Anodyne Productions is an organization that developes software management tools for the play-by-post online role-playing community.


Anodyne Productions was founded in 2005 out of the need for an easy-to-use and powerful tool to manage online RPGs. Anodyne describes it's establishment "as the definition of the the idiom necessity is the mother of invention."[1]

It's first product was the SIMM Management System (SMS), a tool to help game masters spend less time managing the game and more time playing it. Anodyne later released Nova, which has become a "backbone of today's play by post community."[2]


Anodyne Productions was awarded the 2012 Simming Prize.
