Well, nobody died. We had our third player join us, and now the fielded party consists of a cleric, magic-user, and assassin with the cleric towing along an NPC fighter retainer.
Sadly, we lost a shit load of playing time. My computer, for some reason, stopped letting me access any non-Google site or app. This meant that I kept dropping off Discord. It also meant that my Wizardawn generated map was lost, even after I managed to restore internet.
The party found a little treasure, a nonlethal trap, and some slightly unsettling set dressing. They wisely avoided both fights. The first fight they could've won (a single giant killer bee), but the second could very well have been a party wipe (10 armored skeletons!)
A few other thoughts:
-Goog's Jam Board isn't bad for real-time mapping, even if I am terrible at drawing. I might ask our artist player to do the actual mapping. She somehow managed to draw one of the monsters as I struggled to make straight hallways.
-I understand that Roll20 probably needs people to get paid subscriptions, but maaaaaaaaaaan the free mapping tool is fucking awful.
-Although we are gaming digitally, I go analog in any way I can. I have my OSE books physically with me at the table, I roll physical dice (the players use the dice roller app in R20), and I even started drawing a new substitute map on graph paper. (I abandoned that when I realized that I'd have to draw everything on the map twice- once on paper, once on Jam.)
-The Dungeon Alphabet, Dungeon Dozen, and Wilderness Alphabet are all at the table with me and helped me add some high weirdness to the dungeon and its surrounding environs.
We didn't get as far as I wanted, and we're not playing until the week after next. I know I've said it before, but I *hate* online gaming.
