Thanks for the link. I have to try it out.

When the end is near the PCs yell out for the Encounter Killer!

It's actually pretty good. I got a sneak preview of this at GenCon last year, and it appears very similar. Of course, they fixed bugs and added features since then, but the interface was really good then, and has only improved since.

No, I don't work for WotC, and my husband/GM doesn't really like computer generated stuff, but this is a great way to automate some of the calculations. It also shows you *all* of the options available to your character for a particular choice (i.e. 2nd level utility powers). If you click on the name of the power, you get a full description from the rule book, which makes it particularly useful. You're not wading through a bunch of options (esp when looking at feats and such) that aren't really available to you.

I'll be glad when it allows you to advance your PC past 3rd level. farao
