I'm about two sessions into running an Urban Shadows game for four players, and we're having a blast. However, the rate at which we are accumulating rumors, locations, and NPCs is clearly too much for my brain and poor MC playbook sheet to handle. 

My solution was to create a Drive folder with charts to track Rumors and NPCs and a custom Google Map to keep track of the locations. I shared it with my players and encouraged them to add to the map or the sheets as they saw fit and they took to it enthusiastically, adding their characters homes to the map etc. 

Below is a link to the folder in Drive (this is a copy of the one we are using). Feel free to steal my charts for templates or to make suggestions for improvements!

Its definitely a work in progress. For example, I still need to go back to my hand written notes for the NPC debts and rumors from the first session and add them to the charts, I'm considering making a separate debt chart, and I plan eventually to make an MC only chart to track Threats. Still, I think it's pretty useful and I am pleased with my conditional formatting rules to color code the factions :-)

Just downloaded my PDFs - they look fantastic! I'm really looking forward to running US with my gaming group in Maryland in a couple of weeks.

One question - Am I correct in assuming that the extra playbooks are backer-only for now? I really enjoyed the morally corrupt arcane librarian Scholar I played in +Mark Diaz Truman's playtest at Origins, and I would love to continue his sleazy adventures sometime!
