April 23, 2009: 10'x10' Rooms For Fun And Profit
As we've mentioned (a few times), we're doing some renovation on the warehouse. Communication between what we want, and what the contractors assume we want, has occasionally been an issue . . . until we fell back on our old-school gamer habits.
Yes, the solution to our troubles was quarter-inch graph paper, and maps that look like they should be labeled with "orc guarding pie here." They're actually kinda fun to draw, in the "as much fun as directing construction work can be" sense. And there is no doubt that they're effective -- now everyone involved is on the same page, for every step of the process.
See, dungeon crawling can teach you a useful skill!
