New DM - Map Makers? Just The DM Tips?
NotBettyWhite posted a topic in Nerd PokerHowdy - Like many of you, I am now inspired to get a campaign going with some buddies. This is the first time DMing, and am looking for some decent (free if possible) map makers that you use. There are many on the web, and wasn't sure if those out there in Nerd Poker-land had any preferences. Also, if you have any tips for a first time DM pass 'em on. My group and I are fairly new to playing (I played 3.5e back when it came out). We're playing 5e, and it definitely seems a lot more streamlined. I have the three core books, dice, an account on Roll20.net, etc... I have the materials, now need the skill. I'm anxious (and a little nervous) because I want it fun - and not awkward & boring. ... It's like wanting to kiss that girl who never really paid any attention to me... And then when we finally have that moment where we could suck face, I end up talking about the comforts of sweatpants and 8th Grade... She then walks away wondering what the hell just happened... I stand there pissing myself... ... I don't want that to happen DMing my campaign. Ya dig? Roll 'em if you got 'em... Thanks!! -NotBettyWhite (Edit: Also told my buddies to listen to this episode: https://soundcloud.com/nerd-poker/going-in-recons-blazing)
BlueBandit posted a topic in Nerd PokerSo, what are the collectors doing? Should I bother to have a theory about this? Probably not, but here we go. So, remember when the scavenger said that everything in the ocean seems to drift away from everything else? The only way that makes sense is if the planet is expanding. (It's like blowing up a balloon with dots drawn on it. All the dots get farther away from each other.) Put this together with the map with the slowly growing sphere, the break symbol, and the symbol for the elemental water plane, and bingo bango, whisky tango -- the collectors are flooding these planets with water from the elemental plane through the break, which is some kind of dimensional portal. Maybe they're going to drain the planets once they've drowned everybody, or maybe they're just huge fans of Waterworld, which would be worse. Any other theories?
