    • I’ll be running it at conventions this year: see the lower right sidebar at http://www.LesterSmith.com for a list. And I’m hoping to do some online sessions via Google+ or something. Haven’t done the research for that yet, though, and still have some rules to flesh out. Oh, for more hours in a day.

        • Thanks, John. I’ve experimented a bit with Roll20.net. It’s great for pre-prepared maps and encounters; but for more free-form role-play it’s more feature-rich than I tend to need.

          I’ve run several online sessions now using Google Hangouts with the DiceStream app for onscreen rolling; Lower Third for player name, character name, occupation, race (in fantasy settings), and Focus number; and screen share to show maps. For my style of play, that works great.

          I’m also investigating a shared drawing board app that will let everyone involved interact with a sketch map.

          Roll20.net represents miniatures use very well. I’m just more of a mental-picture gamer. It’s great, though, that we all have options to suit our own play style!
