#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!

@wandererbill A player in my group told me that Roll20 uses p2p always, so for n players you need to send and receive n-1 streams, whereas Jitsi and others use a server so you only send and receive your own stream and the server handles n incoming and outcoming streams. Or something along these lines.
