Lovingly built to serve game masters of every system and genre without encumbering you with complexity nor sacrificing depth and inspiration.
The Simplicity of Our Campaign Logger Web App Let’s You Start Plotting, Building, and GMing Within 5 Minutes
Hola! Thank you for being a game master and helping your players have more fun at every game.
We are Johnn Four (Edmonton, Canada) and Jochen Linnemann (Dortmund, Germany), publishers of RoleplayingTips.com and the Roleplaying Tips Newsletter since 1999.
We built this web app because the campaign prep, management, and storytelling tools out there are either too complicated or they offer no guidance at all. Being a GM is a tough job already. Why make it harder with cumbersome software or apps not designed with GMing in mind?
With Campaign Logger, you get a freestyle yet structured toolset that lets you dive in immediately to create your campaigns and easily log all your session details.
Instead of being crushed by complex databases and data entry forms that make you hunt every time for a campaign detail, Campaign Logger makes all your information fast to enter and even faster to retrieve.
Here are Campaign Logger’s major features to help you have more fun prepping and GMing:

What People are Saying
MAKES PLANNING AND PREP WORK FASTER
"I'm loving Campaign Logger, and have started to incorporate loopy planning into my prep-work. Keep up the great work, with both Campaign Logger and the Tips. :)"
Jo-Herman (Senior Developer, Norway)
PERFECT FOR HEXCRAWLING
"During my exploration of this fine program, I've started using it for other functions outside of the basic campaign logging. Specifically, I've found that this program works really well to make custom random tables and map keys for hex crawls. I'm really enjoying this tool."
GREAT FEATURES MAKE LOGGING EASY
"I just got the email about the prefix and suffix additions, and I LOVE it!"
Andrew Shields (Game Designer)
Is This App Right For You?
Campaign Logger is not for every GM. I have a pile of receipts over the years I could show you of stuff I regret buying.
And I never want my work in your regret pile! So here's who I think this is for and not for.
WHO THIS IS FOR
- GMs who like using digital tools to organize themselves.
- GMs who need help taking session notes and tracking campaign details.
- GMs overwhelmed by campaign prep and details — let Campaign Logger sort you out.
- GMs already using an app but want an easier way to take notes and cross-reference all the people, places, and things in your campaigns and adventures - Logger works great alongside other apps.
WHO THIS IS NOT FOR
- GMs who already have a great organization system and can find what they need when they need it — keep doing what's working for you!
- 100% Improv GMs — taking gobs of session notes will just slow you down, and using the multi-tagging and other features for campaign details is probably overkill for you.
- Hardcore Database GMs — Campaign Logger takes an open, flexible, and freeform approach. You organize it according to how your brain works. If you want lots of screens and fields that tell you where and how to put every detail, you will not enjoy Campaign Logger.

I stand behind my work. Like my books and courses, Campaign Logger has my Critical Fumble Guarantee.

Bonus Features of the Web App
We launched Campaign Logger first to a group of beta users who helped us hone and polish the software.
Then we offered a limited-time lifetime license to my newsletter subscribers to further help us fund developer and test Campaign Logger.
You now have the benefit of thousands of hours of testing, feedback, and feature development for a smooth and fast experience logging and organizing your games.
Here are a few new features that become immediately unlocked for you when you subscribe:
Bonus » Generators
You also get immediate access to a library of generators. Generate fantasy names, villages, NPCs, plot ideas and more for instant use in your Log Entries.
Just click on a generator, generate a result you like, and click again to instantly add the details to your notes.
More generators are being added regularly so you can prep faster or get unstuck instantly when in a pinch at the game table.
Bonus » Dice Roller Widget
Campaign Logger is widget-enabled, and the first widget we'd added is an online dice roller.
Roll multiple dice of any kind and number.
Need a d5 to see which character gets ambushed? Need FATE dice, exploding dice, or dice with formulas? Need 24d6 for an amazing area effect?
Speed up your game by rolling attack and damage for several foes at once.
At any time you can also choose to log your dice rolls and add comments! Never lose track of a roll again.
Bonus » Roll Your Own Generators
Late last year we added the ability for you to create your own generators.
This lets you totally customize your game world, your campaigns, your adventures, and even your encounters!
Build simple wandering monster tables for each hex or create complex generators with variables, weightings, and sub-tables to populate entire cities with one button click.
You can not only build any generators you want now, but you get unlimited generators. Unlimited Campaigns, unlimited Log entries, and now, unlimited Generators.

How can I get a refund?

Why should I buy this app instead of others?
What makes Campaign Logger unique is its multi-tagging system. No other software lets you tag all your NPCs, locations, items, plots, and other adventure elements all at once, as you type, without slowing you down. You don't even need to create tags ahead of time - they are automagically created and autolinked as you type.
This saves you a ton of time during prep and while you take session notes. It also increases the accuracy of your notes (because of tag auto-complete and auto-linking).
Best of all, it lets you search and filter with tag combos. For example, bring up a listing of all encounters with the villain's minions, or everything that happened in town on a specific game date, or all merchant transactions with Krug the barbarian PC.
Last, every tag gets its own URL. You can have Logger open in multiple tabs. And you can link to any tag within Evernote, Word, MyInfo, OneNote, etc. This means you get best of all worlds by using Logger alongside your favourite app.
One last thing...
Campaign Logger is my dream app for organizing the thousands of details my campaigns seem to accumulate over time. I also made it awesome for taking fast but thorough session notes.
However, I'm not done with it yet! Jochen and are are adding to it all the time. We're adding new features, more generators, and additional widgets.
The Campaign logger community is always giving us great ideas for new features as well.
So please consider this as investing in a living tool for your GM Toolbox. Jochen and I are having a ton of fun working on and with this app. We believe you will too.
Please buy the app now, knowing you're fully protected with my Critical Fumble guarantee. We look forward to seeing you in the community. Happy logging!
