So, you’ve probably seen this simple flowchart that demonstrates how a Dungeons & Dragons game works, right? It made the rounds of popular blogs, such as Boing Boing months ago. Well, it’s been sitting on my hard drive every since, and the more I look at it, the more I’m convinced that this flowchart doesn’t even capture the tip of the iceberg. I mean, seriously, since when do roleplayers like anything to be simplified?
So, I decided to create my own version of the flowchart. It’s a bit large, but it makes a great desktop! Either that, or if you
have access to a t-shirt maker, it would make and awesome t-shirt for a Dungeon Master. Below, you can download it as a .pdf file or as a .jpg to use as a desktop with or without a nice fantasy map background. The .jpg files come are all 1280×1024, but four of them provide space for your taskbar, whether it’s one row high or two.
