The Wildside Gaming System App
Ever spend a frustrating hour looking for a missing character sheet? Ever wanted to play a spontaneous game while visiting a friend but your characters and dice were home? Ever wanted to adapt your fantasy character into a cyberpunk campaign without spending all night rewriting stats and skills? Do you have a group of players who can’t make the same “live” game, some of whom want to participate remotely? Would you like to be able to send campaign information and adjust XP on the fly during a game – even for players who aren’t able to attend the “live” game?
All of these and many other features are a part of the Wildside Gaming System app, which can be used on any smartphone, tablet, or laptop. The app incorporates the rich worldbuilding tools of the Wildside Gaming System, 2nd edition with features that can be used “off-the-shelf” for many popular RPGs, or customized for your own “house rules” or homebrewed roleplaying system.
While there are other tabletop RPG packages available, 1) most of them are not apps that will run on a phone or tablet or use cellular data; they require a laptop or tabletop computer and internet connection to use some or all functionality and 2) most are developed by hobbyists rather than professional writers, artists, and web developers. RPG Familiar is professionally coded, which means an easy, user-friendly app that enhances your tabletop experience rather than taking away gaming time as you try to figure out how to use it. This app is designed not to replace the pen and paper system, but to enhance it, so you’ll never lose a character sheet or spend hours looking through supplements for a missing magic item or critter description again.
