I'm working on an in-game event tracker and organiser, that leverages the power of... sticky notes! Here's how it works: http://dragons.ie/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/IMG_20190507_113036-837x1024.jpg Write down every idea for an event or encounter you have and decide if they will happen Now, Soon, or Later. Stick them on the page and add as many details as you need - ideas, situations, stats, a random table... It is assumed that events are always in progress, so even a situation that is going to explode Later will have signs and portents you can describe to the players. When needed, roll d4 to see where and when something happens: 1. Now and Here (where the players are), 2. Now and There (somewhere else), 3. Soon, 4. Later. If you roll 1 or 2, there is a real situation the players should be dealing with. If you roll 3 or 4, move up the note of your choice in that area and work in a sign of things to come. Between sessions, review your sheet: add details to existing notes and create new ones as needed. I've used it in The Lost City and I've found it easier than my usual d66 table. I can have it in my campaign notebook, move the notes to the inside of my referee's screen as a reminder for next session. I guess I can start keeping post-it notes in my other notebooks for these commute inspiration moments. Any thoughts, lasagners?

Feels like Kanban. Probably useful!

I don't have that exact system but if something is impending I will roll a "hurry up or not?" d6

@Paolo beat me to the mention of the resemblance to Kanban, but with a portrait orientation rather than landscape.

This is great.

Maciatto Monsters: Kanban Khaos Sounds great.
