Realm Works: Create Your World. Tell Your Story. Master Your Game

RW nerdtrek ad - FINAL

How many times have you struggled to keep your tabletop RPG campaigns organized? Have you ever lost track of what your players have and haven’t learned? Is “real-life” limiting the time you have to prepare for games? Do you waste precious time during games searching for details from previous sessions, some of which occurred months or even years ago? If so, you need Realm Works!

Brought to you by the creators of Hero Lab®, Realm Works™ is the Game Master’s answer to managing your campaign and your time, allowing you to focus on telling the story to your players. Built by GMs and players, this game-system neutral tool allows GMs to create and master their world like never before.

Realm Works’ intuitive design allows GMs to quickly develop new content, change existing ideas and organize information for easy access and review. Use content from a variety of sources, including pictures, statblocks, Hero Lab portfolios, PDFs, and even audio and video – Realm Works allows you to effortlessly fold material from multiple sources into one Realm, so no more flipping between 3 books, 2 PDFs and your own notes!

As you enter content, Realm Works is smart enough to automatically detect links between different entries. For example, if you have a character named King Lear and you create a city where King Lear is the monarch, the two entries will link together. This eliminates the usual need to manually link topics together, as is necessary in most wiki-oriented applications.

Are you a visual creator? Realm Works also provides powerful visualization tools to help the creation of the story, tie events together and see the implications of the adventure’s plot along the way. Regardless of how you enter the content, you’ll find yourself spending less time doing prep-work and more time focusing on bringing the story to your players.


During Play

During your game, access the content within your realm on-demand during play. If you’re trying to set the scene for your group, display your maps, images and other content directly through Realm Works and share it with your players. Want to display some content but keep some information hidden from players? Use our patent-pending Fog of World™ technology to reveal or conceal the exact content and details you want throughout your campaign.


The Community

Later this fall, Realm Works will also connect to the cloud, to make your gaming even easier. Share your creations with others or find ready-made content from to use in your campaign setting. Back-up your campaigns and also review your work via a web browser. Additionally, players will also be able to access your realm through a separate Player Account, allowing them to review what they have learned throughout play, record their own ideas and experiences in a player journal, and engage in discussion within game forums outside of the session.

Available September 2013, Realm Works is going transform the way you run your games! Follow Realm Works on Facebook for updates and sign up for the Lone Wolf Development newsletter for monthly updates on all products, including Hero Lab and Army Builder. For more information, visit our website at

Realm Works Kickstarter by Lone Wolf Development

image_navigationLone Wolf Development stands out as a leader in providing software for tabletop games.  Their key products, Army Builder and Hero Lab, are award winning products that set the standard to which others aspire.  Their newest product, Realm Works, is poised to follow in those footsteps.  They are currently running a Kickstarter to pack more features into the initial release scheduled for July, and we wanted to share the project with you.

Realm Works is a robust, powerful campaign management system.  It allows GMs to manage their campaigns in ways never before possible.  Realm Works is “game system neutral”, and can be used no matter what types of games you play.  Its flexible nature offers benefits to a wide array of GMs and doesn’t dictate you use a certain style in your campaigns.  Using Realm Works, GMs can create, manage, and share their world using a single tool, rather than trying to cobble things together with multiple, disconnected applications.

Realm Works will be released in July with a substantial feature set, and your support of the Kickstarter will result in the delivery of more features sooner than otherwise possible.  Some of the key features already built for the initial release allow GMs to:

  • Quickly develop new content and revise existing ideas for any genre (e.g. fantasy, sci-fi, modern,) and any play style.
  • Effortlessly manage diverse content, including images, maps, Hero Lab portfolios, statblocks, audio, video, and virtually anything else.
  • Intuitively organize content for on-demand access and review during play, placing everything at your fingertips for quick and easy retrieval. No more leafing through pages of notes to find the information you need!
  • Determine exactly what information is known by the players and what remains hidden at a glance.
  • Incrementally review and display every aspect of your world to players, including maps, using their patent-pending Fog of World technology.  Realm Works makes it a breeze to do this, requiring only a single mouse click.  This functionality revolutionizes how you share your world with your players, easily showing them only what they learn during the game.

You can find even more about the features in the initial release that will transform your RPG Campaigns on the Realm Works Kickstarter page and on Lone Wolf’s web site.
