I find myself in a mood to run another game. The only problem is that as I've gotten older it has become harder and harder to arrange a night when myself and a group of people can all get together in one location to have game. It isn't the time or day but more the added hassle of travel and what that means. Now, time was - and I grew up as a gamer through this time - that if you couldn't get together in person there was no point in even trying to game. That seems to have changed now.
Aside from folks gaming together through Skype or over Team Speak there are programs like roll 20 that are specifically designed around online gaming. Even weirder for me is that I recently found out that the two players in my extended group with the least experience in roleplaying both have more experience with this kind of gaming than I do.
And so I find myself playing around with Roll20 and looking at it as a means to run a game. It can run through Google Hangouts and voice comm through a third party software doesn't seem hard - reports are the roll 20 native voice chat is a bit buggy. I suppose the only step left is to try it with something like a one shot.
My question to you all today is how many of you have played games through some online means? How did it go? What did you find it added to the experience? What did it take away?
