I can think of these: The tablet migh be damaged in the process in passing from hand to hand The tablet could be damaged by players' drinks at the table if they spill You might not find pictures of specific things (or not close enough to the real thing) that will then appear as something that's missing ("Man I wish we had the picture of the sexy barmaid in ...

Roll20 supports running a game with multiple game masters. The caveat, as I understand it, is that all the players will be on the same page, while the game masters can work on any page. The creator of the game will need to be a subscriber to Roll20 if you need any subscriber features for your campaign.

I recommend using the Dice Roller here: http://catchyourhare.com/diceroller/ It allows you to share a password, and then roll and manipulate dice on a virtual tabletop. This works really well for Dogs, because you all roll your piles of dice (each player using a different color) and then they can move them around as they are used in the conflict, and ...

Skype allows multiple streams; I use it to tutor my brother, who lives far from me, and he shares both his screen (so I can see what he's working on) and his webcam (so I can see his face). Recently, they added multiple video chat, but I've never used it with the screen-sharing function so I'm not 100% sure it will allow both multiple recipients and two ...

A simple DIY solution might be to just stream your desktop, but also run a program that displays your webcam in a window on your desktop. Then you can toggle between windows as needed, or possibly even find a way to pin the webcam view on top of the other windows. Edit: I don't know what OS you're using, and you can Google as easily as I can, but a quick ...

You can also look at zoom (zoom.com) but it does cost a little money. It works fairly nicely as I use it for business. Although I rarely use the chat typing functionality and opt for the microphone. It does have one however.

Google hangouts. Invite yourself twice, mute one instance. When I've presented at conferences, remotely, I've driven two instances of google hangouts in exactly this way. So long as you've got one of the instances' audio completely cut out (I recommend the screenshare), and enough bandwidth to push both, you're just fine. You have to use multiple google ...

My group uses a private Google+ community to organise the games, and G+ alongside Roll20 to play the games. We play entirely online on a weekly basis, mainly because we're all about the same age and have small children and families, so it's difficult to get together for a face to face game. For D&D 5th Ed you're pretty spoiled for choice, but when it ...

I am currently playing a 5th edition game as DM but with only 2 players - a long-time D&D associate and my 12 year old son who is new to the hobby. Even though he lives in the same house as me, he remotes in from a different room because the remote participant kept getting cross-talk from our mikes if we were in the same room. We are using roll20.net ...

I once had a game for DnD 3.5 that was entirely remote - it was run in Facebook comments. Several things the DM did to manage the situation: Each situation was a new post. When a new situation arose (new area, meeting a new NPC, start/end of a conflict) a new post was posted. The DM managed all the rolls. To avoid player cheating, the DM was the one that ...

I've always used Google Sheets. It's helpful to have it autocalculate any stats possible, and you can create a shared folder in google drive so that the DM can have access to all of the players Character sheets, Backstory, Images, and anything else added to the folder.
