What sets keep apart from other apps?

Hey folks, I'm just trying to get some info on The Keep. I've been using open source hierarchical note software like Keepnote and CherryTree for my campaigns. I'm curious as to what features The Keep has that really sets it apart from some of the other options out there and what features other DMs have found the most useful.


  • well you can use pdfs, epub publication, IPP3 tables & charts, Astrosynthesis, and so much more. So you get the hierarchical note with the option to put other things with it. Like each encounter can be a full RTF of notes with attached pdfs, images, random tables that roll with a click (AWESOME for random encounters). The best part is once you make a chart it is forever made. So my current library of random charts is 6723 charts with many of the cross linked. Here is an example of my NPC chart.

    Description: Nielinrieth Lirlithhorse is an unexceptional looking young man of small build. He is balding, with gray hair. He is very well dressed. He is walking idly down the street.
