Do You Want To Create Worlds?

Adventure Writer employs document linking concepts to create a revolutionary tool for Adventure creation and management. And Adventure or Campaign exists as a collection of documents of varying types, hyperlinked together for easy navigation. Adventure Writer handles all cartography and hyperlinking tasks while enabling the use of any windows applicaton as a plug-in viewer/editor for infinite expansion capabilities.

The Adventure Writer Cartography engine employs a simple tile based approach, and a scrolling terrain selector making map creation quick and simple with a minimum of artistic skill required. Simply select the terrain symbol from the selector, and place it onto your map, its that easy. Right clicking on a map location enables selection of special features such as hyperlinking, captions etc.
