Given our setup, I can't easily show "the other side" the map in real-time, and they can't add to it themselves. How have you solved this problem in your games? I didn't, because I never had that problem when I used tele-presence for DFRPG. Maps are not crucial to the Fate experience nor even the specific Dresden iteration where locations are written ...

Draw straight onto the map! Using Google My Maps, you can create your own map overlays over any place on Google Maps, draw onto it with simple lines and polygons, and add markers for locations as needed. Each of the features (markers, lines and polygons) added to the map can be given a label and a description, which everyone with map access will be able ...

While this doesn't solve all of your potential problems, this is how my gaming group solved the problem of collaborative city creation in DFRPG.

If you want to create a courtroom-like feeling, I would strongly recommend to look at the way the Fatebased rpg Diaspora handles that.

"Attacks" move other markers, ...

Courts interpret the law, they don't enact or enforce it. This sounds much more like a town-hall meeting, which will probably enforce some variant on Robert's Rules of Order. To a certain degree, trying to shift things once the meeting has begun will be a waste of time -- many of the key decision makers will already have their positions locked in place. ...

First of all, I want to inform that City Creation system in Dresden Files is not something unique. Similar methods are used by more experienced developers for nearly everything. It is not my own words, but from many other developers and even publishing companies. I used nearly identical rules while creating or helping with setting and their worlds, with ...
