GURPS Calculator 2.5: GM Control Board and Hiking Calculator

GM Control Board 
A collection of everything that is useful to a GM while running your game! To get started, head on over to the GM Control Board section of gCalc and follow the on screen directions.

Not much more to say about it. It's a pretty huge update, but it's easy to understand. Have at it.

Hiking Calculator
Coded by Pseudoboo and with UI by your's truly, the Hiking Calculator should hopefully take some of the sting out of those crunchy hiking discussions.

What's Next?

Patreon Goals

$90 - Character and Monster Database
Once this goal is hit, users will be able to tag characters imported from GCS or GCA as PC/NPC/Monster. Once tagged, all characters can then made "public" (with their default being "private"). All characters that are tagged and made public will be available for other users to browse and use in their own campaigns. The goal here is to create a large, crowd-sourced monster database for everyone to use and enjoy!

$100 - GM Campaign and Session Planner
Once this goal is met, users will be able to create individual "sessions" within a campaign. These sessions will be a collections of "scenes" which the GM can insert associated PCs, NPCs, and Monsters as well as keep track of notes. For example, if you have a dungeon crawl with 3 encounters in it, you could make 3 scenes, and in each scene have the requisite monsters added along with notes on their combat strategies and pre-laid traps. Once that scene arrives in game, you simply open the scene in gCalc and will be able to quickly start combat utilizing the functionality already set down by the "GM Control Board" feature gained at the $80 pledge level.
