    So, Call of Cthulhu meets...Seinfeld? It's a show campaign about nothing! Player: So what does an episode adventure session look like in this? GM: Well what did your PC do this morning? Player: Got up, ate breakfast, and read the paper? GM: That's an episode a scenario!

    Who Shot Elminster? No, It's the DALLAS RPG!

    On Geek Gamers' solo RPG YouTube channel, she did a really great video where she pulls the social combat rules from Dallas and converts them for use with a D&D/OSR solo game:

    Thanks! I was just saying to someone the other day, "when did I become old man yells at cloud?" and now I see it goes back at least 15 years! :D

    Which Online Virtual Tabletop Do You Use?

    I'm really glad I backed Role too. A couple of days ago they announced they are going to be concentrating now on rolling out the Creator Suite that will allow users to build their own character sheets from drag and drop parts eliminating the need to understand complex macros, APIs etc. I can't...

    Which Online Virtual Tabletop Do You Use?

    Also, Owlbear Rodeo released v1.6.0 a couple of days ago and it adds some nice new features, notably the ability to group maps and tokens in groups (folders) as well as select multiple maps and tokens. Plus the maximum map zoom-in has been substantially increased. I was able to get one of my...

    Which Online Virtual Tabletop Do You Use?

    Yeah, I can see that. Most of the VTT maps in my collection are 12x12, 20x30, or 30x30, so it's not really an issue for me because I can usually tell. I also like to "optimize" the maps and add elements in GIMP so I'm trying to get into the habit of adding the dimensions to the file name so they...

    Which Online Virtual Tabletop Do You Use?

    @MNblockhead Finally started to play around with Role a bit. It's still Kickstarter backers only beta testing (although you as GM can invite in non-backer friends as players), so not a lot of the features I'm interested in are ready to go yet (custom character sheet creation in particular). So...

    Which Online Virtual Tabletop Do You Use?

    Owlbear Rodeo tokens are really cool. When you import any image as a token, it can be designated as one of three types: Character (eg PCs, NPCs, monsters), Prop (eg furniture, treasure chests, barrels), and Vehicle/Mounts (eg horses, carts, rowboats). Any type of token can be locked but this is...

    Which Online Virtual Tabletop Do You Use?

    In owlbear rodeo, you could add a hex map and turn off (square only) grid snapping. Another nice feature of the grid snap feature: it's sort of a hybrid where it will snap tokens to the grid but you can still place tokens a little off the snapping points.

    Which Online Virtual Tabletop Do You Use?

    I think I've fallen in love with It's a free but very barebones browser-based VTT. There is no audio or video component - you will need Google Meet, Zoom, or Discord for that. I recommend Discord because of all the dice and RPG bots available. There are also no tools for...

    Best Weird Fiction & Cosmic/Eldritch Horror (without H.P.) ?

    For fans of M.R. James, I highly recommend English Eerie if you want a different kind of roleplaying experience (solo and gm-less play with a journaling element). There is a new second edition just released but you can check it out with the first edition which is PWYW...
