    Weapons grade preview image. +1, look forward to watching.

  2. Excellent episode as always! I was really glad to hear shout outs for some good software that I don’t hear much about on Linux podcasts like Standard Notes and MPV. As far as the /opt and /usr discussion goes, /usr is /UnixSystemResources and not /User if I remember correctly so, that might shed some light on the conflicting information Ryan had on what goes where in the file system…Though maybe not for the developer :wink:

  3. You got me. I will try out Standard Notes. It is time to use an encrypted service.

  4. You guys mentioned Fantasy Grounds Unity. There’s also FoundryVTT ( It’s what my group uses now. It’s a one time purchase and completely DRM free. You simply run the server (on Linux naturally :slight_smile: ) and players connect to it in their browser.

    There’s also the Open Source MapTools (MapTool | RPTools). It has the best mapping system of all the options but is weak in just about every other element.

    I purchased Fantasy Grounds pre Unity for $150 after asking the devs how much the upgrade would cost on release. They said a nominal fee of $10-$20. It’s actually $90. It might be petty but I feel a little slighted by them.

  5. FoundryVTT is nice and has made strides in the D&D community to integrate some real professional looking modules, maps and map assets. It suffers from a tiny dev team which, if it wasn’t so cheap, would scare me off.

    Fantasy Grounds held some aggressive sales that were imho poorly timed before the reveal of Fantasy Grounds Unity which just so happens to not be covered under the lifetime licenses. It’s a great app but that left a bad taste in my mouth.

    Im still looking for a competent open source VTT that is web based.


    To echo a sentiment from a recent DL episode: I would be willing to pay actual hundreds of dollars for a self-hostable, free and open source, web based VTT, which has a client for mobile tablet devices.
