    What software do you use? I designed a lot of maps on grid paper in the olden days
    GIMP.

    Well, there goes my entire day. I just spent five hours making a not-so-good looking campaign map in Photoshop from an old map I had on grid paper and I've now found Campaign Cartographer and realized I can make a better looking map in less than half the time with it. I'm going to be using that from now own. Feels bad, very bad.

    On that note, if anyone else is interested in sending me some maps to replenish my lost productivity that would be might swell of you. I'd really like to get our group's game going this Saturday and not have it be sucky.

    How would one play online d&d? I've always been interested in this game but I'd really prefer to play it online.

    You can use a virtual tabletop, like maptools, for maps, movement, and general visual aidery.

    You can use IRC, and do the whole thing via text.

    I prefer maptools, its simple yet functional.

    I just took a Dwarf Fortress world map in ASCII mode, cut all the black out and shrunk it down so each tile was 1 pixel, then recolored and stretched up 200% from the small size.
    Oh, and I used some lighter/darker brushes so the whole world didn't look so bland and flat.
    I thought it looked strangely like a map from Dwarf Fortress.

    You could also use something like Skype, Ventrillo and such, or use the ancient method of play-by-post and play it over a forum, and i have even heard of some people stuck in the dark ages playing it over steam-chat.
    The possibilities are endless!

    I guess I would probably be limited to online D&D. I should probably read the rules and such before even trying to find a Skype group.

    Edited:

    So... are miniatures and map grids absolutely necessary or what?

    Well, after a long day's work I was able to almost complete the base of my entire campaign's realm map. However, due to time constraint on the game being tomorrow, I resolved to completing a map for (to a sufficient level) approximately one-sixth of the playable realm which should suffice for at least a few hours and even more with a good imagination. The first link is the first image I made in Photoshop to base my full image off of and the completed portion in the second image is the top-right island which I remade in Campaign Cartographer 3 (an amazing program for making roleplaying maps).

    The first map really does look as bad as you think it does but at least the awesomeness of CC3 made up for it, I have a lot of work ahead of me.

    Played some pocket RPG with a few Steam friends. None of us have any experience in this type of stuff, so it was fun and insightful. It involved my friend's character getting a double dose of drugged booze because my other friend's character didn't want to drink the one he got for himself.

    Which is to say: "We only have 2 players right now and might be willing to take on another if you are interested."

    It's pocket edition so you can have a character made in about a minute.

    No dice needed for character creation, just two stats, body and mind. Body covers physical skills while mind covers mental ones. It's all very simple and best done in chat.

    Darth GW7: Morn, seeing the Destrachan vulnerable, seizes his chance. In the blink of an eye he's on top of its head. A slash of his rapier seems to cut through light itself, and leaves a large gash in the top of its neck. Suddenly, he disappears. Blood spills from the creature's mouth. The head tilts, then falls. Morn climbs out of the large hole where its throat used to be, barely a speck of blood on his clothing.

    I love being an assassin - Already I can almost inflict death by massive damage. Granted, it was a crit, but still.

    Also this session had a REALLY awkward ending.
