Ok... so I'm "watching" a 4+ hour video on YouTube of an FG session.  (It's in their library for the tutorials... see below).  17 minutes into it and nothing really happened except a series of mic checks.  A lot of wasted time.

We should consider having a couple of "mock sessions", just to see how quickly we can get rolling (no pun intended) on a session.  Make sure everyone knows how to get into the game and has the proper equipment so we can hear each other.  Would hate to set aside a chunk of time and have everyone get pissed at each other because 1/3 of an hour gets wasted on nothing.   

 

So... a couple of dry runs perhaps?  I'll let GO take the lead because there is probably more for him to do.

I also figured we could use this thread for miscellaneous issues and thoughts?

Go asked if we can do a trial session this weekend for combat. We can try to check mic stuff then too.

Vissl is going to war.

 

I think the worst that will happen is a bunch of dudes breathing into their microphones.

Just two 20-sided dice rattling around in a lambskin pouch...

 <<furiously turns down the volume of PornHub>>

LOL!

Nah... last night as I was avoiding work and watching that video, I was thinking... "Gat damn... a 4 to 5 hour session?  I might have to order a pizza all for myself!"


My time this weekend is very limited.  My cousin and her family are staying with us this weekend.  But if it the timing works out, would like to be involved.

Time: I am east coast baby! So evenings work for me say 6:00 and there after.

 

Days: I am usually always free on the weekends. I will amend that as we go along.

 

 

We have discussed doing a few dry runs, one of which will happen this weekend. It will be a good opportunity for those of you who want to, to connect to the server and download anything I may have shared like rule books, icons, etc. It will also give you a good opportunity to check out the interface while it is connected to the server. 

 

Music: Oddly enough I have been working on a bot that will deliver custom "themed" music while we play, or any other tunage or you can play your own playlist individually. Just thought it would be neat to have themed music while we kill some goblins.

Can't wait to see what kind of background music you curate for this.

Reddit had a spotify playlist for spooky sounds for dungeon crawling, town sounds for towning etc.

 

There's a company called Syrenscape that does this just for D&D.

I feel like maybe I should move the computer to the basement where it is dark and cold for this... rather than on the 2nd floor in a room full of sunlight.

Mine is oddly supportive. Probably because it's one of the few things I'm into that doesn't cost money. I'll find a way though.

I'll wonder if she'll react to it like you're actually worshiping satan. Back in the 70's that's what people thought this was.

True.  Syrinscape does provide a service like this. I was going for a more "free" option first. This is a side quest for me and not something that's on the front burner. But when you are in the Discord chan you will see a bot...when I have him set up he will deliver tunage...I just thought it would be something kind of neat to have theme music in with our dungeon adventures.
