Dark Sun Setting

This is a campaign set in the Dark Sun world. The game is run over the virtual gaming table, Maptool. The goal of the campaign is to simply have fun, tell stories, and, in traditional D&D fashion, smash things into tiny bits. I feel confident that all three of these can be accomplished.

The party lives to fight another encounter! Well played session, everyone. So, just to recap, we won’t be playing next Saturday, but I will go ahead and schedule the Saturday after that for our next game. I will be checking in with everyone next week and making sure that day and time will work with everyone. Good luck Josh and Dane with your travel plans!

Another mostly successful session. Despite the fact that the party had a “this sh** just got real!” moment, we were able to push on and win the day. There were no real problems with maptool or connections either, which is a big plus, although I will remember in the future to design my dungeons in a landscape rather than portrait view for my 16:9-ratio-viewing comrades. Thanks to everyone for being able to make time for playing on Wednesday. My next tentative date and time for the next game is Saturday, March 5th, at sometime between 11 and 2 o’clock eastern time. Have a good weekend!

We have completed our first successful session with all players in attendance!! It went remarkably well considering our past technical issues running a virtual tabletop game. We only had one bug crop up, which I think may have been a connectivity hang up, with facing constantly changing. We were able to fix that by refreshing the server, and I have made the MapTool developers aware. And the mac mini had a CTD, but it thankfully took an autosave before crashing. I very much enjoyed having Dane join our crew, and look forward to many more a virtual adventure with him.

Thanks to Josh for adding some wiki pages: Player Availability and Maptool Info. The former will be especially useful to me.

I have in the meantime subscribed to an ascendant Obsidian Portal account. The account allows for a 15 day free trial, so I thought I would give it a go. The biggest bonus (aside from using Google analytics), is the incorporation of a player forum into the mix. I have sent emails linking you all to the forum, and I have made some scheduling suggestions for next week. With that, I hope everyone has the MOST AMAZING Presidents day EVAR!!

I am terrible at basic graphic design. If anyone wants to one-up my hastily ’shopped banner, please do so. The artwork is from Gerald Brom, original artist from the ’90s Dark Sun setting. Enjoy.
