- I am currently looking for a way to GM/Play ... in my area it took me years just to find a D&D game I could join and then I learned I'm not really having fun in that, so... Please sell me on your product, I am desperate for an experience somewhat like I get from playing Neverwinter Nights 1/2, which I didn't even realize I was using like a Virtual Tabletop to find games to DM and play in. Feel free to do your sales person thing on me and convince me this is app I need to play SR4A.
While I'm sure the developer and other users will be happy to share their opinions with you, don't forget that you can always try out the free demo. Check the downloads page for the latest official release or the product releases forum for the latest beta version.
(Currently v1.4i for the official, and v1.4j for the beta).
If finding a GM is the main limiting factor for your gaming, then I recommend looking for or requesting one in the Game Room.
Virtual Tabletop communities still tend to be rather small, so it tends to be better to find one or more groups to play with before you invest in software.
BRPG has an advantage in that area over some VTs on the market in that it has a Floating License feature.
A GM can grant temporary use of his or her Floating Licenses to users connecting with the free demo, allowing them to act as fully licensed players for the duration of the game. This allows random players to join a game using BRPG and play for free as long as the GM is willing to purchase some spare floating licenses.
If you decide BRPG does not suite your needs, then be sure to check out the developer's comprehensive list of other VTs and useful roleplaying software:
