Ok, the scenario is Gang Fight(page 110)
Since there's 3 of us, each of us fights both ways. No alliances.

This is the map.

Everyone rolls a d6. The lowest roll gets to pick their corner of the table first.
Everyone sets up in 8" from their chosen corner.

Then we roll another d6 and the highest roll gets to go first.

As the scenario goes, the goal is just to shoot everyone else...
My result for deployment is 6, so I choose last.
My result for turn sequnce is 3.

edit: The brown squares are barrels. They're 1" high. Green sludge is difficult terrain, so people move trough it at half speed.

I have a pair of 4s, so I get second choice for placement and I... go first? I'm not sure if that's a benefit or not, but still.

Oh, and the "gang" I'll be bringing to this is a Patrol team of the Arbites - they're actually here to stop the trouble and lock everyone up bang-in-the-slammer, SORTED!

Specifically: Jenny, Plex, Domina, Styx and Flair.

I'll take the lower left.

Ok. Before I make a thread for the game itself, I have a few doubts about the placement.

Are you okay with having to save the map to your disk, open it with a image editing program and mark where your units stand exactly?
Or should I be sending the MapTool's save file around?

Come to think of it, this could be a bit time-consuming either way...

I can probably do either.

I just realised though that I don't have counters done up for my gang. Is there a generic set I can use for the moment?

I must be doing something wrong with this, as I can't seem to get the maptool doing what the manual says it should be. Would it be ok if I gave you positions for my gang, and you added them in?

Okay, you can both contact me if you'll have any problems setting something up.
If it won't work out, I'll apologize and admit I'm stupid, but it's worth a try.

Well, it's the most recent version. Not really sure what I can do. If it works for the two of you though, I can always sit this fight out, and join in once we can get me joined in.

Worst-case scenario? We simply edit the most recent image in Paint/Photoshop/whatever.

(I've been busy trough the weekend, here I am now)

Okay, I'll be honest and admit this might be a bit unplayable, the way I envisioned it.
I forgot that with using MSPaint we'd be unable to use proper measuring and all that.

I'm sorry to you both, but I think playing a game like Necromunda trough forums won't work. Something very 2d like Gothic could maybe work, but otherwise, it wouldn't really cut it.

Mind you, I'm still up for playing this live.
Hairy, if you still care to, let me know and I'll see if your stuff will work in client mode. It probably will.
Kongming, please forgive me for whetting your apetite like this. Don't spank me? (too hard?)

Timezones would probably make a live game hard to arrange, and my time isn't the best right now. Probably better to set this one aside for the moment.

Thats not to say you can't do something similar. I created and ran a strategic type Stargate game, which worked quite well both around a table and remotely online too.
