Pre-game setup

Do these steps before meeting online.

Roll20: Introduction screen

Get intro card, place it face down.

Make sure players ribbon is on Introduction.

Roll20: Character creation screen

Deal character cards, face up.

Deal drive cards, face down.

Add secret to character sheets.

Roll20: Starting hunches screen

Deal them out onto the correct spaces, face up.

Roll20: Clues cards screen

Roll20: Gameplay screen

Send character cards, ask players to choose their characters. As soon as they're chosen, send drive cards.

Once drive cards are sent, send your background and ask everyone to send in theirs.

Ask players to record voicemail messages and send them.


Also, encourage the players to have their voicemail tie into their secret, but leave a substantial amount. I tell players to take their time but to try and record about a two-minute message.


Click this link to create a Discord server with channels set up for playing Alice is Missing:

Invite the players to the Discord server, and ask them to change their server nickname to match their character name. Doing so helps make the game more immersive, and means that people don't have to remember which character other people are playing.

Ask about lines and veils. Create a message listing them in the #group_chat channel, then pin that message. Do the same in the #ooc_chatter channel.


SoundFX can be used to play them in Discord.

Upload the files before the game.
