As Wyloch points out in the intro to this video, there really are two camps of D&D/TTRPG players: those who are content with playing “theater of the mind” and those who want to see and play with miniatures and various props.
I have always been of the latter camp — to a fault. When I would DM decades ago, I would spend countless hours creating maps and cards depicting places, non-playing characters, and treasure items. I would even build Dover Books paper models of Medieval towns and villages to show my players where they were. It was often over the top (in terms of prep time), but I had an absolute ball.
For those in this “dungeon crafting” camp, this Wyloch’s Armory video is just what you need. He shows how easy it is to create very realistic treasure, piles o’ loot, and weapons racks from very simple and cheap materials.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
