This is just gauging interest, but would anyone be interested in a weekly night for RPGs or similar online while we’re all going quietly insane at home?
My thought is I can do Monday from 5:00pm to 9:30 or so. That’s US Eastern Time. I think that would be around 9:00 PM to 1:30 AM GMT. You’ll have to do your own conversions the rest of the way.
My intent is to use Discord and Roll20 as the ‘tools’ as needed.
I’d probably run one of the following, picked to be easy. This is also meant to be a no-cost thing, as I know a lot of people are stressed right now.
Dungeon Crawl Classics is great as a ‘drop in’ game: It’s basically D&D-like and, importantly, it’s fine for the players to not have the rules. Big feature is ‘character creation’ is actually a special ‘funnel’ adventure where each player starts with a handful of totally random PCs and the survivors. The bonus is, as I said, it’s relatively friendly to players dropping in and such.
D&D is the ‘lingua franca’ of many role-players. The details are a bit less certain here: I’d be willing to run 5e or 2e if there’s interest. I’d like to keep it relatively ‘episodic’ if possible, again. I might pop for a D&D Beyond subscription to share content with everyone if we’re using 5e.
This is just gauging interest at this point: My schedule is a bit weird at times, but I feel this is a schedule I can keep. Maybe drop to every couple weeks once the current Crisis is over and people are leaving the house more. If someone else wants to run the game I’d be interested, too. I may have a couple other friends who might be interested.
As a general statement, I want this to be a relatively light and fun game for all. Probably not a ‘deep’ game, although I’d try to remain true to whatever setting we’re in. Relatively light on ‘adult’ content and not really trying to be deep or meaningful. Everyone’s welcome as long as they’re not hate-filled.
