Hum. I guess now I know the hardware is at least working we can try it through roll 20 again next time, but if after a few tries it's still not working then go straight to Skype.

I might look into buying something proper then. Tbh I was amazed these even had one, they were just a Christmas present from my wife so I can play games at night and not annoy everyone (PC is in the bedroom).

Is there say a USB desktop mic out there, something that is both fairly decent and fairly cheap?

I've got one of these:

There are probably better options out there but it seems to do the job. Ironically last night my laptop refused to use anything other than the built in mic, but it seemed to work okay.

Cool, might pick that up in that case. :)

Edit: ordered. Should be up and running by the time we next convene.

Just had a look on the site... looks like all the proper maps and character tokens have been uploaded, looks pretty cool!

Yep, updated the tokens now, it's a good tool when it works properly!

By my calculations you each gain 700xp which should bring you to level 4. I'll check the player's handbook tonight to see what benefits you all get.

Does levelling up refresh all of our spell uses and hit die or will I still have to wait for a long rest?

It's not actually specified in the rules. I tend to say levelling up lets you have all the benefits of a long rest, so back to full health and all spells restored, firstly because it's just simpler that way and secondly because it's more of a reward. One suggestion the rules do emphasise is when in doubt, err on the side of the players, and this seems like a good situation to apply it.

I think I'm going to start branching out with my spells a little so that we have more options available than the 'charge in and kill them all' route.

Right, level 4 details below. At this level there are ability score increases (the six main numbers down the left), which may increase their modifiers and associated skills. e.g. If you increased strength from 15 to 16 then your strength modifier would go from +2 to +3, and any skill or weapon attack/damage that uses strength would also go up by 1. Ability score modifiers are as follows:

8-9 = -1
10-11 = +0
12-13 = +1
14-15 = +2
16-17 = +3
18-19 = +4
20 = +5

Let me know if it doesn't make sense. Might also be worth uploading your new character sheets.


Ellis:
Spoiler: show
Your max HP increases by 1d8 + constitution modifier.

You have two points to spend on your base ability scores (strength, dexterity, constitution, etc), up to a maximum of 20.

You can learn a new bard cantrip and a new bard spell of level 1 or 2. You can also now cast 4 level 1 spells and 3 level 2 spells between long rests.


Van'Skar:
Spoiler: show
Your max HP increases by 1d10 + constitution modifier.

You have two points to spend on your base ability scores (strength, dexterity, constitution, etc), up to a maximum of 20.

You can prepare 1 additional paladin spell (you can still only cast 3 spells between long rests, so it's just another spell for you to choose from).


Slythe:
Spoiler: show
Your max HP increases by 1d8 + constitution modifier.

You have two points to spend on your base ability scores (strength, dexterity, constitution, etc), up to a maximum of 20.

You can learn a new level 1 wizard spell and you can now cast 3 level 1 spells between long rests.

I've got a note on my sheet that says 'd20 + proficiency bonus +2 charisma bonus' under the attack and spellcasting section. I can't for the life of me remember what it's for, and I've not made a roll like that the entire campaign so far. Any ideas, Wrath?

Don't forget to give yourselves an additional hit dice for healing chaps.

Yep, that's your spell attack value. Everyone's proficiency bonus is currently 2. Spell attacks are basically when you cast a spell that attacks something (usually one creature), so you roll a d20 and add a modifier. Your spell save DC (difficulty class) is used when you cast a spell where affected creatures have to make a save, like a wisdom save for the charm spell, and the DC is the number the creature has to roll to make the save. So for each of you it will be:

Ellis and Van'Skar: Spell attack is d20 + prof. bonus + charisma modifier; spell DC is 8 + prof. bonus + charisma modifier

Slythe: Spell attack is d20 + prof. bonus + intelligence modifier; spell DC is 8 + prof. bonus + intelligence modifier

Also, I'm free any night next week so whichever day is best for everyone else is fine by me.
