Welcome, and thank you for checking out what Walking Papercut has to offer. I create paper models to help you have more fun at the gaming table, from more complex models like the Treacherous Trees to simple helpers like the Paper Brains, and a lot in between.

This is about turning parts of a video game into adventure material. In case you were wondering, a spitting frog inspired our journey to the Tikoids (or Tikis for short). If you follow me on Instagram, you probably know that I like to make things, sometimes for the sake of making. I get inspired by something I see in a game or a movie, and I want to make it. But this one time, I decided to base an adventure in our D&D campaign on what I made. Read on for more about the builds, but more importantly the adventures they inspired.
Isometric views are a good way to represent something in a 3D fashion, especially if the object in question is actually flat or 2D. Creating a top-down or side view using vector graphics is not that hard. Creating isometric views, i.e. pretend you are looking at the scene from above at an angle, is much harder if you try doing it from scratch. But going from a flat image to an isometric view only requires a few operations. Read on and get the handy cheat-sheet as well as an example of how to use it step by step.
So you want to build paper models. Good choice. In this article, I will go through all the tools you need (there are not many) and the basic techniques used for building paper models, at least in the roleplaying realm.
If you do not want to build paper models, check out why you should be using visual aids in your roleplaying games. Then come back and find out how to make them from paper! Not only are paper models and minis a good way to save money and space, but they are also a handy tool to have in your “utility belt” and give you a wide array of options to choose from.
There is a lot going on in your game, and while their characters shape the world around them, players sometimes find it hard to keep track of things they need to remember. Enter the paper brain, a handy and good looking gaming aid that allows you to take notes and keep an inventory of things that need remembering. Need an example? Check out the Story behind the Paper Brain below! Read more…
Who says that monsters need to have square bases? Yes, most roleplaying rule sets. But would you fit something as flexible and arguably elongated as snakes onto square bases? I did not think so. Enter Snakes and Lizards, your source for nigh infinite complexity when it comes to slithering monstrosities.
It’s a sign! – Walking Papercut presents: Zone Markers
