Online gaming software

Postby Dracomax on Wed Apr 01, 2009 7:14 am

Recently some of my freinds moved away, and this presents a problem: we can't easily get together to play tabletop role-playing games.

So, I was wondering if anyone could suggest any good programs for online gaming.

Preferably free, but cheap would work almost as well.

You may want to get in touch with Ryan if you're still in the St. Louis area. He might be interested in organizing a D&D game. ;)

Holy mother of god yes I would be. I just can't get enough people to fill the slots. My own group kind of went their own seperate ways about two years ago.

I would certainly be interest in a game, and most of my nights are free.

But I would still like to know if anyone knows of any good online programs. gaming online with old freinds beats out losing track of them any day.

I play 2 free MMORPGs: Shin Megami Tensei: Imagine and Perfect World International. Might also want to look into Guild Wars, you need to purchase the game but there are no monthly fees.

I currently play Puzzle Pirates, which I see they've started spamming on this forum now. Some of the oceans are free, but the game is easier if you pay.

Another free game I played a lot of was Ragnarok Online. You used to have to play on Private Servers if you wanted it to be free, but they've opened up an official free server now.

I also did phbites.comicgenesis.com and hntrac.comicgenesis.com way back when.
