Encyclopedia Update Released

Finally, the moment we've all been waiting for is here - the Encyclopedia Update is live!

This update we focused on creating an entirely new section within the software called the Encyclopedia! Here are the most significant changes with this most recent update:

  • Encyclopedia – A place to store your vast worldbuilding and lore! We suggest using it to record your creatures, magic, history, social class structure, languages… The possibilities are endless.
  • Factions – Create groups of characters and store them in a collapsible group in the Character sidebar. We planned this feature for the end of February, but we moved it up to January by popular demand! Easily sort your characters by any grouping you desire: villains, heroes, side characters, cyborgs, dragons, etc.
  • World & Location Types – Added more world and location types in the worldbuilding section.
  • Various QOL Changes and Bug Fixes

This past month we have been hard at work on the business side of Campfire. Along with adding the Encyclopedia, we are working on updating the website, migrating to an improved newsletter service, and sponsoring writing conferences. Let us know if you will be attending the AWP conference in Portland in March or the Muse and the Marketplace writer conference in Boston this April! We will have booths at both events, so be sure to stop by and see us!

We hope you all are enjoying using Campfire. As always, we’d love to see what you create on social media if you’d like to share it with us on any of these sites:

User Feature Request Update Released!

Hello storytellers!

This update we focused on general features most commonly requested by users! Whenever you fill out a feature request form, we assess the best place for it on Campfire’s Roadmap. These features didn’t fit into any of our future planned updates, so we put them together to create the User Feature Request Update!

  • Lock/Unlock Panels in Place – Gone are the days where you would perfect your layout, only to accidentally move a panel and ruin your masterpiece!
  • Custom Sections in Events/Locations – You’re no longer restricted to just the general description sections we provide you with, now you can add your own!
  • Improved PDF Exporting – Custom sections across Campfire now appear on the exported PDF.
  • GIF Support – Bring even more inspiration into your work with gifs!
  • Save Pop-Up (Windows only) – We’ve added a pop-up asking if you want to save changes before closing the edit character sheet if you haven’t clicked the “update” button. There is also a clickable box to keep you from seeing the pop-up anymore.
  • Update Button QOL Change – Update button is more visible.
  • Autosave – No more losing your work! Just go to Preferences to adjust your autosave settings.
  • Nicknames in Sidebar – Checkbox in the 'Edit Character' window to use a character’s nickname instead of their real name in the sidebar.

We hope you all are enjoying using Campfire. As always, we’d love to see what you create on social media if you’d like to share it with us on any of these sites:

About This Software

Complete your character design, plot manipulation, and worldbuilding all in one place. Designed to be a revolutionary tool for writers to plan out their stories, Campfire Pro is the writing software novelists and screenwriters need to go from the seed of an idea to a detailed plan that’s ready to be executed.

Character Development: Add characters with essential information like name, age, and personality traits. Then flesh out your characters by adding backstory, relationships, and custom panels.​

Plot Design: Use the powerful Timeline tool to add scenes and other plot events. A straightforward drag-and-drop interface allows for easy reorganization and story manipulation.​

Worldbuilding: Campfire Pro is also a full-featured worldbuilding tool. Upload an unlimited number of maps, then add pins for each location. Flesh out your locations with history, culture, and politics.

Campfire strives to be flexible and inspiring, providing a variety of features to achieve these goals. Each character has their own cork board, which holds an unlimited amount of custom panels and images. The Timeline is infinite, allowing writers to work with an endless canvas as they add a plethora of scenes and events. The World page allows users to upload any number of maps and pin locations onto them, creating a concrete, visual resource to geographically keep track of the story. Finally, Campfire’s seven themes provide different aesthetics to work within, keeping writers inspired regardless of genre. Fantasy novelists can expect a medieval-style writing experience, while Sci-Fi writers receive a visually high-tech version of Campfire. For writers who don’t want a dramatic theme, the Simple Light and Simple Dark themes allow for a plain, distraction-free writing experience.
