RPG Sessions: Integrated Discord Bot and Character Sheets

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I've been noticing many people looking for a way to play online with others during our social distancing, and thought I'd give a plug to an app me and some friends have been developing for a bit. It's RPG Sessions, and has character sheets, vehicle sheets, dice roller, and they all integrate into a Discord bot that also manages initiative, experience, destiny points, and crits for characters & vehicles. The site is mobile friendly, and we are constantly adding more features. (our command reference document)

You can roll by skill name, or by dice name.

Our most recent feature includes a Game Table feature that is currently in development, that is also synced with the Discord Bot, but can also be used just as a stand alone.

UPDATE: V 1.0.0.2 (9/14/2020)

I’m not a fan of the 3d dice style. I much prefer the 2d style.

But the unified character sheets and skill rolling, that could be really nice!

I’m going to point my discord GMs and server operators at this thread and see what they think.

Just started to play around in the vehicle/character sheet portion and I'm liking it so far. I'm currently using SkyJedi's D1C3 bot on Discord but the integrated character sheets and Game Table has me intrigued and I may switch.

One note for development in the character/vehicle sheets. Where the radial dice image appears on the side. You show all the icons except for the force dice symbols. They would be a great addition.

Thanks for the feedback! We do have options to select dice type and size, and if there are enough players that prefer 2d over 3d, we can definitely add that to the list of options.

Yep, we are working on getting those added without making the fan out too crowded! Thanks for the feedback!

I do love this.  I am currently assessing whether I use RPG Sessions or Roll20 to continue my AoR campaign in these crazy times.  

The plus for me for Roll20 is the map and player token integration, also being able to share images, journals etc.  @Joress any suggestions on being able to something similar alongside RPG Sessions, or part of?

This is awesome. My group has been talking about trying out an online system as we have no idea when we can get together and cough on each other's food again, this looks like it might be our tool.

Edit: only just started poking around but is there a way to import from OggDude's tool?

The maps and player tokens are pretty cool in Roll20. We have some similar ideas with the Game Table as we continue to roll it out, but that's still on our todo list. The only think I could suggest, which I use in my games currently, is to post images and maps in Discord. Something like this map. But we totally want to make a map feature in there eventually. I think we have NPC integration, and GM notes next in line.

Any level of Patreon support can get access to the Game Table!

Yep, Warchild1x beat me to the response. 😁 It's currently in development. Progress is going very well! Soonish, indeed!

Great!  I have just supported the Patreon, linked my accounts and now I can see the Game Table.   I will have a play and test 🙂

I recently found the Unicode characters for the Force pips, although their appearance can vary depending on what font you’re using: ◑●◯

Here’s what they looked like on my end, before I pasted them into this website:

Is there a print-friendly copy of the bot command reference? I tried to print the page from my browser and it only prints the first page. 

Think they added a link at the bottom of the rpgsessions page. Where it says Bot Help

Here's the direct link though just in case.

Update!

We just released our Game Table feature to all RPG Sessions users! 

For those who haven't tried it out yet, it's our new real time UI that works both with the Discord bot or as a stand alone tool to allow all the players in your game to see what's going on with your game in real time as if you were actually around a table! It's great for players that don't have a lot of experience with the discord bot and struggle with the command structure since it will post events back to Discord including dice rolls, Destiny/Story point changes and initiative changes.

So far I’ve been really impressed with all of your work. The real test is next Friday when my group will play using your tools. I’m very excited they’ll get to use the game table. 
 

Thanks for investing in such a great system!
