Forget about doing an entire campaign or even module on Roll 20. But what do you think of running a one session playtest on it, just to see how it goes? Even if we just did something like play out a combat?
And then if it goes well, who knows, maybe it will evolve into something.
I never use it either. I was on Myspace and got a lot of crappers from the past then Facebook I thought it would be a new start but instead it was crappers phase two. Now I've got a new rule no relatives except my sister so I don't have to talk on the phone!
I added you to the circle so you can invite me once I'm in the circle I think.
Just to clarify: Google Plus is not required to use Roll 20. You can log into Roll 20 site directly, create a campaign or join a game, and have video chat that way.
I think the key to using Roll 20 is mastering the use of the different layers and what the DM allows the players to see. That way you could have a dungeon or adventuring area already drawn out and 'reveal' it as the players move through it by lifting the fog of war effect.
It took me about an hour to get my video picture on there. I kept getting that pattern where my name was.
I disable it in the right hand settings. Then I restarted and enabled it and a little FLASH settings box appeared over the pattern and said it was disabled. I enabled it and it came to life.
The weird thing was when I enabled it in Google Plus I logged in with the same ROLL20 account from when we tried it a while ago so all that scribbled was from back then. I kept putting in my Google Gmail which wasn't linked (it was created in my Yahoo mail). But now its fine.
From what it looks like it might be just as good but I'm not sure if that putting views of web pages will work.
Here is a screenshot of it without GOOGLE HANGOUT:
For everybody who wasn't there the shadow area can't be seen in Player view so the demon on the left can only be seen by the DM and the giant-sized "female Thuggee" on the right is partially moving into view. While the PC (the M-U with red cap in the middle) and the undead (zombies and I think its skeleton) are all in view.
