Re: Brainstorming Software and other GM Tools
I tend to write elements for games and campaigns at www.strolen.com
. They have an easy to use organizational system and have numerous ways to link various elements. For my own city of Antioch, I created my own main city sub Antioch ( http://www.strolen.com/content.php?node=1563
) with a variation (City Image http://www.strolen.com/content.php?node=1917
). I have created each Ward of the city as a seperate post linked by the central sub. There are various submissions for establishments, NPCs, etc, linked to Antioch. I have done a number of things for the World (Arth). These are all linked by a grouping free text. ( http://www.strolen.com/view.php?node=free_search&free=Arth
) Now I don't use Arth or Antioch actively anymore, but I occasionally add more things from memory or create things that fit it. To be honest, I have nine or so main projects in work here. Every now and again I have a great idea I can't use right now, so I write it up and leave it here for later.
Strolen's also allows others to see your work, using it directly (reveling in your brilliance) or use it as inspiration. Others can add to your works or comment upon them. In addition to my own material there, I have access to other people's creativity as well. It is the best tool for most of my work.
We are an online, interactive, searchable role playing resource for game masters, storytellers and players. We provide a friendly place for the sharing, commenting, and voting on user submitted role playing game elements to include plots, npcs, locations, items, creatures, entire settings and much much more. We major in Fantasy role playing, but there is more than swords and sorcery here. You can find resources to fit into almost any role playing genre or setting. We try to avoid game specific material, and instead lean towards what can be easily adapted to most any role playing system. Also, don't forget to explore the forums and the chat where you can join in a discussion or a role playing game in progress.
