Why did you make this?

Long story short, my regular tabletop group wanted to play Annalise remotely over the internet. When reading the rules, however, we couldn't find a good way to randomize and pass the secrets around.

So, I tossed together a really quick version of the site that takes secrets and then can assign them out to different players. One thing led to another and I decided that "why not make a full tabletop system to help facilitate the actual gameplay too?". Several months of tinkering on-and-off and here we are, the v1 of Annalise Helper.

Why not just use Roll20?

Roll20 is great! It definitely allows you to pass out cards, but I couldn't quickly figure out a way to take input from other players and then pass them out without revealing the whole deck. This also scratched the itch of wanting to keep my programming skills up-to-date.

Plus, I figure a full-on Roll20 mod would be too far into the realm of game design.
