Playbook integrates all the components of a complex tabletop roleplaying game
into a single application that can be run on your iPad.

Role-playing, not rule-playing

With Playbook, everything is at your fingertips from rulebooks, adventures, characters, and maps to the most specific character customization - even a hard-earned badge from an epic homebrew campaign. Rolling up characters, running adventures, tracking campaigns and compiling logbooks are no longer chores, but an integrated, shareable experience.
