Turn Watcher

Turn Watcher is a tool based on Dungeons & Dragons rules. It is used to track the initiative of your players and monsters. It includes an option to roll initiative on every round, roll will, listen, and spot, and it has a status column that shows you the current status of your players. When you enter a player or monster, you also enter all of its modifiers, so the computer can take care of rolling all the dice for you. Still want to roll initiative? You can simply order the characters with the Move Up and Move Down options.

Recent releases

  •  05 Dec 2013 19:22

    Release Notes: Minor code improvements and refactoring. Fixes to compile on Ubuntu 13.10+ (Saucy) (due to g++ 4.8 being more stringent). Released on an Ubuntu PPA.

    •  13 Nov 2013 20:58

      Release Notes: The code has been relicensed under the GPLv2. Presently, it only compiles and is tested under Ubuntu 12.10. Support for Windows and Mac is very poor at present. There was a lot of code clean up and refactoring, so this represents a fairly stable version.

      •  07 Jan 2009 21:28

        Release Notes: This release features soft columns, a new Web 2.0 site, and a fix for a stabilization bug.

        •  25 Jun 2008 23:05

          Release Notes: This release adds a second window one can show on a second monitor so their players can see who's next in the combat at a glance. This is similar to the DM display without all the info such as the dice rolls and hit points.

          •  30 Jul 2007 21:41

            Release Notes: This release tracks spell, ability, and other effects, notifying you when an effect expires. You can also delay the effect a number of rounds before it kicks in. Temporary hit points are now handled, along with hit point boosts. New combatants are inserted in correct initiative order. There are many bugfixes.
