This morning, our rad developers pushed the new Fog & Function update live! This is a big one, with several exciting new features and improvements:

Advanced Fog of War

This brand new feature clears away fog dynamically as tokens move across the virtual tabletop. Each token’s path is individually recorded, so each Player’s view of the tabletop will vary from person to person, depending on which tokens they have control over. Similar to how a battle map is revealed in a real-time strategy computer game, the area that the token moves out of remains revealed to the players in desaturated colors until they return.

Watch this video to see this new feature in action, and learn how to use it.

Use the new wiki to begin learning more about Advanced Fog of War. If you experience any issues with this new feature, please let us know in the bug forum thread!
