Campaign Cartographer is the leading map making software for games (RPGs, miniatures and wargaming). Campaign Cartographer gives you fingertip control of both the big picture and the small details. Want a large scale map of your adventuring world? A detailed dungeon floorplan? An historical battlefield littered with burnt-out tanks? CC3 can deliver all of this and lots, lots more.
GROW YOUR MANUSCRIPT YOUR WAY Tailor-made for long writing projects, Scrivener banishes page fright by allowing you to compose your text in any order, in sections as large or small as you like. Got a great idea but don't know where it fits? Write when inspiration strikes and find its place later. Grow your manuscript organically, idea by idea.
SEE THE FOREST OR THE TREE Whether you plan or plunge, Scrivener works your way: hammer out every last detail before typing a word, or carve out a draft and restructure later. Or mix your methods and do a bit of both. In Scrivener, everything you write is integrated into an easy-to-use project outline. So working with an overview of your manuscript is only ever a click away, and turning Chapter Four into Chapter One is as simple as drag and drop.
RESEARCH WITHIN REACH Need to refer to research? In Scrivener, your background material is always at hand, and you can open it right next to your work. Write a description based on a photograph. Transcribe an interview. Take notes about a PDF file or web page. Or check for consistency by referencing an earlier chapter alongside the one in progress.
GETTING IT OUT THERE Once you're ready to share your work with the world, compile everything into a single document for printing, self-publishing, or exporting to popular formats such as Word, PDF, Final Draft or plain text. You can even share using different formatting, so that you can write in your favorite font and still satisfy those submission guidelines.

gTove is a lightweight web application to simulate a virtual tabletop. Multiple maps and standee-style miniatures can be placed on the tabletop, and everyone connected to the same tabletop can see them and move the miniatures around. To make the hosting costs as low as possible and to allow other people to fork the project, Google Drive is used to store shared resources such as the images for miniatures and maps, and data for scenarios.

Foundry VTT is a standalone application built for experiencing multiplayer tabletop RPGs using a feature-rich and modern self-hosted application where your players connect directly through the browser.
As a "virtual tabletop", the software provides a set of digital tools which are designed to imitate and expand upon the experience of playing a game in-person with your friends. Support for character sheets, rolling dice, exploring battlemaps, and moving heroic tokens are just a few of the many features which enable this experience.
Foundry VTT goes well beyond the basic feature set, however, with rich dynamic lighting, fog of war, audio playlists, video chat using webcams, and way more. The feature list is basically unlimited thanks to a very active community and module support. With just a bit of coding you can expand upon the core features yourself.
At the heart of Foundry Virtual Tabletop and its design are the following six guiding principles: • Offer one-time purchase software for GMs where players can connect for free. • Relentlessly innovate using powerful and modern web technologies. • Empower community developers with a best-in-class API and modding tools. • You own your own content; no dependency on external services and no feature gating. • Provide a powerful system agnostic framework that can be extended for homebrew. • Incorporate direct integrations to other helpful game-mastering tools.
Fantasy Grounds is a virtual tabletop to help facilitate play of tabletop-style role-playing games online with a GM (game master) and one or more players. It replicates what you would traditionally do around a physical table, such as rolling dice, managing character sheets, keeping campaign notes, sharing handouts and images, and moving tokens or figures around on a map.
Realistic 3D Dice The dice rolling is a feature that has set Fantasy Grounds apart from the competition since the very beginning of virtual tabletops and is still one of the most loved features for our system. Take a look at the video to see how easy it is for users and try out the demo to see for yourself. Dice rolling is an integral part of any RPG experience.
Library Modules RPGs often require players and GMs to look up a lot of info during the game. Fantasy Grounds simplifies this with free, built-in library modules for the PFRPG and 3.5E rulesets. These library modules provide details on new abilities, spells, monsters, weapons and armor and more. Extensive library modules are also included with the commercial rulesets available for purchase, such as Savage Worlds, Call of Cthulhu, Castles & Crusades and Rolemaster Classic.
Shared Maps Fantasy Grounds uses a light-weight approach to maps that gets you playing as quickly as possible, while still allowing for some great map features such as fog of war (masking), areas of effect, distance and movement paths.
Many more powerful features:
- Random Table Support
- Built-in Tokens
- Export Your Custom Creations
- CoreRPG = Any Game System
- Advanced Automation
