This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
The message boards have been upgraded. Please log in to your existing account by clicking here. It will ask twice, so that it can properly update your password and login information.

You did it correctly. Just right click and copy the link on the page. It's unique.. I can even see attempts at rerolls. :) Not that I have trust issues. Oh yah, you need an account to save your rolls I gues.

I did not re-roll!

This is the firsty first result. I only fondled with the site after posting my results. Oh yes, and I tried to save the bugger.

I just tested it myself and it forced me to register, so I wouldn't be surprised. NO big deal. :)

Try pointing your web browser to this address: http://24.35.40.35:10015

This link won't work forever, but I'll hang out until you connect or three hours goes by (from 5PM est) so... from now until 2400 Zulu

Password is 'test', use any player name you like.

Aha, I figured out what my issue with the program is (aside from some lag).

When you login to the game, where it says 'Interface' choose "Basic Interface" instead of the IE6/Firefox version. This allows chat to run simultaneously in another window/tab, and solves the automatic refresh issues.

I'm setting up Skype right now.

I installed Skype - but I don't have a headset.  Yeah, I'm that luddite even though I make my livelihood from the googlebox.

tomorrow I'm getting me something at lunch...so tomorrow night, if you want, we can test out the skype...

Let me know if you want to test the screen monkey again...Sett's a lucky bastard...

So it's OK to roll something up, then?

Here´s a two minute-sketch from memory. Tili-Teshub didn´t have time to draw while exploring alone...

Yah, roll something up!

When you get your Skype installed, post here or send me a PM. I will PM you as well. I think what I will do is (when the game happens) start a conference call, then give out the URL. If Skype don't do it for us, I'll switch to Ventrillo (which will work fine).

I just purchased a cheap headphone/microphone thingie, so I'll be good to go this evening. Got some work to do, then I'll roll something up...

And the kids are gone tonight...which...now that I think about it, might result in a delay ;)



But it should only be a minute or two :rimshot:

There's no real game tonight, but I will put the server up again.

I am setting up a test for Skype tonight, (PM me once you have Skype installed and I will send you a test call so I end up in your calling list).

I will also put the game server at 7PM EST. I have to finish mapping and setting up until then. I already have Settembrini's Skype info.

Anyone else (even you, random and anonymous visitor to this forum) who wants to play some AD&D1e should let me know!

Thats fine. My idea is to run the conference call from here. I'll keep on eye on your 'signed in' status, unless your'e just invisible.

I'm signed in right now.

James, PM me when you get Skype running, just so we can trade info.
