Thanks Owen for bumping this topic. As I noted recently, I think 5e (3 phase movement, and matchbox scale) is good transition game while we wait for 6e.

I tried 3:1 upscale once — but only that once. It was not to my tastes, but I do love all the photo’s that I have seen from other people’s games!

FWIW, I just took an inventory, and I think the old large maps will work fine pretty much as-is for 5e/6e. I will just treat Midville as an asymmetric area, ignoring the small scale debris and other details.

Also, I missed it earlier, but the 5e books are available on E23 as PDFs. So I don’t have to cut up my precious hard copy!
