Given iPad integration with XCOM, Alchemists etc. is there any chance that there could be an app that saves having to look everything up?

I can't look for it at the moment, but there are 2 apps on android that replace the matrix part of the book. They haven't inputted the text; either because of copyright or because it would take an age!

I am aware of the app, but given that Zman is owned by Asmodee (who also owns FFG, who made XCOM, Mansions of Madness 2nd ed) and the simplicity of the task, I can't see any reason this can't be done

I have asked this question before too. This is already a wonderful game. An app would make it even better.

An app would allow the game to be played solitaire, I would think. However, I would never use it. A major part of the joy of this game is having another person read your fate to you, miserable or blessed. And laughing. I would never want an app to do my storytelling for me, or to me.

An edit - I'm remembering so many times where the reader was convulsed with laughter, trying to deliver the player's fate to them. An app? No.

Clearly the answer is to have it read things out loud, and laugh.

Do you need more card ideas for the D&D Adventure System games?

It's already been done and the author can't release it.

Also, not quite as "simple" as some would make it out to be.
