A handfull of reviews

Obsidian Portal
This site is great for managing your campaign. It features a blog for keeping session summaries, a Wiki for sharing important details about your campaign, an NPC tracker, a page for maps, and a comments page. Paid subscribers also get access to a forum for their campaign, increased number of maps, and the ability to create an unlimited number campaigns.

The site uses Textile coding and limited HTML. Formatting pages just the way you want them can be a bit difficult, but after creating a few pages you should get the hang of it and be able to get things looking right.

I’ve been using Obsidian Portal for about a month now and I am thoroughly impressed with what it has to offer.

John’s Dungeons and Dragons Utilities
A pretty basic web page with several tools that make running games a bit easier. My favorite feature is the Initiative Tracker which I use any time I am DMing. The initiative tracker does have a few quirks, if you put a space in a character’s name it will not accept an initiative input and sets them to 0.

d20srd.org
Absolutely indispensable for the 3.5 DM. The search feature and hyper-linked pages make it a breeze to find the perfect monster or a disputed rule without spending several minutes flipping through books. This only covers the OGL material produced by Wizards, all the extra material from various splat books is not included, so if you use other than the core books you’ll still need to have them on hand.
