And so, our story begins.
I’ve wanted to get into crafting terrain for my tabletop DnD games for a while, but I’ve never had the confidence. I’d argue I didn’t have time, or adequate space, or so many other things. But I was just scared of messing up. I still am, but I’m tired of letting that prevent me from doing the things I actually really want to do.
Updates will be slow, as I’ve started a new job, but I’m planning on having a project to complete each month. This month, the project is basics and scatter terrain.
In general, I want to make basic items that I can use on the table as much as possible. That means dungeon tiles, walls, stairs, pillars, and possibly stackable blocks. Most of my ideas are not mine. They are from an array of awesome youtubers, with the occasional tip from my incredibly talented friends.
The main inspiration for finally getting off my arse has been Black Magic Craft on YouTube. He makes things as accessible as possible for any level crafter, and I’d highly recommend checking out his videos on YouTube if you’re interested in getting into making your own terrain.
I will try to write when I can, but there will periodically be crafting posts scattered through the mess that is my blog. I hope my bumbling attempts can inspire some of you to try something new. I make the mistakes so you don’t have to?
If you want to use these as How To guides…I mean, you can? But I should warn you now that I have no experience at all in this kind of thing. That will be pretty obvious in the rough quality of my work. I have no head for this stuff, I’m not endowed with practical skills, and I have no idea what I’m doing. But, hey, if things turn out OK and you want to try it out, please tell me how it goes and send photos. I’d honestly love to see anything you guys come up with.
In all honestly, if I can do it, anyone can.
If, like me, you have watched crafting videos with awe and appreciation, but been too intimidated to try it yourself…what are you waiting for?
