Time for another #introduction :
So hi everyone, I've been posting #rpg related stuff over on dice.camp and on reddit for quite a while now, decided to move here with a brandnew handle, yay.

When running B/X, OD&D or AD&D. How do you do non combat "skill rolls"
Interesting discussion of “ancient” role playing, Arneson style. http://darkwormcolt.blogspot.com/2020/03/ancient-school-roleplaying-exclusive.html
#playfromhome first experiences: two sessions of OD&D over roll20 so far ...
we used discord audio chat, as roll20 chat was unreliable (why? isn't both webrtc?)
I still prefer rolling real dice, just trust everyone!
Prepping seems to be more work - maps, char sheets, quite fiddly ...
drawing (hex)maps as you go is a pain ... I found it very disruptive, as it just takes too long
it's much harder to "read the table"
I find it more tiring. Don't plan sessions longer than 3 hours!
COVID-19, 3D printers needed +
"3D Printer Crowdsourcing Sheet for COVID-19:
If you have a 3D printer and can donate your time- please sign up. If a hospital asks- refer them there. If they need feasibility they can contact me"

there is a #quarantine channel on quakenet 😀
#quaranzinefest is April 4th and 5th
Just post your work with the hashtag on those days to the platform of your choice.
Someone was lamenting the loss of G+ again. They have a record we know:
It prompted me to reply the following though:
The blogosphere was around before G+ and it is still around after. There are plenty of decentralized options if you really look.
Time to bring the internet back from the big data centers, learn a bit along the way, and be independent of bottlenecks to connecting.
Kind of late to the party, but my copy of Yoon-Suin arrived today 😀 #osr
"In OSE and BX both Dwarves and Elves have infravision. This means that Dwarven allies or Elves themselves can cast a Darkness spell. This results in the Dwarf or Elf being able to attack normally if they are inside the darkness spells but everybody is attacking them as if they have been blinded. In DnD B/X blinded creatures can't attack."
It's been a while since I did a #FF post, but it's Friday, so why not.
