Tonight we’re taking on alternatives to the table top in the digital age: Skype, G+, messageboards, and the like
Running G+ allows all players to see the maps, docs, char. sheets and you don’t have to praire dog to see stuff.
For those trying the virtual game, do you also face to face game? How much of your gaming is virtual through skype/g+
I’ve been running and playing via OpenRPG for several years and find it works well, for chat-based anyway
Always thought videochat gaming conflicted w/ my own pen&paper gaming preferences. Turns out I was wrong
In fact, the more “simply” pen&paperish the RPG, the easier it is to play over the net.
The full archive of the chat is in spreadsheet form, here.
