Winter's Daughter

The first of our new series of games using the Old School Essentials (OSE) ruleset published by Necrotic Gnome and also the first that we have played using an online Virtual Tabletop (VTT). I'd been playing in a few online convention games during 2020 and with the pandemic in 2021 the pace really picked up so I managed to gain a lot of experience playing in this medium, enough to convince me that it would be a possibility if I could settle on a particular VTT and get myself organised enough to run some games. Foundry turned out to be that VTT for a number of reasons but a big one is that I can run it as a node.js service for no additional cost beyond the initial purchase on my existing internet server.

We played
Winter's Daughter, an introductory adventure suitable for a beginning party with two Rangers, a Fighter and Druid testing themselves in the Tomb of Sir Chyde. Proving themselves up to the test and now a level higher they will continue onto The Incandescent Grottoes as their next adventure.

We are a new group to playing RPG's online but slowly picking up speed aided by OSE's clean and clear rulebooks and supporting VTT materials. The focus now is on playing as much as possible to get the flow of online play working well. I'm having fun and I think the players are too, they're coming back at least. :)
