when you play a campaign for years, you tend to forget a lot of things, like which NPC you met where and under which circumstances. My goal is to replace the handwritten diary of tabletop RPG sessions by some online tool, where the players can edit the progress and keep track of what happened.
I imagine the following:
- online, with write access for all players
- Similar to a Wiki, the diary would have pages for all (player and non-player) characters, locations, and maybe also for items.
- Anyone can make notes about a scene in play. When the name of a character, location or item is used, the diary scene should automatically link to the respective pages, without the need to interrupt the writing flow to insert a link manually. Much like facebook does it for names.
- The page for e.g. a character would automatically contain all scenes where the character's name was mentioned. The same is true for locations and items.
Are you aware of a diary tool or wiki with automatic linking? I am not looking for GM tools to keep track of stats or loot, just a simple, hassle-free diary.
Thanks for any suggestions!
