It has been a while since I've used One Note. I use Evernote for my notetaking and management.

Although I've seen people do some cool things with OneNote, it seems like it is far more work than it is worth. Does it autolink, or suggest links when you create content links?

I don't think so. I know OneNote will let you add links to webpages but I do not recall seeing the ability to add internal links. It was one of the things that really drew me to RW from it when I switched.

I use OneNote every day for work. It is indeed an awesome tool. Just not for RPG management IMO. It does not have auto linking. You can tell it to link to a topic/page by typing [[page name]].

So you need tell it where you want each link which is a fair chunk of work.

Same with myself...

OneNote is VERY useful for collecting information that I will later enter into RW... but as an information management system for an RPG on its own I find it lacking.

Consider Evernote a stack of interlinked index cards, and OneNote an interlinked notebook.

Slightly different paradigm, but similar in many other ways.

Thanks, that's helpful. And, like Gray Mage, I use Evernote to collect material to use in my games as a prep for what will go in RW.

I'm running Curse of Strahd now, though, so I'm not using RealmWorks currently. I use the book, Evernote, and have DnD Beyond open (not a fan of DnD Beyond for adventure material, but very helpful for pulling up spells and monsters or looking up a rule).

For combat tracking, college ruled notebook paper and pencil. :-) 5e is pretty easy and the Angry GM convinced me to stop dinking around with magnetic combat pad or software for something that just isn't as complicated as we like to make it.

I do find myself creating 5e characters in HLC, however, for the print outs. DnD Beyond's character sheet needs work. I find the online version clunky to use and the print-to-pdf functionality to be horrible compared to HLC.

I've moved a lot over to OneNote mainly because it is available on multiple devices, makes extracting text from images pretty easy, and is easy to get content into and OUT of.

Authoring Kit Rule Sets (now with functioning links!):

Qin: The Warring States

Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space

MEGS/BoH/DC Heroes (work in progress)

Per Char I was told before the KS ended was working just the interface was clunky.

I am so glad I told my friends to wait until things were working to buy, as only I got taken.

I check back once or twice a year to see, if it is in yet.

It is interesting (and sad) how many of us have stopped using RealmWorks.
