With the release of the new GM Notes, we can proudly announce that we have finally fulfilled a promise from our initial DGNFOG Kickstarter campaign that was shamefully neglected for too long. With this new release our GM Notes have gotten the attention they deserve and are now living up to the expectations we always had for them (and beyond!).
"Do you tend to be late with gamemaster notes?
DUNGEONFOG is not just a drawing tool. It identifies each object on the map and converts it into a textual description, creating all the notes you'll need for your game. You can then edit the notes, change the layout, download them as PDF, or access them via smartphone or tablet — they're interactive too!"

And while our first installment of the notes did all those things in its core, we knew that they were nowhere near their potential. We always said we want to improve them, but with all the new feature-requests and ideas you suggested, we constantly pushed them back in our roadmap to get other things done first.
With DEIOS in the making, that will utilize notes as well, we decided that this year we really want to put an effort into making a versatile notes tool that can work for all types of maps, allows proper layouting and gives you a great way to quickly produce notes out of your maps.
And I think we can be proud of the result!
For testing and finetuning we have launched the new GM Notes as BETA for now.
Over the next couple of weeks, we will optimize and add the final touches until we are satisfied with the results.
Upcoming things will be:
