It would be really cool to have an app that would allow you to create and modify character sheets for games like DnD 3.5 and Shadowrun on the Zune HD. I am a complete programming noob, but I doubt it would be that difficult to make.

That would be really neat to see.... but don't you need a game master for games like that? That would MAYBE need some sort of Wireless Capabilities of some sort.. Right? Or am I thinking of something else....?

If it's just for storing sheets, you don't need anything complicated, just a form interface for the stats of the game and a method for saving the numbers. It would, however, be made more complex and do more functions if you wished. One thing I would suggest would be a dice roller built into it. Both of those are simple enough for anyone who knows the language.

yeah no, it would be just for storing and editing character sheets for different RPG's. I'm thinking DnD 3.5, and Shadowrun character sheets should come pre-loaded.

I would think it would be fairly easy to do that already either scan your character sheet save it as a jpeg or take a screenshot of it and save it to your zune. Pretty simple. I don't think you need an app for that.

when playing an rpg, you often need to edit the character sheet.
