    Steve beat me to the punch

    I'll be working on this with Rite Publishing, doing the maps and putting together the campaign file. The other guys on this are great, including Devin on the tokens. If you're interested in seeing a professional maptool project being put together from the ground up, and having a say in how it's made and structured, then this is a great project to get involved in.

    Yep, I might bring a WIP over here, but the patrons on the product will get the majority of the WIPs - with the ability to suggest changes and improvements as they go along. It defeats the purpose a little if you sign up as patron and then other people get to see all the WIPs!

    I'm doing a Q&A about the project. The first part is up here:

    Q&A: The Breaking of Forstor Nagar

    Here's a teaser for the project - an in game shot using maptool:

    Second part of the Q&A is here.

    Now here's a larger (and slightly different) version of the screenshot in that Q&A:

    I think the players need a bigger boat...

    Ships, icebergs and (movable) ballistae by me, background is maptool default ocean and the tokens are by the ever talented Devin Night.

    That's pretty sweet, bro.
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.

    Thanks! We need to hit goal before it goes into production, but that's coming along nicely with patrons signing up to be involved.

    Another screenshot, this time showing what happens if a PC is blind:



    In this shot you can see that Valeros can only see himself. This is the GM view - so the GM can still see the enemies. However the white line designates the limit of what the player will see.

    States are easily tracked in maptool. You can see the clear label showing that Valeros is blind. There are equivalent images that cover all the other states.

    Now you'll also see that there's a rather nifty little portrait and stat sheet on the bottom left. This contains all the vital information about Valeros, as well as his portrait. This allows the players or the GM to quickly see important information about a PC, so no more asking the player what his perception skill is before checking if he sees a hidden creature. I'll be showing off a little more of what you can do with this later. The stats here are for Valeros, the iconic fighter from Pathfinder.

    Portrait art by Tyler Bartley - our interior artist for this project. Tokens by Devin Night. States by AidyBaby from the RPTools boards. Map and torch by me.

    As always, more information on the Rite Publishing web page: The Breaking of Forstor Nagar.
