I pushed through all my doubts and cringy feelz and finished and sent it. Yay!

But it's also kind of cool. I get to write creatively (well, a bit) and share it with people!
Okay, wait a second, I didn't think this through... 😬

Yesterday, we had a limited time for our d&d session, and I wanted to wrap this arc up. It worked out in the end, but just barely, because we had connection problems at the worst time. So annoying!
Now I'll do the final wrap up in epologue style via email. Which is still an okay thing to do, and we can do smaller groups and sessions during the summer vacation time.

Man, you can clearly see that I almost exclusively played DSA for years...

Oh, if anyone is interested in these odd dice, let me know! Boosts okay! :d20: :d6:

(I didn't really use them at all. I don't know why I bought them years ago, they were never really my style. But maybe they are yours!)

Hello, is anyone interested in these 2 sets of dice by Chessex? They are the frosted 7-die-sets in smoke and red. Also, I have a set of 8 dice in frosted blue, with 3 4-sided dice, d8, d10 and d100 (10s), d12 and d20. DM please. :d20: Boost okay!

It was fun! Yay us!
No, seriously. They found a secret passage, solved a riddle, had a confrontation with suspicious characters! Yay!

It went really well, the group was focused (as was I!) and determined. They fought well, and it was a nice change of pace to out usual roleplay-heavy sessions. Voicechat and screen sharing were flawless, too!
My main takeaways are: A visible initiative tracker is super helpful, as is a well-accessible visual representation.

Today is D&D day! Really looking forward to it, we'll try @senfcall out this time (it has some significant advantages compared to Skype), and I'll use roll20.net should it come to physical conflict.
But most of all I'm simply happy to play again with my group that I love very much!

I would totally prefer owlbear.rodeo, it has a neat 3D dice tray integration that I adore. But as one of the players is a paladin and another is currently carrying the sole source of light, it's nice not having to take care of this manually.

Spent the last days testing and setting up VTTs for my requirements. I'll go with the free tier of Roll20.net, for two reasons only: The support of auras, and the support of my premade hex maps. The latter works fine with owlbear.rodeo, but that one does not have token auras.

Oh - and the player view window somehow doesn't render at all on the laptop I want to use, for some reason. Very weird.

I think I'd be up for some Fiasco sometime soon... Hmm!

Show thread

I've just stumbled upon Fate and am considering reading a bit more about it. I'm currently neck-deep into D&D and have my fair share of experience with Fiasco, DSA and CoC. Even a bit of Heroquest. I'm interested in hearing from other roleplayers: Is Fate in your experience an interesting addition? Why? What does it do well, what not so much?

Okay, I'm not sure yet if I'll use roll20.net or owlbear.rodeo for the next session. Both have their advantages, and as I'll be streaming the player's view of my screen, it doesn't make much of a difference for the players.

I'd like to add game-icons.net/ as a great resource for minimalistic tokens, it's really nice and useful!

The token stamp maker from rolladvantage.com/tokenstamp/ is nice, too. Especially for my minimalist needs.
