The Diplomacy Tournament Manager (DTM)
The ARMADA DTM (now replaced by the newer, cooler, DCM) is a Microsoft Windows application used to seed and score Diplomacy tournaments. Sounds simple, doesn't it?

With the DTM, a tournament director can concentrate on directing the tournament, not on the mundane tasks of determining who plays who and how many points each player has earned.
