Sojour Solo Virtual Table Top (VTT)

ADD TO WISHLIST >

Sojour is a Windows based Virtual Table Top designed for solo role playing. It is system neutral and can be used with any RPG.

Sojour is primarly used as a journal, but it also includes advanced mapping, tokens and time management. It can even create maps and circular tokens directly from your scenario PDFs!

Once bought, Sojour is yours to keep. There are no subscription fees, online servers or DRM. All your data remains your data, stored on your computer. Sojour endeavours to store all of its data in a non-proprietory format to let you use that data in other tools.

Sojours Features:

  • Ability to create maps directly from scenario PDFs (or file system)
  • Ability to create circular tokens directly from scenario PDFs (or file system)
  • Scaled maps that can support either the metric and imperial measurement systems
  • Fog of War for maps
  • Smooth map scrolling and zoom
  • Smooth token movement animation, including the ability to having them face their direction of travel
  • Map measurement tools
  • Map drawing tools
  • 3d map tilt for 2d maps - makes them look 3d!
  • Ability to have the map take most of Sojour's window at a click of a button
  • Tooling to create custom calendars
  • Time tracking, including creating events
  • Journals with built in spell checking, dice rollers, conversations and more!
  • The majority of data is stored in a non-proprietary format on your hard drives
  • Ability to export journals to RTF files
  • Unified token sizes that can be tweaked in Sojour, regardless of source image size
  • Data tables and lookup tables for generating events
  • Two built in dice rollers for the journals
  • Trackable characteristics and on-map healthbars
  • Built specifically for solo play
  • Run on the users machine and installed with a standard windows installer. No tedious configuration, no internet connection required
  • Comes with a 142 page illustrated manual and two helper windows
  • Document support for PDFs and RTFs
  • RPG system neutral. Can be used with any RPG
  • Hit point management for Npcs
  • No subscriptions and no drm. Users will have access to free updates when they become available
  • Turn modelling and time tracking, including an initiative tracker

Minimum Required Computer Specs:

  • Windows 10 or 11 (Sojour uses .net 4.7 - a minimum version of .net 3.5 must already be installed - if you don't already have it download it directly from Microsoft)
  • A graphics card that can support Direct-X 9.0 with at least 4Gb of memory
  • 8Gb RAM
  • 200Mb of disk space not including space for user assets
  • Mouse and keyboard

This is an indie project by just one person, hence the relatively cheap price. I wrote Sojour not just to sell, but for myself. I'm currently using it to run three campaigns with three rather famous RPG systems. As such, I will continually improve it as I get new ideas and as you good folk send me ideas (there is an email link in the manual).

If you need more information, look for Sojour on YouTube.

Hi Barnard,
I did some googling around and this does seem to be some kind of permissions issue. Could you take a look at this page and let me know if it helps? https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/error-code-2203-when-trying-to-install-a-program/a1461ca8-f0fd-406d-ae91-c3afc4cf22ce RobP

Hi Robert! Thanks for the quick reply. I changed ownership of the temp folder and ran as administrator but to no avail. The only other reason for the 2203 could be anti-virus/firewall settings but I can't switch those off unfortunately.

Just purchased it and going through the video tutorials. Very impressed by this low cost, lightweight, no-frills, feature-rich, and user-friendly program that beats other overblown (and overpriced) VTTs out of the water.
I can see the primary use in my case is to learn different rulesets and try out published modules. That said, the top item in my wishlist is support for random map generation for dungeons (like tiles and/or drawing) and hexcrawling maps.
Keep up this excellent work!

Thanks Leo. A long way down the road map is this. I have written other games that have map generators and along with campaign cartographer, I have a way of visualizing them. One design issue I'm looking at is pre-population with mobs and treasures - whatever I come up with it has to be system agnostic!

However, to set expectations, I should add that this feature is a long way down the road as there are many other higher priority features that need to go in first :)

Sorry for not phrasing it clearer. What I have in mind is simply support for manipulating dungeon and terrain tiles (in addition to whole maps), and drawing/marking/coloring directly on grids (on top of using just straight lines and circles) like other hex map programs. It's perfectly fine for me if Sojour does not have the generator itself, but providing the tools for the players to generate their own maps would be amazing. What do you think?

Hey Robert,

I am having issues with the zoom. When I try to zoom I always zooms in all the way. Both with the laptop trackpad and with the hotkey Q. Same for zoom out.

Hi Cristian,
Sorry for the late reply - it appears that the new version of this site is not sending me notifications.

Could you let me know if num lock is on and what operating system you are using. Also, if you have access to an external mouse, could you give that a go with its mouse wheel - it will be interesting to see if that exhibits the same behaviour.

There are some minor updates for the dice coming for pooling them into groups. I have no idea what Fate dice are though. If you could describe them, or just send me an email using the address at the front of the manual I can delve into them :)

Hi, really good idea and piece of software.

But please, could you implement a night/dark mode? Would really help with staring at this while playing.
Unless I'm missing an option somewhere...

