Using a similar approach to the Players' Directory, this will be a stand-alone application consisting of a database of:
- BRP Characters
- d20 Characters
- BRP Deities, Beasts and Monsters
- d20 Creatures
It is anticipated that actual content will be provided by users wishing to share their NPCs/Players and custom creatures with the wider gaming community.
If this proves popular we may expand the Companion to include, for example, mythos tomes, artifacts, maps, plans and other handout material. But that's definitely for the future!
As it stands the database has been designed/tested and application design is underway.
ETA: Final days of 2003/dawn of 2004.
UPDATE 28/01/04: Two things have changed since we posted this news item originally.
1. The application has changed its name to Keeper's Toolkit.
2. Delivery time has slipped ... badly. What can only be described as 'Real Life' has colluded to put presure on me finishing an application for work -- before I get booted out at the end of February. I'll post an update here (again) when I have something to update. If I'm without work in March it will definately be done in March. Otherwise???
Apologies to anyone holding their breath on this one.
