Platform for remote GMing of Renaissance etc.

Recommended Posts

As we are in lockdown does anyone out there have any recommendations, ideas, thoughts or rants on a suitable platform for remote gaming? Hopefully something that is bandwidth friendly as I am keen to keep my games going throughout the current emergency, no virus is going to stop my PCs from killing themselves in other interesting ways.

This was discuss (and is currently discussed) here :

As I said, I recommand Discord (for the vocal) and Roll20 (for the sheets and applications). See my post (and the others' of course) about it. Good luck !

I’ve been planning a Dark Streets game on Roll20 (we use zoom for voice/video). Been busy uploading stuff, it’s a lot of work. The BRP default character sheet On Roll20 is *just about*  usable. 
Any techies our there want to make a renaissance character sheet for Roll20???

ill chip in a bit towards crowdfunding someone’s time...

I'm currently running a slightly hacked version of Kingdom and Commonwealth using Roll20 and Hangouts and it seems to work out okay. Two Americans, a Brit and an Australian so a rather well spaced group. And look for the Renaissance character sheet by Michael S. Bagley on the character sheet drop down menu.

Further - I would love to run C&C in Roll20 but the number of variants in the rules (factions etc) make it a difficult game to set up online. 
 

 

oooohhhhh. Cool. But I have to start again now!!!😀👍🏼

20:30 UK time on a Sunday works for us so a late afternoon for the Americans and it's a super early start for the hero in Oz at around 05:30 I think.🥱 it works out pretty okay I think as we only play twice a month but the Ozzie has missed a couple of starts due to oversleeping (Is that even a thing at five thirty in the morning?)
