Herald

Herald is an online tool for creating battle reports for miniatures wargames. Herald is currently in public alpha, which means there are enough features to make it usable, but not enough for me to be finished with it, nor any real documentation. Please report bugs or suggest new features in the comments on this page, particularly anything that is useful for supporting whatever game system or miniatures you’re using.
