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!
Our gaming group is considering experimenting with a virtual table due to the ever increasing difficulty of getting 4 or 5 family men together in the same place at the same time.
The DM has experience with Battlegrounds and a projector for games he runs in person so is thinking toward Fantasy Grounds. Obviously as he is the one putting in the work he gets preference but I was wondering if people had any other recommendations I should point him at?
I know quite a few people use Maptools but it does seem quite labour intensive from my brief experimentations a while ago. Seeing as Fantasy Grounds costs real monies I'm hoping that it streamlines things a bit.
Any other ideas? Is the official D&D virtual table in a useable state yet and does it actually offer any integrated rules things to make life easier?
