    Campaign websites, share your ideas

    I'm starting a website for my D&D group that I had just started. So, I'm looking for some ideas. Such as content, webspace(free perferred), domain forwarding(cheap/free), internet sites that you are using.

    Right now, I'm using blogger.com for people to post news and to keep players informed and 3eprofiler.com to keep a character record sheet(d20/d&d) on line for each characters section. For webspace I'm using the 4 megs my school gives me to host the HTML and the pictures we take with my gfs digital camera are stuck on Yahoo! photos . Just curious to what you are all doing with your websites and resources.

    O, the website is

    I use tripod.co.uk. One popup I can live with, 10 megs is more than enough. Pictures (at the moment just maps) I just place there. Fulfills my needs perfectly.

    "The best advice I ever got was from an elephant trainer in the jungle outside Bangalore. I was doing a hike through the jungle as a tourist. I saw these large elephants tethered to a small stake. I asked him, 'How can you keep such a large elephant tied to such a small stake?' He said, 'When the elephants are small, they try to pull out the stake, and they fail. When they grow large, they never try to pull out the stake again.' That parable reminds me that we have to go for what we think we're fully capable of, not limit ourselves by what we've been in the past." -Vivek Paul

    Check out my site. Feel free to steal any idea you want - it is clear and organized, but more functional than pretty.

    I paid for my domain name from NameZero (link on the site), and I believe it was under $20, including pop3 and web-based email utilities.

    I borrow my webspace, so your free school space should be fine.

    I don't post my group's characters to the site, but I am considering using this utility to showcase my party's characters, but I haven't decided. Do you like the Profiler one you are using?

    The poll and messageboard are courtesy of Bravenet - EZboard had way too many popups

    You can see a campaign setting (not one I'm playing, but one I'm developing just for fun) at this location . It's with geocities, which is pretty good from the standpoint that they give you a nice, easy to use address and lots of memory, but they have these nasty pop-up java windows everytime you change pages, which gets really annoying. I know you're looking for a free spot, but I'm seriously considering paying for some place that'll leave me alone with pop-ups. Geocities used to be that way before Yahoo! bought them, so I'm kinda a legacy customer.

    Hi gariig,

    Feel free to take any ideas off of our site. We're constantly adding and taking things, but it's proven to be a useful tool to communicate to everyone. Once you find a comfortable pace to update it and such, it'll take on a form of it's own.

    Check our site out here

    My communities:

    My campaign site (link in the sig below) has been evolving over the past year or so and has proven to be an essential part of the campaign. It's a place where I can put up all the information that someone living in my world ought to know, along with the little details the party has uncovered in their travels.

    I post house rules there, maps and descriptions of places and cultures, a calendar, history and all sorts of fun stuff. My party relies on it and it's usually up on the computer screen during our gaming sessions.

    I have a lot fun designing and maintaining it, and I learned a lot. It's being hosted on a friend's server, which is nice in that "FREE" sort of way.
