Game Session Tonight!

UPDATE 30-Sep-11: We’re exploring Eden Prairie tonight (September 30th) at 7:30 pm MDT. Skype and Twiddla will be used (instead of Google+)

Do YOU have what it takes to brave a savage land of radioactive waste crawling with mutant creatures?

I am looking to try out the new features on Google+ for online gaming. I’m especially keen to see how it handles desktop sharing, as this is something that I haven’t been able to do on a Mac via Skype.

(We’ll be using Skype and Twiddla instead. I’ve set up a Tempora Mutantur space at http://www.twiddla.com/mutantur.)

Two potential scenarios come to mind:

  1. The PCs in the Eden Prairie expeditions have discovered a vault complex that is begging to be delved, but they need additional manpower (and firepower) to do so.
  2. Mysterious radio transmissions have been recently been detected by Tau’s technical staff, emanating in bursts from the vicinity of Ember (north of Tau). A Surface Expedition Team is requested to patrol the wastes near Ember, using sensitive radio receivers to triangulate and determine the location.

(The group has decided to continue delving Eden Prairie.)

  1. I actually tried out the Google+ tonight for the first time. We gave the “Hangouts with Extras” a test, and it worked well for sharing desktop window – which is lacking in Skype for the Mac. The audio feed cut out after a while, though. Not sure if this was a but in Google+ or something with the mic.

    We also tried out a web-based whiteboard called “Twiddla”. It worked really well and has a (simple) built-in dice roller. Skype with Twiddla would work just fine as well, if I have trouble getting Google+ running smoothly.

    I’m thinking Thursday, Sept 29th might work for a game session. Who is on board?

    Personally I want to stay with Skype. I will go try Twiddla. I have noticed that every time I try to follow links from the new Yahoo mail to this sight and others my computer locks up. The locking up will not keep me from playing as I do not have any problems when I just come here from my bookmark.

    Thursday might work for me but I am thinking not; however…. Friday or saterday are MUCH better.
    I am really wanting to go back to Eden. If we do Bart is hoping that the same people can go back with him as went the last time. The jump suit that has the company name on it should be of great value.

  4. Let me check for folks on Friday and Saturday. Skype and Twiddla would work fine for me. I’ll send you an e-mail.

  5. Looks like we’re up to two players for Friday night. Who else is in?

    We’re probably going to use a combination of Skype and Twiddla for the game (instead of Google+).
