My group is in Saltaire (near Bradford), Ipswich, London and Mansfield. And i am in the Yorkshire Dales. So face to face games only happen a couple of times per year!

I personally use Fantasy Grounds, which i find fantastic, and there is a very good AFF ruleset available.

I like the look of fantasy Grounds, but Roll20 is free. I am sure some of us could put our heads together and create a character sheet for Roll20, it would sit in the menu right next to Advanced Dungeons and Dragons because its alphabetical listing and that could only give the game more visibilty in the gaming community.

Roll20 offers the option of creating your favourite game's character sheet that then works in game - so your skills etc generate dice rolls when you click on them. It isn't vital, we just roll dice in the game function and they have normal character sheets. I just think it would give AFF a bit more publicity being on roll20, and it would be nice to be able to use proper character sheets in the game, with a nice bit of art on it, the odd skull, pile of gold, jewels and sword etc

We do Googlehangouts so its all internet video. Would do face to face but my group is all round the country and world now :cry:

I still use the adventure sheets but change them digitally:

That sheet (minus the crumpled paper) was posted on the AFF Google+ page so I tweaked it but it looks great and I just edit values in Acrobat.

I lived in Hull until few hours ago... close enough for a face to face game every now and then... :roll:
