Thread: Umm, hi.

    Post Umm, hi.

    When in Rome, they say... so here's my thread.

    Stumbled across this site while looking for a way to create better battle maps for my D&D campaigns. I had just been drawing them on acetate sheets with water soluble markers, but that got to be a pain in the butt. When I got my colour laser printer, I figured there must be a better way.

    After poking around here a while, I discovered Dundjinni, which is pretty much exactly what I've been looking for. Played around with it a bit tonight and am loving it. I'm giddy for my next session, with full colour awesome battle maps. And fun to make, rather than the tedium of washing acetate sheets and then re-drawing them.

    Never done much in the way of original creations. Right now I'm just transferring maps from published material into Dundjinni. Maybe some day I'll branch out. Never been very artistic, though.

    And for the record, yes, I paid for the software.

    So, hi.

    PS I thought it was cool that the site sent me a message on my birthday before I'd ever even contributed to the site.

    If you haven't already, be sure to check out the Dundjinni user forums as well. Lots of great stuff there.

    The new smoo...

    Welcome, good to have a Dundjinni mapper here because for some reason we dont seem to pick up too many. I guess they're all on their own forums.

    Anyway, show us any new creations.

    There are some real masters using/creating the DJ stuff and I love what they do. If I ever had more than a few nickels then I'd buy it. Welcome aboard and be sure to show us what ya got...even the drawn stuff.

    As a DM used to working with large mobs... your best three friends should always be:
    • a good printer
    • a sheet of clear perspex
    • a set of whiteboard markers


    Welcome aboard and I'm sure you'll find a cabal of D&D gamers hiding just below the surface of the Map Nerds around the place.
