The Keep 2.0

Personal Information Manager for Gamers

Finally there's a personal information manager designed specifically for gamers... The Keep v2.0 from NBOS Software. Use The Keep to organize and track all your gaming information. Use it for your campaign notes, campaign logs, maps, handouts,... all the information you need to track for a successful campaign!

The Keep is the perfect tool for Game Masters and Players alike! Quickly access and organize your campaign information - scenarios, creatures, maps, treasure, and more. Players can use it to keep track of all their characters, notes, henchmen, magic items, spells, and strongholds. Have more than one campaign? Not a problem! Use The Keep to organize any number of campaigns.

Keep track of your gaming information
Keep track of all your gaming notes, session logs, maps, images, character sheets, and other handouts. The Keep is designed to be helpful to GM's and Players regardless of the game system played. Use The Keep to track information for any number of campaigns.

Intuitive Folders
Organize and sort your campaign topics using an intuitive folder structure. Topics can be dragged and dropped to re-arrange them in your folders as well as copied. Topics can also be sorted alphabetically, or manually, so that they appear just as you'd like to see them.

Runs from portable drives
The Keep can, if you wish, be installed right onto a portable USB Flash Drive or other portable drive. Then you can take your campaign notes with you to your game, or have them available to work on whenever inspiration hits.

Multiple Databases
While The Keep can handle very large amounts of data, sometimes you want to keep different collections of notes separate - for example, notes for different campaigns. You can create multiple databases in The Keep, and switch between them easily. Integrated Word Processor
The Keep features a built-in word processor for your campaign notes. The word processor supports multiple fonts and styles, paragraph formatting, lists, and tables. It also features a customizable spell checker with support for multiple languages.

Revision Tracking
The Keep can maintain a history of changes to your topics, allowing you to view prior versions or even revert back to older versions if desired. Revision Tracking is handled automatically by The Keep - or, you can create new revisions whenever you'd like them.
Your note topics can support hyperlinking to other topics in your database. So you can, for example, link a reference to a monster in a scenario to that monster's topic page for quick access. You can also place hyperlinks in your notes that link to specific pages in a PDF

Quick Logs
Easily create dated game logs with a single click of a button. No more excuses! Click your campaign's 'quick log' button and a new topic using the current date is created automatically. Just start typing.

Full-text search your notes, maps, and character sheets.

Password Protection
Your database can be password protected to keep 'prying eyes' from seeing your GM's notes!

Dice Roller
The Keep features an integrated dice roller which supports the wide variety of dice rolling combinations gamers need. Roll one or more dice of any standard dice type, drop the lowest or highest result in a row, add and subtract results, and roll open ended dice. The integrated dice roller also keeps a history of your dice rolls.

Fractal Mapper Integration
Take advantage of The Keep's built-in Fractal Mapper map viewer. You can pan and zoom on the map, print it, and even show it on a second monitor... all without opening Fractal Mapper. If you have a copy of Fractal Mapper, you can launch it from within The Keep to edit the map.

Images and Handouts
You can also keep track of all your campaign related images and handouts. The Keep can display images in common image file formats. Files in other formats can be tracked, and launched automatically with their associated application.

PDF Viewing
Since PDF has become a very important format in the gaming industry, The Keep can track and display your gaming PDFs as well right within the program. (integrated PDF viewing requires Adobe Viewer to be installed).

Create Documents
The Keep lets you compile your notes into a single Rich Text (.RTF) or HTML document.

E-Book Creation
You can also save your notes as an EPUB format E-Book. EPUB files are read by many dedicated e-reading devices and mobile apps.

Web Pages
Link topics to either local or remote (online) web pages for easy access to your common web based resources.

Character Sheets
The Keep lets you track and edit Character Sheets created with the free NBOS Character Sheet Designer. Easily create new character sheets by selecting from any of your installed character sheet templates.

When you need a hard copy of your gaming notes, The Keep can print out a document consisting of your notes, logs, images, maps, and character sheets. You can print topics one at a time, or your entire database if you'd like. You can also print player versions, which print only those topics not marked as 'secret'.

Multiple Monitor Display
Display your maps and images on a second monitor for your players!

Inspiration Pad Pro Integration
If you have NBOS's random generator tool, Inspiration Pad Pro (and why not, it's free), you can access all your generators from within The Keep. Roll on generators, and even drag/drop the generator results to create new topics.

Share Files
You can easily share your campaign topics by creating export files which can be imported by other users of The Keep.

Custom topic types can be created using HTML and JavaScript. Nearly anything a web page can do can be made into a custom topic for The Keep.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
