    Yay!!! Let the Chace begin, thought, can it be a chase where miniatures have to advance on a grid or is it a general map that marks a chase route. Because im looking forward to the first one.

    Huh.

    A universal challenge that possibly involves tiles?

    I might try. I have tons of chase rules in mind.

    I'm thinking of doing a simple map with lots of removable/placeable objects. How does one make a "tile" for a VTT? Just a separate square file?

    Also, is there a specific filetype we should be using (i.e., bmp, jpg, gif, tif)? Thanks

    Doesn't have to be square, some kind of rectangle anyway. Check out the VT forums on these boards, or look earlier in this thread, lots of questions were answered here.

    JPG or PNG are the preferred formats for VT apps. Resolution here is 50 - 100 ppi and consider all maps will be viewed on PC moniters not printed maps.

    The tiles in my entry are huge, 24" x 36" but that's just the way I chose. Many prefer tiles no larger than 2000 x 2000 pixels. Also tiles shouldn't exceed 1 MB in file size - at least those are the needs for the sponsors VT app, RPGTonight.

    I'm sure a better expert may come along and help explain all this to you.

    Thanks! That answered everything I needed to get started. I had read this whole thread, but hadn't thought of the VTT forum section. Heading there now

    Post Agree with Ascension!

    I agree with Ascension, this challenge should start its voting and next month's challenge should begin.
