I have build a table for our RPG sessions (DSA/Deadlands/Paranoia) which incorporates a large 24" LCD Display for showing maps during the sessions.

What I'd love to have is a piece of software that allows me to show only parts of the map (fog of war), but show the whole map to the gamemaster on his laptop (and of course the areas tinted that are not yet uncovered).

I thought of creating this in electron using 2 windows (one for each display) and mirrored webviews in each of them to display pdfs/jpegs/etc.

Update: Current prototype can be found here: https://github.com/dragonchaser/mapinator
