Quick question about Roll20 and AS&SH

Is anyone playing there and if so where do you set up games as there is game specific search function?  I looked under AD&D ED and 2nd and also under OD&D.

How hard would it be to get name specific search on Roll20?

Re: Quick question about Roll20 and AS&SH

I'm in a roll20 game and I'm setting up to run my own -- no date yet to start, though.

Unfortunately, AS&SH isn't one of their searchable games yet, understandable since the game has only been out a few years. I rather wish they would separate the AD&D Oe/1e and Second Edition categories.

Edited because games apparently default to private now.

Re: Quick question about Roll20 and AS&SH

Roll20 generally works on what's popular. If enough of us go and tell them we want to be in the list of searchable games the more likely it is to happen. 

Has anyone seen one? Has anyone seen one in a hundred years??

For what it's worth there is an AS&SH character sheet available for roll20.

What? Me worry?

Re: Quick question about Roll20 and AS&SH

Hey Kradonus, I'm running an AS&SH game on Roll20 (Jimm's playing in it) and created the character sheet gizmo mentioned (see sig, it still needs work but it's functional enough that I forget about the things that need fixing when playing).

When I setup the LFG listing I listed it under AD&D 1e and 2e (agree with Jim, those should be separate categories) and "Other Games", and then listed the name of the game as AS&SH.  That's about the best you can do on making it searchable for now, until they list AS&SH as it's own game.

I'd love to see this game become more popular on Roll20.  If anyone is in need of any resources for running it, talk to me.  I've created a lot of handouts and macros and other stuff in game that helps me run it easily and I'd be happy to share any of that.

Re: Quick question about Roll20 and AS&SH

A lot of folks (not nec. for AS&SH, but in general) run the games through G+ Hangouts and use Roll20 for the visual functions. So you might want to check the AS&SH Community on G+ if you're looking for a game.
