Geeky Uses for TRIM Context

I woke up this morning from a dream about how one of the biggest groups of new customers of TRIM Context were players of Warhammer (I suspect it was actually Warhammer 40,000, but it was never specifically said in my dream). As far as I can remember, I never saw any of the specifics of how TRIM was useful, but I do remember having a fairly interesting in-dream conversation with one of my managers about some new features we were going to add for the wargamers that no-one else would use.

It got me thinking - both in my dream and then when I woke up - about other super-geeky areas that TRIM might be an interesting fit for.

Warhammer 40,000: Never having actually played, I can only take a guess at how it would be useful. But for an individual, I'm sure you could use TRIM to help manage your army. Each unit would have it's own record, so you could set up different armies using Locations or Containers. If you wanted to get really tricky, you could track individual unit's rules on the record to make it easy to find.

World of Warcraft: A dataset controlling all items, creatures and powers. You could easily manage changes from patch to patch and quickly find (for example) everything that gives a +12 Intelligence bonus. If you wanted to get really tricky, you could either use the Location system to track where different things are found (or what they apply to), or you could use it to track who's responsible for maintain it or something. A groovy SDK app would let you generate the code required at build time.

Any Tabletop RPG: The GM could use TRIM to track NPCs, PCs, items, maps, everything. If everyone had TRIM, you could use security to let the players see some only some information. It also provides a nifty way of keeping tack of what's happened in a campaign. New rules, equipment and monsters could all be added as they became available so you've always got access to the latest stuff.
