I love Realm Works but want to give party members access to create data. I know that it has been discussed in future releases but I dont want bet on that. So I was thinking a few things and not certain if any anyone had tried them...

1. Getting my main player a DM copy of Realm Works and exporting only known npcs/places/etc to a copy they could keep separately and I could do periodic updates.

2. Running RW on a cloud drive (not WW Servers) and playing around with multiple copies.

3. ??? Other Ideas.

I have a fairly complex campaign and it would be a better experience if the party could adjust game notes..
If USER Note were not local, player only that would be a big step in the right direction.

Thanks.

RW will not run except from a specific install location. you can redirect where it installs the db but even that has to be local to the machine where RW runs.

Trying to do collaboration type uses of RW are, to put it mildly, very messy. Repeated imports of the same realm rarely work. The shared campaign world a several of us are working on, details are in the RW in action forum, has required me to import into an empty realm several times rather than into the existing realm.

Probably iam not helping when i say...
that it just does not sound convinient until there is proper support within realm works. Until then these are player should grow themselves a pair and organize whatever notes they would like to take & have. You as GM should not feel obliged to provide them with the pen, the paper, and the forms already done so they can lazily enter 2-3 paragraphs below your notes.

At most I would use the export + convert to html to provide them with the topics in HTML (see the grest tools available from eightblitz or farling).
