Inspiration for Roll20 ASSH 2E

I was flicking through my Mewe Groups today and came across a quality Roll20 landing screen by J. K Hepler, it’s shows a wooden table top with some important tables, character tokens and a map on it. This great work inspired me to do something similar for my Zhanor upcoming Astonishing Swordsmen & Sorcerors of Hyperborea 2E game that I’m starting next weekend.

Whither Westhaven

The cards are portable, easy to write on, can serve as bookmarks if you need them to and are just all round handy.