Robert P December 09, 2023 7:27 am UTC

Alas, there is no dark mode at the moment. I did have a story to implement it and sunk in a lot of hours but it failed due to the older underlying tech I was using. There are two blog posts discussing this here: https://sojour.co.uk/2023/05/21/dark-mode-progress/ and here https://sojour.co.uk/2023/06/10/tilted-maps-and-some-bad-news/

The intent is to get Sojour feature-complete - there is a lot more to add to it - then get the whole thing moved to WinUI3 which will enable a dark mode to be easily implemented, but that's a little ways off. (This will be a free upgrade once complete)

Hi Robert, the size of the icons at 1080p resolution is too big. Could you improve that aspect? In your demo videos it is seen that you use a resolution much higher than 1080p. On your screen resolution the proportion of the size of the icons looks good but at lower resolutions the icons are huge and it does not look as elegant or comfortable since many icons are hidden and remain as drop-down icons in the menu.

Another useful option would be to be able to delete the dice history.

At the moment it is coded to use the default language of the hosting operating system - or at least it should be. Can you let me know if your operating system's language is Spanish or English? Other customers in various European Countries have indicated that it is picking the correct Country - that said, your's is the first report from Spain.

Hi Robert, now I understand! My keyboard layout was coincidentally set to USA-international so it corrected my spelling in English. I put the layout in Spanish and it started correcting in my language. Normally in the application settings I configure the keyboard language manually since I usually use programs in English, I prefer that the keyboard shortcuts are in English because they are usually more congruent and fit better with the tutorials and guides that are usually in English. But I see that Sojour works like MS Word that automatically uses the currently active keyboard layout, which is very practical! Still, I think it would be useful to have an option to be able to edit the language option manually and even be able to disable it at will. By the way I'm from Peru. Greetings.

Hi Fernando, Nice to hear someone from as far away as Peru is using this :) I have raised a story (RPG-375) to add a manual option to the settings. Updates are a little slow at the moment due to us being in the 'silly season' (Christmas period), I would expect to get this one out sometime early next year.

I'd like to, but that would need a public server to allow Sojour to grab the latest. If I go down that route, I'd also need to run my own website to self-publish. Whilst all these things are within my capabilities (I'm a web developer by trade), it's not something I have planned in the near term.

That said, updating Sojour is easy though, there is no need to install intermediate versions, just download the latest and it will automatically update any previous version to the latest.

Brought sojour and love it so far. The only problem is that I use it mostly on my laptop, which does not have a mouse wheel and as such I can't alter the token size from the automatic size. Unfortunately that means that for the system I want to play the tokens are too small on the map. And advice on how to fix that without using the token readjust system that needs the mouse wheel?

Robert P September 28, 2023 7:06 pm UTC

That one's down to me. Alas, I haven't put in any specific code to allow the remapping of the mouse wheel for token sizing. Sojour can support remapping of controls as it already does this for WASD keys on the map. I have raised a story to 1) add remapping for all major controls - including the mouse wheel and 2) to allow a custom token size to be typed directly in the field on the resizing wizard. The story number is RPG-370. Current priority are calendar enhancements, but I will queue this one up to take place immediately afterward.

Hello,

I am very interested in purchasing this software, but I have a question: Is there a way to use a deck of cards in Sojour? I play mostly Savage Worlds and many of its mechanics require a deck of cards. Additionally, I sometimes like to use the GM Apprentice Deck instead of tables. Would that be something possible within Sojour?

Hey! Just bought this and it seems like it might work for my solo games.

One question. I can't figure out how to modify the image in an existing map. Is this not possible?

Alas not. The system allows you to draw on it with crude drawing tools and add text. Plus you can add static campaign asset tokens to simulate new discoveries (those tokens become part of the map). But there is no way to change the underlying map.

That said, I am curious, and it might be that I have missed a trick. What did you have in mind? :)

I have been tinkering around and I’m very pleased with what I see so far. A few features requests:

Games like Forbidden Lands use D66 tables. If the dice roller would support 1d6*10+1d6. I could build the lookup tables without having to convert these tables.

I would also like a dice roller option to just roll a few dice without adding them. For example, just the results of 1d6, 1d10, 1d10 in one line for an Ironsworn Action roll.

Or even better (1d6+2), 1d10, 1d10 with highlighting in green/chosen color when the d10’s are lower then 1d6+2. (The +2 is an example and would vary per Action test)

Great, thanks for your consideration.

Is there a way to prioritize/ finance new features? With the updates being free there is little financial reward for you to keep on developing. Maybe a PayPal funding / Patreon / Ko-fi to sponsor continued development?

I've not really thought of Patreon tbh. :) I'm incentivised to put in new updates because I use Sojour for a number of my own campaigns. The real problem is the fact that I'm the only developer on it, so that kind of puts limits on what can be done. That said, I do have a fairly ambitious pipeline for the project and most customer requests do get actioned! Thanks for the idea though :)

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.
