Huh… this seems like something that’d be useful in Stonetop.
Anyone out there ever use Kumu.io for relationship mapping in your RPGs? Got a good template to start with? Any advice for getting the most out of it? Alternately, do you know of a better tool?
The link below is an abortive stab at mapping out some of the PCs and NPCs I use in my examples. Not sure I’ll keep building on it.
1) super click-heavy to use… UI isn’t terrible, but it’s not easy either
2) You can color-code or otherwise change connections based on tags (like “enemies” or “allies”) but there’s no easy way to see the unique description of each relationship.
3) No ability to crop/zoom/re-position images within the circles (y’know, like Facebook/G+/etc. let you do). Means you have to crop/center images before uploading. Pretty big pain in the ass.
4) You can make unlimited publicly visible maps for free, but still grant editorial access to specific others. That’s nice.
5) There are handful of public RPG maps out there that are discoverable… but man are they kinda messy. Not entirely sure how I’d actually use a big ol’ map like that once play began.
