Stencils & Stamps
I like the idea of not just making stuff as gamers and DMs but making our own tools. I have a distant connection to someone who designs stamps for the scrapbooking market. And since I found that out last summer I've had the thought in the back of my mind of dungeon stamps.
It's just been in the back of my mind because it doesn't seem too useful. Maybe a more practical tool would be stencils. Stencils we could print on heavy paper and still share with each other without needing someone to manufacture them. (For a couple hundred bucks you can get a machine that makes stencils, but these are thin craft-style stencils meant for painting not tracing)
The last few days I've been experimenting with dungeon generation using stencils but it isn't working so far.
Anyway, I thought I'd put it to you. In making handrawn maps are there features you wish you could just trace or stamp?
