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?
