D&D Oblivion  

Brief Description 

Having started playing D&D in the last year, I realised how encapsulating and enjoyable game it is. However, there is always one area where the game struggles and that the DM has to go through the books to check information. I had a look online for an application that does this, but I could not find one.  

So, me and several of my friends decided to make one.  

What the application will have

• Character Creation  

• Party Creator  

• Encounters  

• Monster Details  

• Races  

• Classes  

• Spells  

• Weapons  

• Armour and Shields  

• Tools and Items  

• Music  

Stretch Goals  

• Map creator  

• Online  

• Android and IOS Companion Applications  

• Story Mode  

Primary features

Character Creation

Players will be able to create their characters for use in the game this will all be available on the application. The application will automatically add information such as Proficiency scores and stat changes.  

Party Creator

Whether you DM for one party or ten, the application will keep the parties separated based on their party name. This will ensure that the correct characters are loaded for encounters or to keep track of Experience points.  

Encounters

Encounters are always a busy time for the DM with so many numbers and stats to remember. The encounter system will allow the DM to see everything he needs to run the encounter from initiative rolls t an amount of health remaining.  

Monster Details

There are hundreds of monsters in the D&D universe so to stop the DM ticking through monster manual every time you want to face something new just type in the challenge rating or a name and the Monster Information system will list all the new and exciting creatures you can meet.  

Races

 When creating your character, there are many things to think of such as what race you are going to be. With the race searcher, you can see all the information about each one and how they will affect your character.  

Classes

Wanting to be a Rogue or Barbarian? Sure, what path do you want to take? This is one area in which many players struggle with as there are so many options having it all in one place makes this decision much easier.  

Spells

Weapons are good, but spells are better, with there being over four hundred to choose from you are spoilt for choice. The spells can be searched and applied to your character for quick reference and will also keep an eye on how many slots you have used.  

Weapons 

There are many weapons to choose from with unique damage dice to use. Knowing which ones to roll does make the game flow much faster and stops you forgetting to add that Proficiency bonus or elemental damage.  

Armour and Shields  

With all that damage being dealt you need to know how to protect yourself. Armour and shields can be added or removed very quickly and your Armour Class will change for you without you having to look at the book to see what your AC should be.  

Tools and Items

It would not be a game of D&D without hoarding everything you can find with well over a hundred to choose from its nice to know how much it is all worth.

Music  

This is one area which we hope to focus on as this can make or break a session. Having the right music for the moment can make it an immersive experience without the adverts in the middle of course. 

Stretch Goals 

With your support, the next few features will be added to the program

Map creator

As good as the explanation from the DM might be, it is always best to see what is going on. With this feature, you will be able to see what is around as your character would. This is done but using squares of which D&D is based from and taking how far your character can see and only making that distance viewable. Have the dark vision trait? Great you will be okay in the dark if you do not well good luck! 

Online 

Having Online support would make this application come into its own, allowing for cross network gaming and the safety of online saves. This would allow players to create their characters and send them straight to the DM to use.  

Android and IOS Companion Applications  

This is one area we are excited about, but we need your help to make it happen. Having companion Apps means that players can see what their players see, check what spells they have and use items.  

Story Mode

This feature would allow users to create their own stories, make villains and heroes for their players to experience. The system would only be available to the DM so the whole story could be protected. Users could also share stories with other DMs so everyone can experience something new.  

Goals

What your support will do

 • £200 – This will ensure the development of the Windows Application and provide us with enough support to make that it is created to a high standard  

• £300 – Allow us to create a Map builder element to the program so the DM and draw out the Map and only reveal what the players are meant to see  

• £400 – This would allow the application to have online aspects for online games and online saves for backup purposes. Player will also be able to create their characters and send them to the DM.  

• £500 – This amount would allow us to get an Android developer licence and create an Android companion app for when you are playing the game  

• £750 – This Amount would enable us to create a story mode in which players and DM can play prewritten adventures with different creatures and characters  

• £1000 – This would allow us to get an Apple development licence to create a IOS companion App.  

• £10000 – If we reach this goal then we are open to any ideas you may have. We will post them on the application, and if players want to see them, then we will make it happen.  

Our promise  

From all of us who are creating the application we will make sure that the program is building too high standard and with your support, we feel that the application could be fantastic!  

Thank you in advance for your support.

Risks and challenges

With every new idea, there are risks
One of the main risks of this program is the size. I have been programming for the last two week or so, and the application is about 400mb. Although this is a small problem, it is one I face. other is the amount of information the program needs to operate but will time this issues will be resolved.
Development can also be delayed but this is something we are trying hard to prevent
