This is great and exactly what I want to do for my Shadowrun campaign(s)!

Can you share your experience with the topic templates? As I see, you use custom templates. The scene template seems to use the typical SR format, but what about the others? On the images are only the first two captions or so visible..

Right now, I just translate the topics to german and use them as they are. And it is great to get some inspiration during npc creation or else, but the very detailed structure of the topics forces me to break information down into very very small pieces and somehow tear it apart... or write it all underneath one caption that doesn't fit everything.

How did you approach that?

hey Ich, as you noted I built my own templates to emulate Srun scenes.

I mostly use default or generic ones for the other categories (though not all).

You are right this can result in either a wall of text or tons of tiny snippets with disassociated info all broken up and hard to read.

I tend to lean towards the wall of text, broken up into smaller walls that correspond to the break points in the source books.

Once you get to a certain level of content entry the whole thing starts building reference links and becomes far more helpful than it otherwise would be.

Basically the more work you put in the more utility you get out on the backend but you have to reach a certain base level for it to be any use.

Our campaign spans the globe so I have been entering content from the sourcebooks before my team gets to the locale. I focus on those areas and leave the rest of the world until they have a reason to go there.

This lets them read the background on a location between play sessions so they have something to Roleplay against in-session.

I then reveal more local content as the discover it / the plot demands.

I do wish we had player specific reveal, printing/ export and the ability to run the client on an iPad.
But if lonewolf ever gets the web-view working this should solve a lot of these issues.

Let me know if I can help you with anything else.

cheers

Hmmm, I'm not seeing any of the images in that ShadowRun forum. Clicking on the paperclips not doing anything either.

Many forums require you to be logged in to view attachments, linked media, and such. That Shadowrun forum is one of them.
