  1. Hi John

    Loved your recent article in RPT #688 on Map building via a deck of cards;
    I have tried it out once, but then realised most overland / large scale mapping is done on a hex based grid.

    How would you convert the layout to a hex grid?

    1. Glad you enjoyed the article Malcolm, there will be more kingdom building articles coming out over the next few months 🙂

      To answer your question I would suggest assigning each card a number of hexes on your overland map (depending on how densely you wish to populate it) and then, once you’ve turned over your cards, you can choose a hex within that area to locate the settlement/adventure site.

We love hearing what you think, however any spam or abusive posts will be ruthlessly removed and deleted, as will those that ramble off topic.
