D&D: Better Infernal War Machine Tokens for Roll20

 I'm running the Descent into Avernus campaign for some of my friends right now, and tomorrow they're going to find out what infernal war machines are for the first time. The module on Roll20 comes with some default tokens for the war machines, but quite frankly, they're lazy trash. They just cut out the sketches from the book and put them on blank red backgrounds, and they just look bad.

I decided I don't want to go with these for the whole campaign, so I made my own versions of each vehicle using Dungeondraft. I even included identifiable station markers (the platform with the circle inside a square) so that the players can place their tokens there when manning them. These are PNG images that can easily be imported into Roll20 and fit perfectly to the grid, so feel free to download them and use them in your own campaign, Descent to Avernus or any other with a Mad Max: Fury Road chase in it!

Devil's Ride

Tormentor

Demon Grinder


Scavenger

I was an idiot and forgot to save the Dungeondraft files for the Tormentor, but once I get that settled I should be able to make it possible to switch out weapon stations with new ones when the players want to.

UPDATE: And here are some extra models for the other warlords! Consider it a free expansion.

Inktober 2020 Begins!

This year I'm going to participate in Inktober, the worldwide challenge to make a drawing for each day in October. Some people do color or digital drawings, but I'm going to stick with the traditional approach of inking, partially because I need practice with inking drawings, partially because I really need practice with sketching drawings before inking them. So I have a fine-tip marker, 07 and 05 G2 pens, a pencil, an eraser, and a new sketchpad ready to go.

For the past several... years, I guess, I've been putting off drawing, which has been taxing on my soul. I love doodling, but you have to be in a very specific environment to doodle without drawing garbage, and I haven't been in such an environment—sitting in a classroom during a lecture—for a long time. And I miss it. So this is a great chance to reignite my passion of drawing, maybe learn some new techniques, and possibly find new chances to draw in the future.

My siblings and even daughter are even joining me, so I'm excited to get into this mode.

Let Inktober begin!
