Gloomhaven is awesome and I am having a lot of fun playing it with my family. I wanted to keep our personal quests secret however some of my family members did not understand the quests and now it has fallen to me to explain and track these quests for them... there must be an app for that. I looked and there does not seem to be one on the iPhone. I Would like to make yet another iPhone app.

My intention is to allow the user to toss their:
* map
* stickers
* decks
* monster stats
* player sheets
* party sheets
* any pens and paper


The user will easily be able to run multiple campaigns, with multiple parties and track complicated interactions such as personal quest, city/road cards and so on. To do this I need data... JSON data if I can get my hands on it. I am looking specifically for:
* Road cards
* City cards
* Character ability cards
* Character modifier/perk cards
* Personal quest cards
* Items cards
* Scenarios
* Monster Stats
* Monster Decks
* Battle goals (optional)

Images won't do as the source, as I will need to interact with the data.

I have found a few sources out there, but nothing complete. Here is some of what I have found:
* https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1733586/files-creation
* https://github.com/nsmith40/gloomhavenDatabase
* https://github.com/any2cards/gloomhaven
* https://github.com/sn00p16/LoadedDice
* https://github.com/mwinckler/GloomhavenMonsterStats
* https://github.com/johreh/gloomycompanion
* https://github.com/jason-whitted/gloomy (This one has lots of what I am looking for)

Pure mathematics is the world's best game. It is more absorbing than chess, more of a gamble than poker, and lasts longer than Monopoly. It's free. It can be played anywhere - Archimedes did it in a bathtub

I dont know nothing about it, but wouldnt that app allows to play the game without buying it? I mean what would you need from the game using that app? Just the standees?
One thing is to allow for easy of handle and another to give way to piracy but as I said I dont really dont know nothing about how this things are done or handle it

The data is all available in plugins and apps already. If someone wanted to play the game with standees and mats that they have made themselves they could already do that.

The game is very complicated and self destructing. Meaning that resetting the game, or playing with different groups of friends is difficult. This app will reduce the administration needed to run multiple parties or campaigns, as well as reduce the teaching time because the app will handle it.

For example my wife has a Personal quest cards that needs 15 missions to complete. She is not going to track that... so it means I will. My dream is that the app will track and alert the user that the quest is completed.
