About this game

The Calamus is a companion for tabletop roleplaying games, such as Dungeons & Dragons or Pathfinder, that allows you to create huge battlemaps utilizing dozens of hand-drawn tiles, create custom PC, NPC, and FOE tokens, and host games in which players can add and move their own characters in real-time.

The Calamus also features a robust chat, in which you can send messages as yourself or any token you have in play, publicly or privately.

Fog of War and 2x2 Characters have recently been added.

This is what I need for work/travel! The only downside currently is the lack of tiles, ground tiles such as snow, pine trees, shaded ground tiles etc for all seasons or time of day. You can use different colored maps to simulate different ground tiles but more seasonal and time of day tiles among others would help with the cost of the app. Otherwise, an ok addition to optionally have in a DMs tool box

Thank you so much for the awesome feedback! We'll be publishing new tiles soon, so be on the lookout for those content releases.

The log-in experience is a nightmare. The stupid symbol thing isnt cute or stylish, its just standing between me and my account that I've paid a subscription fee for. Just use a password and link to a Google account like every other app, dont try and get creative when it comes to user security. Update: The account process is far too buggy and complicated. I cancelled my subscription and requested a refund through Google Play.

Apologies for the issue! When setting up an account for the first time, you should never have to enter your passcode on the same device unless you log out. We recently went through a big update, and I think you stumbled on a bug. We'll put out an update soon. I hope that you'll give us another chance, but we totally understand if you don't.

Hey this is really good! Easy to use on a phone, and I imagine it would be amazing in a tablet! Randomly decorating the rooms I places with appropriate features was an unexpected surprise, and being able to cycle through/manually place them was over the top. My subscription budget is spoken for, alas! But keep it up! It's awesome!
