Hi, all. I’m going to be remote GMing Masters of Umdaar for a mom, dad, and two boys, 8 and 12, that all live in the same house. I’ll be the only one not in the room with them. I’ve used Roll20 and Discord in the past, but I’m not sure that’s going to work with 2 kids and 2 adults using the same computer (or different computers within audio range of each other).
I’m trying to come up with alternatives. I’m thinking about using Zoom or Google Hangouts plus Google Sheets for character sheets and battlemap. I’m also thinking about having them use paper character sheets, pencils, and physical dice at home, and only sharing the battlemap online, maybe as a shared Google Slide so everyone can write on it.
Anyone done an online game with the GM in one location and all the players together somewhere else? And has anyone done online games with kids? Any advice or ideas would be much appreciated. Looking for logistical/technical help but also ways of keeping it entertaining for the kiddoes.
