The Patron runs will be Friday and Saturday nights. Probably something like 6pm and 9pm Central.

The GT rooms will be scattered about 20 minutes about starting at 7pm Central.


Will you need volunteers for coaching, etc.?


Having never used Zoom... I'll take one :)
*mental note* always listen to Jeff

Steve wrote: Jeff, Thank you for working to make a bad situation better. I have 2 questions. First, I have the free version of Zoom. It only allows for a 45 minute length on runtime. Will we be using DT's zoom account to access the GT experience?

Also, my son and I were both fortunate to acquire a GT each. Can we join same zoom group?


If the time limit becomes a problem, I can set up the event for Jeff on a corporate Zoom account - limit should be approximately 100 people.

Zoom is pretty easy to use. I was really referring to tasks like coaching or other usual volunteer roles.

Also, never used zoom before, but Fiddy helped me get set up. Very easy and just took minutes. But from what I gather, if you're just an attendee and Jeff sends you a link, it will ask you to download it at that time.

We might for Coaching. We are trying to set the rules for how this virtual TD thing will work, and I am not sure how the skill tests will work. The Rogue might need a different test.

The cool thing is that we can have lots of folks help virtually over Zoom. More info later. Thanks for the offer.

Oh man, not sure how difficult it would be to do, but imagine a phone ap that displays a tiny combat board, and you swipe up to slide your 'puck'.
this is not a signature.

Jeff: Will these Zoom sessions be made available for others to watch later on? I would love to see how this will work out, but don't have an access code or a GT.

Thanks and be safe!!

I guess they could also always just use an online dice roller instead of sliding. XD

Sorry, I am not sure...but probably not. I don't want folks to worry about being filmed/taped.

I am going to stand 7 feet away from my CPU while we do this. I will practice social distancing. That will keep my CPU from getting a virus or me..or worse COVID computer virus that infects me too. I will not be the first to get con crud through the computer

Cogwind's might work. We'd need to do an apple/android mirroring function so that it is visible for everyone (or just stick it under a camera). I'm not sure if everyone would be able to use it, though.

Worst case, we could just use dice - we are gamers, after all.
