More prop generators!

In my last post I wrote about the Newspaper Clipping Generator, but there are a lot of generators available on the internet that can help you to easily create props for your roleplaying game and/or your blog/website/whatever.

  • Ticket-O-Matic
    Create your own first class airplane ticket. The generator allows you to choose from 33 airline.
  • MagMyPic
    This service allows you to create a fake magazine cover. 
  • Old Photo Generator
    This nifty tool let’s you age your photos. That’s especially handy if you take some photos for your next Cthulhu session and age them to make them look like they were from the 19th century.
  • Monsterizer!
    Ok, you can’t really use that for your roleplaying session… hmm … perhaps a very creative GM could make use of this tool, but it’s fun!
    The “Monsters Initial Stickers Name Generator” creates something like this (you can enter your own words of course):

You find hundreds of interesting and fun generators at the Generator Blog! Have fun!

Newspaper Clippings

I always love to use props and one of my favorite prop are newspaper clippings. Usually I used a word processor like Word or Open Office to create a mock-newspaper. But there’s an even easier way: The Newspaper Clipping Generator! Here’s a sample of what you can create in just a few seconds:

By the way I think my fellow-blogger Uncle Bear has used this generator before to create newspaper clippings for his blog. So you obviously can even use this web tool to pimp your blog! Check it out!

One GM screen to rule them all

I have seen a lot GM screens in my roleplaying times and most of them were either not too sturdy or the information printed on the GM’s side was only partially useful. One excellent GM screen was the one released by WotC for the new D&D 4th Edition but there’s another GM screen that put’s them all to shame!

I am talking about the “Savage Worlds Customizable GM Screen” by Pinnacle Entertainment Group. For around 26 bucks you get a sturdy trifold vinyl screen that has 6 pockets that you can use to customize your screen. I currently use it with the Pirates of the Spanish Main insets that you get for free at the official site, but you can easily create your own insets. If you don’t mind to create your own insets, you can use this GM screen with any roleplaying game. And since it’s coated with vinyl it’s pretty resistance to the common dangers on the playing table like sticky softdrinks, candle wax and/or spilled snack food.
You can even use it to hit your players if they don’t behave. It’s the perfect tool for the GM. 🙂
