What is it?
Midnight/MU Campaign Manager is a support tool for playing the Online
Multiplayer game Midnight/MU. It is intended to be used like a war board. You get
a top down map with lords and armies on it.
At the start of the game you have your lord on the map, and all other NPC lords
on the map are in their correct position... (this data is not coming from the
server so new characters and change positions etc have to be modified outside of
the program or while playing)
Your opponents are at the side of the map.
As you recruit lords you can assign that lord to yourself.

At any stage you can drag the lords around the map.

intended destination, to remind you what you are doing with that lord, or assign
a target to an opponent lord so that you can guess at what they are trying to
The tool grabs data from the server for your game and your lords allowing your
information to be kept automatically up to date. Obviously not such information
is available for you opponents.
The tool also has IE built in, so you can login and play your game from within
it. This also allows for some other extras like lord selection from off the map
The tool is a dot net app. So unfortunately you need that installed... but
anyone who wants to take it to another platform, the source is readily
