Map Making on Roll20 (Part 2)

Welcome back! In my last post about Roll20, I talked in-depth about how to get around on the site, but not really how to use its finer features. No worries, I’ll cover it all here!

Let’s get started.

Running a One-on-One Campaign

Hey again, everyone. In this installation I’ll be talking about how to run a campaign between just the DM and one other person, and a little bit about my experiences with it. I run quite a few of these every month, and each one always has a different outcome and feel than the last.

Navagating Roll20 (Part I)

Hey, I haven’t been on in a while, I hope everyone is well. I decided to make this post about a really helpful website I’ve spoken about in the past, called Roll20 which can help DMs host online games, create maps, as well as keep track of their party’s PCs! I highly recommend this resource to anyone who wants to try something new, and has a lot of time on their hands. Continue reading

These items are all available for cheap (and if you’re internet-savvy, you can find them for free online) and are easy to use for first time DMs; or those who just want to take a break from spending hours in seclusion drawing maps and writing encounters.

Pulling a Campaign Out of Thin Air

I thought this would be a very informative topic to blog about, since not every DM makes it their highest priority to preplan every little piece of information shoved into a campaign. This is especially important to read if you’re thinking about making your first campaign. I’ll be talking about Narrative Improvisation; which is a lot like taking an antique German cuckoo clock, and then asking someone to add a built-in toaster oven. Continue reading
