View Full Version : Fog of War

2013-10-27, 01:47 AM
I have a massive Hexographer map that I am using for players to explore and discover a world aroubd them, I have so far been saving chunks of map as PNG files and filling hexes in with Gray for things they dont have LOS for, but with 6 players scattered across the map, this is.. Dificult.

Is there a way to, preferably online, create the same Hex based map, and put a FoW layer on it?

Maptools (rptools.net) is a virtual tabletop that can operate in squares or hexes.

It has fog-of-war and line-of-sight options, including 'use individual views' and 'use individual FOW'. With both of those on, you will only see what your token/character sees and things that the GM has set for everyone to see.

Other than that, make the master image, cover-up what can't be seen and save a copy. Send that image to just the player who can see it and trust that they don't share it OOC.

you can upload your map image and dynamically change what the players can see.
