As a DM, I am not very fond of having some players "remote in" through my laptop/webcam, but due to everyone's busy schedule, I've recently made a rule to allow one person per session, first person to call it gets it.

Is this fair and reasonable to do?

    \$\begingroup\$ Welcome to the site! Take the tour. Whether something is fair or reasonable isn't usually something the site can answer objectively. Fair or reasonable for one group isn't always fair and reasonable for another. However, this is a good topic for a discussion site like one of these in this link. If you were to rephrase this question with a lot more information (group composition, layout of the playspace, game system, and maybe even the limits of your electronics—to start!) the site may be able to handle it. Good luck and have fun! \$\endgroup\$ Commented Jan 24, 2019 at 20:09
  • \$\begingroup\$ Indeed... I have some strong, experienced-based opinions on mixing remote and local play... but the question doesn't really ask for that. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ @T.J.L. Your experiences would probably be valuable to the site. Consider asking and also answering a question like What are the advantages and disadvantages of having a mixed group of local and remote players? or something similar. Perhaps even the user who asked this question would find such information valuable! \$\endgroup\$ Commented Jan 24, 2019 at 21:11
