Using a digital projector to deliver the ultimate mapping solution for your game is something of an evergreen topic among GMs: There’s always interest in it, and once you’ve heard about it, chances are you wish you could do it yourself (I know I do!).
d20srd.org (an all-around fantastic site for D&D GMs) has a page dedicated to Jans Carton’s delicious, enviable digital projector setup. It’s not a step-by-step guide to creating your own projector mapping nirvana, but it’s chock full of useful tips and details — plus screenshots of the map creation process, as well as games in progress.
If you’ve been considering taking this plunge, this just might be the page that pushes you over the edge — I know my mental gears started turning when I read that Jans’s projector can be had on eBay for under $300, which is about $1,700 less than I expected. (Via The Island of Eime.)
