Do you want to be a better Game Master?

Do you want to run a game your players call exciting,
well organized and fast-paced?

Face it. Being the DM is hard work. It's up to YOU to keep combat fast and exciting. It's up to YOU to have instant, encyclopedic knowledge of the rules. It's up to YOU to be prepared each and every game session.

How would you like an assistant at your side each game session to keep you organized, help run the game smoothly and make your combats fast and exciting?

DM's Familiar is the Answer!

DM's Familiar focuses on 3 important areas: Combat Management, Reference Library, and Codex Tree.

Combat Management

The Combat Manager in DM's Familiar handles all of the nitty-gritty details of 3E and Pathfinder combat. DMF will give you much faster and more exciting combat. The Combat Manager rolls initiatives, keeps track of who's turn it is, makes attack and damage rolls for the monsters, and much more.
