- A JPG, PNG or GIF of your campaign world.
- A MapLib account (they're free)
- Plenty of patience
Add your map to MapLib.netOnce you're logged in, go to the "My Pictures" section and upload an image. If you want a 4:3 ratio map use the settings below. Place a map pin to define a location and type in it's name in the pop-up box. You can add descriptions (see the example below) to the pins and include hyperlinks. If you have them upload your own custom icons (or use the ones that other users have uploaded) and attach them instead of the bog standard pin. If you've got lots of pins to manage you can create categories for Capitals, Cities, Towns or what ever takes your fancy. If you need to mark out an area or a line use the polygon or line tool.
