About this project

Bruce Gulke's Tablesmith (http://www.mythosa.net/Main/TableSmith) is an awesome tool you can use in RPGs for creating and rolling random tables - treasure, monsters, NPCs, inns, you name it! With it's simple syntax, random tables are easy to create and edit. 

Tablesmith though has two shortcomings: 

1) It only runs on Windows

2) Lots of other users of Tablesmith have made tables, but you have to go find those tables and get them installed on your computer. Sharing tables you've created is a manual chore for you. 

Enter Tablesmith Online!

TablesmithOnline will be a website that uses the Tablesmith engine to make random table rolls with the tables themselves stored in a wiki that everyone has access to for additions and changes.  

Use TablesmithOnline everywhere: On your computer, on your Mac, on your tablet, or on your smartphone. Anywhere you have an internet connection, you'll be able to use TablesmithOnline. 

Huge Collection of Tables: Since TablesmithOnline uses the Tablesmith engine, all of the existing tables will work in TablesmithOnline. 

Easy Table Sharing: With one wiki holding all of the tables, you won't have to hunt down and install other users' tables and you won't have to do anything special to share your tables with others. TablesmithOnline  will be the one place for all your random gaming table needs.

Risks and challenges

Proof of concept is already complete as shown in the video. It just needs to be cleaned up and some more advanced functions added to it.

Bruce Gulke, author of Tablesmith, is ready to meet any challenges needed with the Tablesmith engine.

Todd Landrum has developed multiple, data-driven websites as programmer for Paladin Programming and has delivered on a previous Kickstarter as the author of DM's Familiar. (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/87836772/dms-familiar-the-library…)
