This Digital, Projected Dungeons and Dragons Map Is A Natural 20


Traditionally, DMs use a pre-made mat or a carefully drawn paper version to create dungeons for their players to investigate. Redditor Silverlight did one better by creating a digital map projected from his laptop right onto the table. He explains:

I recently ran a group of newbies through the new Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition Starter Set. I wanted to do something really fun to get them engaged in the game and capture their attention, so I decided to set up a “hybrid” tabletop. The battle mat (map, drawings, etc.) is digital via a projector that I already owned, and then players had physical minis to represent themselves and the monsters they encountered.

Silverlight happens to be a developer for the digital tabletop gaming platform Roll20, so blending technology and D&D is nothing new for him. In fact, Roll20 powered the map. The rest is just an Epson projector and an Apple TV.
