Last nite we added a new player to our Castles & Crusades via Fantasy Grounds group. Our DM is an American living in Spain, I'm in New York, another is in Michigan, one in LA, the newest is an Aussie I do believe. Damn, left one out I think. You couldn't get a group like that together around the dining room table if you wanted to ;)
In the four hours we played, we made a few Siege Checks but not a single combat roll. Role Playing and puzzle solving were the main course. In retrospect, that's kind of amazing, especially as I didn't even realize we had no combat until we wrapped up after midnite. Another great job by Rob, our DM.
We did change one thing... we are no longer voting on Roleplay Bonus expo for the other players. We decided that the group roleplays pretty well already, and we don't need the carrot. If there is a bonus to be given out, its back in Rob's hands.
Next session is in about 4 weeks. Should be another blast.
