2015-07-15: Here are a trio of web toys from the old site:

Rocket Calc, number crunchy rocket science.

2015-01-29: Zero Dice, a story dice generator
Updated Zero Dice so you can also select regular dice or Fudge/Fate dice. Some of you may have noticed that it is easy to tweak the results. That's acceptable because the main purpose of Zero Dice is either to use it on-line with friends as a story challenge game or to use Zero Dice for for your solo gaming needs. In a solo game, the only person that you're cheating is yourself and hopefully you're getting a better story out of the effort. Enjoy!

2014-08-22: I'm proud to host some of my son's games as well. If you like the idler style of games, check out SHMUP Idler. Basically an idler is kind of like an interactive screen saver and game combined. This is still a work in progress, but you can still play it.

2014-06-18: Instant Magical Girl Generator, is based on Ewen Cluney's game, Magical Burst. Click a button and get a complete magical girl character for his game to use as a PC or NPC.

2013-02-22: Evil Robot Generator, randomly creates robots for your mechanical hordes.

2013-02-21: Random Language Generator, this utility takes assorted language patterns and randomly generates (hopefully) useful words to inspire you when creating and naming things.
