No, I'm not literally asking for the readers of this blog to make me a map. I'm directing this at publishers, big and small.
Many of us do our gaming online, either via a Virtual Table Top or an app such as Roll20 (all hail Roll20!)
This allows us to import maps from adventures and use features such as Fog of War to reveal what the PCs can see (and hide what they can't see).
What FOW can't do is hide room numbers, obscure traps and keep secret secret doors, all of which show up on the reveal.
Is it that difficult to give us the addition of a "play map" for use with the "new fangled" gaming tools we have access to these days?
I know Purple Duck has been adding such to it's DCC releases based on feedback, and it's an awesome feature of their products, especially for those of us that game online.
Oh, before you say it, using Paint or Photoshop or some such to remove the offending material leaves tell tale signs (alright MY SKILLS leave tell tale signs, as I literally have no such skills). Players ain't stupid ya know ;)
So, what say you? Who else wants some "Unkeyed Map Goodness" in their newt OSR adventure purchase?
