I will add that if you have a decent character/location/event database, as well as a way of looking at them graphically, that would be worth the price to me even without the structured writing portion -- especially if, as Chris mentions, that's in a database file of known format (SQLlite, SQL Server Express, etc.).

If I can use ODBC or well-known interfaces to use the front-end with a SQL backend, I can avoid the need to hack something together out of Access.

I'll have a chat to my dev team about file formats and see what options are available.
Also interesting to hear the desire for world building databases. Something for me to think about.
Another area we'd like to move into once we have the resources is map generation. I know the current industry leader is very powerful, but again it had quite a steep learning curve, so I think there is probably scope for some software that is more intuitive and easy to use for 'normal' people.
I wonder what would happen if we could integrate the world building database with the map building functionality...

Damn, devinganger and I have said too much! No matter, it's a big market and thus far I've kept what I've created for my own use only.
