Role-playing Games Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for gamemasters and players of tabletop, paper-and-pencil role-playing games. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I used this tool, albeit briefly, maybe a year ago. Now, I can't for the life of me remember what it was called.

First, it was an online/web based tool, not something you download. Everything was set up using a grid. Not like a combat grid, mind you.

It was like... each square in the grid was like its own mini tabletop/folder, which could be filled with notes, monster/item/power cards, etc. You would have a square for your town/city, one for the exterior of your dungeon, and one square for each encounter.

You could navigate between the grid squares quickly, making it easy to check the name of an NPC or update notes.

You could also sign into your DDI account and it would let you pull pre-populated monsters/items from there. It was definitely designed for 4e, but you could probably use it with other editions or even other games.

To top it off, it had a pretty nice/slick web interface. It LOOKED good.

So, what is the name of this application? I can tell you it is NOT:

  • roll20.net
  • masterplan

Help!

I'm pretty sure you're describing power2ool.com. Great little tool for making my unusual DM whims look official.

Sometimes it'll get stuck on a "Connecting Socket" load screen. This means your adblocking or scriptblocking features are stopping it from connecting (easy to fix) or your modem/ISP settings are blocking power2ool's particular socket (harder to fix). The power2ool faq has some information and advice. (And it was last updated in May 2012 so what you see is probably all there'll ever be, don't expect updates or upgrades.)
