First off, I just want to say that the program is awesome and could be a huge game changer for my group. Great job! Now, on to my question. I'm using an Asus transformer (tf101) and I'm having trouble importing images to create new maps and tokens. I can get as far as selecting an image, but when I choose one, the app just shows the loading image and throws me back to the default map and tokens. Anyone else having this problem? Is there a work around or solution? Any help would be much appreciated. As soon as I know that it will work on my tablet I'll be throwing money at it! Thanks in advance all!

Map import issues... by StAtiC9StAtiC9, 25 Jul 2014 13:32

Hi all,

Have someone looked at SkCombat VT? It still lacks online connectivity but it can be used on PbP games (shared maps) and it runs on laptops, tablets and smartphones.

Also, I don't see Tabletop connect on your list.

It depends on what you are looking for. RPGs aren't generally designed to be played solitaire. If you want an interactive tactical display showing virtual miniatures on a map, Battlegrounds: RPG Edition is a great choice. It's also very well suited for playing boardgames, wargames, card games and dice games.

For your solitaire needs, Battlegrounds Gaming Engine might be an even better choice (and more economical).

Hi everybody,
I just would like to know if there are some VTs which could be used for solitaire roleplaying and eventually to help fo solitaire boardgaming and card gaming.

I was playing this since WOTC's early beta days, and when GameTableOnline took over, I made the transition. I have been running and playing games since the beginning (when we had to hand-enter all of the PC and monster data, and draw most of the maps because tiles were practically nonexistent), and it's only improved since being in the hands of GTO.

As a free table, it is perfectly usable. You are given access to the City, Wilderness, and Dungeon Master tile sets, and various PC and Monster tokens. There are other conveniences available at a nominal fee to unlock, but even without them, the table is playable.

And as for not usable with other settings.. I have seen many AD&D games run on it, Call of Cthulu.. and I am about to run a Cyberpunk 2020 game on the table. Yes, the formatted character sheet is for 4e D&D, but that doesn't mean other game systems can't be used on it, with a little data entry and custom dice rolls.

Same as a lot of people it seems, I was confronted to the fact that at some point my whole rpg table was scattered across the country (france in my case).
I know a bit in programming and came up with the idea of an online tabletop, but never really had the time and skills to go very far.

Maybe we could gather and work on something?

After having recently discovered virtual tabletops over a week ago, I had actually begun combing the internet for what you seem to be describing. I, for one, would very much love to see something that's more of a cross between a virtual tabletop and multiplayer online RPG. Specifically, the option to choose between initiative/turn-based/story-driven combat, to an active combat system, similar to what games like Dungeons and Dragons Online and Star Trek Online have. I can't believe just how much I really enjoy a combat system of that type.

Further, it would be nice to be able to log onto the game and engage in a premade, automated quest while waiting for your RP group to log on, so you can then move to the more dynamic format of gaming with a live GM. Here, you and your group can choose what rules to play by, the story and context of the game, and the method of combat. With a live GM heading the group, players' decisions really do affect the specifics and even the ending of the story, as the GM-controlled NPCs can actually respond directly to whatever creative action the players attempt to engage in, unlike AI-controlled NPCs.

A multiplayer online RPG, like this, would no longer be the repetitive grind that wholly AI-controlled MMORPGs currently are, while also preserving what makes tabletop RP gaming so much fun: interactive storytelling and roleplaying.

So, to make a long story short, yes, I'd very much love to see what you come up with.

Hey there
I'm a hobbyist programmer, artist and video game developer. I also love RPGs, so the idea came up for doing an online rpg that looks and plays like some elder scrolls game with one of the connected players as the game master. I noticed there are so many great videogames that borrow elements from RPG, except what makes RPG what it is! at the same time there are several tools for playing rpg online, the virtual tabletops, that doesn't seem interested in taking advantages of what we can do with computers. That's my motivation for this project.

Outside this circle (people who understand how tabletop rpg work) I am having an incredibly hard time explaining the idea, they don't understand what i mean by game master. Thus I turn to this community, I would like to know what you think of this project. Do you want to see this game a reality?

I will suggest you this 3d online rpg virtual tabletop with a very nice graphic.

Epical Online

Google IT!

Would be a contender if it weren't for the grotesque price tag.

More previews of tokens to be found within the Fantasy art kit, finished versions might look a tiny bit different than seen here, and some of the tokens will come in many versions:

My name is Raymond Gaustadnes and I'm a freelance digital artist living in Norway. I'm currently running a kickstarter project, named "Game Master's Campaign - Fantasy art kit" and I'm kinda reluctantly seeking out any forums I can find that are about Virtual tabletop softwares, in order to show that my project is live and possibly finding Game Master, module makers or game developers in general that might have use of my artwork with their games.

The kit will contain, in the end: terrain maps, tiles to construct structures ontop of the terrain, decals to give variation to the terrain and a massive bunch of items, objects, creatures, monsters and fantasy characters to place ontop of the finished campaign map(s). Everything will come in two sizes, the largest versions allows you to print out the artwork, for use with your physical rpg campaigns should you wish for that.

The intended use for this kit, or should I say kits as I plan to create smaller addons to the main kit, it for digital use. You either load everything inside your VTT of choice and put together the map there, or take the terrains and tiles into any software capable of handling PNG files (transparent backgrounds), create your maps there and then bring the maps and tokens into your VTT of choice.

I have started painting the kit but there's tons of work to be done still. I've posted updates and examples for the kit over the last weeks in another forum, with some really nice feedback.

I've worked with many game companies in the past, creating artwork for various physical and digital games, you can see some of them here (be warned, you'll find new and not so recent artwork in the gallery :) )

Shockbolt's Deviantart gallery

And then there's the kickstarter project page here: Game Master's Campaign - Fantasy art kit]

Don't feel obliged to back it, but there are some nice rewards for the higher pledge levels, such as acquiring a license to use my artwork for your commercial projects, those rewards are limited.

Last but not least, here are some larger sized previews of the tokens and tiles, keep in mind: all creatures, monsters, characters, objects and items will come without backgrounds, this allows you to place and rotate them any way you want ontop of your maps. Files for digital use will be of reasonable size(sizes, as they will vary in size as to what the tokens are, dragons will be larger than goblins etc). A fantasy player character might be 128x128 pixels in size, more than enough to show some nice details in the token when used, or 64x64 pixels.


more previews and updates to be posted later :)
