Birthright Campaign Manager is a tool designed to help game masters and players manage pen and paper and play by email games of AD&D Birthright. It has been built using Microsoft Visual Studio LightSwitch 2011.Birthrigh
is a Campaign Setting created by TSR for Advanced Dungeons and Dragons 2e. It is a setting where players are more than adventurers, they are also regents and rulers of domains and realms. From nobles to archwizards, there is a complex political/strategic level of play added in a Birthright game.
A big problem is that a lot of paperwork is needed to handle the game at this level, and even more in play by email games where usually all the domains and realms are managed (part by players, and part by a GM or group of GMs). Accounting can get crazy pretty fast if not using some tool to help handle it. There used to be a tool called Birmail
which is sadly dead. Other games use huge Excel worksheets or custom tools tailored to their needs. The problem is that these tools are generally private, and they can't be easily used or expanded by others.
Birthright Campaign Manager is an attempt to create an open source tool that can be used by anyone interested in running a game of Birthright. It is built using Microsoft Visual Studio LightSwitch 2011, and it will be able to run as a desktop based application (more suited for private games) or as a web tool (better suited for play by email).
