Importing Dungeon Alchemist Maps to AboveVTT
This guide will explain how to import your Dungeon Alchemist map in AboveVTT.
AboveVTT is a Chrome extension VTT built on top of D&D Beyond. This guide assumes you are already familiar with AboveVTT and how to open it.
Please follow the instructions below carefully.
1. Export from Dungeon Alchemist
