DCC, Roll20, and Me (that rhymes)

Post by GothmogIV »

Hello, friends. I am new to DCC, having become a refugee from D&D5e. It looks amazing, and I can't wait to dig in more. One thing: is there any play to bring the rules/compendium to Roll20? We--a bunch of older guys who have been playing together for almost 40(!) years-- play exclusively online now, using Roll20. I have found it extraordinarily difficult to run a virtual game without compendium support (spells, monsters, tables, etc.) I know that Foundry has DCC available, but...any plans for Roll20?

Thanks everyone! Great game!

If all my players could get one or the other apps to work at the same time, I'd prefer to run online games using roll20 or Fantasy Grounds for maps & visual aids, including text & dice rolls, and discord for voice, although I guess that discord also has dice rolling bots, but I've never used them.

Only worrying about maps & visual aids for roll20 means not coding rules into tokens & maps, and everything is handled "manually", but I find that this is less tedious than coding. I mean, for me, it took me months to code in a lot of my home-made scenario stats only so that players drop out as soon as we start because of various problems that IRL tabletop groups suffer from; ennui, scheduling, etc. but instead of "vehicle" problems, there is now software/computer/internet problems.

But now that I know that FG has DCC core rules, I really want to check it out again!

Thanks, freitaslex!
