Ye Olde Map Maker

You can go there and design a flash based map and then print it out for your game. If you want to save your map, you have to register at the site. You can either save the maps as private or public. A public map means anyone who is registered and wants to load a map has the ability to see and use yours. If you alter the map, you can save it under another name and thereby add to the collection available to use.

"The WrIN4 application, available for Mac and Windows, is deceivingly simple. The menus and tabs are easy to understand and use, but behind these screens are added drag-and-drop features that make editing almost fun. The Tools menu has helpful things in it like “Create Random Character,” which will create a character for you based on typical story archetypes."

On a personal note this is the most easy-to-use and comprehensive pieces of software to create books / novels / background info. I urge you to at least try the demo and you'll see what I mean! I have it and it's invaluable.


Here's something I'm working on. ;)

I have a great piece of software to show it here too , but it's shareware so if you have the money you must pay ... as for me , my friend didn't used it anymore ( he told me about it ) and he gave me he's license :) so i basically got it free .

AKoff Music Composer

You just sing , hum or whistle but i just hum into the microphone ...and it creates midi .
You can choose pitch bend control and all the midi instruments .

It's not perfect of course but if you put some work into it you can do great music just by whistling or humming

Look at a sample midi i made by just humming into the mic]click here

Here's something I've just come across:

Masterplan is an adventure planning / campaign design tool for Dungeons & Dragons (4th edition).

Answer this question: When you're preparing a D&D 4E game, what do you need to do?

* Organise your plot?
* Detail the campaign world?
* Create interesting, balanced encounters?
* Build dungeon maps?
* Design engaging skill challenges?
* Distribute level-appropriate treasure parcels?
* Create stats for custom creatures?
* Create campaign-specific game mechanics?

Whatever your answer, Masterplan helps with that.

You can also use Masterplan during game sessions, displaying all sorts of game information to your players, such as:

* Maps and handouts
* "Read-aloud" text
* Combat encounter maps
* Initiative order
* Creature stats
* Campaign background information

I haven't tried it but it's free! MasterPlan Website

I am a music lover and thank you sharing here in Adrift Forum what you have learned. A website that is offering a free music download and that is a big help for me. :) Also, I have a good hand when it comes to image editing, when I have spare time, I am making myself busy by editing using photo shop and corel. Those who have so many features and you can do amazing things with it.

Trello (like pinboard with cards style browser based app)

Just want to share a web based tool that i am using at the moment and is free, called Trello
You can use it to organise and create (a board as it is called per project) your own lists and make notes to track bugs, ideas, To-do, done, working on etc. Think of it as a pin board with cards would be a good way to describe it. Its very easy to use and has a drag and drop; so you can move a listed bug to the Bugs fixed column by dragging it over. You can write more words inside a note if its wordy. The other great thing about this is, it can be used by a group of people who are working on a project together. You can right click on a note and choose a label colour and you can reorder the listing of cards in a column so if you want higher priority cards/notes at the top you can do that.

If your screen fills up with columns of these you have a scroll bar at the bottom of the screen so you can move it along to the otherside. It automatically saves each new entry/card/idea.
What i like about it, is its so fluid i can move cards i create in one column to a different one after changes are made such as from existing bugs to fixed bugs and and brainstorm ideas could be moved into doing or to-do list. There is a template you can start with that fits. Has some custom backgrounds. At the moment i have two project boards. I do use Xmind a mind mapping app which also has a free version with no hard limits and thats great for brainstorming but i am finding Trello better suited to tracking and organising what needs to be done and has been completed etc.

The free version has Unlimited cards and lists and boards, limits are 10 Team boards (where there is more than 1 user i guess hence team) 10mb per file attachment (which you don't really need i guess).

More info here but in short the free version is perfect for those working on Adrift projects big or small. You do have to sign up and that is also free.
