This is a copy of a a thread from another forum that locks their threads after way too short of a time but since 4e is a slow burner it seems very inconvenient (one cannot update or mark things out of date or add other things)

DM toolkit for 4e

Hello! I've been looking at this DM's toolkit for 5e and I was thinking: wouldn't it be nice to make a similar toolkit for 4e? The thing with 4e is that there's hardly any new tools coming out for it, giving us the option of filtering out a "best-of" list for it.
I'll create a skeleton of such a toolkit here - basically copied from the 5e Toolkit, and it would be nice if you could propose your favourite tools that should be added to the list. (Would it be a good idea to turn this into a Wiki page so that everyone can contribute more easily?)
I mostly removed all links that were only useful for 5e and added some stuff I thought of myself, but this toolkit is still a work a progress. Contributions very much appreciated!
