Re: Shared OOC 1
It's pretty easy yeah.  Character creation takes maybe five minutes.

Re: Shared OOC 1
I am planning on running it in person.... but if people from here want to join via webcam.... I wouldn't say no.. you are all the originals anyhow.
I have about 4-5 people in my little group here that are going to participate.

Re: Shared OOC 1
My availability would be dependent on time and days the game would be run. In addition to my classes

Re: Shared OOC 1
Well, before it happens I will post in here and let you know. We will likely be meeting up on a weekend. It looks like it will be fast to get up and running though, quick character creation and then off to the races... should be able to accomplish as much in a sitting as we did in weeks on here.

Re: Shared OOC 1
I'm not in any active games. I pop in every once in a while and see if any games grab my fancy. Haven't seen one that did in a while though.

Also, I feel like I'm late to the reunion party >.>

Re: Shared OOC 1
Have any of you been part of a game on here that used a chatroom/video/audio for gaming sessions? I have watched a few youtube channels where people used skype to meet up and bang out campaigns. it looks interesting.

Re: Shared OOC 1
I've experimented with rolld20.net it's pretty robust and has built in dice rollers as well a lot of other features

Re: Shared OOC 1
     Well... I am thinking about getting something started... My local group has been failing at getting together lately and the itch has returned. I am not sure if RPOL is even the proper venue for a game with live sessions... but I might use it as a repository of information and then just have the group meet via one of the many options for audio or video chatting. I wouldn't go beyond 4 or 5 people; since there would be a requirement for, at a minimum, a microphone... I am sure that will cut down massively on people's interest.

     Regardless, I will use the Fate Core system and stick mostly to the rules... I have a number of settings in mind but nothing set in stone. If any of you are interested, I wanted to extend the invitation to you all before the general public.
I chose Fate Core because it is very story centric and doesn't rely as heavily on dice rolling. A work buddy and I even made an application which handles generating things like Equipment shops with inventories relative to a users roll and includes appropriate aspects and such for the Fate system.

     As this little response turns into a book... I will wrap it up by saying... this is a work in progress and like most things on RPOL... it will take time. The fate system uses the players to help build the game world... so only certain generic details will be made by me... and then the rest will be determined by the group in conjunction with myself. I figure the biggest challenge will be managing to get everyone in a chatroom at the same time... if it is possible though.. it would be a blast.. and we could move through 100x the content in fraction of the time.

     I will put out some of my ideas in this forum if there is any interest... otherwise I will be starting a new game. Either way, there is only a small chance that the game world will in any way be related to Acolytes of Light.... it is possible but not probable... unless there is overwhelming support for such a thing. Well.... I am done blabbing for now. Happy Friday everybody! Also, don't feel bad if none of you want anything to do with this... I won't judge.

Re: Shared OOC 1
so lets say... 5 people is the goal. I have 1 spot filled already for sure.
I think game sessions of 1-2 hours is a safe bet, if you have a mic and or webcam (cam preferred) and you are interested... send me a message. I want to know everyone's tentative availability... nothing set in stone. We may have to select people based on the rough window of time in which they can sit down and have a spare hour. I will say right now, my availability is Monday-Sunday between 4PM-9PM PST. Soooooo ya, whatever happens it will happen within that window of time.. or not at all... with the slight possibility of later on a weekend.

Re: Shared OOC 1
I say that I would be interested in such a game. Never done anything with live sessions before, but I wouldn't be uncomfortable with it. What system would we be using to run the session? Skype? Google Hangouts? Something else?

Re: Shared OOC 1
I figure we would use Skype or TinyChat or some other option... either way it will be a simple free option where people can be either full video and audio or just audio.

Re: Shared OOC 1
Heh, I'd probably do audio myself. You guys wouldn't want to see my ugly mug.
