Something I want to try out for wednesday game.

Mostly for G.

I was hunting around for some software to maybe make some basic maps so that I could possible show G...if I planned far enough in advance <.<



In the process I did find a useful software. That actually steps up a bit more, and manages to do something I wanted to do from the begining.

It is a Java based program so you do need to run a Java client. Which is quick and painless.

The actual program is fairly small little java program.

The major advantage to this is not only can I make maps if I plan far enough in advance. I can make a defualt 'field' and place tokens on it. That anyone who is logged into host (GM) game can instantely see as well as move a character token as you would a mini for a D&D combat scene.

It might take a little minor setting at my end to open the server port. Though it could make explaining and showing combat scenes to anyone on the internet :D
