I just performed some backdating of my Adventurers League logs from the sessions I’ve been running on Fantasy Grounds. I utilize DM Logs at AdventurersLeagueLog.com and low and behold, I now exceed 100 total hours of DM time!
My most important message is at the end but there are a few thoughts I’d like to share based on this revelation:
- If it wasn’t for my players this would never have happened. The Fantasy Grounds and Adventurers League community have been amazing. I haven’t had a terrible session yet. Just different ranges from good to great. ( I have had some bad actors but it didn’t ruin any sessions yet)
- The people I have met have opened doors to things I didn’t imagine. Whether is was getting an invite to DM AL sessions at the Fantasy Grounds College or help review/edit content the guys at Triple J Gaming; I just pictured myself as a regular guy in the hobby.
- The hobby is definitely growing. So much so that it is painful to think about all the players out there that cannot find a virtual table to sit at and play DnD.
My last point brings me to my personal call to action. I want to be able to encourage a unified Adventurers League Virtual Tabletop hub for players to find games. Fantasy Grounds has its own forums and Discord system. Roll20, on the surface, has good LFG system, and Warhorn technically is available as well. With so many fractured forums/Discord channels/LFG systems I feel we as a community are letting down a large portion of our player base.
Please let me know what you think!
