Uh, this isn't bug report, but wasn't sure where to ask this: So uh, this module also has same map style as Mad Mage's Dungeon did? (aka just white boxes that look like old school D&D maps) Thats... Kind of bummer that Wizard of the Coast has decided to go for this style for foreseeable future. The other 5e adventure books had maps that look good in roll20
1568745061
Created a new game, however there is no banner image for the game as normal with other hardcovers.  Is this intentional or a bug?  
1568745268
Also JJL, some of the maps are in the Salt Marsh style (not fully colored/detailed maps like before), they are a bit nicer than the DMM maps, closer to the Salt Marsh style, although there are some fully illustrated maps, but are more "reference" pages, like city maps or areas, but for actual "dungeon" maps are the "hand drawn" style.  I share your disappointment in this change in direction :(

It's not very exciting for players to see when they enter Hell...and it's a B&W sketch I could have made on graph paper. Especially considering the $60 price tag. Did they even do any market research on this new direction? Anyways....just wanted to report the game banner in the game forum is a blank box.

No big deal as I'm still about 3 months of ToA before I start this but the maps don't seem to be scaled as it says they are... unless BG is MUCH smaller than I thought.
Can anyone find Diagram 1.1?   In Chapter 1 under "running this chapter" it says Diagram 1.1 is a flowchart that presents the key events of this chapter in sequence.

You have to assume WotC are well aware that the Dyson Logo's sketch maps are not as popular as the Blando/Schley colorful maps of the pre-Waterdeep modules for VTT use. I think they have actively chosen tabletop players (who are more inclined towards the hand-drawn style to marry up with their own sketches on graph paper) over those using VTT's. They have definitely had enough feedback by now to make a considered choice. The disappointing thing is that WotC either won't work with, or actively block, map makers like Heroic Maps, from offering up high-quality alternatives for these modules.

Nick S. - It's a town for ants! Thank you for the report, I'll put that on our list for patch 1.1. I hope you're enjoying ToA! Everett - Diagram 1.1 is represented in the text of "Running this Chapter" in the Introduction: A Tale of Two Cities handout. The same is true for every following diagram. Sorry for the confusion! I'll remove those references in patch 1.1.

So, just to check, we won't have access to the diagrams in the adventure?  I'm asking because I'm a pretty visual person and the diagrams help me understand the flow of potential deviating paths without me having to diagram it myself.

Everett - Great point! While most of these diagrams are linear I'll make sure they get added to the module with patch 1.1.

The disappointing thing is that WotC either won't work with, or actively block, map makers like Heroic Maps, from offering up high-quality alternatives for these modules. Oh, I don't blame Roll20. I just hate the direction WotC has chosen. A DM can just as easily make a outline sketch of the detailed/colored maps as they can the B&W maps. They have been doing it for 5 years. And having the details in the map help a lot with understanding the enviroment. There are times tools or devices I've never heard of are referenced and can look at the room and know what it is in the old maps. The new maps...are just big empty white spaces with nothing to reference. SPOILER ALERT BELOW FOR TOMB OF ANNIHILATION One of the most iconic moments in a campaign I've run is when the party opens the skeleton gate on the last floor of the Tomb of Annihilation and they see the Atropal for the first time. The simultaneous gasps of "OMG, what is that?" and hint of fear and curiosity is amazing. If ToA had been made this year...the Atropal would have been a circle with a star in it sitting in a blank room. That is such a sad thought. And it makes me wonder what kind of moments were robbed from the last three books. What cool hellish visual did we not experience....so that some DMs can trace with graph paper a little bit easier? :/ At the very least, I wish they would sell some deluxe digital and print maps for those who want the details.

I came to also ask about the flowcharts but I see they are already being added in the next patch, that's great thank you.
I can't believe these are the actual battlemaps.  They look like pregenerated 10 minute maps from davesmapper.  I feel embarrassed to show this to my players...

Hi everyone! We understand that the maps included in Descent may not fit into everyone's preferences. It is important in these cases to make sure you contact Wizards of the Coast directly with your feedback. You can find that feedback form here: Link That said, criticism of the maps is certainly allowed, but when it devolves into insulting towards the artists and creators we will have to remove such posts. Please keep our Code of Conduct in mind and lets keep the conversation civil. Thanks!

Should the commoner tokens be multi-sided like they were in Dragon Heist?

