God of Thunder and Rock'n'Roll

Been playing around with some RPG game tools (RPTools, if you're curious) ever since I got home. So far, the DiceTool would be useful if I had a laptop or whatnot, and the InitTool is interesting but has some flaws that keep it from being something I'll use. This brings up something: I hate forums with a passion. Loads of crap, takes forever to find anything, much less sift through it all for relevant information. You spend an hour trying to get a simple answer, likely as not just giving up after searching post after post. Just asking the question outright either gets you called out or pointed to somewhere else, and trying to ask it in a more direct, non-forum way gets the response "check the forums!" Anyway, the issues I have either claim they'll be addressed (in posts a year old) or aren't showing up at all, which makes me wonder what I'm doing wrong. Sadly, the documentation that is alluded to in multiple places simply does not exist. Thanks a fuckin' load.

Mostly interested in MapTool, which I'll check out later. Looks nifty, but I'm guessing that, in the end, it'll be more trouble for me than it's worth to just do the work manually.

So tired. Methinks it's time to put in a movie and pass out for a while.
