Ah, these silly ideas. They do spread, don't they?
Hooray for the point crawl. A truly wonderful tool for DMs (fuck players). Where all the difficulties of actually mapping anything is replaced by - wait for it! The LINE!
Woot, lines! Lines that are so exciting and thrilling and full of dimension and possibility. Lines! 'Ray!
Yes, that's right, your whole gaming experience can be reduced to squares and lines on a map that are in no way a reduction of verisimilitude or suspension of disbelief. In this wonderful future DM-friendly (fuck players) concept, you'll have three, nay four, lines to choose from, immersing you in a world as miraculous as a tour at your local State Capital building.
That's right, now you can follow the yellow line to cardiac surg- er, um, the dragon's den or the red line to the orc village, neatly and clearly laid out as a strait railro- er, um, possibility-conductor to your soon-to-be-sensation next adventure! Truly excellent.
Yes, players will be less disoriented by blank map spaces! Less bothered by things that the DM has decided contain nothing of interest! Less inconvenient DM world presentation and aesthetic design!
DMs, change over today! Fast track your way to a world you can make in five minutes with a ruler!
