I've run 4th Ed. D&D online for 3 years with friends in Canada (I live in Texas).  We used MapTools for the first 2 years. It's a good, robust open source system with lots of community support. I noticed Roll20.net this year and gave it a try. Haven't looked back since. It's made my job as DM much easier -- I run 3 campaigns on it (two 4th edition games and one old-school 1st edition game set in Greyhawk.) It doesn't have quite the macro capability that MapTools has, but for almost everything else it's hands-down much easier to get up and running. It supports integration into G+ Hangouts and also has its own voice and video chat if you don't want to use G+.
I started gaming using Google+ Hangouts a year ago. I started playing Dungeon’s and Dragons in 1975. My first rulebooks says they were the third printing. I played the Original Dungeon’s and Dragons, then first, second, and t...

(Sun03) Here's one way Republicans could have won the election. Don't give Karl Rove any ideas, though.

#BAFact: How big is the Sun? Roomy enough to fit 1.3 million Earths inside it.

The Sun is big. It's 700,000 km in radius, while the Earth's is about 6400 km. Volume goes as the cube of the radius, so if you take the ratio and cube it - (700000 / 6400)^3 - you get about 1.3 million. That's how many Earths could fit inside our star.

Heck, the Sun routinely makes sunspots bigger than our whole planet!

+Steve Bonario thanks for all the good information. The tile warping sounds annoying but not a deal breaker, so I think I will give this one shot!

Our galaxy is crammed full of planets!

Several new reports are coming out today presenting solid evidence that planets are freaking everywhere: one shows that there may be 100 billion planets in our galaxy alone, with 17 billion of them the size of Earth! 

I give details in the link below, but check other sources of news like +Fraser Cain +Universe Today +Ian O'Neill and others for more.

I'm an avid GTDer -- use it both at work and home. This is a great free Android app with support for the 3 primary GTD terms -- tasks, projects and contexts.
