Nope.  Been doing pen and paper Dungeons and Dragons on virtual table top.  I have been DMing games.  Got two groups right now doing Waterdeep Dragon Heist.  I even got into streaming them.  Still play WoW and everyone in my D&D groups are guild mates and we raid every Friday and Saturday nights in WoW.  D&D VTT with Fantasy Grounds (www.fantasygrounds.com) every Thursday nights.  Twitch TV look for wmljohn1.  I also have the first session up on youtube channel wmljohn.  We are still working out the kinks but it's fun to get back into old school D&D.

I might be starting up another campaign for another group soon if anyone is interested into playing old school roll the dice D&D on a Virtual Table Top.

My son says Fortnight is 'SO 2017' and doesn't play it anymore.  ::)  He plays some other who knows what crap. Always buying upgrades and whatnot for them.

Anyone playing vanilla Wow Classic? Just started a couple toons this past week and both are L11. It's slow going for sure but I do like it. I started right before BC came out so got a taste of it back in the day. There are a literal TON of people playing it. Server is always on the high side and there are a bunch of them (servers). It really feels like the original, minus the Chinese gold selling dead orcs spelling out 'BUY GOLD' with their dead bodies and the constant server crashes. It's really stable. Actually am enjoying it....

Does the DM enter the information or do you buy the program then buy pre-planned adventures?  Do they have pre-programmed sounds, maps etc, then you can buy more?

What is the actual name of the program so I can look into it myself?

Fantasy Grounds.  The link to the program is in my first post.  The youtube link is to the campaign I have been running for a group.  The campaign is Waterdeep Dragon Heist.

Does the DM enter the information or do you buy the program then buy pre-planned adventures?  (DOES IT ALL.  You can do home brew, make up one shots or Wizards of the Coast campaigns)  Do they have pre-programmed sounds, (Not built in.  I use Syrinscape and Discord) maps etc (YES), then you can buy more? (YES either through the fantasy grounds store or the DMs Guild (www.dmsguild.com))

What is the actual name of the program so I can look into it myself?  Fantasy Grounds.

I have been using it for almost a year now.  Fantasy Grounds Unity is coming out early 2020 which will have a ton more features.  Map dynamic lighting and line of sight masks for one.

Thanks.  I found it on steam.  But your link wasn't working for me.  Gave me an ad to buy that website name.

Oh ****.  I left out the "S" at the end of fantasy groundS in the web address.  Yes it is on Steam and you can link the accounts.  I don't have a steam account so I just get my stuff straight up from Fantasy Grounds or the DMs Guild.

Hey Bill,

Fantasy Grounds is on sale on Steam for ten bucks if you know anyone who needs it.  The add ons are greatly discounted as well if you need any of them.  Steam is really the only way to buy cpu games anymore especially when they have sales going on like now.

I did not buy it though.  Dropped almost 90 bucks today on the 5th edition DnD books.

I could never get my kids interested in it when they were young but now that they are adults they started playing 5th edition.  They have asked me to DM for them but since they live close no need for FG at the moment.

Yeah.  The FG store also has license on sale.  They run the same sale on the Smiteworks store.  I am going to drop my monthly subscription for an owned key.  Then I will purchase another Unity key when they go live with that new VTT. 

I am starting a campaign with some folks that will be live broadcast on twitch on Tuesday nights.  I am also starting a game on Saturday nights.  He might need some more players if you are interested.  I have decided to try the Cleric for this one.  Jingdong Macadangdang is his name.
