autumnotopia asked:

I really like the way you do your dungeon tiles (the cardboard ones specifically)! I may steal the idea for a game I'm running. If I can, I just want to check a couple of details to make sure I have the right ideas. For the grey tiles, did you just spray-paint the cardboard? And for the placement-squares did you freehand/ruler the crosshairs? In any case, your maps look really cool, well done!

Originally I planned on answering this with a short video tutorial, but I’m having mad trouble with Final Cut Pro at the moment. It’ll happen, just maybe not today…

Here’s the steps involved:

  1. Cut out the tiles from cardboard.
  2. Hot glue the walls/borders onto them.
  3. Spray paint or hand paint them black. 
  4. When dry, spray paint them with grey stone texture paint.
  5. When dry, paint the borders with a black acrylic/water wash for a shadow effect.
  6. When dry, mark the tile positions with sharpie.

Why can’t I get this video to work…

Short animation I whipped up for my D&D Encounters game over Google+

The style is blatently copied from LORE on YouTube. You should subscribe to them. 

And to me, please. 

Did a search for Baldur’s Gate and saw my own video come up in the YouTube feed. Any of my new followers, if you haven’t see this, check it out.

UPDATE 09/16/14: Added a second page with rules reference for all kinds of things that have come up at my table. You can also download a PDF version here.

Inspired by Zak S’s post about quick fifth edition character creation. 

The Asterisks beside some of the backgrounds denote that they are optional builds of the background above them (ie, Spy is a variation on Criminal). Lemme know if any of it doesn’t line up or make sense.

Check out the new page of content!

New Followers + Upcoming Reviews + Donations?!

To the 98 or so new people who’re following me, hello! Hey. Hiya. How’s it goin? Thanks for the follow. If you haven’t yet, check out my 'Best of' page. It’s got all my most reblogged/popular posts. 

Also, I’ve got some news. 

D&D Fifth Edition Reviews:

So I’ve reviewed the new D&D Starter Set and the Player’s Handbook. Both of which I liked very much. Since then I’ve also gotten a copy of Hoard of the Dragon Queen

It, along with the upcoming Monster Manual, probably won’t get a review from me until early October. 

Why so late? Well, first, I’m not due to receive review copies of upcoming Wizards of the Coast products until after the Monster Manual ships. There was a communications mix up, and now I’m not getting a copy early. Second, I’m absolutely strapped for disposable income at the moment, so even though copies of the MM are available early, I won’t be able to pick one up until October 1st at the earliest. 

I’m sorry for the delay. I’m hoping to have those reviews up ASAP. I’ll just sit here waiting…playing anagrams…taking a person’s name and then rearranging the letters to form a description of that person…

Actually…you know what…I’ve got over a thousand followers now…maybe you can help me out. 

DONATIONS MAYBE?!

Above is a PayPal Donation link. If an early review of the Monster Manual is something you really want (or you just want to contribute to the continued success of projects and art posted here) please leave a donation. 

Any donated funds will be put towards a review copy of the book. If successful, the book will be reviewed, and then I will ship that copy to one of YOU, the donators! Said donator will be chosen via a random drawing. 

Any/All people who donate will be mentioned at the end of the review. If you have a site or tumblr of your own that you’d like to promote, leave a link in the PayPal donation comments box. I’ll be sure to include it. 

Thanks again.

All the homemade dungeon tiles, wet-erase maps, and little miniatures in action. 

Tokens are from D&D Essentials: Monster Vault. Best way to have a huge amount of monster minis for cheap.

Here are some early card templates I made for my Friday game. Art isn’t final. 

It’s a new initiative system inspired by the Momentum System from Thornwatch. (skip to 49:00 for an explanation). If you’re not following this game, you totally need to

It’s not the best fit at the moment, especially for online play, but I can’t get this mechanic out of my head. I love it. This is how I tend to do game stuff. I think of an idea, or I see an idea I like, and then I try to replicate it in Photoshop, then I stuff it into my home game in the hopes that it works.
