Hello I bought Fantasy Grounds Ultimate License and am looking forward to trying it out hopefully in the next couple of days with some friends of mine. My 1st question is what do you guys use for maps? I have found and made a few. I have a blank Dungeon map that i want to populate with items and such but cant find any that i can turn into tokens or anything so what do you use for this? I can always just tell them what is in the room but I like to add detail when i can. Thanks in advance.

Most of mine come from the .pdf modules I purchase however, I have scavenged quite a few off of the internet. I've also scanned a few of my old hand drawn maps and used them. At some point I plan to get Campaign Cartographer but thats probably not going to happen for a while.

Which modules have the items and such that you purchased? I am looking for things such as beds, library stuff, tables, chairs, etc. I have been looking online and have copied a few things in and i have campaign cartographer but i am learning that program as well.

I tend to grab maps from other places and then use that map as the basis to rewrite them into my own modules. That way if a player has the original module or has played it before he can't go off of his memory about what might be around the next corner. ;)

Thinking about rewriting this one next: Tomb Of Horrors (http://www.wizards.com/dnd/images/mapofweek/ToH_Maps/M03_TombOfHorrors_150.jpg)

There is a thread on the forums which discusses this very handy tool. It doesn't get much easier.
