Road Map

The core idea behind the Way-finder apps is to create a more approachable method to creating,  maintaining, and improving  your characters , and campaigns . It also aims to be a creative frame work for artist and writers who want to be recognized for their work.

Not features:

Native local program not  a web app

GM tools can create local server for non internet enabled locations

Asynchronous connection to server when local server used. Changes updated to server once internet connection is restored.

Asynchronous database connection, for all races,items,abilities,etc. For speed.

Character locking (once you are in you are in) .
