BEAK, FEATHER AND BONE
Beak, Feather and Bone is a map-making TTRPG. It works quite well with two players, though I’ve never tried it with more than two.
This is a great tool for making timelines. It’s not easy to write a story without a clear understanding of the timeline of the story world.
WONDERDRAFT A very cool app for making maps. Start by making a map in Wonderdraft, and then take it through to Beak, Feather and Bone to flesh it out.
