Vassal or any other venue for online play

HI All!
I just in the last months realized that all my old minis have been re-statted and I have great interest in playing again.

I don't think vassal is updated, however it should still be a viable platform for practice, experimentation, and general minis fun.

If anyone is interested, please let me know. Schedule is flexible and I live in Southern California (GMT-8 hours, I believe).

RESURGENCE!

Hi Gilius,

I'd be interesting in playing. I've used roll20.net for some DDM games also; but maybe Vassal is better, I've never used it. Can Vassal be used with the newer miniatures?

Anyway, I'll PM you to see if we can get things running.

sounds good sir! The only thing I haven't gotten up to speed on are the items. I'm not sure where to get the list of items and I haven't played using them. But, I am not totally averse to trying them out. Maybe for the first game(Drunk we can do no items?

Sure thing, no problem. We can play no items.

For the future, regarding items (and all other info, really), you can visit Ira's web site that includes a download section with pretty much all you need including items.

You also have a web warband builder on that site under the "Search" tab, but it doesn't include about the last half dozen sets. That web builder is useful to copy-paste information if we use roll20.net.

You can also download from that site in the Useful Links section a more up-to-date warband builder ("DDM Warband Tool"), that one includes everything up to Storm King's Thunder (so almost up to date) and it's a bit easier to use IMO to build warbands. It should be updated shortly to include MM2.

Hi All DDMer's,
I have been playing around with roll20.net and it is indeed a good platform for online play. It looks really clean and vibrant, you can zoom all the way in to a perfectly rendered mini. If anyone wants to check it out, you can search "DDM" or "Skirmish" and at least one game page I have will show. There is some interest in from returning and new players as well so hopefully we can build the player base!

Ciao for now!

Vassal was last updated to 2012. It's got all the figures up to the the new Icons of the realms sets. You can easily enough proxy those. I still load it up occasionally and it runs fine and we played the EU vrs NA 2016 champ match on it last year with me versus Koen. Msg me and I would be glad to meet you and set up a time to demo it.
