Secretary is a program that enables the Dungeon Master of a Dungeons
& Dragons 3.5 game to run her or his game from a computer.
could also prepare a campaign with DM Secretary, print the results, and
use them in more traditional pencil-and-paper tabletop setting.
you use it, we hope this collection of tools and information will make
running your Dungeons and Dragons campaign an easier job!
This program, like everything Occult Entertainment produces, is
FREEWARE. No catches, advertisements, registrations, etc. Just
download, install, and use!
Secretary is written in VB 6. The program basically reads a campaign
file, load its content in controls, validates some user entries and
rewrites them to a campaign file. To help with the programming of DM
Secretary, some knowledge is needed of OOP, especially OCXes and even
better: Win32 APIs (plain calls, hooking and sub classing (I'm a fan of
Dan Appleman)). You must be able to write clean, commented code, merge
code when updating.

and contact the sites "webmeister" - who also happens to be DM
Secretary's Lead Developer. The site will explain what is expected, and
if you have any questions, he'll be happy to answer them.

they don't need any rules."
