By now you probably have hundreds of cool dungeon designs running around your head. But how can you create these dungeons and share them with your friends? Well a good friend of the D&D website, Randal "Jailoco" Meyer, has created a really cool drag-and-drop dungeon tile tool. And, he's given us a personalized copy for the D&D website as well as a nifty guide on its use. This tool includes all tiles from Dungeon Tiles I, Dungeon Tiles II: Arcane Corridors, Dungeon Tiles III: Hidden Crypts, Dungeon Tiles IV: Ruins of the Wild and will be updated with future sets.

Mapping Tutorial Using Free GameTable Mapping Software Patrick Crusiau Mapping Game Sessions Real-Time If you wish to play via Internet, or use a computer monitor as your battlemap, there are virtual game table applications available, among which I recommend GameTable. It is user-friendly and intuitive, it is free, and it is freeware you can modify and distribute. It is, moreover, a Java program, usable with any computer or operating system. Scan any map, or sketch your own, then place small images used as tokens, and you will never have to clutter your table again with unpainted lead figures. Although intended for Internet play, I mostly use GameTable as a normal gaming board, with the players moving their figures on the screen during normal face-to-face game sessions. In this case, I use an external screen and I run two instances of GameTable on my computer: one on my laptop, behind my gamemaster screen, and the other on the external monitor, facing the players.

Tips For Drawing A World Map « DnD Corner Creating a world from scratch is a daunting task. Personally I don’t recommend it unless you know that you are going to be playing a long campaign and that everyone is behind the idea. However, sooner or later most of us decide to at least make a drawing of the fantasy world we have imagined. Here are some tips to make the job a bit easier and to get a more coherent end result. 1 – Start with a coast-line. Draw out the continents first. 2 – Decide where the mountains go. 3 – Decide on the major civilizations as well as major volcanoes and deserts. 4 – Finally add other geographic features like forests, plains, small swamps and other geography that will not have a major (i.e. global) impact on the civilizations. Until next time have fun drawing your worlds. Welcome to Dungeons and Dragons Corner . You can find Character Sheets Here .

Battlegrounds Home Where to find OOP books on the internet > Previous Editions General There seems to be a new thread started every so often about where someone can find used OOP books to purchase. I thought it might be a good resource for the OOP boards if we had a sticky thread addressing that question, so I PMed WizO_Catoblepas about it. This is the reply I got. WizO_Catoblepas wrote on 06-29-04 05:05 AM: I didn't have a problem with it but just wanted to run it by Paradox. Well, I finally got a hold of him and he doesn't have a problem either. If you want to write it, that's fine and I can sticky it. So, if you know of any good places to buy or learn about OOP gaming materials, please post to this thread. :edit: Also see WizO_Catoblepas' comments below for further posting guidelines and caveats. Also, please, don't turn this into a spam thread, and if we could keep off-topic or non-informational posts to a minimum, that would be good too. BTW - Thanks again Catoblepas and Paradox for allowing us to sticky the thread. Noble Knight Games Titan Games The Acaeum Pen & Paper
