My last post was about stupid technology, but I want to talk about good technology. The kind that allows us to play our games over the internet. I've been looking around at VTT and finding the pros and cons of each.
What VTT do you like best and why? And what are its drawbacks?
My gaming group has been using Fantasy Grounds II for several years. It looks good, has a great virtual dice roller, you can add maps and figures without too much a problem and it supports nearly any ruleset you can think of.
Draw backs. It costs a little. More for GM than player. Although they do have a new Ultimate License available that allows a GM to host players who have not purchased FG2. The major drawback is it can get real finicky. There have been nights when we spend a lot of time fiddling with it to get everyone connected and going. And one night recently we had to cancel. It just wasn't cooperating. Fiddling with it is fairly common occurrence where the cancellation is rare.
I haven't found a VTT that compares with FG2, but when I run games on Google+ I'm curious as to what people have been using and if you are pleased with the program's performance.
Friday. Short week. Love it. Weekend within grasp. Just need to get through day. Remember iPod, reduces day by 25%.
