To set the scene for this post, up until recently I was planning on running a White Star campaign called Star Hex, the idea was to do a sort-of Star Trek inspired campaign using White Star and the Five Year Mission supplement; we got as far as doing a session 0 and starting to generate characters when (unfortunately) changes in my circumstances meant that I wouldn’t be able to spend as much time running RPGs. Since I’m already running a Star Wars game the only real alternative for myself was to cancel the Star Hex game; this is unfortunate since I was looking forward to it, however, it looks as those–besides my Star Wars campaign–I’m only really going to have time to do one-shots in the future.
In this video tutorial–requested by Caius Wallen–I show how you can use Xsplit to create a Discord/Roll20 screen for recording or streaming TT RPG sessions online. This tutorial assumes you have basic knowledge of Discord, Xsplit and Roll20.
In order you use this tutorial you will need a Discord account, a copy of Xsplit (the free one is fine) and a Roll20 account with a game already set up.
