Download the framework, plugins and data described below in one haul.
Don't forget to read the documentation in the separate sections.
Currently this package contains everything. This archive always contains
the latest versions of the framework and all plugins. It also has a very
short description of the functionality of all contained plugins.
This file includes all code needed to run the UGMT. The zip file shouldn't
be that big, but I included a sound-file that increases it's size
dramatically. Maybe this should be removed. Following is a short list of
the currently available plugins and a short description.
The framework provides the basis for all plugin, i.e. this is where you
plug them in. It includes the runtime and the "repository", which is
used for safe communication between the plugins. A property file allows
you to customize the GUI. Normally all plugins appear in one tabbed
pane. If you want several panes, remove the hashmarks in the file (and
maybe sort the plugins to your liking). You could even add more panes.
The calendar is mostly informational. It will show you the current date.
It also shows the sunsign and moon phase. By clicking, you can stay for
a designated amount of time, which can be increased/decreased. You are
also shown the time until the next dusk/dawn. You can go there by
pressing a button. The right panel shows one month worth of calendar
dates taken from the Hârn sources. Each row lists the events for that
Create characters and modify them. Create HM3 character sheets. Roll
their skills through the skills plugin. Allows development including
veteran characters. See the tutorial section for an introduction.
Create combatants with armour and determine armour values with easy
additions. Use chars and equipment plugins to include premade
Rolls encounter and you may modify them. Key to index, sketch or
descriptions. Conditional tables possible, with conditions "time",
"location", "terrain", "vegetation", "condition", and "weather".
Lets you organize equipment of characters by dragging and dropping things
around. Characters (and containers) are tree nodes, which when clicked
will toggle their equipment (contents).
This plugin allows you to export a few things to a web browser, as might
be had on players' devices. Check the boxes for "map", "index", etc. to
export either a foggy view of the active group's map, the currently
selected index page, etc.. (Cf. index and maps plugin) All you need to
do is hook up a small IP-LAN with your players' hardware. Direct them to
"http://hostname:8080/map", "http://hostname:8080/index", etc..
You can create or remove groups. You can activate any one group, which
is used by many other plugins as reference. The parameters of the
current group are then shown on the right panel, mostly travel related.
Members are added through the char-plugin. The vessel area allows you to
The left tree view shows a selection of possible indices and two buttons
for navigating in the right panel back and forth as a memory aid. The
one selected index is the one active. Each time an entry is selected the
large panel on the side shows it as hypertext. An active entry may have
a correspondence on a map.
Allows you to log weather, locations entered and left, and
events. Free-form additions are possible and later removal of entries,
partly and whole. Time format can be modified. log entries for the same
time stamp are grouped.
The left shows a tree view of available spells/invocations. Drag-and-drop
allows addition of spells to characters' spell set. Magical characters
are displayed on the right side as buttons which expand/shrink to show or
hide the individual spell list. A popup menu allows the calculation of
spell-formulas for characters who have the spell.
Development of magic/priestly powers is extended from the char
plugin. Pressing the develop button will guide you through the few steps
You can locate groups on and toggle "fog-of-war". The tree view shows
all available map-sets (called atlas) and its contained maps. By
selecting one of the maps, the corresponding image is displayed.
You can click on the map inside a selectable entry from the index
plugin and activate it. You can also locate a group on the map by
clicking. Inter-map navigation is also possible.
The sound plugin allows you to play *.au, *.wav, *.mp3, *.ogg, and *.aif
files keyed to specific events (Calendar, weather, locations). There are
very few sounds/musical pieces included, they are free to use. If you
have others, they can easily be added; you can your own sounds from your
This plugin allows you to edit and group small pieces of information. You
can draw sketches and write notes. It is also possible to add formatted
text (HTML) but read-only. Notes can be referenced by other plugins.
This plugin allows you to edit, group, and roll skills. Adjustments can
be made and post-roll situations considered. (What if that adjustment had
been -20 instead of -30, or the climb "easy" instead of "normal".)
The travel plugin shows you the current date. If you right click on the
displayed map in the right panel, it will show you how much time will
pass until you reach that point. If you left-click you go there. You
will see the time of consecutive traveling without rest. Terrain and
vegetation is shown as well as the travel condition. (Mud or snow, on
water wind speed and direction.) You may enter a travel rate of your own
choice or make traveling instantaneous altogether.
The visual plugin gives a a 3D overview of the map the current goup
resides on. It tries to autodetect heights but also supports
heightfields. It respects hidden sections of the map and draw combatant
markers, if any.
The weather plugin will show you the current date. If you right click on
the displayed calendar in the right panel, it will show you how much time
will pass until you reach that point. If you left-click you go there.
It shows the sunsign. Below, the moon phase is shown. Snow and mud
level, which govern travel conditions are shown and they can be modified.
You can stay for a designated amount of time. You will see the time until
the next dusk/dawn. You can go there. You can save the weather. You can
dump old weather that has expired. The right panel shows one month worth
of weather, with 3 day in the past. Each row is one day. Nighttime is
shown by a shade of grey, its length depending on time of year.
The data zip-files are unpacked in the same directory as the
plugins are. The paths the data uses is included in each. Some
data plugins install their data in several directories. (To
deinstall a data package separately, you would need to remove all
files of the zip-file by hand.) The packages contain seperate
copyright statements and are not covered by the software license
above. These sections would not be possible without the many
contributors, for whose permission to host the conversions to the
UGMT I am very grateful. The list has gotten too long to mention
each separately. You can inspect them by looking at the
individual Copyright files. Much data can be obtained in other
form from lythia.com and from
other sites and this.
Examples you need to
download if you do not have your own state files already. These
files will overwrite anything you have saved, so only install
them initially. If you do not have any state files, some things
will not work.
Azadmere contains map and
index data for the Durzhan, Zhakom, Irkhar Kyg, and Mercin.
(Zhakom is located near Azadmere.)
Chybisa contains Angryl, Tyannal, and
a few other spots.
FF&F contains char and sketch data for
NPCs available as "Friends, Foes and Followers".
Generics contains mostly NPCs.
Harn contains Harnic maps with permission
from "the creator".
Kaldor contains index and map data for
the Abriel, Athelren, Charmic, Cyre, Chewintin, two Tashal City Blocks,
Eliten, Goffin, Henewes, Kolorn, Medarsin, Nebulan, Nenda, Setrew,
Stybrin, and some minor ones.
Nick Lowson's map archive
contain several maps from south eastern Harn.
Mappack contains several maps from
Orbaal contains map and index
data for Lorkin, Leriel, Marby, Monthel, Thoen, Sherwyn, and Zuden.
Other things that are not big
enough for a separate archive are combined here. Includes
Glenoth, Kedis, Ravin, Sirion, and Zaurial.
Sounds contains several sound files.
Spells contains several spell
descriptions from various sources. Contact the well-known Hârnic sites
and compare. For those you cannot find contact me for further
Tuomo maps contains several maps from
The Warrior's Grave contains data for
certain adventures near Chybisa.
In case your hardware has restrictions or you want to speed up the tool and
like to leave off a few plugins, here is a list of which plugin require
another. You can then decide what you really need to
install. (Deinstalling is as simple as removing the directory of the plugin
altogether.) The optional column gives plugins which enhance the
capabilities, e.g. the sound plugin cannot key sounds to weather effects,
if the weather plugin doesn't provide them.
