Episode 112: Socially Distant Gaming and Onyx Path Con!

Onyx Pathcast

In which the trio talks about online gaming in various forms.

  • We’re going to talk about online gaming!
  • Alice is Missing
  • ViewScream and the Ripper FMV
  • Koldunic sorcery egregiously bad?
  • 12 minutes in, Eddy is on topic
  • Matthew was a Moderator
  • A bit on our usage of Roll20 and Astral
  • Some talk about chat-based roleplay
  • New Bremen!
  • We reminisce about early days of computing
  • The olden days of scrambled pornography
  • Audio- and video-based roleplaying
  • Performing a game, versus playing
  • Discord gaming
  • Onyx Path Con

A Note: During the podcast, Eddy says the Pugmire Kickstarter was in 2017, which leads to some timeline confusion. It was actually finished in March 2016! Time is, however, a flat circle right now so we forgive Eddy this error.

    The Onyx Path dice roller app does a pretty good job of adapting to the different games to address the issue Eddy mentioned about the dice being confusing.

      Oh totally, and there are lots of specialized tools for that. But it goes into the same area I mentioned with the Fantasy Flight version of Star Wars — it requires an extra tool. It’s not a deal breaker in many cases, but it adds a layer of logistics.
