The Narrator's Helper

Once again I am looking at a pile of notes on Ukarea and realize that I have to organize them. Back when I was heavily into True20, particularly the Blood Throne setting, I discovered a great tool to organize my notes with. After some searching, I found it again; The Narrator's Helper.

It is basically a standalone wiki, or one html file, that is described thusly, "This self-contained wiki-format website can be easily used as a repository for all the notes, media, and other planning tools that go into running an RPG." Things like maps, images, hit point boxes, dice roller, and many more are already built in.

A little tiddlywiki language savvy, which really isn't hard, and you are on your way, once you copy the linked site above, to your system.

I am consider even releasing Ukarea as a self contained tiddlywiki file instead of a PDF. Thoughts? (Please at least check the site out before smashing this idea though.)

Best,
TB

  1. It's been a while since I used Tiddlywiki, mainly because it seems to slow down when you put a lot of stuff into it.

  2. I used to be heavily into TiddlyWikis as a GM tool. Very useful, especially in that they can be transported so easily on a thumb stick. Then I ran into scaling issues. I wonder how well this new one scales to 100+ entries...

  3. I had noticed some mild slow down when I used a lot of images, but assumed that to be typical browser issue. I have not gotten to the 100+ mark on Tiddlies yet, so can not say. I think that for simple modules / small settings (say regional gazetteer) it seems to do well.

    Thanks for stopping by ; )
