I have been looking for a vtt that I can use, and doesn't cost too much or is free. Several searches gave me broken links... anyway, I decided to stop by here.
The one thing I didn't realize at first is I would have to have a map for the players to see with no room numbers on it... probably obvious, but I do make mistakes. I am used to having my maps behind the DM screen, and telling the players what their characters see. I used a set of map tiles I made out of manila folders, ruler, and a pen.
I do have two web sites in my .sig that have mostly overland maps. The amount of detail varies. The Crestar site has the most detail and some dungeons. My maps are free for gaming, just let your players/DM know where you got them. And please don't sell them. You could use ad-blockers to not see the Google ads on my sites. I don't need the revenue.
The Crest of a Star, Crestar, site is being updated rather often. The Traveller one not very much.
No, I don't make maps to order.
I DMed from 1979-1985, AD&D 1E, with a bit of TOON tossed in from time to time. I may or may not have open games, if my previous players don't want to game using a VTT... one has told me no way already.
I like the one time fee along with no player licenses.
I tried ScreenMonkey... but it just didn't seem like I could do alot with it. Not going to use VTTs that rely on soemone else's servers either. One did look good, but I found out it was very difficult to get copies of my logs and game results/combat off their servers. I dislike that. It should be /createlog at the start of the game session and then /downloadlog when I am done.
Anyway, I've babbled enough. I am leaning towards a purchase of EpicTable.
