[D&D 4E] MapTools Introduction – Australian Timezone
This will be an introductory MapTools game using the D&D 4E rules.
If you have ever wondered how playing online would be – this is your chance to try.
What is MapTools?
MapTools is free software that effectively operates as an “online tabletop.”
I will soon be starting an online campaign proper using MapTools, in preparation for that I would like to run a small adventure using MapTools to learn the in’s and out’s of the program in a gaming environment, as well as to introduce other people to MapTools.
What will the game be?
The game will be a small dungeon adventure for PC’s of 1st level – it will primarily focus on hack and slash so that we all can familiarise ourselves with the software but there will be roleplaying opportunities – in terms of balance 80% combat and exploration 20% roleplaying is a reasonable indication.
If we end up getting a good group there is definitely scope to turn these “intro” sessions into a full fledged regular campaign.
What time will the game be?
The game will be played once a week for approximately 3-4 hours.
I live in South Australia, Australia (GMT +9.5) – depending on what times people can make I am available from 6:30PM on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday nights and from 10AM-6PM Saturdays and Sundays.
Preferably I would like to play during weekdays or weekend afternoons.
What do I need to play?
A working headset and mic
