So my campaign setting uses a major adjustment to the class, subclass, and leveling aspects of 5e.

While all 13 classes cam be chosen, the campaign only has a few subclasses unlocked I have set up a system to unlock most all the subclasses.

This is all written by hand on college ruled loose leafs, and I'm trying to find a way to make a digital or even typed way of showing this that is legible to someone besides me.

By acquiring a number of levels in a subclass, you can unlock new subclasses. Most could be linier, except when multiple requirements need to be met, and not necessarily from the same branch.

I'm not sure what I should be looking up, because all the games that inspire my set up are just referred to by their own game/community's term for the mechanic.

If I could use a budget application to fill in and connect all the subclasses in the convoluted way I've devised that would be ideal. Because putting it in an excel spread will only improve the reading process slightly, I'd like to keep the positions to better express the relationship between subclasses.

So what do I search for rebuilding a web of words, levels and arrows?

    \$\begingroup\$ I might have misunderstood the question, but if it is about asking for advice on which tool to use, you might want to ask the question on a more traditional forum, since "shopping" questions are off-topic here. If that wasn't the point of the question, reformulating to make it clearer might help attract better answers. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ I'm not sure how inquiring about terminology is shopping. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ I highly recommend checking out the Are Game Recommendation Questions On Topic, Revisited meta, which is also linked in the closure reasons above your question. It should give some explanations on that. I have to admit terminology is pretty difficult to explain in a few words, the way I understand it is that questions that ask for recommendations on tools, games or such are categorized as "shopping", and thus off-topic here (most likely because of their highly subjective and biased nature). \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ @Xisnue whether the question is on topic here, or whether you ask it elsewhere, I suggest being less vague. Legible, not Excel, and "web of words, levels and arrows" are really the only concrete information you're giving about what the software should and shouldn't be capable of... and it's not much to go off of. I bet that if the right person sees a screenshot of your the stuff you wrote on paper, they'll instantly know what kind of software suits your needs. \$\endgroup\$
