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.

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.


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.
