Do Rounds

a tool for D&D 5e DMs to make combat encounters easier to manage

Do Rounds is a tool that I developed after a weekend of Tabletop Roleplaying Games with my friends. We were playing Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition, and I was the Dungeon Master. I had put together an adventure that had several very large encounters between the players and their enemies, and I found that I was spending great amounts of time managing the details of them using pen, paper and dice.

It was labor-intensive and error-prone, and just took too long. I quickly found myself wishing that I had a tool to manage all of the mechanics for me, so I could focus on the drama of it, the roleplaying.

Three days later, Do Rounds was born.

In addition to being a useful tool for the next time that my friends and I get to game, I used it as an opportunity to begin learning Vue.js. Previously, I tended to use knockout.js, but I feel sold on Vue now. It is a superb solution for a collection of difficult problems.

I always welcome questions, constructive criticism, feature ideas and pull requests.
