Im 38, living in Georgia, USA and have been playing d&d for years and years on and off again. I found the 2.5d method while bouncing around on youtube. TheDMG was actually my first brush with the system. I watched one video of his and I was instantly hooked. Never before had I considered creating a youtube account or a facebook or joining a forum but after seeing this new awesome toy, I couldn't help myself. While power watching all of his videos, and trying desperately to find DMG's Secret Passage video, I noticed he kept referring to this DM Scotty person so when I finished watching everything he had, I power watched everything DM Scotty made. 186 hours later, I thought I was ready to start crafting.
It just so happened that we had just bought a new trash can and it came in a double layered cardboard container. It was a sign from the gods! I dismantled the box and started cutting. A week later I had made over 100 pieces of 2.5 terrain. I would post pics but I'm still working out the whole interweb thingy. My brother, and only d&d buddy, had left town for that week so when he got back, absolutely freaked out on what I had made. We played for 6 straight hours on our new tiles. "MORE!", he shouted, "we need more terrain. What else do they have?" After I talked him down off the couch I told him that I needed more cardboard. My brother and I are remodelers by trade and we needed a new garden tub for a bathroom project we were working on so we went right out and bought it, 2 weeks early I might add. So now I'm trying to get some outdoor terrain put together.
I want to go gridless but my brother doesn't, so as a way to ease him into the system I told him that gridding two 2' by 4' sections of outdoor would be insane and take for ever so he's on board with that. What he doesn't know is that I'm currently making some houses/taverns that wont be gridded, still having some issues with the roof though. lol I'm hoping he just wont say anything.
You guys on the forum are great, as a community, as inspirational leaders, as teachers and more. As for The DMG and DM Scotty, you two are my GURU go to guys on all things terrain. I cant thank you enough for what you do and what you teach. I gotta get hurry up and get dinner ready because the GURUs will be having a live show tonight at 7pm eastern and I don't want to miss it. Take care and happy hot glue to all.
