Hello to all Epictable users and creator,
My online gaming group currently uses maptools, and we have for almost 5 years for the same campaign(we get together about once a month). We have gone thru our share of members, but myself and the DM have been at it since its inception.
Well we have burned out on maptools and that brought me here. My DM went straight to fantasy grounds, but I am not a huge fan. I changed his mind, it was really that you are on the verge of releasing fog of war. He loves fog of war, I like it as well, but the lay out and options of epictable far outweigh the lack of fog of war for me.
As soon as I seen the screenshots I got really excited about this program. When I noticed you were developing fog of war I got even more excited because it makes convincing my DM that much easier. I showed epictable off to one of the other long time players and he instantly fell in love with the dice cups(it won't change how long it takes him to complete a turn, but one can hope LOL).
So we have a few more sessions already prepped for maptools and by then I hope I can convince them to switch to epictable. I will be buying it anyway, maybe start a ravenloft campaign with some other guys.
So I downloaded the demo and have a few questions. I was looking for the themes in the program files and I was wondering can new themes be added? I would really like to make custom themes that reflect the layout of our obsidian portal page. While looking around I found objects like fireball and lightning bolt and wondered what those were for? Also light sources? After looking around on the forums a little bit I assume the last one is for the truevision stuff a place holder?
Also can one add other game pieces? I thought daggers that appeared to stick out of the tabletop would be cool place markers for fantasy style games instead of pins.
Also your tabletop is great. I messed around with it most of last night and didn't really have any issues. I was so inspired to try new things and kept thinking of clever ways to use the features to enhance our campaign. All tidbits I will use to help sell your tabletop to my gaming group.
And bravo to you for not charging on the player side. While I am a player in our current campaign I won't have any problems picking this program up and stashing it away to use in the future and help support what you are doing here. Thanks for taking a look at my questions.
