DLN Roleplaying Campaign

Continuing the discussion from Dungeons And Dragons anyone?:

Some folks in the Discord server expressed interest in a DLN roleplaying group. I volunteered to serve as game master, and thought I would extend the invitation to the gamers on these forums as well. To that end, I’ve created a form for interested parties to fill out.

Apologies for leaning on the Big G, but Limesurvey was not cooperating. Perhaps I’ll set up a simpler, self-hosted solution in the future.

EDIT: No prior experience whatsoever is needed!

EDIT2: While I did put D&D 5e as an example on the survey, I should have mentioned that I don’t own that particular game. Just FYI!

Submitted. :slight_smile:

How often would you think we would play?

Weekly, Bi-Weekly, Monthly?

That depends on the players, really. I should have put that in the poll. :upside_down_face: If a weekly schedule works out, awesome, but if it’s less frequent (which is probably more realistic, scheduling being what it is), that’s cool too! Do you have a preference?

You don’t need to self-host a G Docs alternative, I started a thread to help other users tackle the problem:

FOSS alternatives to Google Docs

For me it would probably be bi-weekly or monthly. I can’t set off a specific day each week.

Will this be hosted on the mumble server?

If it’s on Mumble i’m in. :smiley:

I’m not familiar with Mumble, but I’m sure I could figure it out if that’s where the group wants to do it. I answered the survey.

That’s part of what the survey is there to find out. :upside_down_face: I will say that Mumble seems to be winning at this time.

Ryan wrote up some instructions. I actually haven’t used it much either, as most of the people I interact with are on Discord anyway.

Ive moved away from discord after their ToS became unacceptable for me, which was a shame because I really liked their platform a lot. I mean they got steam chat to upgrade itself (too little too late though)

Which ToS update was that?

I think it was around october 2018 where they stated that you agree not to sue them or something

Yikes! I probably wasn’t thinking about privacy as much when that update came out.

It was the time i contemplated on moving to linux and deGoogle my life). The next month, i moved and started moving stuff to linux, saying goodbye to PUBG and its first map expansion (fun times). I hadnt willfully look back ever since (I was forced to reinstall windows to my main machine because i couldnt seem to flash Lineage OS to my new phone).

Anyway, along that time, I reviewed Discord’s privacy policy and decided to move away as well.

Alright, makes sense. If you’re interested, though, fill out the survey!

Howdy @DannyBoy, I wanted to let you know about https://foundryvtt.com/,

It is self hostable and can integrate into Jitsi. So you wouldn’t have to worry about running mumble alongside if you want it all in one package

Thanks for sharing that! Looks interesting.

Ouch, a proprietary application that costs $50 per license? Sounds like a no.

compared to Roll20 and Fantesy Grounds it has the best pricing.

I havent found an open source option for VTT yet.
