Skirmish on a switchback trail

Rough sketch of a switchback trail
The adventuring group encountered three Dire Wolves at the foot of this trail.

I needed an encounter map for the D&D 5E game that, due to COVID-19 and players’ locations, I’m running over the internet. I created this using the drawing options available on the Google jamboard app. Thought it turned out pretty good considering I was drawing it with a mouse. I mean … you can tell it’s a path and a mountain, right?

Using Google’s jamboard for a combat encounter. The background grid options was useful for establishing 5-foot spaces. The players were able to move their character initials around to indicate movement. I used different colored shapes to indicate the Dire Wolves.
