The holidays are generally good for me for getting gaming stuff done. This holiday season has not been an exception in the least.
First up, a redo of my terrain boards for caverns. The first one I did just wasn't "popping" as much as I wanted it to and I realized the reason why. I didn't leave any black space in between the "squares" on the board. I originally thought it would be better since I was trying to do a cavern floor rather than a dungeon room with floor tiles as spaces, but it was just too flat looking. So I did a hallway that was more consistent with the dungeon floor tiles I did, leaving black in between the cavern "squares." The new tile is on the right. I like it better.
To quote the bar keep at the Prancing Pony from the Lord of the Rings movie, "He's one of them rangers!"
