I've lurked in EpicTable's shadow ever since I first met John two years ago at Gen Con (and received a groovy ET coin) and recently decided to come out and show my support by purchasing a Box Set. I have been playing RPGs since the mid 1980's (told you I was old) and in recent years I've seen our quasi-regular game group fracture and eventually fall apart due to, in many cases, circumstances often attributed to 'real life'. Having introduced my wife and son to RPGs, I was able to extend my love for the hobby, yet, even that has died away as my wife fulfilled her gaming itch with FB social games and the boy has grown into his teen years to find the allure of sports & girls drawing him away.
So, here I am...hoping to use EpicTable as a catalyst to once again bring my gaming friends around a common 'table' for RPG lovin'! There are several goals for this thread. First, I need a location (that is easily accessible) to share my various notes/findings as I learn the finer points of the EpicTable tool. Hopefully, other new users of ET will benefit from some of the lessons learned along the way. The second goal for this thread is to list the third party tools/utilities I will ultimately use to make future ET sessions run as smoothly as possible.
