Was talking to my only co-worker who ever played D&D today about how we played. I am still amazed at how common mini's were in the "olden days" before I started playing. I've always heard of the world and the charactes and the like existing completely in the players' imagination and then I hear about battlemaps, dwarvenforge, mini's and so on.
So, how do all of you out there play?
for me it was all about the imagination, mini's were never used until I started with D&D Encounters. No mapping, no pawns, or symbols or anything like that. Now my player's did have a guy who would attempt to map out what I was telling them ... it was always fun to compare maps at the end of the adventure ... but nothing for minis are to see how far the creatures where and the like.
Maybe I just played weird.
