Hi all,

With the increasing benefit of adding Mini's to my D&D games, I've been looking for a good system for printing grid paper (all hail the office colour printer!).

I came across the following site which is perfect for my needs;

http://www.incompetech.com/graphpaper/plain/

To get a nice 1-inch grid paper, perfect for use with D&D Mini's, I select the following;

1. Set Document Size to A3
2. Minimum Border = 0
3. Grid Line Weight left at default
4. Accent is left un-ticked
5. Grid Spacing = 1 line per inch (for player mapping use, setting this to three or four makes a nice tight graph for their dungeoneering pleasure...)
6. Grid Colour = Light Blue if you have colour printing, or light grey if not.

Then just click "Download" PDF and you'll get a PDf document you can print to your hearts content!

Enjoy.

So gone are the days of fiddling with a spreadsheet to create the grid?

I'm pretty sure the MS Excel hates me.

Anyway, didn't you know the the future is on the interwebs?

We aquired a most awesome battlemat in the form of half of one of those electronic whiteboard screens (where they print out what you have written). It handily comes printed with 1 inch grid, is whiteboard, and rolls up for easy transport and storage. Ours was obtained when a friend's workplace damaged the screen on theirs and needed it replaced. I understand its not cheap though, and is not an option we would have thought of otherwise.
