Alternatively, the GM can review revealed data to easily offer a recap at the next session.

If you think of this as a kind of private Wiki for a campaign, it makes more sense, I think.

A private Wiki is a good description!

I prefer self-linking wiki.

This is the way I described realmworks to Fantasy Grounds users:

Think of Realmworks as a self-building non-web wiki.
It can automatically generate most links between topics and will bring up resolution dialog as it makes links if there is a conflict.
You can also designate which information to reveal to players

I've been following since the Kickstarter. Every date they've given has been their best estimate at the time. When you give a date, and then have to replace a key staff member, you're not going to meet that date. When you give a date, then discover a bug that requires a rework of the whole backend, you're not going to meet that date. I'm glad they stopped giving dates, because every time they did something broke

Is Masterplan still a thing? That's what I used to use. It was designed for 4e, but was passable for other versions of D&D.

That said, by the time you get through the learning curve of another product the Content Market should be up and running. Might be a good way to pass the time

Masterplan is dead to my knowledge. The link doesn't go anywhere. I still have a copy though. Found it last night during a HDD clean-up. If RW was ever an infant i imagine it looked alot like MasterPlan

Wiki does it injustice IMO. Realm Works is so much more.

It's a dm binder full to the brim of every piece of information I have ever found that I thought might be useful that's is perfectly organised and goes out of its way to help me find the information I need when and where I need it. Realm Works is my OCD side. It organises everything to enable me to forget about organisation while I am running a session. It let's me let the story take control because I have faith that Realm Works is there backing me up when I need to get back on track quickly. It's got a much better memory than me which means my stories are lasting longer and becoming more details. It's the reason I will make the leap from pre made content to building a world of my own.

Having some issues with OCD myself, this decribes it quite well, daplunk. And that is my personal reason, why I did not jump ship. Even though Dark Lord Galen's problems sound just like my problems. And I hope those missing features will be implemented quite soonish after the opening of the CM.
