I need to set this up. I've run whole face to face campaigns with the NPCs being numbered counters of different colors. I have a little 3"x5" double sided tackle box that has these counters, some horse counters, and a few other bits from my old face to face gaming.I've got a set of number and letter tokens specifically for that kind of purpose when I can't be arsed to do anything else or when I have an unexpected encounter.
I didn't get serious again about miniatures or counters until I started running D20.
I did start with miniatures, and have used a mix of counters and miniatures. When I ran Champions, I gave players blank counters and they could decorate however they wanted. I think I still have them. Some were fancy, some were plain.
The nice thing about counters is you can stack them.
So managing tokens on VTT is actually a step up from counters for me because there is this cool artwork and I don't have to try and print it.
