What's the Frequency, Kenneth?

...which is just my odd way of bringing up the subject of reception, which is what I'm doing today. The regular receptionist is out sick, something she seems to do every Tuesday, so I get to sit up front with nothing but a phone, a computer, and the contents of my briefcase to keep me company.

I used the time at my disposal to go back and read the currently-available drafts of level_head's magnum opus, Impacted Wisdom. I predict it will do well. :)

Also, Dan is back from GenCon and delivered my copy of Dungeons and Dragons e-Tools, which is alas all that's left of the vastly ambitious and totally bungled "Master Tools" product that was announced back with the release of 3e. It's basically a character and monster (and monster-character) generator that encompasses all of the core D&D rulebooks, is customizable, and supposedly will in time get supplemental downloads as the folks at Fluid can work on it.

I'm told that PCGen is actually more powerful and extensible for just about any d20 System game (e.g., Star Wars or d20 Call of Cthulhu), but I haven't used it, so I can't really say. E-tools has going for it that we've already been using the Character Generator demo in the game, but it's reached the end of its usefulness due to its lack of support for magic items and non-customizable nature. (Camstone is using Monte Cook's alternate ranger, for instance.)

Also, as happens periodically, I've been pondering my various projects and interests for a while, particularly in regards to writing vs. art vs. comics. But what I have to say about that will have to wait until it's gelled a little more, and go into another journal entry.
