One of my players accidentally rolled a d225 the other night. Didn’t count as a crit.

Roll20 can do a ton of stuff and there’s a learning curve for sure. I’ve managed to learn how to do various maps and handouts that I can switch to and reveal piecemeal, and that’s enough for me. The next step would be doing full on tactical movement and making the maps snap to a 5’x5’ grid, but I don’t think the juice is worth the squeeze on that.

Yeah, I bought a B2 map set on DTRPG that was supposed to snap to the grid but...it is just too much of a fuss. When we played, we just used the map to show relative distances and used a single token to move the party around. Switched to a little generic dungeon floor grid to do the more detailed combat. We also used the rulers to measure distances and that worked really well actually.

Lots of Roll20 here too. In addition to my normal 5e group that meets here normally (we switched to Roll20 for that) I also have started a group with my friends from TX. We played a 5e one-shot last week, but this week I ran a game of Old School Essentials with them using Dyson's Delve, which is a free compact mega-dungeon from Dyson's Maps, if you're familiar with that site. That group will continue every other week, switching off with a game of Monster of the Week.

I only want to roleplay right now, so this is a nice set-up.

That Discord group that I played with once a few weeks ago hasn't met since. First they canceled a session because two people had to go to a funeral. Then they canceled a session because the same two people came back sick. Hopefully not coronavirus, but they're in Florida.

We were playing a session of Savage Worlds on Roll20 last night when Matt got the message that one of his uncles has tested positive and is showing some symptoms.

DnD 2nd Edition with my three boys, my best bud and his daughter, and another friend, via Zoom in three locations. A quickie I threw together on short notice that worked very well over the live meeting interface. Just a shade of lag, we had everyone up on the big screen TV at our place.

The one oddity was that the camera on my laptop only showed black and white on Zoom. I think my laptop's camera has a wonked setting.

We'll do it again soon. They managed to take over control of the longboat from their viking captors when the kraken attacked, scared off the kraken by punching it square in the eye (natural 20!) and rowing it to a small island a distance off by picking out a lantern with infravision on the horizon. Next up -- the secret treasure lair of the vikings! Plenty or treasure, absolutely no danger. What could possibly go wrong?

Part 2 of Death in Luxor last night using CoC 7th, Roll20, and Google Hangouts for voice chat. My character, Barnabas Greenwald, failed his INT check when the lesser shoggoth showed up so I didn't faint or get amnesia like two of the other characters. We wouldn't have defeated it if one of the characters didn't burn out the lightning gun he had. As it was Barnabas nearly died when a tentacle hit him for all but 1 of his hit points! A quick trip to the hospital then on to the dig site. When we stopped the sesion we were getting sealed in the map room.
