Pretty much all of us have people we’d love to game with more often. Unfortunately, teleportation technology hasn’t quite been worked out yet. So while you’d like to game with friends in other states, countries, or even hemispheres, it’s not so easy to do. However, with a virtual tabletop program, you can get the feeling of all of you in one spot, gaming together. The Skirmish Virtual Tabletop didn’t quite make it the first time they were on Kickstarter. However, they’ve retooled, finishing up their closed beta, and are back up looking to get funded this next time around.
The system is designed to handle pretty much RPG system you throw at it, from d6 to d20, sci-fi to fantasy, and everything in-between. It’s going to be free to play, so you don’t have to worry about everyone having to buy a membership or something in order to play. And it’s not just for long-distance gaming, but can help enhance your in-person gaming sessions, too.
The new campaign is up and running now. They’re about 1/3 of the way to their goal with still 27 days to go.
