider what we will do with additional funding!

$2000 -- UNLOCKED!

5 Additional tilesets - We will include more tilesets into the application. A vote amongst backers will determine which additional tilesets will be produced beyond a standard City, Wilderness and Dungeon tileset.

Character Portrait Creator - Create portraits for your characters by mixing and matching multiple features such as clothing, hairstyle, skin tone, eye color and scars.

Custom Tables - Create your own tables for random generation! Allows users to adapt the software to any kind of game.

$4000

iPhone and Android builds to allow for easy access on the go!

$6000

Additional System - Based on popular vote, I will make Worldbox compatible with another game system with which I can get licensing.

Risks and challenges

The primary obstacle to completing this project is scale. As a single individual working on the project I can only work on one aspect at a time. While the actual coding is not much of a challenge, there is just a lot to test. Much of the project revolves around creating random things, so a lot of testing has to go into it to make sure it is random and that all the possibilities work and flow correctly. This may result in setbacks of delivery dates of the individual tools, but they will still get completed.
