Looking for Android Tabletop RPG App Suggestions

Labels: , , , ,

Acer Iconia A1-810I recently received a Android tablet. As I have no use for a smartphone, this is the first "smart device" I've owned. For those who care, it's an Acer Iconia A1-810-L416 (7.9-Inch screen, 16 GB) running Android 4.2.2. It's certainly not the latest or the greatest, but it seems nice to me -- especially since it was a gift.

I'm looking for recommendations for free apps useful for running/playing tabletop RPGs. In some cases, I've overwhelmed by choices, for example, there seem to be a huge number of die rolling apps. I never have the time nor the interest to try them all in the hope of finding the best, or even just the best for me. In other cases, I have no idea what is out there and vague searches on Google Play don't turn up much -- not even software I've seen mentioned around the net.

So, remembering that I'm mainly interested in old school D&D and retroclones, what Android apps should like look at -- and why? As I mentioned, I've definitely interested in a good, general purpose die roller app but please don't limit suggestions to die rollers. Thanks in advance.

Are already right up that alley of old school D&D.

As for a dice roller...

This one gave up on looking good so it can be functional. It's readable, customizable and has pretty much every kind of numbered die you'd want, with enough relevant options.

Nothing else immediately comes to mind.

Dungeon Crawl Classics App called Crawler's Companion from Purple Sorcerer.com lots of resources for DCC RPG - rules, spells, fumbles, criticals and a dice roller which is quite good.

You could take a look at http://characterba.se/
Although not strictly an Android app (or even an app), it's a nice way to play your characters from whatever device you currently have access to.
