Tiny Dungeon allows players to map the dungeon while online. Handy tip, tell them there starting point! I had this happen once on paper in a IRL game, and the player asked me for a new sheet as he was out of room!
Basically creates a small room online where everyone can see dice rolls.
It seems there are a lot of theatre of the mind type games going on in Discord, and these 2 sites are defiantly helpful!
Obviously roll20 and fantasy grounds are super helpful when running games. I do have to admit having the roll20 interface that allows me to start adding maps and avatars, and all that jazz actually distracts me a little bit from just running a game. I'll likely use discord and rolldicewithfriends next time. And just have them create their characters in google drive or whatever. I always do that with my games when I play. Here's skord from Tims Game.
Speaking of Tim's game, Joe & Matt and Tim did a nice wrapup podcast from the year long campaign. You can listen to it here.

I'm trying to do more writing on Wednesday's. I'm almost done draft 2 of a Crimhuck adventure. Should hopefully get that out in the next little while.
I also started working on this map, which may end up being a campaign setting for my online games. Its kinda of a mashup of greyhawk, mystara, and allansia. I think I'll change the font as its not that readable.
As Eric Bloat says "Show your work".
So there yah go.
take it easy kids!
