    So we all have computers and Google Chat is free. (So is skype but I’d rather not use that)
    Any of you lot interested in setting some sort of pseudo-regular online get-together to talk about gaming?

    We could hear all the accents people have πŸ™‚

    Then you’d discover my true identity. I’m really a Texan. I can’t afford to hire that sexy Irish voice every time I want to chat πŸ™‚ Like a good idea…but sometimes its easier for me to merely have the lap top available while the wife’s watching something on TV or the kids are playing and a phone call/skype is not very convenient but I would be on if it was just every so often

    I actually wouldn’t mind trying a game using web cam showing the playing area and use chat/voice for the players to give orders… getting the time zones to align could be a downer though.

     

    But failing that – it could be useful for Ivan to discuss parts of his rules he is writing.

    Well, the intention wasn’t self-promotion though I’ve been tossing around the idea of doing some audio-recording to address common rules questions πŸ™‚

    A game by webcam would be interesting. Should probably be something pretty casual, since it’d be hard to figure out absolute exact positioning and whatnot. I know people who play RPG’s by webcam though.

    A nice idea, but maybe a little more structured in what we should discuss? A very open forum can turn into chaos very quickly is my experience..

    I would be onboard.

    My experience in Voice chat during computer gaming is it turns in 3 mad conversations at once, or awkward silence.

    Though those do involve teenagers.

    To model the effect of Nuclear weapons on the wargaming table, apply jerry can of fuel to board, light match and stand well back.

    My Helldivers games this week have been mostly stoners and “HOLY **** DID YOU SEE THAT, THAT WAS AWESOME!”

    So did this idea get any further ?

    Nope, but I’ll take initiative:

    This Friday at 7 PM (1900) US pacific time.

    Time zones will be a bear no matter what so we do this regularly, we can always vary the times.

    I imagine it’ll be with google chat. I’ll post details later.

    I think this will be 1 pm Aussie Eastern Time on Saturday… I have an appointment in the morning, but I will see how I go and try to make it.

    Just a quick reminder that if all goes well, I will be on in an hour and a half. When we get a bit closer, I’ll post the link, then we’ll see what happens πŸ™‚

    It’ll be using Google Hangouts for this time, so I imagine you’ll need a Google account to log in.

    I just returned home – need to hang my washing out and have lunch, but should be able to make it

    Ping me on Google chat when you’re about and I’ll start the hangout. It just occurred to me that I’ve never done this before πŸ™‚

    I think once it’s started, I can just post the link here,in case others want to pitch in. It may just be you and me though πŸ™‚

    Maybe try plugging a speaker into the port? Speakers work as a (poor quality) mic if plugged into the mic port of a guitar amp…

    Those are brave men knocking at our door. Let's go kill them!

    Ended up juryrigging it with the headset microphone and the speakers in the laptop.

    Hopefully next time we can get more people than just me and Shelldrake πŸ™‚

    I would love to read the transcript ……..

    I was very polite and reserved, so the transcript wouldn’t be that interesting…. unless you wanted to pay for it, in which case it was wild and full on

    The X-rated version is 50 dollars in unmarked bills.
