What zdnet's 5 stars rating has to say about it

" Roleplaying Assistant is a multifaceted utility for three different RPG games: CyberPunk 2020, AD&D, and Star Wars. In addition to character creation, it can generate names, spellbooks, and gear; it even has a dice roller. This major update sports a completely revamped interface. It's friendly and simple to understand, if somewhat cluttered; large, clearly labeled buttons dominate the screen, with grid displays of characteristics and scores underneath. Roleplaying Assistant lets you augment the rules of the games as well; you can set your own default values for abilities, level-ups, encounters, and so on. Players will find Roleplaying Assistant useful for character creation, but Dungeon Masters will save countless hours using its powerful automated attribute generation capabilities to define the NPCs (non-playing characters) and PCs (playing characters)"

What Betabytes has to say about it

"A very well-thought-out design, an actually "helpful" help file, and the enormous amount of features makes The Roleplaying Assistant a "must" for all roleplayers. I recommend this one."
