Hi Doug,



> I looked into screenplay and other 'writing' software



LOL! You and I both. 'Great minds think alike' I guess. ;-)



I noticed from another post that you're a Mac user who dual boots. So am I. A year ago I spent ages on the Mac side looking at various software to assist with my little home projects, including gaming. I ended up falling in love with Scrivener, which has one of the cleanest and best designed UIs I've seen in any software program.



Of course, it is only so-so for RPG stuff, since that isn't its intended use. Hence my interest (like you, again) in something like the Keep.



Cheers,

Christopher

What I have *not* seen yet (which doesn't mean it does not already exist somewhere) is a tool that did a good job of supporting the 'creative' side of GMing, such as constructing (and tracking) interesting NPCs (backstory and description rather than just stats), and cool locations, and well-designed adventure settings, and spiffy player handouts, and all that other stuff that elevates an RPG above being just a ridiculously complex small unit tactical combat simulator.

Cheers,
Christopher


Chris, just for that reason, I looked into screenplay and other 'writing' software that is supposed to help support keeping track of characters, plotlines and locations.

All of them were to expensive and those that were not did not do a good job, so I would also be happy with help on the creative side.
