I'm looking for a DM tool like Masterplan for 5e (standalone tool, offline preferred) for making loot tables, plot and quest tracking. Or maybe is there an Add-on to the original Masterplan for other editions?

Apparently WotC has forbidden HeroLab to use the license for 5e, so we won't see support there either. – Jason_c_o Oct 30 '14 at 9:36

The official Wizards-affiliated 5E digital tools were called Codename: Morningstar while in beta, then re-named Dungeonscape and later disassociated with Wizards of the Coast, but they will apparently continue in some less-affiliated form.

This is awesome to note. Thanks for the information. I missed it somehow. – Aviose Aug 1 '14 at 14:47
Sadly, discontinued. – Tritium21 Oct 30 '14 at 9:20

I'd advise you to wait and stick to traditional planning for now. Tho Masterplan is an excellent tool for mapping out your campaign and registering plot-related data, you have to take into account that 5th Edition isn't officially out yet, and it's nearly impossible to develop a software for it on its current state, since we don't even have Monster Data outside of Playtest and Starter Set.

I'm impatient too, but I bet you can make do with Masterplan for now. Only 20 days left for the release of Full Basic PDF, and even then don't expect someone to pull off a DMing software for the time being, give it time.
