Our long delayed game of Empire of the Petal Throne, postponed twice, was finally played out last weekend via Zoom. Apologies for the totally crap pictures, I was photographing a screen that didn't have a lot of light to being with. We had fun. Rules: Chainmail v. 3 Miniatures: Steve Braun.

I so miss playing EPT.

You can capture screenshots by pressing PRINT SCREEN, then pasting the result into a document.

I highly recommend Greenshot as a fast capture program, since it can automatically save the screen captures with names like "Battle of Thraya-01.jpg" (and count up).

Or, use the snipping tool.
Click the Windows button (far bottom left corner of the screen).
Type "snip".
Press ENTER to opening the Snipping Tool.
Select "Window" as the capture type.
Click anywhere on the screen.
Click the Save icon.

That seems cumbersome, but you can pin the Snipping Tool to your taskbar for quick access, you can use it to capture just a window or a rectangular area you draw. There are some other settings you can mess with.

That's a good tip, thanks. Though, looking back, the base image itself was grainy as it appeared on my screen. I wasn't presenting the images myself, I was receiving them. They were shot in somebody's basement with the lighting you see. I admit, though, taking a screen shot directly would at least take one iteration of screen out of it-- taking a digital picture of another digital image is problematic.

There are I think at least two EPT specific army rules sets. Off the top of my head I remember the name "Missum".
