March RTR News - Event Announcements and Questions from Members

A online monthly newsletter about what is happening with RTR and what we're planning for the month and in the future. Also, I'll field questions and comments about RTR and gaming in general.

This will be exclusive to Google Hangout users, but it will be recorded onto YouTube for viewing by all RTR members.

This a pilot Meetup that I hope will be of use to members and organizers alike.

    @Robert - If I can find the time, I'll do a recorded recap session via Hangout. We had some Q&A, but I wasn't taking notes.

      I took a few notes. I'll post them when I get home later tonight.

    @Eric, could you do a quick recording of March RTR News - Event Announcements and the top Q&A's from the event, so we have a recording of it and can share the info to member who could not make the google hangout?

    March 6, 2013

    • Melissa M.

      Some things that were discussed are going to be lost. We had members discuss the games they are running for Free RPG Day. Tom talked about the types of campaigns he is hoping to play in. I talked about my upcoming campaign. There was a lot of member participation, which is great. It's just not possible to recreate that unfortunately.

    My suggestion for future participants: please mute your mic whenever you are not speaking. We had some feedback issues. Also the main camera focus (the person whose video feed is the large one on top) changes when ever Google believes you are speaking. If you're making noise inadvertently and not trying to speak, Google still shifts focus to you. If you mute yourself, it won't shift from the person actually speaking to you, when you're doing nothing but rocking in your chair or mumbling to your cat.

    It still sounds like everyone enjoyed the technology. I'll take partial blame as I was to document the process.

  • Eric

    @Everyone - *Hanging head low...* I forgot to hit the broadcast button, so this one was not recorded. Still learning the new technology.

    This meet turned out good -- I enjoyed talking with everyone and some good information and good ideas were exchanged. Look forward to the next one!

    Why do I feel like I'm running late or missing something?

    March 5, 2013

    • Pete B.

      Nope..... not sure what happened.

      March 5, 2013

    • Eric

      We'll continue this Meet from here on out, so we'll iron out any of the wrinkles we're running into. I also added you to my circle.

    @Everyone - Last reminder to add me to your circles if you wish to attend this Meetup.

    March 5, 2013

    • Pete B.

      So are we using the RTR circle for the hangout meetup?

      March 5, 2013

    • Eric

      @Pete - Go ahead and do that first -- my circle is the backup plan.

    March 4, 2013

    • Eric

      @Stewart - I am correct that people can sign into the RTR group and I can create the Hangout and invite them from there?

      March 4, 2013

    • Eric

      Go Canes!

      March 4, 2013

  • Pete B.

    Won't be able to make the Casual Meet (nanny quit on us). But still want to take part in the hangout.

    March 4, 2013

  • Eric

    As a reminder, if you would like to participate, please add me to your Google Circle. Also, Stewart - Jonn and I will need to talk to you tonight at the Casual Meet about using the RTR Google site and how to set up hangouts there.