Hi there Trey, we didn't feel there was enough background art of unnamed humanoids to share amongst the NPCs in the game to include a rollable token. You can find all of the unnamed humanoid art in the Character Art Pack, however!
1569428946
Thanks for the reply.  This is only the 2nd campaign module I've purchased in Roll20 and my expectations were based on Dragon Heist.  It was just nice to be able to have a quick option to make a set of commoners not all look the same, and it jumped out at me when I was reviewing the "Elfsong Tavern" map.

I agree completely, Trey, and thank you for the feedback! I'll make sure the production team keeps this use in mind as we work on future projects.

Most notably was the token for Tarina.  While not a major NPC, the module describes her as a female human, using the bandit stats, and the token was just straight up the default one for bandit, with what appears to be a male dwarf.   Then again dwarven beards can be confusing... ;)
I'm having difficulties with the Baldur's Bones Macro. Works great for initial roll, but roll again seems to be broken. Worked for one roll, enter previous result and adds 1d6 for subsequent roll, but instead it just outputs the value you entered and says to see Baldur's bones for more info. For example mags rolls 10 on first roll. for roll again they enter 10 in the query box, output says mags rolled 10 see baldur's bones for more info. Though maybe the macro got changed somehow as it worked the first time, so i created a new game to copy and paste the original macro, but same problem occurred. Any help would be greatly appreciated 
A good few character sheets are still open for editing when opening for the first time. In addition, unlike previous modules, the sheets are not set to 'auto roll damage and crit' like they usually have been. In addition, some of the sheets do not have their innate spellcasting in roll20's modular spellcasting section. I am having trouble recalling the specific ones, but the most prominent is Bel, who has an entirely blank spellcasting area. Duke Thalamra Vanthampur's Hellish Rebuke is a reaction, but reactions are not rollable, meaning you have to type out her reaction every time as it isn't able to be automatically rolled.

Matthew - Hi there, we think we've figured out the cause of the error. Could you please copy+paste the relevant code from the Rollable Tables & Macros handout into a newly created macro, save, and attempt to roll again by clicking the die in the sidebar (rather than using the test roll)? This seems to be an issue with the text editor replacing HTML character tags, so once you have copy+pasted the macro try not to re-open and/or re-save it. Please let me know if this works for you, and I'll get a ticket in for a long-term fix! Innkeeper - I'll make a note to do a pass on NPCs for patch 1.2. You're correct in noting that reactions are not rollable in the Roll20 5e character sheet, so I will look into whether we can make a rollable workaround for Duke Thalamra. Thank you for the report!

Not sure if it's a bug... but it seems like the Baldur's Gate map is missing a lot of details. The Gazette says locations are marked on the map but only the main locations are labeled. None of the fluff locations are listed.

This is less of a bug and more of a notification for a patch. Some character sheets are incomplete and/or have hyperlinking issues. Krull, for example, is supposed to be a "Death-Domain Tortle Cleric" according to the creators, but the sheet lacks any spells. The Monument of Tiamat is also formatted as [Monument of Tiamat] in his bio. I'm sure he's not the only character who needs to be completed, but I don't have a physical copy to fill in the blanks myself, so hopefully my party won't be dealing with any incomplete characters before a patch : )

You're probably looking for a large version of the detailed map at the top of the Gazetteer "City Landmarks" section.  In the printed book, this is a two page spread.  Would be nice to have a larger version in Roll20.

Hi there Ragnar and Trey, I believe you're referring to the map labelled "Baldur's Gate". Please note that there is also a map called "Baldur's Gate Environs" that is an expanded version of that map with more location detail. Jake, thank you for the report! I will ask for a full NPC sweep for Patch 1.2.
Might be missing something, but is the NPC Thavius Kreeg ( Under the Villa , V36) meant to have a separate statblock from his Amnizu fiend form found in Chapter 3?  The handout doesn't state as such, but presumes that the players can kill him to send him to Avernus. Would he have a commoner statblock when alive in the Under the Villa battlemap?

Just checking, but are NPCs suppose to have their "Auto Damage Roll" set to "Don't Auto Roll Damage"?   And is there a way to globally toggle this to "Always Roll Damage & Crit" ? Changing it on the "Game Settings" page outside the game doesn't seem to apply it to the NPCs.

Changing it on the "Game Settings" page outside the game doesn't seem to apply it to the NPCs. You can apply changes to the Game Settings page to pre-existing NPCs/tokens in a campaign by changing it in the settings, then launching the game, navigating to My Settings, scrolling to Experimental Settings at the bottom, and selecting Apply Default Settings. You will be presented with a list of checkboxes for each Game Setting you have switched from the default (which means sometimes you have to change it then change it back to get it to show here, if the original setting is what you wanted applied to NPCs)
