Hey there Shield Wall, I posted this on a Roll20 group, but I thought I’d put it up here too since there are so many who use Roll20. Hope you dig it:
A few of my players have mentioned that they have a hard time keeping track of space in dungeons, so they get a little lost. I also have a couple of brand new players, so I made a simple dungeon to them to learn in and for me to try out a new method (for me) of talking about the spaces players are in.
I made a layout image of the dungeon and used Fog of War to reveal rooms as they entered. Then I made quick sketches of each of the rooms (all uniform in size) and made a rollable table for this section of the dungeon, then made a token out of that table. I would describe the room as they entered, giving as much detail as I could, then I toggled the rollable table to the room they were in for visual reference. Players really liked it, nobody got lost in the details, and I had a lot of fun trying something new. I learned a TON doing it this way, there’s a few things I’d do differently, but on the whole I’ll likely run dungeons this way in the future, haha.
Thanks for the read!
