    I use Maptool in my PBEM and its great for setting up screen shots and exporting them into the board. It works really well.

    Well it depends on how you want to create them. Obviously the easiest route is pen & paper but since you're here you probably want something a little more 'techie'.

    You need a graphics program like PhotoShop, Paint Shop Pro or GIMP. I would suggest GIMP if you do not have anything else; its free, and is under constant improvement and you will find many great tutorials, etc. here to help you.

    Another thing I would suggest is posting to the Introduction forum and telling us about yourself; what software do you use, what sorts of maps you want to make, etc.

    Then you can get a lot of pointers from that thread to others with relevant information.

    Once you grab a program to use, throw something together and post it and we'll give you all sorts of advice on it to get you pointed in the right direction.

    Yes! Welcome to the guild! I'm new myself (if you couldn't tell from my post number), but if you just look around, I'm sure you'll find what you need. Like today! I found these amazing tokens that Devin was kind enough to make available for free download on his site!

    These are going to be awesome. I think I'm going to print them out on some posterboard (or something similar) and use the tokens as I need them. So thanks a ton, Devin.

    Been adding a new feature to my app tonight because of Devins characters. Theres so many that I cant find anything in amongst them so I made it create contact sheets of the characters. I then put all the sheets on one big sheet so this is all the high res chars. I am planning to create a set of icons for Devins images which will allow people to use Devins chars so that they are all properly scaled etc. Anyway, all the characters on on page is the worst case scenario for my app and its slowing it down ! Just thought you would like to see them all and for those who havent got them yet then this is what your missing !

    Thanks RR,
    Even zoomed in you can hardly make them out.
    I will have some pages of the tokens on my token site soon..

    Also I would like to get more in-game screens using my characters to put on the site as well.
