- Getting Started
RPG-Campaign.com is your tool for online role playing campaign planning. Use our features to document your game world, schedule games with your players, keep a campaign log, and even store your characters online.
Get started by checking out the introductory videos:
Part 1: Setting up the campaign.
I've had to temporarily disable commenting on the site. I've found possible evidence of a security hole in the system, and until I can either disprove the hole, or fix it, I'm turning comments off.
I've also been experimenting with some ideas about how to accomplish what I'd like to do with a game planning site. A few of the things I would like to accomplish are really hard with drupal (the current software), but well supported by other packages.
This is about a year late, but I'd like to give a shout out to All Games Considered, who were nice enough to mention us as a campaign planning resource last summer. It's actually a pretty fun podcast to listen to, run by three experienced gamers. They have several different segment styles and cover a wide range of topics.
This is a crib sheet to help you define criminal organizations in your game. The file can be edited with any text editor. It is intended to be processed with the Docutils set of tools, but you can just as easily keep it as a text file, or import it into your favorite word processor.
I've got a few different electronic calendars that I use, and it's nice to be able to synchronize them with various sources. Today I realized that one of them I hadn't done was my gaming schedule. If you'd like to do it too, all you need is an iCal compatible calendar program (that's most of them, including Outlook, iCal, Mozilla Lightening (part of Thunderbird) and most smart phones.

The per-group forums are closed, permanently. The module which provided that feature has a major security flaw, and it is no longer being maintained. For most of you this won't be a major loss anyway: most groups didn't use their forums, and those that did used them only intermittently.
I'd really like to improve this site to make it easier for people to use, and do a better job of supporting your game. If there are things about the site which don't seem to work for you, or things you'd like it to do that it doesn't today, please drop me a private email and let me know (contact form at the left). There are a couple of things to think about if you're already using the site:
I've spent a little bit of time over the holidays thinking about what improvements need to be made to RPG-Campaign.com, and one of the first and easiest to do was to let you upload character sheets as part of a character. So through the magic of Drupal, I have added two Character Sheet fields to the Character form.
I have updated the site so that editing your documents is much closer to a traditional word processor. I have been using this feature on other web sites for a few years, and have found this editor to be excellent for most purposes. The new features now also include the ability to upload images and embed them into your content, and to embed links to popular video sites. Your previous entries should still work fine, and they will continue to work and to use the old markup features. New content will be created using the newer Full HTML editor with the nice toolbar.
