I know Realm Works was mentioned (and discarded) early, but I'd recommend another look. It's true that LoneWolf has stopped development of this app, but they did get almost all of their intended functionality into it before they stopped, and they have recently squashed the last of the major bugs. They have also stated that if they ever do shut down their servers they'll make it possible to use without online functionality.

It is absolutely the most comprehensive world building/campaign management tool I've ever used!

A full version of the articy:draft 3 tool for designing interactive storytelling is now available for free:

articy:draft 3 is the world's leading tool for creating interactive stories​

articy:draft 3 is the place for all your narrative content: witty dialogue, compelling choices, charming characters, useful items, challenging quests, strategic locations and global variables. Even that idea you once had that you didn’t get a chance to fully explore just yet.

It’s a visual standalone tool for writing branching dialogue, planning and content management with dedicated integrations to Unity and Unreal.

This is intended for planning videogame narratives, but it could be interesting to see if some of the functionality could be applied for tabletop roleplaying as well. (I have no previous experience with this software, but it could be interesting to play with.)

This looks very interesting to me - I was a big fan of Celtx for screen writing when it came out but it evolved into a paid only thing that was 500 times more than I needed so I let it go.

So, let's see what this has to offer to the video game planner ...

This feels like it might be a cool way to do a running campaign "zine" for players and what not. Articles and seasons of articles served by a basic site, configurable in plaintext.

I might experiment with this for my CPRed campaign and see how it goes.

That's interesting. I'm building something very similar mysql. It's Yaml and markdown and not yet completely streamlined. But the idea is very similar. Define a bunch of colors, setup a menu structure and write your text as plain text. If the zine thing doesn't fit your needs @ExileInParadise , you can reach out and maybe my tooling is presentable then.
