roll20 for Harn, anyone interested

#1 Post by MThurston » Sat Jun 17, 2017 11:45 pm

I'm thinking of doing a campaign in Orbaal using roll20 with voice. Has anyone played it or is there any interest in playing? Thanks.

I have tried Roll20 three times, none succeeded in getting to the first game.

In my experience the player pools are smaller, but more difficult to schedule due to time differences; I see no reason this should necessarily be the case, so if your players are motivated and you have some sort of scheduling app (like google calendar) this can be but a minor obstacle.

However, I personally find presenting a game on Roll20 to be more work upfront-chief among them, map making. I'm tactile and like to build my presentations, and manipulating map tiles or images quickly is not my strength or interest. If you are the type of person who enjoys that, you should have a positive experience.

Finally, I find the lack of non-verbal constricting. I have, over the years, become more accustomed to voice presentation, but find it more fatiguing than face-to-face or text only (I was a big proponent of irc gaming back in the day; Roll20 is does not support text gaming well). It should be noted that I fell this way being a player character.

YMMV of course. Hope this helps.
Cheers, Konnel.

This of course would require the use of a Mic.

I came here first to see interest. It really isn't going to be much more work. I'm making stuff now for D&D 5th and can convert it over to Harn.

the game would be two times a month.

Apologies, I misread part of your post and thought you were asking for others' experiences. :oops:

I'm interested. Not sure if my schedule (including other games on Roll20) allows it, but bi-monthly sounds reasonable.
I'll pm you my Roll20 profile link.

Very cool. I'm still new to it. 4 maps in though with lighting. How do you add friends in roll20?

Gary this is Marcus from Gencon. It's just a tool to rollplay online. The GM provides the story and map. The players just have to be online and have a mic to talk to each other.

I'm guessing you run into the same kinds of obstacles using Roll20 as their is using Fantasy Grounds, like getting everyone online at the same time.

If you only run twice a month, you should be ok with getting the majority there.

I may be interested in this. It would be nice to change it up and actually be a player for once haha. What rule system are you playing?

My hang up is a character sheet. They one they have sucks and I have to figure out how to manually put one in.

I'll keep you informed.

On a good note I have 1 campaign done and I'm working on another.

Yeah agreed on the sucky character sheet.
If you can get a better one successfully then it is so worth the wait. Keep us updated man. I'm all in for this game.

A lot of people are hoping you get a decent character sheet sorted.

Well it doesn't automatically update skills. It also should have a selectable occupation and that should auto fill your numbers.

Automatic skills should be calculated also and there should be 5 boxes for picking skill options at character generation.

You could also add random rollers for birthday, medical and mental conditions.

There is a huge amount of macro use so i have no eta. Its not going to be hours or days.


I found a different way to look at the character sheet. It's looking good so far.

Just a reminder. This is for the roll20 website.

Roll 20 is a lot of fun. I've played quite a bit on there. I'd love to play.

Ok, here will be the Harn campaign I will run.

The group will be Barbarian or someone that has come to live and be part of them. The Kindom of Kaldor and using the Kath as the Barbarians.

So start telling me who is in and attach your email to it so I can invite you to the game.

You must have a roll20 account for me to invite you, you don't have to pay for anything.
