You're more creative than default tokens let on.
Even if you're running a pre-written campaign, being a Dungeon Master requires creativity in addition to a number of other skills you need to employ to run a successful game. A game can fall off the rails quickly and your players are going places or talking to NPCs didn't expect. Be ready for where ever the game goes with hundreds of bordered tokens to represent the various NPCs and enemies your players will face.
We all know the default bandit token -- the stern looking, black-bearded dwarf. I cannot deny that it's a beautiful token. But seeing six of those on your virtual table top betrays how creative you are. Each of those bandits has characteristics to tell them apart. So why do you need to limit yourself to one picture for all of them? Simple. You don't need to! Add another 100 tokens to your library and inject your game with the visuals that show how creative you are.
Enlarge. Every token in this set is designed to fit into a 1x1 square when you drop it onto the VTT but the resolution of the image allows you to increase the size to 3x3 before you would see a quality drop off. So don't be afraid to cast that enlarge spell!
Powerful Roll20 Features. These bordered portrait tokens are best used in rollable tables to create Multi-Sided Tokens. Multi-Sided Tokens allow you to have multiple pictures represent a single character sheet. When you pull your NPC onto the VTT you can right click on them and randomly choose a portrait from the rollable table. One NPC, such as a bandit, can appear in groups with each one looking different but still retaining the statistics of the NPC.
Taking Advantage of Mods. If you are a Pro User then you can leverage the skill of Roll20's talented community of scripters to make your task as a Dungeon/Game Master easier:
• Mods like The Aaron's TokenMod allow you to quickly assign a character sheet and stats to a token on your table.
• Keith Curtis wrote the Faces script which has an intuitive user-interface that helps you build multi-sided tokens from uploaded art.
Using Mods like these unlocks the full potential of tokens like mine and other talented marketplace creators. Mix and match and take your game to the next level of immersion!
Note: When using Keith Curtis' Faces Mod you cannot use art assets dragged out from marketplace purchases. You must instead download the assets you want to use and upload them into the game.
