Last night, after a year of real time, we wrapped up the plot point campaign of Savage Worlds' Slipstream setting. The GM was jb105 and he did an phenomenal job. The PCs started as zero XP novices and by the conclusion, we reached the exalted status of Legendary. The players were myself, Grimmshaw, Hockey_Hippie, starjunky, and great gamer named Will who isn't a member here. The campaign was my first using Roll20 and Skype for voice. I can't thank jb enough for providing such a wonderful gaming experience. I also want to thank the other players for creating so many outstanding IC and OOC moments. Good times guys, GOOD TIMES!

So far as I know, January. We haven't chosen a setting yet and we lost two players, so we are looking for new members for the group if you are looking.

It was a great campaign put on by a great GM. Good times all around.

I'll have to ask jb105 if he kept any notes. It was on Skype, so no log of the campaign is available.

doesn't skype have the capability to output chats sessions, so long as one does so before it is quit out of?

Yes it does for text, but this campaign was voice, so unfortunately, no record of the individual sessions. I'll check with jb105 to see if he has any notes he can link.

Same limitation as face to face. I've uses Skype to bring in seriously out of town players.

The members of our group definitely count as seriously out of town with respect to one another.

Just a bit: Colorado, Texas, Iowa, Connecticut, and Canada. We weren't even in the same time zone.

Congrats on your concluded campaign! There's nothing like a good campaign. Also good to hear about more Will's in gaming!

The most I have had was itwo at once. One normally face to face friend was in Virgina that night and The other lives in Spokane, Wa. It's best if you can arrange for a large TV as the computer monitor in the case of using Skype to supplement a face to face game. Large TVs are making that easier.

We didn't do video. We limited Skype to voice. In fact, I don't think any of us even considered using video.

huh, i guess i forgot that not everyone has audiohijack... records any audio signal passing through your computer. there are a number of options out there that will auto record in the background.

Is it necessary to be on the same time zone, cause i think that's gonna be a little tricky.

No it is not a requirement to be in the same time zone. I run a Serenity campaign with players in the Pacific, Central and Eastern zones in the US while am in Mountain. In addition, to covering four American timezones, I have players in England, Norway and Finland. The game is from 10am to 2pm Mountain on Sundays and it works out for all of us, even with the game wrapping at 11pm for the Finn.
