This weekend, I'm going to try actual physical maps for D&D and miniatures. Paper miniatures, mind (using a bulldog clip as the base) and greyscale maps (which I have printed in many sheets on my A4 laser printer and am now sellotaping together into one map). We shall see how it goes and whether it's more effort than it's worth!
This flowchart about choosing a D&D character class is rather tongue-in-cheek but is actually really useful to show to a new player who wants to get a sense of what they want to play.

Don't do this! Why, why would you do this? How can anyone think this is reasonable??
Watabou's medieval city map generator is a nice RPG tool
Unsure whether to try to start a pbp campaign or do a bunch of pbp oneshots to, essentially, "audition" players. I don't like the idea of doing that, but equally I want smart committed players, not people who'll wreck immersion because they think it's funny, or who will demand their custom subclass because they've minmaxed it. Very unsure how to proceed.
You whisper, “I’m sorry. I had a dream about it.” It is a dream, and it has a horrible ending. You are a vampire, and you are the subject of a spell. You have a total of 10 hit points, and you must be within 60 feet of the target for the spell to occur. The target must make a Charisma saving throw. On a failed save, the target takes 1d6 necrotic damage and loses all its hit points.

One of the things that stopped me using Kobold Fight Club's D&D encounter builder (http://kobold.club/fight/#/encounter-builder) was that I often want one monster to challenge a party with but the random generator would normally pick a collection of three or four less powerful monsters. So... because I'm a programmer, now you can say "no more than 1 monster" and that will constrain the encounter; that change I submitted has just gone live. I'm quite proud of that!
Not entirely true, and MY players don't do this stuff, but I laughed rather a lot at "roll every d6 in a one mile radius and add the total to your damage" (from https://www.reddit.com/r/DnD/comments/bdgnrk/oc_if_spells_and_abilities_were_written_how_my/)
Homebrewing custom magical 5e items for upcoming games. The latest: a coin of finding.
This appears to be a normal gold coin. However, once attuned to, the attuner can use an action to sense the direction from themselves to this coin over any distance as long as the coin is on the same plane as the attuner. If the coin is moving, they also sense the direction of its movement.
Made some tweaks and sent them in; the #onepagedungeon people let you update your entry right up to the deadline, which is pretty cool.
Getting back into roleplaying after many, so many years away.
