A good reminder that the rules were created to facilitate role-playing, just as much, if not more than combat!

Fully forward-compatible mass combat gaming system for D&D5e found! What a gem! Worth reading for its value as a free standing set of wargaming rules of its very own! A must have for every D&D gamer!

Would like to do something like this with our campaign map! Excellent find, Chris!

I loved Talisman! I had all but a couple of the 2nd edition expansions, and then I lost all the cards to it after several moves. I miss this game so much.

LibreOffice; yep. It's free, and useful for small projects. I'm using LO 3.0 or something in the 3's. It was never as functional as the original Open Office program it replaced in all Linux/Ubuntu OS set-ups. I love Linux & Ubuntu, but my computer expertise begins & ends right there, and I've been absolutely stonewalled in getting the original and IMO much more functional Open Office re-installed to my Ubuntu OS.

PDF creation is pretty basic and good for what I do (format a LibreOffice odt (analogous to Word.doc) document into a finished PDF for online release), so I haven't upgraded to anything higher than the 3.x/whatever, and on hearing your report, I am pretty sure I'm not missing anything. FWIW, my main problems with LibreOffice isn't with PDF creation, but with the functionality of a document with multiple columns, inserted pics and tables; after about 100 pages, the program freezes up and shuts down - all unsaved work is lost. :(

As for the floorplans, this isn't something I'd buy since I like to draw my own and color is never a consideration, even for extra flavor, 3D verisimilitude, etc, unless I'm doing an extra special piece that I want to see colored in, I'd do that myself. The floorplans you feature here are a bit too detailed for my taste these days, however, I have most of the battlemats from all the AD&D2e 3D building sets & "Castles" boxed set - I liked them at the time, and this set resembles the stone texture, but the wood and beds look too 'modern', but I'd be hard pressed to get any more of these. I suck at photoshop manipulation, don't have a color printer, nor do I have a tablet to put this up on for a digital map on the table, so the PDF would be useless for me.

Thanks for the review. :D

Great review; short & sweet. Everything you said makes me want to unbox my Dragon mag collection from storage! There are a million hidden treasures in "The Dragon" magazine! I continually have to remind myself to keep thumbing through them to keep up in my 0e/Holmes game. ;)
