This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Not sure how well this scales - you've basically got 2 characters and a world there. One you get, 10, 20 characters on 4, 5 worlds it might get pretty unwieldy?


Also, looks like it might get fiddly once characters start moving around.


Seems to me you really want an app that handles the interlinkages for you (some kind of database) rather than one where you have to draw them and redraw them yourself.

That is just the start of a sandbox. When the mindmap is finalized, it'll be imported into a writer and made into an adventure PDF and ebook.
