In this upcoming episode, we discuss Theater of the Mind vs. Battlemaps for D&D and TTRPGs and what the Advantages and Disadvantages of both are.

We have a lot of thoughts on the advantages and disadvantages of both and especially how both can be used together. Maps provide a certain Consistency and Accuracy for your games, while Theater of the Mind provides Freedom and Collaboration. Both however also have some Disadvantages that will influence which might be better for your situation.

As always remember that it's not about which of the two is actually better than the other and more about what fits the situation you have going on. so a lot of our talk is focused on identifying aspects of both that can help you understand which of the two you should go for
