About Us

Founded in 2005, Anodyne Productions was the definition of the the idiom "necessity is the mother of invention." Born out of a need for an easy-to-use and powerful tool to manage online RPGs, Anodyne Productions opened its doors with the SIMM Management System (SMS), a tool to help game masters spend less time managing the game and more time playing it. Over the last 9 years, Anodyne has delivered premier RPG management tools, first for Star Trek RPGs with SMS, and now for RPGs of all kinds with Nova.

Our mission is simple: provide products of the highest quality. That's been the driving force behind our efforts since the day we opened our doors; we don't just want to meet your expectations for powerful and easy-to-use web software, we want to exceed it.
