If you are watching along at home, you’ll find this has been extremely dormant. A mortgage, Job and Children will soak up so much time you’d think its gold.
Anyway…… I have finished up GMing a Pathfinder game with old friends. I’d run the last 3 modules, the most I have run and the first time I’d ever actually finished a module with players. Sooo glad to have finished, it was a lot of fun and I did get to try out quite a few of the ideas I had rattling in my brain, however, I am glad to take a break and play for a bit.
Great news! I have started up GMing for a new group of adventurers! they are all new to pathfinder save for 2, my wife and another. I know I have just finished running games for another group, however I am more organised now and this group I can be a lot more casual with, so it isn’t such a burden. I think I really enjoy playing/running games for players that have no experience with Pathfinder/DnD. There isn’t any meta-gaming and their imagination is just so raw, I really like to run with their ideas and leave the rules to vague-ish guidelines to help amplify their experience.
I have been incorporating http://www.roll20.net into the sessions. Its a really versatile Virtual Table Top (VTT), once you are familiar with it. There is a bit of work in preparation, once going though its brilliant. As you can see by the image I am using a horizontal TV. I pocked it up on gumtree for free and replaced the power board to fix it. A bit of a learning exercise as I am learning electronics too.
So far its well recieved, though the tabletop can get cluttered in confined spaces and lota of minis. Next time I am going to trial no minis and just virtual tokens. A raspberry pi and communal bluetooth mouse will run the table so can take some of the navigation tasks off of me.
Till next time, roll well, roll with purpose.
