Since I'm in the middle of negotiating with my hubby whether he can abandon me and the baby for 24 hours to go game with his out-of-town crew, this may just have saved our marriage. ;)

I've used Roll20 in the past. It is a fairly good system with some flaws. It doesn't give you as many map making options as Map Tools but it is also easier to connect to if you don't have someone who is confident setting up the server on their computer.

yes!  in fact, i just used it this past thursday for my current campaign.

basically:  it's really convenient and has most of the features you'd expect from virtual tabletop software, but the ui is horrible.

fantasy grounds is way nicer, but costs more than "free".

Well, I am also so curious to try this out if got a chance.  Many time I like to play a game, but in this new year 2019, I have made a resolution to complete the previous series.

Well, Happy New Year to all!! May this year all your wishes comes true.
