Hey guys! 

 

I've been listening to the RPGMP3 Podcast since I was in secondary school. I basically grew up on the antics of Faylin Hilltopple and Balazar the Great Dwarven Wizard! Since I moved to London to train as an actor, I discovered Roll20 through the Shattered Star sessions, and have been gaming regularly with various old friends, from home and from my undergraduate days, and as I basically owe that to Hal et al, I thought I'd come out of the shadows and introduce myself properly. At the moment, we're powering through Tomb of Haggemoth, as a matter of fact!

 

Looking forward to meeting you all! :D

 

Tulty.

Hi there, Tulty,

I also started listening back when I was in secondary school. I can certainly say that this old website is significantly responsible for getting me through some pretty hard times and landing me in University.

Funny how much a 'simple' selection of gaming recordings can do, no?

Hello there  :)

 

I'd like you to know that you're both making me feel particularly ancient right now.

 

Welcome aboard  :D

Thanks!

 

RPGMP3 was definitely responsible for making me realise how widespread tabletop gaming actually was. Strength to strength since then, onwards and upwards! 

 

I'm a postgraduate student, but very likely do still class as a whippersnapper!

Hello and Welcome to the website Tulty. May your time here be spent in fun and geekiness.

Glad to hear we have inspired another Roll20 group. I think it's quite the amazing app myself, though I've been having trouble convincing Yorktonites to use it so we can play more regularly. Some people are a-feared of technology.

Hello. I was past Uni when I discovered the site but I had just started playing some D&D 3rd Ed when the Worlds Largest Dungeon was being played through. This site really opened my eyes to the large numbers of RPGs that are out there whereas before I had played AD&D 2nd Ed, West End Star Wars and a smidge of cyberpunk 2020. There are loads of games that I have examined after hearing them on this site. I have a hankering for trying to run a supers game but I am not quite sure how I am going to approach it.

For me, Roll20 has been an absolute life-changer. Suddenly I'm in easy gaming reach of practically anybody. As I haven't been able to put out many RPG-feelers where I am at the moment, being able to continue gaming with tried and tested players is a godsend!

Me and the Pants Campers have always played using Skype. Might have to give this Roll20 a look.

We use Skype for audio, as we daren't trust the on-board chat feature of Roll20, but it's top-notch in most other aspects.

So its, for all intents and purposes, a virtual tabletop?

We used to use MapTools for that because a) it was free and b) it was readily customisable to any rules system. Im thinking we might need something similar for our OSR stuff that is coming up. Either that or an interactive white board.

Sounds doable. It's even got a built-in turn tracker, if you want to use it.



Oh, and welcome out of the lurkin' shadows, Tulty. :)

Yeah, we only use it as a virtual tabletop. But it also functions well with regard to handouts and visual aids, especially with all the updates. For example, I've been running Haunting of Harrowstone recently, and the handouts were great for keeping track of all the research the party was doing. :)
