The Investigator is a Plyer Driven tool. It is designed to allow players to create a record of Clues that have been discovered and then as a party add additional information to that one record. You can store a large amount of detailed information about the clue including other links and full formatted text.

This is not intended as a GM tool. The interface options are geared around player usage.
