In working on Heroes Against Darkness I’ve discovered the great community of role-players out there on the internets, and specifically the great community of not-crazy role-players on Google+. Through these people I’ve met and gamed with Charles Jaimet, who’s one of the programmers of Tabletop Forge, which is a free Google Hangouts application:
“Tabletop Forge is a Google+ Hangout application that lets you play tabletop roleplaying games inside of a Google+ Hangout. It includes things like dice rolling, whispering, and map functions. Please see the features page for a list of all the current features and the roadmap for what we have planned in the future!”
I mentioned that Tabletop Forge is free, so Charles and Joshuha Owen launched a Kickstarter to support the project, allowing them to license game tokens, maps, and other cool game add-ons. The Kickstarter is in it’s last few days, so this is your last chance to get on board and help support these guys who are building a great tool for everyone in their own time. Every dollar you pledge helps make Tabletop Forge better, and that’s good for everyone (although it does sound a bit like socialism… 🙂 ).
As an added bonus, the $120 HORN OF SUMMONING pledge level gets you four-session Heroes Against Darkness mini-campaign with me (think of how awesome that would be).
Go show Charles and Joshuha some respect and put some money in to their Kickstarter:
