Here we are again for another installment of Gaming Tools.  This being the fourth post for gaming tools, I really hope I can make several more (these tools are getting harder to find).

Hirst Arts Fantasy Architecture Inc.

They make and sell silicone rubber molds.  They’re made of high quality silicone and will last for years and hundreds of casts.   Castle molds, Egyptian, sci-fi, Gothic, and a few other genres are available to choose from.  My buddy has been using this stuff for a few years and has made some truly amazing 3D terrain battle maps.

Stuffer Shack

Ok, shameless plug.  Here you’ll find three very useful tools to help with your gaming.  As a GM, my personal favorite would be the Mini Counters.  They keep track of each enemy, so there’s no confusion about an enemy’s hit points, powers, or conditions.  Next we have Bloodied Markers, for indicating when a PC, NPC, or monster becomes bloodied.  And lastly we have my favorite (as a player): Horse Minis.  Stick your PC miniature to the base of the Horse Mini and you’re good to go!

Steel Sqwire

Steel Sqwire is cool because they have flip maps, area of effect templates, stat cards, and line of site indicators.  My favorite of the bunch is the flip mat.  2 feet by 3 feet, foldable, and laminated to allow for all kids of markers.  Draw that map ahead of time, put it into your binder, then unfold it later.  Great for any roving GM.

Chris Stevens

Chris Stevens is the Owner and Executive Editor (he can use that title - he checked) of Stuffer Shack. He is the son of his non-famous (but totally awesome) father, and has written, like, tons of gaming material (none of which will he ever try to publish). He started Stuffer Shack in 2010 and is very proud of the site, very pleased with its store, and very thankful for its writers.
