Hey guys, I've started working on a 0 level adventure for my ongoing campaign group, and i'm having a hard time getting things organised. I have horrible handwriting and as such like to use the computer for room descriptors and flavor text. Does anyone know of a good program that I can use to write and format text and pictures (maps and player handouts)? Preferably free.
If you're generating your own maps -- I use GIMP for most interior stuff (look on the Cartographer's Guild website for many many step-by-step tutorials) and Inkscape for exterior/hexmaps.
Either one of those programs are infinitely useful for diagrams and other player handouts, as well.
The other option for organizing your adventure/campaign material is pbworks -- don't know the situation in your gaming group (paper or electronic or a combination of both) -- but that has been a great resource for me. It's a free wiki and you can control who has access to what pages, etc.
