Guest Author's Note:
"This comic was inspired by the time I tried to get Maptools working for my gaming group. See, the only member of the group who could get it up and running had left due to some... er... difficulties, which meant no Maptools. On top of that, Skype was acting weird at the time and kept dropping calls (or maybe that happened a different time). I must've spent hours trying to get it to work, but no one could connect because none of my ports were open. Eh heh... I hope I'm not the only one who had to spend hours upon frustrating hours on figuring out how to open ports... >_>

"Anyways, it was an honour to guest author for Newbiespud again and I hope you enjoyed these pages at least as much as I enjoyed making them. ^_^"

Yep, I hate those things but it is the only way I can play DnD other than play by post. And the game moves too slowly then.

I type way too slowly to play online. It takes time to get the words the way I want them.

Play by post worked better for that, but several years of running a game took their toll. Not a proud time in my life, to put it mildly. Never running a show like that again.

Online voice-chat programs could help now with that, assuming you have a decent internet connection?

Yeah, that's why we made Pony Tales/Living Legends - so we could play an RPG without needing to use a board; making it really easy to just run over voicechat without map tools at all.

Me and my friends use Skype and maptools for all our games, personally had very few problems with either. Though all our custom stuff in maptools have been known to cause a few problems on occasion, it is generally easily fixed.

I once tried opening a port for an internet game. Ended up "sinking all my ships" as my brother put it.

Luckily he's good with computers and figured out my problem: Me, mostly. ^_^; I had my internet configurations all borked up.

I prefer to roleplay over IRC, but you really can't do that with 4th Edition because you need a map.
