DnD for Tabletop Simulator: part one

Dungeons and Dragons is one of my primary hobbies. I was mid-campaign DMing a Curse of Strahd campaign when the pandemic hit in March and had to move everything online. Luckily there are more ways than ever to play a game online. My favorite solution though is using Tabletop Simulator to recreate an in person board with physical figurines. I find Tabletop Simulator's janky chaos to fit will with the spirit of DnD's nerd improv sensibilities and though it was initially a bear to learn, I'm now able to set up a new session in under an hour. That's similar to the amount of physical prep I do for our in person sessions and while I still prefer playing around a table with some pizza and beer, this works well enough and has given my friends and I a way to hang out during these weird times.

I plan on making a series of videos under the same theme. This first one is more an introductory to what's possible and why I like the software.

Krell the cleric

Near the conclusion of a Pathfinder game we'd been running for 4 years I decided to take the figurine I'd used for Krell and blow him up into a full mini-statue. I'm not a great mini painter, but thought using twine for "rope" on his trident worked out.

Dellmoon Ranch

Didn't like the map they provided for Dellmoon Ranch in the Princes of the Apocolypse campaign so decided to make something up. Looks like a good place to hold out till the last man.

Rivergard Keep

This is a shameless copy from the Princes of the Apocalypse campaign book. I just thought enjoy redrawing them in my own style to feel more journaly for the campaign sessions.

Feathergate spire

Just a redrawn version of one of the maps from the Princes of the Apocalypse campaign.
