|Dungeon Masters Adventure Log|
Record keeping in my early D&D adventures was kept on a scrap of paper. Later these became graph sheets laid as suggested by the “Dungeon Masters Adventure Log”. I had the TSR “Dungeon Masters Adventure Log” and I was always meticulous in my note taking but I only ever used one page of the Adventure Log. It was two nice to mess up and it did not really cover everything I wanted anyway.
So I kept writing on graph paper in a binder and later on sheets in a coil ring book. I still have all of these sheets and it is interesting to look at.
As soon as computers and printing became more accessible I started creating custom adventure log templates that I could print and use. The ultimate expression of this was my Runequest on Harn logbook that was printed at Kinko’s and coil bound (see photo).

From there I had a brief period where I was running my adventures and tracking in a logbook in HTML. I was not clever enough to allow a lot of note taking in the HTML forms so it was more a record of the characters. But it was useful in that I could have the adventure notes, maps, character sheets and encounters all in one program.
