Has anyone used Rolegate yet? https://www.rolegate.com/

It's a persistent chat play-by-post format that looks promising. Wondering if it would work well for BR-style games, better than or in addition to forums (if it can be integrated somehow)?

Also, has anyone found a magical interactive map software, yet?

This would be for just having a BR map with clickable provinces that let you dive into the stats and configure things, ideally build out actions to submit. Clickable map with data tables and forms to submit for actions -- it's amazing it's still so hard to do this.

It looked like Worldographer http://worldographer.com/ had some promise, but I don't think it's interactive enough. Nobody has yet built out a Tabletop Simulator or similar for BR, nor has there been a mod to one of the major strategy games like Total War that I'm aware of (which is more tactical, battlefield focused, anyway, where BR is really strategic, realm focused, on the wider map).

I had been exploring some of the actual mapping/GIS software or even interactive map tools on things like PowerBI, but I don't have enough knowledge of those yet.

Hi,

Well, I was looking in to Campaign Cartographer 3+ so maybe check it out . . .

Hope that it's helpful. Would be interested to see what you come up with.

Best,
