A Mapping Question

Sorry for the lack of posts this week, been a bit ill.

Anyway, the campaign I am running for my kids is set in the Nentir Vale, of which I have a map.

In my never-ending attempt to old-schoolify 4E, I want to overlay a hex grid for exploration and travel in the Nentir Vale. Anybody out there know how this can be done easily? Or better yet, have it done already? Any help here would be greatly appreciated. I'm also working on random monster charts for exploring in the Nentir Vale, which of course I will be publishing here, and having a hexed map of it would really help a lot in that process.

Thanks in advance!

  2. 6 miles to a hex would most definitely work!

  4. Hey, here's how I add hexagon to a pre-existing map. I go to http://zho.berka.com/goodies/hex/, create hex piece of paper with a transparent background and then import the resulting gif into a new layer on top of the map I've made (or found) in my favorite graphics program (I usually use GIMP or Google docs).

    I've got more resources that I've found for creating maps at: http://nowherecollective.net/2011/07/29/resources-for-…ing-ddrpg-maps
