Over the intervening years I spent my after work hours tooling around teaching myself visual basic and database modeling in order to build the first version of the Elthos RPG Gamemaster's Toolbox. By 2000 I had a complete version of the software. However, it was programmed in the very dodgy Visual Basic 6, and I felt that letting it out into the wild in that form would lead to never ending technical support headaches. So it remains functional, with lots of never seen in public features that make it a truly Way-Of-The-Future application. To this date some features have never appeared elsewhere in the market. However, most features have been ported over to the revised version called The Mythos Machine.
