My kids have begun to express an interest in Dungeons & Dragons, most recently from watching the first episode of Stranger Things. After all these many years, and collecting miniatures, I thought if I did decide to put some kind of game together for them, it would probably be the old Basic Set, and I would probably like to use mro tangible terrain with miniatures, rather than just graph paper.
There are MANY great 3d sets out there, and it is something I may collect some of.... however, I wanted a cheap and easy method to work up some terrain.
Enter The Dungeon Master G method of terrain building... I would link to him, but not sure if he would like that... but look him up. I like his method, I like the looks of it, was not sure how easy it would actually be... probably easy.
Then I found the Crooked Staff Blog (again, no link, but you can look him up) who created some free pdf dungeon tile terrain, with methods for using it with the Dungeon Master G method... only without painting.
It does demonstrate to me that this is a great method for creating dungeon terrain.... if I took a little more time, was a little more careful, this would look much better. Easily.
One advantage of the original method is that the exposed sides of the cardboard would be painted black... though, you could overlap the "rubble" wall tops to both sides if needed, and it would infact look much better. See here for the exposed sides...
I will try to find some time to make some terrain using the original DM G method and see if I like that better.
Thanks for reading, hope you find all the lightning traps before they find you!
