I've been planning to run a game on second edition rules, but I'm having a bit of dilemma. I feel like getting a mat that has either hex or square grid, but I'm not sure how it would work in EP. I have played dnd, which actively supports grids and has defined how grids would work. In case of EP I'm not sure.
So what I would like to know is, how do you run your games? Do you use grid and if you do then which type? Or do you prefer a theater of the mind. Any tips for a starting GM would be greatly appreciated!
