As part of our ongoing efforts to improve forum performance, we will be migrating to new servers within the week (perhaps on the weekend). Once we finalize the actual date and time, a notice will be posted here at least 4 hours prior to "go time". We expect a fairly long maintenance period of approximately 1-2 hours during the move.
The move to new servers is happening tonight at somewhere around
1am MIDNIGHT EST. There will be a significant period of downtime (30 minutes to 2 hours). Wish us luck!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions
. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum
. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
browser based alternatives to maptools or openrpg?
I'm looking for a tool to use in running a live pen and paper rpg, and for ease of use, I want to use a browser-based tool (something that I can just link my players to) rather than a stand-alone program (like maptools or openrpg) that will be useful for keeping track of, primarily, a really rudimentary way to track character locations on a 2d space.
Toward that end, even something like a feature-barren online paint program that can be accessed and interacted with in real time by multiple people (at least 4) would be functional, but I haven't had any luck finding one that wasn't more work than it was worth.
If anyone has any suggestions, I'd appreciate it!
sometimes you just gotta do a thing
