How are you laying out those player panels? Are they floating objects with dice objects grouped with them?
Thank you so much, dunadin. At route, the game is an out of print RPG from the early 2000's called 7th Sea
, but it is so heavily modified and customized, and so much of the lore completely altered and evolved into my own ideas, that it's not like to please a 7th Sea purist, but it works for the dramatic story and gamescope I'm trying to engage my players in.
As to your question, I'm pretty much a BRPG noob, so all I do is import a jpeg or png (if my image has transparencies) as an object, move it to the side of the map, and then make it a tile. I then load dice deployments over it, but there's probably a better way of doing it.

I think more people should post their screenshots as inspiration for the rest of the community here.
I am working on a new Pathfinder campaign, when we start playing this fall. I will post some screenshots of my own.
Ohh and by the way, any chance you will post the PNGs for those wonderfull "photoframes" you have used?
Thank you very very much, Lordippon. I plan to continue posting screenshots here in any effort I can to promote BRPG and show people what can be done with this wonderful program. I know that if I was fully educated to all of this program's features, I would probably be doing much more amazing things, and the easy way instead of the hard way. XD
I'm not familiar with Pathfinder, but I look forward to checking out your screenshots.
As to the images I used, I simply did a Google Images search for 17th century portrait frames, since the world of ThÃ©ah in 7th Sea is very similar to 17th Century Europe. I saved some images I found and then used photoshop to create templates out of them.

I wish more people would post pics of their games.
Hint: If you use BRPG's "Screenshot" command, you won't see any interface buttons on the captured images.
Thank you very much for the hint, Heruca! Once again, thank you for the wonderful and very affordable program.
