Roger's Additional Metric Ruler Labels

For everyone that uses the metric system in the real world and wants to know the metric distances without changing the underlying game system.

GM:

A 20 feet wide gorge lies ahead of your party. What do you do?

You are asking yourself:

20 feet ... is this wide? Should i try jumping across it?


This module will help you to better understand distances.
It adds additional labels for the metric measurements to your ruler. It is not changing any systems etc. It only applies an additional label to the UI.
