I don't know how well that would work, could take a week to finish a single turn since I don't think any of us are in the same time zones lol.
I own D20Pro (full version, GM + 4 guest spots) of course since the TME rule set isn't open-use (i.e. no one can release or add material except Outland Arts) We'd have to wing it for sheets, manually run all HC checks etc... Can't build the ruleset for d20Pro leagally either since it is owned by Outland Arts/Mr. McAusland (aka The Mutantlord himself) who from what I have seen doesn't grant creative use licenses or permission.
Not even sure we could run one using any online gaming software legally due to that.

We don't need all that hi-tech mumbo-jumbo. All we'd need is a VOIP, like Skype or Discord. Hell, we could even go real old school and just use a bulletin board. Back when computers were new, I ran a pretty successful Top Secret game using play by post on a bulletin board. Sure it would take forever, but what's wrong with that?

Damn... More I think about it the older I feel. I remember Green screen & amber screen monitors (that weighed a frickin ton!).. RGB monitors were all the rage! 16 & 32 color palettes! Woo hoo! lol.. Ok I'm a fossil, I admit it.
I don't have to outrun THEM, I only have to outrun YOU!

Right there with ya, Thorn. Turning 54 in a coupla months. I remember well the first days of home computing. Had a Pong when it was new. First computer had a cassette for loading; took about 30 minutes for even small programs. Same with RPG's. Do you remember what it was like to have a game store nearby that had dozens and dozens of RPG titles, not just four shelves (if you're lucky) of D&D 5E and Pathfinder stuff?

Yeah it was nice. Now, don't even have a local gaming store. Last one closed up damn near ten years ago. Been buying online since then. Nearest gaming store of any kind to me now is nearly 150 miles away! Of course I haven't had the $ to buy a real, physical book in a while. $45-50 per BOOK is just not in my price range anymore. Why I have went all PDF collections now. Usually can get the PDFs for around $20 or less per PDF. Only way I can even do it now.
