David Leonhardt of The New York Times breaks it down. Just the facts. 40 sentences. This is where we’re at.
I’ve been using D&D Beyond to track my 5th edition characters for the last several sessions, rather than the old school paper and pencil character sheets, and it’s thoroughly good.
In fact, I’ve used that website for character creation for the last two randomly rolled characters… my late human druid and my current tiefling cleric, Velza. It keeps track of everything and saves a lot of time in looking up spell details, rolling bonuses and if it’s one or two d8’s needed for Sacred Flame at 5th level. There’s a shot of my current character sheet below.
Yes, I currently have 1HP. Got absolutely flattened by a froghemoth and was stabilized by a party member.
We just need to play more often! It’s been a couple months, now, and I’m really itching to sit down to a small role playing marathon.

Fu Master Productivity Checklist
I love Things3. It’s the backbone of my daily productivity, from recurring tasks like household chores to multi-step projects.
Vince Coley and his lovely website Productivity with a Purpose is a great place to learn all about the Getting Things Done method, and particularly how he uses Things3 to automate and classify every task in your life. I greatly enjoyed this recent post on how he uses this ubiquitous app to do just that.
